Carmen's Best Artisanal Ice Cream's New Flavor: Brown Butter Almond Brittle

Butter Pecan, Malted Milk, Salted Caramel, Kahlua Coffee, Cereal Milk, Hazelnut Fudge, Madagascar Vanilla, Pistachio Almond Fudge...just some of my favorites from Carmen's Best Artisanal Ice Cream. And now I can add one more flavor in my growing list of favorites from Carmen's Best... 

Carmen's Best Artisanal Ice Cream introduces its newest flavor, Brown Butter Almond Brittle...and it's good. Seriously good.

After picking up my precious pint and storing it in the freezer for a day, it was time to open it up...

...and it's looking good. Despite the long drive the other day, my pint held up pretty well. And no ice crystals. And that's because Carmen's Best is made from 100% fresh cow's milk and cream delivered daily from their family farm, so each pint remains creamy and velvety smooth, the way ice cream should be. Available only in small tubs, each batch is made the old-fashioned way, with no artificial flavorings or colorings, thickeners or prepared mixes, just the freshest milk, cream and premium quality ingredients from all over the world.

I slowly dip my spoon in the tub, and up comes a smooth, creamy spoonful with almonds and deep golden syrupy streaks of brown butter. Each creamy spoonful delivers a rich and silky mouthfeel, as the cream and brown butter blends in your mouth, contrasting with the crunch of the sweet sugar coated almond brittle. The brown butter really comes through adding to the overall creamy profile of Carmen's Best's new flavor, and it works. Pure indulgence in a pint.

And before you know it, you're halfway through the pint, as you go for even more. And then, it's done. And it's the same every time I go through a pint of Carmen's Best, you're just, well, happy. That kind of feeling when you've had probably the metro's best artisanal ice cream made from the freshest and most premium ingredients. Made in small batches, it's just like having your very own batch, made just for you. Time to schedule another pick-up run at Carmen's Best. Soon.

  1. Great review. I first saw Carmen's Best on a friend's FB page and she's distributing these in Pampanga. I can't wait to try it.
