I'm sorry, but I am definitely that person that says, "I need something sweet" two minutes after finishing dinner. I have a major sweet tooth, and ice cream always satisfies my cravings. I'm a Blue Bell and H-E-B girl at heart, but I've used Amazon Fresh a lot recently, leaving me with various options I haven't tried yet, which led me to Aplenty Ice Cream.
Aplenty launched last spring as Amazon's new food brand. The private label food brand is available online and in-store via Amazon Fresh. They have lots of yummy food and snacks, like frozen pizza, cornbread crackers, potato chips, and more salty snacks. I haven't tried a bunch of food from their line, but I'm here to let you know that Aplenty Ice Cream is delicious guarantee (as promised).
Amazon Fresh Review
As someone who dreads going to the grocery store (even before the pandemic), I love using Amazon Fresh. Supermarkets are crowded, and shopping with a grocery delivery service makes me stay within budget.
I've used several grocery delivery services, but Amazon Fresh is definitely top two and not number two. They allow a two-hour time slot and deliver straight to my door. I love the fact that there aren't any awkward calls between drivers asking if I can meet them outside.
Drivers arrive on time with your groceries right on your doorstep, no contact is required at all. (I love it.)
My only negative experiences are that sometimes I have to put off ordering groceries for a day or two to allow items I frequently buy to restock (Starbucks coffee creamer and my favorite tortillas seem to never be in stock in my area.) I've also received produce that needed to be thrown out ASAP.
I won't let those ruin my experience with Amazon Fresh, but keep in mind that your favorite pantry staples are also someone else's favorites, and that buying produce can be a hit or miss.
Aplenty Ice Cream Ranking
In 4th place, we have Blackberry Crisp. The ice cream has no artificial flavors, synthetic colors, or high fructose corn syrup. That's already a win!
This flavor is delicious and will probably be your favorite Aplenty product of all time if you love blackberries. Aplenty gives you plenty of oatmeal crumbles and blackberries for sure. They aren't stingy at all, so you'll get a taste of blackberries and oatmeal with every bite.
I'm impressed. I tend to lean toward strawberries, but I'll be buying this flavor from now.
3rd place goes to triple chocolate truffle. Okay, I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of chocolate ice cream (or even chocolate cake, but I was amazed). What I learned is that I'm a huge fan of fudge truffles. Thanks to the fudge truffle bites (which there are a lot of), I fell in love with this flavor.
It's so good. Almost as good as putting ice cream on fresh-baked brownies. Aplenty also added salted fudge swirl and chocolate flakes. I know it might sound like too much chocolate, but it's not. It's so creamy and delicious.
If Aplenty can turn a chocolate ice cream hater into a fan, just about anyone will love this flavor.
Our runner-up is caramel sugar s'mores. Y'all. I'm going to have to take a break writing this review to go and have a few bites of this flavor. Whoever decided to mix toasted marshmallow ice cream with graham cookie bits deserves a raise.
It is very sweet, but if that's your thing, you'll love it. If you don't like super sweet ice cream, then I suggest skipping this flavor.
First place goes to sea salt caramel truffle. I can't checkout my Fresh cart until I have this ready to go. I could tell this flavor would be good, but I didn't expect it to be that good. To be honest, I was just looking for a substitution for Snicker's Ice Cream. (This flavor is so much yummier to me.)
There is a lot, and I mean, A LOT of caramel in this ice cream. If you love caramel and chocolate candy, you're going to love this flavor as much as I do. The salted caramel and salted chocolate truffle pieces melt in your mouth and pair so perfectly with vanilla ice cream.
Seriously, I'll always have this ice cream in my freezer, and I'm not sharing.
