We arrived at Kerber’s at 10:30 a.m. They are another small convenience store with an adjacent putt putt golf course and inner tube water slide. They sell half gallon tubs of their ice cream (Jackson Farms sold half gallon and gallon tubs) as well as selling soft serve ice cream and a huge variety of scooped ice cream flavors. Today they had 41 flavors to choose from!
Gregg selected one scoop of Blackberry Cobbler ice cream. It had a definite blackberry flavor minus the seeds. The cobbler pieces were cake. Since Gregg doesn’t care for cake and because his mental image of “cobbler” is fruit topped with pie crust, he would have preferred crispy pie pieces in the ice cream.
I selected Mocha Toffee Crunch. It had dark chocolate chips in it, which gave it the crunch. The mocha and toffee blended into a nice flavor of its own. I didn’t identify the flavors separately. Gregg could taste the coffee but not the toffee.
Overall impressions included the ice cream melted more quickly than we expected in 73 degree, cloudy weather. It didn’t have as much air as Jackson Farms which gave it a creamier mouth-feel.
Ratings on scale of -5 to 5:
- Creativity: 3 (for variety of unique flavors)
- Flavor: 4
- Texture: 5
- Temperature: 5
- Selection: 5 (41 current flavors)
- Type: We ate their hard packed/scooped (they also offer soft-serve)
- Worth The Drive? 3
Our next creamery is 20 minutes away but doesn’t open until noon. Since it is 11am, we will take a side trip to Costco! It isn’t much out of the way and we don’t get to Pittsburgh often.
Ice cream, Costco, and time together. What a fine day!
