Frozen Friday - Nestle Limited Edition CinnaMunch Ice Cream Bars

Limited-edition Nestle CinnaMunch Bars feature "cinnamon flavored bars with cinnamon graham cracker pieces in a chocolatey coating."

A 15-ounce box of six bars retails for around $4.79, which ends up being around $2.99 on sale.

Technically, these aren't ice cream bars but rather frozen dessert bars with a lower percentage of milk fat than required to be labeled "ice cream." As such, they're not as rich or creamy and were actually a bit icy inside.

The vanilla frozen dairy dessert exhibits a very light, sweet vanilla flavor accompanied by a pleasant and enjoyable cinnamon flavor. The cinnamon graham cracker pieces don't add so much flavor as they do a nice crunch. There were very little cues that the embedded pieces were graham crackers that I could have easily guessed they were rice crisps.

The chocolaty coating is pretty thin and breaks easily. There's enough cocoa to give it a chocolaty flavor, but like the frozen dessert filling, it's neither really creamy nor rich.

Overall, if you're looking for more of a decadent ice cream bar, you're not going to find it here. Nestle CinnaMunch Bars are fairly basic quality-wise, but the cinnamon flavor hits a nice note and the graham crackers provide a good bit of crunchiness to munch on.

  1. Cinnamon and chocolate just sounds like such an odd combination to me. I'm intrigued to give a box a try.
