Jack Frost Premium Ice Cream: Falling in Love with its Unique Signature Flavors

June 20, 2013

If you've been reading my posts, you'd know that I have an endless love affair with ice creamFor quite some time now, my dear friend Sumi has been raving about Jack Frost Premium Ice Cream.  So one afternoon, The Foodies Circle, visited the humble abode of its creator Mr. Bonner Dytoc for some taste test.  And, Sumi who has tried most of their flavors, was back for more. =p

Jack Frost Premium Ice Cream with a tag line "If you think you know ice cream, then it's time to get to know Jack", aims to offer ice cream with a better quality than the commercialized brands.

They offer ice cream in three sizes: Pint, Half Gallon and Gallon.  Their flavors and pricing is segregated in two: Premium and Super Premium
jackfrost premium ice cream
Blueberry Cheesecake (Pint 250 php)
Although their pint looks smaller than the conventional ones you buy in the supermarket, you'd find that it contains non-airy ice cream that's compact so the container is completely filled up. 

Up to this date, it currently offers 17 flavors.  With its growing market, it continuously develops more flavors taking into consideration the requests of its customers.

Premium
basil ice cream
Basil (Pint 200 php / Half Gallon 700 php / Gallon 1,300 php)

I'll start with my favorite among all the flavors, Basil!  I'll give this a perfect score for innovation and the right blend.  It's cool with a fresh peppery basil taste that's not too overwhelming.  Its nice sophisticated taste that's not represented by being plainly leafy was quite successful in serenading my taste buds.


silky amber ice cream
Silky Amber (Salted Butter Caramel) (Pint 200 php / Half Gallon 700 php / Gallon 1,300 php)
The Silky Amber is actually Salted Butter Caramel.  There's been a growing popularity for the Salted Caramel flavor in ice cream, gelato and froyo but this one comes with an additional of butter.  I think the butter idea works because it neutralized the sweet rich taste of the caramel.  I bet many would like this.  But, since I have a low tolerance for rich flavors, I'd prefer an even lighter version.


wintermelon delight ice cream
Wintermelon Delight (Pint 200 php / Half Gallon 700 php / Gallon 1,300 php)
Imagine the popular Wintermelon Milk Tea in creamy ice cream form and you have yourself the Wintermelon Delight.  It's no surprise that this is one of their best sellers.  We all gave an unanimous thumbs up for this too.

almond spice ice cream
Almonds Spice (Pint 200 php / Half Gallon 700 php / Gallon 1,300 php)
The Almonds Spice has a light almond base with hint of ginger spice.  It has bits of the sugar coated ginger jelly candy.  

Super Premium
oreo cheesecake ice cream
Oreo Cheesecake (Pint 250 php / Half Gallon 800 php / Gallon 1,500 php)
I really like the thick, rich and cream cheesy consistency of the Oreo Cheesecake.  For an Oreo lover like me, this is simply irresistible especially with tons of oreo crumbs.


strawberry cheesecake ice cream
Strawberry Cheesecake (Pint 250 php / Half Gallon 800 php / Gallon 1,500 php)
I was quite surprised that the Strawberry Cheesecake had a lighter composition compared to the
Oreo Cheesecake.  But, it was also good in its own way.  I think this would have been better though if it had fresh tangy strawberry bits in it.

blueberry cheesecake ice cream
Blueberry Cheesecake (Pint 250 php / Half Gallon 800 php / Gallon 1,500 php)
I took home a pint of Blueberry Cheesecake and they enjoyed it.  Although we had other ice cream, this was quickly emptied.  The sweetness is just right.  But, I notice that this was more graham crumby than the two other cheesecake flavors I've tried.  Perhaps, their mixing process doesn't guarantee that the ingredients are equally distributed.  I loved it still though because I've always enjoyed eating graham crackers and crusts.

morning rush ice cream
Morning Rush (Pint 250 php / Half Gallon 800 php / Gallon 1,500 php)
The Morning Rush is coffee ice cream with bacon bits.  I found this quite intriguing because it comes with bacon.  But upon tasting, an aromatic roasted coffee lingered in my mouth.  I was not able to distinguish the taste of bacon at all even though I was chewing on the bacon bits.  So I think the presence of the bacon is merely for its chewy texture only.

choco glacier ice cream
Choco Glacier (Pint 250 php / Half Gallon 800 php / Gallon 1,500 php)
The Choco Glacier is a rich blend of sweet chocolate ice cream with bits of mint chocolate candy.  Every one loved this because it has a wonderful cooling effect.  Being accustomed to bitter sweet chocolate ice cream, this was a bit sweet for my preference though.

peanut butter jelly ice cream
PBJ (Pint 250 php / Half Gallon 800 php / Gallon 1,500 php)
Probably my least favorite is the PBJ because its taste overwhelmed my taste buds.  This is best enjoyed by eating it the local way with bread or monay


energo milo ice cream
Energo (Pint 250 php / Half Gallon 800 php / Gallon 1,500 php)
The Energo is Milo ice cream with Pop Rocks coated in chocolate.  I enjoyed this because I liked Milo and it was quite thrilling to experience the popping sensation at random.


Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Jack Frost Premium Ice Cream is a promising home-based enterprise that offers unique signature flavors that will surely entice you.  Each flavor has a different consistency depending on the ingredient so its best to try them out and find the one that soothes to your liking.  I look forward to trying more of their variants.
