The pros: Trader Joe's Mango and Cream Ice Cream has phenomenal mango flavor which made me wish the dropped the plain part of this ice cream.
The cons: Cream Ice Cream is literally that. For me, that part of the ice cream was missing some vanilla flavor.
The verdict: I like it when the picture on a product matches the product that you actually bring home. In this case, the picture is a bit misleading. The Trader Joe's website makes it clear that this should be ⅔ mango ice cream and one-third sweet cream. The container I got was mostly mango ice cream and that is a good thing. This was featured in the June 2017 Fearless Flyer so I figured I would pick it up before it possibly disappears.
For $4.99 for a quart you are getting some of the best mango ice cream I've ever had. The mango is so very natural tasting. This isn't a sorbet either. It's definitely mango ice cream. My only gripe about this product is the sweet cream ice cream. It just doesn't add much here. I was wishing for a rich vanilla to compliment the delicious mango ice cream.
Overall, I liked this a lot. If they only sold the mango ice cream by itself. I just don't feel like the sweet cream ice cream really added anything here. This item is worth trying. I'm not sure I would buy this again before it possibly disappears. As a potentially seasonal item it was good.

Would I buy this again? I would love to just buy the frozen mango by itself. It was good, but I'm not sure my waistline can handle this being on my shopping list all the time.
