Are you looking for that coffee taste but also want a dessert? Then why not just have coffee ice cream to fill both of those desires.
Coffee ice cream is the bees knees! I personally think vanilla is the best ice cream but if I can pair it with anything coffee flavored, well that just hits my taste buds in a way that I can’t comprehend. In fact I’ve actually called Trader Joe;s ahead of time to make sure they have their Coffee Bean Blast in stock before I went shopping.
I do find having some brownies to go along with my dessert to be the most satisfying. I’m a foodie, what can I say.
In this article I am going to share with your 5 of my favorite store finds when it comes to Coffee Flavored Iced Cream you can have a home.
5 Best Store Bought Coffee Ice Creams
- Ben and Jerry’s “Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz” Ice Cream
- Enlightened “Coffee and Cream” Ice Cream
- Häagen-Dazs “Coffee” Ice Cream
- Talenti “Cold Brew Coffee Sorbetto”
- Rebel Ice Cream, Coffee Chip
Enlightened “Coffee and Cream” Ice Cream
Now this one is a hard to find. The fact that it is KETO friendly has made this fly off the shelf. It’s low in carbs and sugar and has such a smooth and creamy coffee that it’s definitely one you should try.
Last I checked it was currently unavailable on Amazon but you can add yourself to their list to know when it will be back in stock.
Ben and Jerry’s “Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz” Ice Cream
This one packs a wallop! Such a great flavor and you’ll even find small chunks of espresso bean fudge. They don’t call this Buzz Buzz Buzz for nothing!
Somewhere between the creamy coffee coffee ice cream & the buzzbuzzbuzz of espresso fudge, it hits you: you’re wide awake & in lovelovelove.
Grab pint it locally or get yours from Amazon.
Häagen-Dazs “Coffee” Ice Cream
I’m going to let Suzie’s review do all the explaining for me: This is a tongue pleasing blend of creaminess and rich coffeeness. Not bitter at all. I love the light clean feel. It does not leave the mouth feeling “coated”. When this ice cream melts, if it should ever get the chance to melt, it does not turn into a slurry of pithy foam. This, to me, is evidence of pure natural ice cream.
I am not sure if I can top that but I’ve thrown this in my shopping cart a few times and it is one I can call a favorite and worth a taste.
Grab pint it locally or get yours from Amazon.
Talenti “Cold Chocolate Chip”
To be honest, I haven’t tried this one but before I wrote this article I asked a few of my friends if they ever tried Coffee Ice Cream and I feel like I offended at least one of them.
They all answered with a yes and two mentioned how much they love Talenti and while I didn’t get an in-depth taste review they said just get it and thank me later. I know it’s a gelato but I put this on the coffee ice cream dessert list and that’s why it made it here in this post.
So this is something I will have to add on my shopping list.
I found this on Amazon and it wasn’t as expensive as I thought.
Rebel Ice Cream | Coffee Chip
Last but not least. I never even heard of Rebel but somehow I ended up in the freezer section at Walmart and saw a pint all by it’s lonesome that said COFFEE CHIP. Simple and clean branding and the giant 6g for net carbs on the label and the “No sugar | High Fat | Low Carb” lid stood out.
I am guessing this is another one of those Keto friendly ice cream and that could be why it was low in stock.
Next time you are at Walmart, see if they has this one and pick it up and let me know what you think in the comments below.
I’d like to know how you feel about low carb and no sugar ice cream.
How much caffeine does coffee ice cream have?
Each is different based on the recipe. Some of the brands will have a FAQ page that gives you more details but for the most part you would have to consume a good amount of cream to have the same caffeine as an 8 oz cup of java.
However, if you are sensitive to caffeine, coffee ice cream can keep you awake
For reference: an 8-ounce cup of coffee has 95 mg of caffeine according to the USDA.
So let’s take a look at the first one on our list and that’s Ben and Jerry’s Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz. This Coffee Ice Cream has 45 mg caffeine per ½ cup serving, and 180 mg per pint. So if you down the whole thing in one go, you’ll have the equivalent of a little more than two cups of java.
Now let’s use look at Häagen-Dazs’ coffee ice cream: In a ½ cup serving there is approximately 21.6 mg of caffeine. That’s a little more than ¼ cup of brewed coffee. A full 14 oz carton is 75.6 mg. The Espresso Chocolate Cookie Crumble doesn’t have much more caffeine—23 mg per serving and 80.5 mg per carton.
Last Example: Talenti “Cold Brew Coffee Sorbetto” – they have a link to their FAQ page that says the following:
This was a fun article to write since I got to give these ice creams a try however, I am going to stick to my plain vanilla. I like cold brew and hot black coffee as beverage more than a flavor in my ice cream.
That’s just my personal taste and for me I like to eat a lot of ice cream, I mean like one pint in a sitting but if it’s coffee flavored I tend to only want a half a cup or so.
