Was in there yesterday getting some frozen yogurt and noticed this flavor...Hmm...

    Noodle kugel ice cream?! I love noodle kugel, and I love ice cream, but....

      I tasted both of those flavors: The kugel flavor was quite delicious, as described by the other posters. It tasted like comfort food in the nicest way: gentle, sweet, nicely spiced and smoothly custardy. Smooth, that is, except for the textural obstacle of the noodles. I tried and tried, but I just couldn't quite make my peace with noodles in ice cream.

      The Manischewitz sorbet is a charming concept and a very pretty purplish color, but the flavor, I thought, was just OK; nothing to write home about.

        That's appropriate, IMO, as Manischewitz itself is nothing to write home about!

        Just had some- I agree, it was fabulous! Chewy and spiced and oh so very creamy/custardy.

          Bought a quart for the pre-fast dinner tonight. Great stuff. Creamy, custardy, cinnamony, with noodles to boot! Everyone enjoyed it, even those squeamish about trying new things.

            They've also got a Manischewitz blackberry wine sorbet. See recent Boston Phoenix column: http://www.thephoenix.com/article_ekt....

              Who knew? JP Licks has added a Jewish flavor for the High Holidays. Very cool.
