MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2009

This ice cream has a really refreshing flavor. I will find a different recipe for next time however because the sugar and/or the gelatin did not dissolve and so the ice cream has a granular rather than a creamy taste. Prepared per the receipe and ice cream maker directions. Not sure what happened!
