Hardscoop Ice Cream and Sorbet.

We promised our review of the Hardscoop Ice Cream and Sorbet.

We first saw the product advertised on Facebook.

We purchased the Chocolate Ice Cream and the Strawberry Sorbet.

Price each $9.95 per 375mm plastic tub.

Strawberry Sorbet 9.0 % ABV.

First the not so flattering out of the way. We didn’t enjoy the Strawberry Sorbet as much as we hoped that we would. Weirdly enough we’ve since seen others post how much they loved the Strawberry Sorbet. So to each their own, we recommend you try it for yourself.

The Strawberry flavor was in my opinion overly intense and just not balanced. The sorbet wasn’t horrible by any means, let me just say not $10 good.

But OMG the Chocolate Ice Cream!!!

Chocolate Ice Cream 8.1% ABV.

The Chocolate Ice Cream is everything we hoped it would be and more! True silky chocolate flavor with the grain neutral alcohol subtly and pleasantly present on the finish! The alcohol is similar to a top shelf vodka flavor.

The chocolate ice cream is oh so good, simply decadent and so very worth the $10 price point!

Hardscoop Chocolate Ice Cream

We remain interested to try the peach sorbet and other flavors of ice cream.

Flavors available at our local Ingles were the Strawberry Sorbet, sadly no Peach Sorbet was available, the Chocolate Ice Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream, and a Coffee Flavored Ice Cream.

Produced by Hardscoop Distillery based in Charleston, South Carolina.
