Archer Farms is Target's "gourmet" brand for everything from crackers to ice cream. I've had their ice cream before and it's all pretty good. Really creamy and flavorful. Today I tried the Pear Cinnamon Caramel. This is one of those flavors that come only in the pint container. They've got one that has Fleur de Sel and one that has Lavender in it, which is good. That one only comes out summer and spring.
Well, let me tell you, the Pear Cinnamon Caramel ... I wanted to smoke a Gauloise when I was done. It's not vanilla ice cream with pear mixed in - it's pear ice cream. This means that it tasted immediately of a ripe, juicy pear and then that wonderful cream flavor. Kind of like eating a pear creamsicle, if such a fantastic thing exists. . . then comes the cinnamon and caramel. It turns the whole experience of eating a pear creamsicle to eating pear pie a la mode (but minus the crust).
Get thee to a Target and partake. You will not be sorry.
