Last year I tried my first Brown Paper Packages ice cream sandwich and I wasn’t too impressed but I spotted them at the Food Cart Fest and I thought I’d give them another go (yes this is a very late post).
They offered 5 flavours and also a sundae. Their logo is pretty cute!
They had a sign with the White Turtle and the Peanut Butter Cup on display so I was sold on getting those two!
The White Turtle has vanilla bean ice cream sandwiched between a double chocolate, sea salt, caramel and pecan cookie. Not sure if you can tell but these are hefty in size and weight! Also, very frozen! But that’s ok, I don’t like fast melting ice cream. The ice cream is so solid that you don’t have the problem where you press down on the cookies and then the ice cream squishes out. In fact, I couldn’t fit the whole thing in my mouth in one bite so I was basically nibbling the top and then the middle and then the bottom…
The Peanut Butter Cup had chocolate ice cream with a peanut butter and toffee chocolate cookie. As you can see here the cookie was a bit crumbly but the rest of it held up well. Both flavours were as advertised and I liked them both. I had a hard time deciding which one was better! I think I favoured the White Turtle just a bit more though. After all the other food I ate at the Food Cart Fest I was barely able to finish this. The struggle was real.
My experience with Brown Paper Packages was much more enjoyable this time! Read about my last visit here where I thought the cookie part tasted weird. They are available for purchase at Pazzo Chow.
