Review: Kroger Private Selection Ice Cream - Chocolate Cinnamon and Coconut Caramel Flan

I had recently an opportunity through to sample Kroger Private Selection products, among them their Private Selection ice cream. I received a couple of coupons for free or reduced products, but actually liked the Private Selection ice cream so much that I went back for some more.
I initially sampled the Chocolate Cinnamon variety and was quite impressed. Let me be clear - this ice cream is rich. Its fat content is quite high, but it is very smooth and a little in a waffle cone will go a long way.

I really liked that you could taste the cinnamon in the chocolate ice cream. I selected this variety first because I love to make cinnamon coffee, using sticks of cinnamon and boiling them in some milk that is then mixed 50:50 into regularly brewed coffee.

While I do love to add hot fudge sauce or warm raspberries on top of my ice cream, this ice cream is truly rich enough that you only want to eat a scoop and certainly don't want to add hot fudge to it. I simply put a scoop into sugar cones and ate it. Great for after dinner dessert.
Besides this flavor, I also sampled their Coconut Caramel Flan, which I also loved. It has bits of coconut in it as well as caramel swirls. Very rich indeed - but fine for a special treat every now and then.
For your information, another variety of the Kroger Private Selection Ice Cream Sea Salt Caramel Truffle and its nutritional information is listed here.

We also love this product, but when we went back to get another pint, there was no more. Kroger needs to know how much we like this. (07/06/13)
