Fried Ice Cream ice cream

fried ice cream ice creamFried ice cream is just what it sounds like: deep fried ice cream. It’s pretty easy to find on the menus at mexican chain restaurants, where a crispy¬†coating of cinnamon, sugar and crumbled cornflakes seems to be the standard. If you want to fry your own, it’s a good idea to start with balls of ice cream that are as cold as you can possibly get, so that they hold up in the heat of the fryer. A deep freeze (or other extra-cold freezer) is handy for this. But if you are looking for an easier way to get your fix, you might want to keep and eye out for¬†Breyers Fried Ice Cream.

This Fried Ice Cream ice cream isn’t quite a new release. It actually came out a few months ago -not that that really takes away from the “caramel light ice cream swirled with honey caramel with cinnamon tostada pieces.” I haven’t been able to find it in too many stores in my area for some reason, but more than a few friends have stumbled upon it and tried it out with pretty good results (especially considering that it’s a “light” ice cream and probably saves you a few calories over the “real thing”). I’ll keep my eyes out.


  1. I must get my hands on some of this! Thanks for the heads up. It sounds delicious!

  2. Yum…The only place that carries it in my area is Super Walmart

  3. How interesting! The only place I’ve ever eaten fried ice cream is in Japanese restaurants. I had no idea it was a Mexican-chain-restaurant thing too.

  4. I haven’t tried this, but we tried the cookie jar flavor which is in the same new flavor line as this I belive. We were somewhat dissapointed as there were very little cookies, and what cookies there were, ended up being just little fractions of cookies.

    The taste was good, but we will probably just stick to regular cookie dough, or cookies and cream. I am interested in trying their caramel pretzel one.

  5. This ice cream is so good. It came out over a year ago on the east coast and I think most stores have moved on. But I had many a 1/2 gallon in my freezer for a while!! Definitely get some!
