QUICK REVIEW: Perry’s Ice Cream Elf Trash

Perry's Ice Cream Elf Trash

What is Perry’s Ice Cream Elf Trash?

According to the North Pole’s head elf, Sugarplum Perry, he and his elf brethren “accidentally” raided Santa’s cupboard to create the “yummiest holiday stash.”

How “stash” became “trash” remains a mystery, but you know what they say, “One man’s trash is another elf’s pleasure.*”

How is it?

Elf Trash made my yuletide gay. I don’t exactly know what that means, and I don’t know if that’s still PC, but I’m pretty sure it’s a good thing.

Speaking of good things, using a flavor base of white chocolate instead of vanilla was an excellent decision. I’d never had Perry’s brand ice cream prior to this, but they seem to have the perfect level of creaminess nailed down.

The ice cream stood on its own, but the “Elf Trash” Christmas fix-ins brought it to another level. Not only do we get fudge covered pretzels, peanuts, and candies, but crispy pralines too. Each spoonful is loaded with additional bites of varying textures that really make this a happy “accident.”

Is there anything else you need to know?

While the green and red fudge ornaments give the ice cream its festive look, they’re a tad hard and chalky in the ice cream, and I honestly don’t think the overall product would have suffered without them. This is a nitpick though as they’re still fun and tasty enough. They’re essentially Sixlets without the candy shells.

Other than that, I have no complaints. The sugar crystal coated pralines were perfect, and the hint of salt from the pretzels and Goober-esque peanuts wrapped this all in a delicious bow.

Conclusion:

Don’t let “Trash” fool ya, because you’re not gonna find many better ice creams in the freezer right now. I’d absolutely recommend picking up a pint this Christmas.

*People say this, don’t fact check it. Feel free to fact check Sugarplum Perry’s “head elf” claim.

  1. “Elf Trash made my yuletide gay. I don’t exactly know what that means, and I don’t know if that’s still PC, but I’m pretty sure it’s a good thing.” Back in the olden days, when that song was written, gay meant happy. Not sure when it transitioned to it’s current meaning. The 60’s perhaps?

    1. Little bit more complicated history than that- it never quite just meant happy, which explains how, beginning in around the late 17th century, it began to morph into having the definition we know today (firmly taking on the meaning of a homosexual person in the 1960s, yes).

      I feel like the author of this review really wants to go off on a rant but I can’t tell if it’s about these darn young-in’s and their “PC culture” or these old fogies and their totally lame old people stuff like “gay yuletides.” Lol.

  2. This ice cream looks great! I think it’s called Elf Trash because it’s based on “White Trash”, aka “Christmas Crunch.” It’s a snack mix made by coating cereal, pretzels, m&m’s & peanuts in white chocolate – hence the flavor profile. But of course they couldn’t call it White Trash – talk about not PC! 😉

    1. Sure they could, just the fact there is no pushback from the media proves it. Whitey is not afforded the same protections from our very young & naive media.

      Does anyone really believe if the Elf was brown & the ice cream was called “Elf hood” or “Elf ghetto” that the media wouldn’t be losing their collective conformist minds right now?

  3. This looks amazing! Is Perry’s regional? I’ve never seen it in Philadelphia, but I was in Charlotte last weekend and I’m pretty sure Publix had it (*calls moving company*)
