Exploring Beyond Private Selection Ice Cream Flavors

At the time I write this, the Holidays are fast approaching. There are so many things that are going on. Family is here, gifts must be found and meals will need to be prepared! Time is not always on your side and some pre-prepared food products sure could make things a lot easier.

To the disappointment of those who got joined to try them for this review, we would not be testing any of our favorite Private Selection Ice Cream Flavors this round. Using our Private Selection Coupons provided by BzzAgent, it was time to try out some of these artisan inspired foods.  For the appetizer, we have selected the Southwestern Style Chicken Trumpets. Our pizza of choice was the Pepperoni & Roasted Garlic marble hearth baked pizza. For desert, thaw and serve Mini Eclairs.

The pizza had us fooled from the start. After getting it on to a cook tray and examining it, we noticed small “gumball” sized white ball sporadically spread out on the top of the pizza. Not over thinking it too much, I just assumed that they were the roasted garlic pieces. Once completed and removed from the oven we realized they were actually pearlini mozzarella cheese balls. This was a delightful little twist in the mix. Those inspired Artisans were at it again..

This was the first, and definitely not the last that I will be trying the Private Selection brand of frozen pizzas. I was extremely hungry at the time, but it is now one of my all time favorite frozen pizzas. Especially when you factor in the price of only $4.99. The quality ingredient claim really seemed to show in the flavors. The Basil seasoning added a great touch combined with the Pearlini Mozzarella, Fire Roasted Garlic, Stravecchio Parmesan, tomato sauce and a nice thin crust. It truly was a crowd pleaser. Everyone down to the picky two year old.

When we were selecting the Southwestern Style Chicken Trumpets, the word trumpets for some reason did not stick out at me. The picture on the box creates a visually delicious optical illusion. These trumpets were exactly that or more precisely, cones. It is an odd and novel concept. However, not one that I can say I really like that much.

The picture I feel exaggerated the cheesyness of them a bit but they were still pretty good. Armed with cheese on the mind, we grabbed some queso dip and it really transformed these into something divine. A word of caution however is that trumpets are a little spicy. So they may not be for everyone and they were not in our trial run. Paired with some spicy queso, it is something I might try again if the price was right. The $6.99 price tag on it will not win the purchase next time around unless they added a few more of them.  So I will wait for a sale or coupons.

From my past experiences I knew that the Private Selection Brand Ice Cream had great options. However, up until this point I have never tried any of their other deserts. After a bit of debate, the eclairs one out and they could not have been easier to prepare. You just set your house on normal and let it sit out for 30 minutes.

First of all, make sure you really let them thaw out properly. In our culinary confusion we must have not quite gave them enough time. The first few I ate were thawed but the custard center still a was very cold. This really effects the taste. In fact we were going to give it a thumbs down and left a few on the plate. After waiting out another ten minutes or so things were quite different. The improvement was really quite astounding. At $4.49 for 20 Eclairs these will definitely be in the shopping cart again. Make no mistake, patience is a virtue.

After the meal was finished , and I had time to reflect on the evening, it is clear that this is a brand worth exploring even further into. In fact on our shopping list right next to my favorite Private Selection Ice Cream flavor is one more Pepparoni and Garlic pizza.

    Hi I bought your pretzel and Carmel and chocolate ice cream and it’s really good but the problem with it is that there was no pretzels in it what so ever it was just Carmel ice cream with chocolate pieces in it. The main reason I got it was for the pretzels. I’m 50 percent satisfied but 50 present unsatisfied. I would have been 100 percent happy and I would have been a returning customer but I’m not willing to spend 5 to 7 bucks for false advertisement.

    The absolute best Ice cream ever. I actually stopped going to the local ice cream vendors because of this brand. I have tried 5 different flavors so far and look forward to trying 95% more of them on this list. The taste is the creamiest and sweetest I have ever had and the fact they pack it with chunks and pieces of extra stuff is what really set me over the edge. I’ll never switch brands. Good Job Private Seletions!

