Costco Vanilla Soft Ice Cream

Please refer to my earlier post below for my review on Dole Soft Ice Cream.

Costco offers soft ice cream in a cup or a waffle cone. If you get it in a cup, you can add some toppings and you'll have yourself a sundae. Choices of toppings are hot fudge, caramel or Strawberry. Ice cream flavors include vanilla, chocolate and a swirl of chocolate and vanilla.

I normally go with a vanilla ice cream in a cup (no topping). This has to be one of my favorite soft ice cream. I would take this over the Dole version in terms taste and value. The Dole version at the PNE is priced at $5.00, while the Costco version is priced at $2.00.

If you haven't tried it yet, I recommend giving the Costco soft ice cream a shot.

How does it compare to DQ, as I've always been a sucker for Dairy Queen soft serve?

Hi raidar, very good question. To be honest, I prefer the Costco one over the DQ one. I can't really give you a technical explanation or a comparison, but I do have a preference for the Costco one. Let me know what you think of it if you do try it.

Actually I was thinking on asking the same thing... So, instead, let me ask you this: how "thick" is the soft serve? For comparison purposes, Wendy's Frosty would be almost runny, while DQ's will be on the thick side. MickeyD's would be somewhere in the middle.

Hi kimho, I would consider the Costco one pretty thick relative to the MickyD's and Dairy Queen. I can't comment on the Wendy's one as I have not tried it yet but I have tried the MickyD's and Dairy Queen ones. I do prefer the Costco one over both. I hope that helps.

I will definitely try it. It may just be time for an all out soft serve throw down comparison.

Hi raidar, let me know how it goes when you try it out. I used to get it with caramel all the time...now I just stick to plain vanilla.
