As a blogger, sometimes I get to review some of the most amazing products and recently I had a chance to review something I am seriously excited about – Adirondack Creamery ice cream! I was lucky enough to try their holiday flavors – Peppermint Stick, Pumpkin Pie, Egg Nog – and their newest (and coolest) addition, Caramel Apple.
I don’t know about you, but I am a hardcore ice cream fan and I don’t just like any ice cream – I can get pretty picky about which frozen confection earns my stamp of approval. I hate having ice cream that tastes too heavy on the sugar – which really takes away from the simple beauty of what ice cream is. Well, Adirondack Creamery makes ice cream that is right up my alley – sweet (but not so sweet that you need a glass of water afterwards), creamy, and comforting – oh, and locally made!
My favorite flavor from their seasonal selection was the Pumpkin Pie – I love pumpkin pie any time of year but especially during colder months and this satisfies both my pie and my ice cream cravings. Based off Adirondack Creamery owner Paul Nasrani’s mother’s pumpkin pie recipe – this one is creamy, full of smooth pumpkin flavor – with warm hints of holiday spices, and just plain amazing.
The Egg Nog and Peppermint Stick ice cream were massive hit’s at my house during the holidays – we bought some to stock up for after the season too. The Egg Nog is a delicious frozen rendition of the favorite holiday drink and the Peppermint Stick is minty and creamy without being too strong.
As a New Yorker, I’m really really excited about their limited addition Caramel Apple. Made with 100% local ingredients, their Caramel Apple ice cream was inspired by the apple orchards of the Hudson Valley (which I pick from every fall!). Using Empire Apples from local Wright’s Farm, milk from Hudson Valley Farms, and sea salt caramel from Cooper Street Kitchen in Stone Ridge, NY, Adirondack Creamery has put together a perfect homage to autumns in New York.
