It may be the beginning of September but the weather is still warm so I’m still eating ice cream or correction, I’m still testing ice cream especially when it’s on sale for less than $4. Have you ever seen the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream? I have but I would never ever pay regular price for it. Just recently, it went on sale so I decided it was worthy of a taste test.
Now, our whole family likes coconut so it’ll be interesting to see if this PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream holds up to our spoiled taste buds.
Product Review: What ingredients are in the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream?
Here are the ingredients that went into making this PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream: cream, milk, sugar, frozen egg yolk (contains sugar), toasted coconut (sulphites), coconut cream, water, dextrose, natural flavour, modified corn starch, corn starch, salt. May contain peanuts and tree nuts. Ice cream base made with 100% canadian milk.
Well, my thoughts on the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream? Considering it’s their Black Label line, I’m glad to see that cream and milk are the top two ingredients on the list. While I’m not a big fan of sugar showing up 3 times in the forms of sugar, sugar within the frozen egg yolk and dextrose, I’ve definitely seen worse ingredients in other brands of ice cream. Coconut also shows up twice on the list and not at the end of it so that’s another good sign. Let’s just hope it tastes good!
Product Review: How does PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream taste?
Here’s what the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream looks like. Unlike some of the other coconut frozen treats we’ve tested, this one appears a lot more yellow which I guess might be from the use of cream and the frozen egg yolks.
Our opinion of the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream? Well, it tastes okay and certainly has a distinct coconut taste. The ice cream is a solid ice cream that isn’t frothy or too aerated which is a good thing (I still shudder from that Breyer’s review I did eons ago). The PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream is sweet and the toasted coconut adds a noticeable texture to an otherwise smooth and well balanced ice cream.
And yet…we’re not doing back flips.
Well, the hubby’s first reaction: the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream but that it has an odd after taste. He also said it tasted a little gummy. As for me, I liked the taste of the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream but there is something else in it that makes it taste off and it’s not just the aftertaste. I don’t know what the ‘natural flavour’ is that goes into the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream but I think that may be what’s throwing it off. It’s almost like it’s got an excess of vanilla extract or SOMETHING but it’s not just a cut and dry coconut ice cream. We eat a lot of coconut and none of it ever tastes like this.
The hubby tried it again the next day and so did I and our opinion didn’t change much. The PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream still tasted odd. As for my big kid, she flat out said she didn’t like it.
Would I buy the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream ever again? NOPE and that’s even if it was on sale. There is something odd about its taste that just doesn’t appeal to our family. Others might like its signature flavour but it’s just not for us. For 1/2 cup (125 mL) serving to give me 32% of my daily intake of fat, I’d better like it and sadly, this ice cream just isn’t worth it.
Sorry, PC, this taste test didn’t work out as well as we’d hoped!
