I love chevre, I really do. All kinds: domestic chevre, French chevre, fresh chevre, aged chevre, even goat's milk cheddar. Hell, I like Coach yo-goat yogurt drinks. But try as I might to love Laloo's Goat's Milk Ice Cream, I just can't.
At least not the Deep Chocolate flavor. It's just too, well, goaty. Each spoonful gives you three intense, distinct flavor hits: first the goatiness hits your taste buds like a sledgehammer, then the chocolate kicks in, and just when you think the chocolate is going to carry Laloo to flavor victory, the goatiness comes back with a vengeance. Maybe the vanilla or the molasses flavors will be better. I will give them a try, but I can't say I'm optimistic.
Note: It's not as if I haven't tried and loved ice cream made with something other than cow's milk. Some of the best ice cream I've ever eaten was the water buffalo's milk ice cream I ate in Campagna last May.
