If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of the PC Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice cream (if you haven’t read it yet, here it is click here ) so when I found a different type of PC ice cream with peanut butter, you know I had to try it. The  PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream looked really promising at my local Loblaws with peanut butter cups, chocolate and vanilla ice cream and a peanut butter ribbon? I mean, how could I NOT try it? So, yes, despite my previous update that you’d start to see fewer summery treats reviewed, I just couldn’t resist and had to try the PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream before the end of summer since it’s still technically summer, right?

Product review: PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream vs. PC Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice cream

A quick comparison of the two different flavours of PC ice cream shows one significant difference. The PC Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice cream comes in a smaller 946mL tub vs. the PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream comes in a 1.65L tub. The price difference accommodates for the size difference so for me, it’s not a big deal.
Next comes the reveal: I open the PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream and the next thing I notice is that there’s a LOT of chocolate ice cream in my batch and I can barely see any vanilla ice cream. Compared to the PC Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice cream, this one seems more decadent on appearance alone. I have yet to taste it. That’s the next step.


Product review: PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream – Taste Test

I scoop myself some of the PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream and take a bite and um…well, it tastes like chocolate, a LOT of chocolate. I can sort of taste some peanut butter trying to make a presence in those little mini peanut butter cups but it’s not really working for me. Vanilla? I don’t notice it at all.  While I really really like all the little miniature peanut butter cups in the ice cream, they are completely overshadowed by the overbearing chocolate ice cream.
Winner of the taste test: PC Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice cream wins for its noticeable peanut butter flavour and well balanced nature. This of course is because its main base is peanut butter ice cream, not chocolate. On top of that, it also has a peanut butter ripple and has chocolate pieces. For me, this reverse mix up leads to a much more balanced flavour.


Verdict:

Would I ever buy the PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream again? Probably not and it’s not because it doesn’t taste good but because the PC Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice cream is sooooooooooooooo much better. I guess it’s the difference between the age old question of, “Do you like chocolate with your peanut butter or do you like peanut butter with your chocolate?”  I fall into the first camp: I like a touch of chocolate with my peanut butter. If you happen to really love chocolate and only want a hint of peanut butter than this PC Loads of Chocolatey Peanut Butter Treats Ice Cream might be more up your alley.
Again, both ice creams are delicious and by far taste better than most of the other ones I’ve had this summer (you know who you are) so if you want to squeeze in another ice cream treat before summer is over, you know you have at least 2 more options!
