Final Rating: 10/10. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are my favorite candy. Reese’s peanut butter is a sacred candy flavor. Anything less than perfection would have been simply unacceptable for me. But you know what? Carvel NAIIIIIIILED it. The ice cream tasted exactly like Reese’s peanut butter. God Bless you Carvel for making this old junk food reviewer’s heart soar and reminding him why he’s in the food review game.

Final Rating: 7.6/10. The fruit flavored part of the pop is weeeeeeak. Way too watery for my tastes. But the saving grace of the pop is the Tootsie center. It’s probably just your typical fudgesicle, but it tastes like it has some Tootsie Roll flavoring because my brain can get tricked easily. If Popsicle improves the fruit part of the pop, they have themselves a winner (but nothing beats Choco Tacos or WWF Ice Cream Bars)

Final Rating: 8.4/10.  You cannot go wrong with Samoas.  They are the best girl scout cookie ever.  There will be no debating this.  I just need Breyers to stop being such cheap bastards and load their ice cream up with cookies a la Ben & Jerry’s.

This is another example of there being jussssst not enough flavor in the ice cream.  Nutella usually has a chocolate burst with a subtle hint of hazelnut.  The ice cream had the chocolate part down pat, but the hazelnut was a little slow to arrive.

When the ice cream melted a little bit, I drank it out of the cup like it was soup broth (AKA like a savage).  For some reason, the hazelnut flavor was much more evident when eating the ice cream like this.  If all of the ice cream tasted like this, the rating would go up to an 8.9.

A few other things to note:

1. When eating Carvel ice cream, you have to go with the Carvel plastic spoon.  It doesn’t matter whether you eat at the store or at home.  They are the smoothest spoons in the world.

2. Ice cream is always better when it’s soft and soupy.  Messy, but better.

3. If you are going to Carvel for a cake, you better be getting Cookie Puss or Fudgie The Whale.  Anything less would be uncivilized.

4. For some reason, I used a million commas in this blog.  I, don’t, know, why.

5. The old Carvel Ice Cream song was straight baby making music back in the day.  There have to be a million kids named Carvel that were born 9 months after this commercial first aired.
