What are Bubbies Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Bites?
The concept is similar to mochi ice cream, which are small blobs of ice cream wrapped in soft Japanese rice cake. But instead of rice cake, these have a cookie dough exterior. More specifically, these feature chocolate chip ice cream wrapped in chocolate chip cookie dough.
How are they?
I hate to say this because I do LOVE Bubbies mochi ice cream, but these cookie dough ice cream bites don’t make me want to use all caps or the word “love.”
The ice cream inside is fine, although it’s not perfect, which I’ll explain later. My issue with this treat is the chocolate chip cookie dough exterior. It’s a bit bland when compared to other edible cookie dough brands I’ve tried.
There’s a brown sugar flavor that’s common with other edible cookie dough, but it’s too mild. Not even the tiny bits of chocolate in the dough or the vanilla ice cream help elevate it to the point where I’d ignore the serving size and stuff my mouth with all six in the box.
But if you think about it, these cookie dough ice cream bites follow what mochi ice cream is like — a light-flavored exterior that lets the ice cream filling stand out. However, that’s not what I expected with these. I want the cookie dough to stand out, but it doesn’t.
Is there anything else you need to know?
The ice cream has the flavor and creaminess I expect from Bubbies, but with the four I’ve eaten so far there seems to be a lack of chocolate chips within the ice cream. They’re a different texture than what’s in the cookie dough, so it’s easy to feel one. Unfortunately, I felt a chip only two or three times with each piece. That seems like an adequate amount since it takes two or three bites to eat one. But when I cut open one, I’m looking at a short wall of vanilla ice cream.
Chocolate chip ice cream wrapped in edible chocolate chip cookie dough looks like an instant winner on paper or a computer screen as a 3D model, but Bubbies’ Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Bites did not win over my taste buds.
