Pinkerton: Ice Cream and Bacon

Everything tastes better with bacon... ??


Pinkerton seemed to elude me. The first time I thought I had the chance to try out this brand was when I saw that it was being offered at Hai Chix and Steaks. Unfortunately, they were, at that time, out of stock. When I had recently dined at East in Rustan's Makati, I failed to try out Pinkerton as well, and with good reason. I've been hankering for Bono for weeks, and I wasn't about to let anything get in the way.

Finally, the ice cream gods must have took pity on me, for while queueing at Rustan's Supermarket in Rockwell, I saw Pinkerton's small chest freezer by one of the checkout counters. I giddily scanned the available flavors, on the lookout for the Dulce de Leche Sea Salt. It looked as if the gods were teasing me, as there was none to be found. After a short internal debate, I settled on the Candied Maple Bacon, thinking that I could still get that sweet-salty fix.

Oh, it was sweet and salty alright, but not the good, balanced kind. The first bite hit me with too much bacon bits, and as I slowly swirled the frozen dessert around my palate, the base tasted like butter -- cold butter. I wanted it to satiate my hunger for some soothing coldness, and I got none of that. Instead of revivifying, like what I expected an ice cream would and should, it just made me ache for some ice-cold water, and fast.

Apparently, not everything tastes better with bacon. And with the heat threatening to keep my body temperature high and my temper short, this wasn't helping to cool me down one bit. I'm still not giving up on Pinkerton, though. I believe they have a flavor or two that I would love. Maybe I'll get the Mango Basil Sorbet next time, or I hope they would have the Dulce de Leche Sea Salt. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Maybe bacon isn't really for ice cream then? Let me know me what flavor you try and if it's any good. :)

Guia Obsum said...

I wouldn't say it was horrible, but it just didn't feel like I was eating ice cream and enjoying it as I would one. Maybe the other flavors are way better. :)

I've had a coffee ice cream with candied bacon from Jackfrost and that tasted good to me. Yun lang the bacon bits weren't the star in the ice cream, they were just there for the texture. I haven't tried Pinkerton yet, but I think I'll get a Candied Maple Bacon one just to know if maybe it coincides with my palate or not. Anyway, Mango Basil Sorbet and Dulce de Leche Sea Salt sound yummy! :D

Guia Obsum said...

Aha! There is hope for bacon in ice cream. Hope I could try that Jackfrost soon just so I know if this is an isolated case. :)

*ahem*... hehe.. Haven't tried this yet but Merry Moo's very was quite good.. although admittedly the flavor of the bacon was quite tempered.. Still, I've got my sights set on this one.. thanks for the heads up =D

Can't imagine bacon bits in my ice cream but I think this is a must try. Thanks for sharing.

Guia Obsum said...

And there's another ray of hope for bacon in ice cream! Maybe they should have lessened the bacon bits as with Merry Moo's and Jackfrost's so that it won't be so in your face. On second thought, maybe avid bacon lovers such as yourself will totally adore this one. :)

If you come across another flavor of Pinkerton that's good, please let me know. :)

I see banana nutella! OoO i would try one if it wasn't so expensive. Until then, i'll stick to the cheaper (but good) ones. :)

You might want to try the candied maple bacon ice cream served on top of warm waffles or pancakes for a change... it really was made for bacon lovers. Pinkerton does not like skimping on their ingredients, hence a lot of bacon... shared this flavor with friends and family and they all loved it! especially over waffles! yummy!
