Stewart's Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream


So I swung by Stewart's this morning on my way home from work (I work nights) to buy some lickies and chewies for my younguns'.  As generations of fathers have done I generally try to assuage my guilt at missing holidays (I have to work tonight too) by plying my children with ice cream and candy. Little Giblet has a soft spot in her heart for Junior Mints and vanilla ice cream and Mr. Dave Jr. is plum tickled by pretty much any edible substance.

I was peeking in the ice cream case when I saw some hand-labeled pints of "Pumpkin Pie." I am not crazy about the Thanksgiving gimmick of making pumpkin flavored everything, but I trusted that good ol' Stewart's had done it right.


Here we have a pale orange ice cream spotted with nice sized chunks of graham-y/pie crust-y sorts of things. The stuff had a strong "pie spice" kind of flavor which was somewhat less nasty than your work-a-day attempt at "pumpkin pie" flavor.


I found it a bit over sweet, but altogether not bad at all. This is probably the only Thanksgiving type food I will consume today as my family has decided to time warp the holiday to Saturday. I am kind of jealous of all the people out there worrying and fussing over their various holiday dishes, sigh...

Anyhow, happy holiday all! I wish upon you moist turkey and unburnt baked goods!

  1. If it's any consolation, the Fussies are also engaged in a time warp of sorts. Our family gathering is on Saturday. So tonight there is a very store bought Thanksgiving dinner supplemented with a few choice homemade items.

    The kids (and wife) are thrilled with the rare can of reddi-whip that makes it past the door of the house, not to mention the store bought pie. We'll be eating much better tomorrow and on Saturday.

    Best to you and yours. And I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm a little jealous of your Stewart's pumpkin ice cream.

    1. There was still plenty at the Delaware Ave. Delmar Stewart's! Go get some, I think they are open till 9. It would taste very good with ReddiWhip. Happy Fussygiving to you and yours.
