B&J Cannoli Ice Cream
When I heard about this flavor about a month ago, I've kept an eye out for it; I have a soft spot for a good cannoli (even a bad one). I finally spotted it at the store today, so of course I bought it and tried it when I got in the car (yup). I gotta say, I was a little disappointed. I didn't really get *cannoli* from it as much as I did just french vanilla ice cream with random chunks of chocolate and a slight crunch (from the supposed cannoli shells). And I don't really get the mascarpone addition; cannoli filling is traditionally ricotta (I've never tried a cannoli with a mascarpone filling that I liked). But I am a bit of a tough critic when it comes to cannoli, so I'm wondering if anyone else has tried it and liked it. Am I just being too much of a "stickler"?
