I Tried ALL Of The Good Humor Ice Cream—These 5 Bars Are The Best

·2 min read

If I'm going to do an ice cream taste test, I’m doing it with the company that invented the first ice cream on a stick and the ice-cream truck: Good Humor. There are few moments of nostalgia that we all collectively share, but chasing after the neighborhood ice cream driver in the sweltering heat, sweaty quarters in hand, is likely one of them. To relive that feeling, I did the tough task of eating through a dozen bars—no, my job is not up for grabs and yes, I will gladly give you my leftovers. As a lactose intolerant (this is now a noun for me), I’m picky when it comes to dairy. These five ice creams are totally worth it.

This may be controversial, but I’m gonna say it: I prefer this more than the candy. The peanut butter ice cream has the texture of frozen mousse and the chocolatey cake delivers some crunch.

2. Creamsicle

It wouldn’t be a “Julia Tries Everything” story if I didn’t recommend putting something in alcohol: This vanilla-orange treat is happy hour gold when dunked in a glass of bubbly or enjoyed alongside a shot of vanilla whipped vodka.

3. Strawberry Shortcake

More than 100 years old, this layered vanilla cake-coated bar is a true icon. The sweet strawberry core is less creamy ice cream, more fruity ice pop.

4. Oreo

Hands down my favorite bar of the bunch. It’s Oreo overload: The ice cream is loaded with big hunks, then coated in crushed cookies. Ore-OMG.

5. Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tart

TBH, after tasting more than 30 Pop-Tarts this summer (yup), I wasn’t jumping to try this one. So I was shocked when I kinda loved it; the brown sugar flavor will give you major fall vibes.
