I've been craving for some ice-cream due to the heat the past few days and haven't really felt like eating anything else but watermelon or ice-cream. While at the grocery store, I thought I would get some ice cream since I had one too many water melon already. Haggen-Dazs was on sale for $3.50, but none of the flavors really appealed to me. Being a foodie, I enjoy flavors that have more to offer than just plain strawberry or vanilla bases. I happened to look down and see that Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream was on sale for $2.29. The flavor sounded great and the price was wonderful, but how would Starbucks Java Chips Ice Cream actually taste?
Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream Review: Taste
Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream is the best coffee ice cream I have ever tasted. The coffee flavor is rich, dark, and perfectly sweetened. The chunks of chocolate enhance the flavor and are the perfect contrast. You can also tell that this brand is made with a cream that has a high butter fat content. Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream is the creamiest brand I have ever tasted.
Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream Review: Texture
As I mentioned above, Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream seems to be made with cream that has a high butter fat content. What this means, besides great flavor, is that the product is scoopable straight from the freezer. Brands that are made with less butter fat content setup like a rock in the freezer. A perfect example of this is low-fat ice cream. Because Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream has such a great texture in its base, that the chocolate chunks add a nice crunch and contrast.

Normally, Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream costs $5.90 for a quart. This is a price I would not pay. But, my local grocery store has decided to stop carrying this product. Thus, it was on sale for $2.29. While this is an amazing product, $5.90 seems outrageous.
Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream Review: Satisfaction Rating
I would have to give Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream 4 stars. The flavor and texture are unbelievable. Truthfully, I would have given this product 5 stars, but the price prevents me from doing that. If you have the extra cash, by all means buy Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream on a regular basis. But, if you're like me, I suggest waiting until it goes on sale.
