I firmly believe anyone who claims they don’t like ice cream is a damn liar. That may sound harsh, but it’s the truth. Even if you’re lactose intolerant, there’s always a reason to eat ice cream. It’s worth the gas, bloating and diarrhea, if you ask me, so unless you have a deathly allergy, don’t kid yourself.
I enjoy ice cream as much as anyone else, but I am a wee bit picky with my flavours. Cookie dough is one of my favourites, along with cookies and cream, and birthday cake is also a front-runner, however, it can be tricky to find. So, when I stumbled across Tim Horton’s Birthday Cake Timbits ice cream, you can bet your bottom dollar I picked it up for myself to sample.
I would not consider this ice cream to be overly affordable, as I believe I paid just shy of eight pucks for a small pint of it. Just a heads up to anyone interested in purchasing it for themselves.
This ice cream is good, don’t get me wrong, but I would not go so far as to say it’s great. Based on the name of the product, it gives the impression that the consumer should come across literal pieces of Timbits throughout the ice cream.
I can confirm that the ratio of ice cream to Timbit is absolute shit. You might get a chunk every fourth mouthful or so, though even when you do, it’s such a small morsel you can’t even taste it.
Aside from the lacking presence of Timbits, the birthday cake flavour of the ice cream is quite pronounced, which I can appreciate. It’s is pretty sweet, but I feel like that is to be expected given the flavour of the ice cream in question.
Overall, this ice cream is good, but for the price, I wouldn’t necessarily buy it again.
