Safeway Select Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Posted By I Love Pumpkins on December 26, 2008

A seasonal kind of breakfast.

A seasonal kind of breakfast.

Earthy, deep and not too sweet. This ice cream almost feels healthy, the way a bran muffin feels deceptively healthy. It would be good for breakfast. Let me rephrase that… it WAS good for breakfast. Sugar + pumpkin + milk = the next superfood?

The color is dark and rich like a moody pumpkin. The texture produces an airy mouthful. No aftertaste. Feels light. Not too sugary. Like I said, it tastes almost healthy and it’s definitely pumpkinacious.

Safeway’s Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream isn’t perfect, though. The label tells you to expect “crunchy pie crust pieces” but the pie crust is pale and not nearly crispy enough. That’s in sharp contrast to the impossibly crunchy gingersnap crust you’ll find in Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream. You get the feeling that Safeway’s crust just wasn’t fully baked. And the bright orange “spiced pumpkin swirl” in here is a little disturbing. But overall it’s a very satisfying ice cream.

Merry Christmas and stuff.

Merry Christmas and stuff.

By the way, Safeway loves pumpkins. This year they made Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese, Pumpkin Spice Eggnog, and of course this Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. Safeway also won an award for the best store-bought Pumpkin Pie and is also the flagship sponsor of the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. Be sure to check out all the reviews. I Love Pumpkins loves Safeway!

  1. Hallo It has been many months since has published delicious pumpkin recipes or beautiful pumpkin pictures. Each day I visit the municipal library to come to but there is nothing. Where are you? Are you safe? I am sorry for not commenting. I hope Carlos has not offended with my neglect. There have been many changes at our cottage! When I last spoke to you Juanita’s sister the cursed Bianca had taken residence in our home with her squalling brood. This was a trying and difficult time for Carlos especially during the Lord’s Christmas. At that time slow Chuy was trapped in our cider barrel by his cruel brother Matias. I discovered poor slow Chuy and rushed to find our local cooper to free him but our local cooper was drunken and could not be roused. I took my hatchet and shouted at slow Chuy to shelter away from the top of our cider barrel. I was able to free him safely but slow Chuy cowered from his brother Matias and would not take food for three days. Slow Chuy is now living with Juanita and I as our son. He tends our pumpkin patch well and loves our pumpkins with an innocence and purity that I envy. Since slow Chuy has come to live with us I have stopped my wickedness and no longer engage in physical acts of love with our pumpkins. I must thank you For when I first read your web-blog I was a sinner and now I am upright of life and free of wickedness. Slow Chuy and our lord Jesus have shown me that it is right to love pumpkins as a father loves his children and not as a man loves his wife. I can now say I love pumpkins without shame. I love pumpkins! Jajaja! Please come back and post more delicious pumpkin recipes.
