Freeze dried ice cream….mmm?

What would the world be like with out ice cream?

One of my favorite things about ice cream is when I add a little milk to it and it forms into sweet crystallized clumps of deliciousness! Or add some marshmallows, stir it up, and let it sit for a little bit so the marshmallows can harden and they are nice and chewy! What is your favorite way to eat ice cream? Could Freeze dried ice cream ever bring you that kind of satisfaction? Good question.

Could freeze dried ice cream ever suffice?

I have to admit before taking my first bite of a freeze dried ice cream sandwich… okay, I’ll be honest, from the moment I saw them on the shelf in the store my thoughts were:

  1. Gross
  2. Really?
  3. What in the world would that taste like?
  4. Should I try it?
  5. No
  6. Yes
  7. How could I not?!
  8. Oh, buy it already!

The challenge:

The taste test really was a family affair. Every one was curious as to what they would taste like so we chopped them up into pieces and passed the plate of freeze dried ice cream sandwich around. I think all our faces looked the same, like, “what am I doing? This is weird.” We popped them into our mouth. Each of our eye brows loosened up and actually began to raise. Every ones reactions were the same, “Wow, that’s pretty good!” Then we passed around the Neapolitan ice cream. It was surprisingly good too! I knew then and there that we needed some freeze dried ice cream in our food storage!

The result!

Freeze dried ice cream doesn’t give you the same cool sensation you receive from regular ice cream, but the taste is exactly the same!
