Okay Blue Bell, you gotta give it up.  Tell me just how in the bloody-blue-hell can you keep coming up with these flavors that knock my socks off?

I am in LOVE with this new ‘Bell….Old Fashioned Malt Shoppe.  It is absolutely simple.  Simple and perfect.

It is chocolate-malt ice cream with chocolate-covered-milk-balls (think whoppers but smaller) in it.

What makes this so amazing is that the ice-cream duplicates the actual flavor of the soda-fountain type malted – to the letter.

Whenever you get a chocolate malt at a fountain, unless you specify, you usually get one ladle of chocolate syrup.   So your malt tastes like chocolate and has that tan-tint to it…but it’s not overly chocolate.

Dairy Queen makes one of the best and most consistent chocolate malts I have ever had…and this ice cream tastes so much like it, I might not ever need to go to DQ again.

It’s incredible straight out the container – but I can imagine this with a little milk and a VitaMix making a soda-fountain-style treat in my own home anytime the notion strikes me.    I would have made one for this review but I ate the entire pint while catching up on my cartoons earlier.

Dear Jesus, please do not let this be one of those temporary flavors that disappears forever like the Groom’s Cake they did years past.

Blue Bell ice cream has a devilish way of coming up with new flavors just about the time when you think they have run out of possibilities.

HAPPY TRACKS is vanilla ice cream with a thick and hearty swirl of dark chocolate – and- mini peanut butter cups thrown in.  Just to get your attention.

Popping the top off this …I had this thought.  A lull.   Why didn’t I buy some kind of brownie or chocolate cake to go underneath this in my bowl?

Aside from that small detail, this ice cream is fantastic.   My container was heavy on the chocolate swirl – so I am not certain if I lucked-out or it’s that heavy in every container.  Either way, the amount of chocolate swirl to be had, was welcome.  We ain’t talking a little drizzle of swirled chocolate.   This was loaded with the stuff.

With most things, it’s probably a limited release, so make tracks to get Happy Tracks and yum it down.  It’s sooo good.
