There are six flavors of Milk Bar available in pints: Birthday Cake, Butter Pie, Cereal Milk, Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Crisp, and Homemade Chocolate Loaf. spice.
Cereal milk: This flavor is Milk Bar’s calling card, reproducing the taste of milk at the bottom of your bowl of Cornflakes. I would call the base of this ice cream vanilla, but the infusion of cornflakes makes it unique. The taste of cereal milk reminds you that carbohydrates are breaking down into sugar molecules, as the flavor increases the natural sweetness of cornmeal with more sugar. The Crispy Swirl Cornflakes aren’t exactly crispy (at least compared to the version of the topping offered in the Milk Bar locations), but they are evenly spread throughout the pint.
Birthday cake: Based on Milk Bar’s dessert of the same name, the birthday cake features pieces of cake, frosting, and sprinkles mixed into a vanilla cake flavored base. Since it’s the MO of Milk Bar, the birthday cake flavor is supposed to taste like a ready made funfetti cake, and it does. What it doesn’t taste like is real vanilla cake. The mixed pieces of frosting were surprising to encounter; At first I thought it was chunks of ice cream that had frozen unevenly.
Milk pie: It’s the only flavor actually described as vanilla, with swirls of milk pie filling (similar to chess pie, made with tons of butter, sugar, and eggs) and a crust of crushed toasted oats in a deep vanilla base. The brown butter flavor really stands out.
Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow: This is the flavor that most resembles other ice creams I’ve had. It’s a recognizable cookie dough ice cream with melted marshmallows, chocolate flavored chunks and a cornflake crunch. The taste notes of brown butter and vanilla give this pint a taste a bit like milk pie. Although I liked the flavor of the cookie dough, I had trouble identifying the melted marshmallow and the cornflake crunch wasn’t evenly distributed.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Cookies: This pint is made of chocolate peanut butter ice cream with peanut butter cookie crumbs and chocolate fudge cookie dough. The peanut butter used in the swirl is crunchy and a bit salty, which diversifies the texture and flavor of the pint. I’m hesitant to call it real chocolate ice cream though. The chocolate fudge swirl adds a rich chocolate taste when you take a bite of it, but the base flavor is a real blend of peanut butter and chocolate.
Gingerbread House: Milk Bar also launched a seasonal flavor, gingerbread ice cream with a gingerbread cookie crunch, candies and icing swirls. The flavor of ginger is present, is overshadowed by the sweetness of the icing swirls. However, I loved the crunch of the gingerbread cookies – it tasted like a holiday.