    I LOVE, LOVE and did I say LOVE the Private Selections Sea Salt Caramel Truffle Ice Cream. The only problem is that I can only find it at Foods Co. supermarket and not often at that! I live in Fresno, CA and travel to Los Angeles for doctor’s appointments, which I have to often spend the night and got lucky and found it at Ralph’s Supermarket. Unfortunately, we do not have a Ralph’s in Fresno, CA. Anyways, how can I get this ice cream to be sold on a regular basis locally?

      I would give customer service a call at 800-632-6900. You could also try writing a letter or speaking with management of the local store if they will allow it. Perhaps if they see an interest in it they will consider placing an order. You just have to make them see things your way!

  4. Karen says:

    I’m looking for “German Chocolate Cake” ice cream in the metro Detroit area. Can you tell me where I can find it? I have been unable to locate this particular flavor recently.

  5. Jessica says:

    The Kroger in Bay City STOPPED carrying Brownie Moose Tracks, That’s the only flavor we eat in our house, VERY DISAPPOINTED! Where else can I buy this flavor? We’ve looked everywhere within a 20 mile radius and can’t find it anywhere, I’d be willing to order a quantity of it online if that option was here…. Should be :)

  6. CJ says:

    Are any of the flavors gluten free?

  7. Tia says:

    My husband and I fell in love with New York Cherry Cheesecake! When we went back a few weeks later to purchase it again there wasn’t any on the shelves. Every time we shop at our neighborhood Kroger in Metro Detroit we look for it and it’s never there. Where can we find it in our area?

  8. carolyn grifford says:

    WHERE THE HECK DID THE GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE ICE CREAM GO?!

  9. bo says:

    im eating the carrot cake omgggggggggggg i cant believe kroger makes this

  10. Gina says:

    I want to know when you will be coming out with New York Style Pumpkin Cheesecake? I keep looking for this flavor in the stores but it still has not come out. How soon can I expect this flavor as it is my favorite at this time of year. Thanks…

  11. magnolia mom says:

    Sea salt caramel is AMAZING!!! Thank you for making the best flavors. And decent prices at my local Kroger store.

  12. Sue Cole says:

    I bought some Private Selection Triple peanut Butter Ice Cream at our local Fred Meyers. The flavor was pretty good, but the package was entirely too difficult to open. I had to end up suing a knife and a pair of pliers to finally get it open!! Ice cream does not need to be tamper proof!

    Otherwise, put better instructions on it for opening. My hands are not that strong, so pulling the black piece required a pair of pliers for me and too much frustration.

  13. Holly says:

    This is the best ice cream I have ever had that is from a grocery store. Any other brand doesn’t stand up to the flavors and creaminess of the Private Selection ice cream. I buy it in Southern California at the Ralph’s chain. I’m disabled, and a lot of the time I use a different store that delivers groceries, and can’t get to Ralph’s for this ice cream. If I buy “Bryers” or “Dryers” and am always disappointed. Their ice cream tastes “fake”. The next best would be Ben and Jerry’s. One of my favorite flavors which I don’t see in the list is Southern Red Velvet Cake. And discontinued that I hope they bring back is Extreme Brownie Moose Tracks. It was vanilla ice cream with a chocolate ribbon running through it and chunks of brownies. Because it’s hard for me to get to Ralph’s, I will often buy 4 containers of ice cream to stock up. They must think I am a gluten at the check out stand! LOL.

  14. Ms. Lin says:

    For the first time I tried the Denali Bear Claw flavor and I was blown away!!! I am a chocolate ice cream lover but this just made me commit one of the 7 deadly sins; glutiny…lol. Honestly it was amazing. Perfectly even with all the ingrediants and every spoonful had something in it. My only suggestion is…..make the comtainer larger :)

    Keep up the good work !!!

  15. ZZZ40 says:

    I just tried this ice cream for the first time yesterday, I got cookies and cream. It is the absolute best ice cream I’ve ever bought from a grocery store. I’m really glad I tried it. I already ate the whole tub! So delishis and soft. Can’t wait to try more flavors.

  16. Joelle A. Watts says:

    I bought a different flavor and had the same problem. Part of the black band was broken off and I finally cut the top off of the carton and put the ice cream in a different container.
