Trader Joe’s Golden Caramel Swirl in French Vanilla & Chocolate Ice Cream Review

Trader Joe's Golden Caramel Swirl in French Vanilla & Chocolate Ice Cream

The entire concept behind Freezer Meal Frenzy is to sample as much frozen food as we can and then write detailed reviews of our findings. While we do stray from the freezer aisle every once in a while (for example, we just had to try Devour’s line of dry macaroni), we do mostly review food that is frozen.

Since ice cream is a frozen food, we definitely don’t think it’s out of place on this site. So today, we’re very excited to be cooling off with the Trader Joe’s Golden Caramel Swirl in French Vanilla & Chocolate Ice Cream.

This ice cream has the term “Super Premium” printed on the carton, and while this seems a little over-the-top, we think it’s justified. This is an absolutely fantastic carton of ice cream.

The quality of the ice cream is amazing. The package says it’s made from milk from cows not treated with rBST, which we can’t really confirm using just our taste buds. What we can say, however, is that the french vanilla portion is wonderfully sweet and surprisingly flavorful, while the chocolate portion is thick and rich. We did find the balance to lean pretty heavily in favor of the vanilla portion, so if you’re expecting something super chocolatey, you might be a little bit let down. However, the overall flavor quality is so high here that we don’t think you’re going to complain.

But the real kingmaker in this ice cream is the caramel. This comes in thick streaks that stay ooey-gooey even when frozen. Not only does it taste fantastic, but the consistency is incredibly satisfying. This is some top-notch caramel.

The Trader Joe’s Golden Caramel Swirl in French Vanilla & Chocolate Ice Cream is the stuff dreams are made of. Whether you’re trying to beat the heat or are just sneaking a sweet treat late at night, we think this ice cream is the perfect thing.
