Mountain House Freeze Dried Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Taste

This tastes very good and is very different from the Mountain House Freeze Dried Ice Cream Sandwich I had in the past. If you missed that review, you can find it here:

          Review of Mountain House Freeze Dried Ice Cream Sandwich

This Freeze Dried Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream has a rich, creamy taste, and is slightly crunchy. Whereas the Ice Cream Sandwich I had in the past was crunchy and the ice cream had a fine malted-milk-like texture, this mint chocolate chip ice cream is much closer to the original frozen ice cream treat. Still a little crunchy, but in my opinion, much closer to the original.

When eating it, I can’t really distinguish the chocolate chips from the ice cream. I think that both of these ingredients just combine together to create the final taste.

For fun, I rehydrated a portion of the ice cream and then ate it. I added some water on a piece and let it soak in. Upon tasting it, it is even closer to the original frozen ice cream than the bites I took of the dry freeze dried ice cream right out of the wrapper.

Leftovers

This was a one serving pouch, so none was leftover.

Bottom Line

This ice cream slice was delicious. I can see how astronauts would really enjoy this in Space. Also, if you buy a bunch of this and put it into your food storage, you won’t be disappointed. It will be a welcome treat when times get rough.

Again, I understand why parents love to buy cases of this stuff for their kid’s birthday parties.

Remember, it’s okay to be a Space Cadet when you eat freeze dried ice cream.
