While attending a local Alcoholics Anonymous group’s anniversary meeting recently, I had the opportunity to eat a piece of Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake. I was very impressed by the flavor and texture of this cake and could have eaten more of it, but the entire cake was eaten in just a few minutes.
For several decades, I have been a satisfied customer of Friendly’s ice cream restaurants in the West Hartford, Connecticut area. I am pleased to say that the ice cream in the Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake is just as good as the top – rate ice cream served at Friendly’s restaurants. Presented here, is one food writer’s product review of Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake.
The net weight of the Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake that was served at a meeting that I recently attended, was 60 ounces. That’s 3.75 pounds, this is a good – sized cake. According to the product label, the cake contains fifteen 73 gram servings. At the meeting I attended, the cake was cut into 12 pieces. The pieces were not too big and not too small.
The regular retail price charged for one 60 ounce Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake at Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets is approximately $18.99. Considering the great flavor, texture and overall high quality of the item, as well as the convenience of being able to pick it up at supermarkets, I think that the price of this cake is quite reasonable.
The various textures offered in Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake add greatly to the product’s overall high quality. The vanilla and chocolate ice creams are fairly firm, yet soft enough to consume easily. The chocolate crumbs add a nice sense of contrast and the whipped topping complements the other ingredients very well.

Taste / Flavor
When a Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake was served at one of my regular AA meetings a couple of weeks ago, the cake disappeared quickly. Twelve people shared the cake and I heard nothing but murmurs of approval from the assemblage. Personally, I enjoyed eating the cake so much, I could have eaten at least one more piece of it, but alas, it was devoured quickly.
The vanilla and chocolate ice creams in this cake are top – quality versions of these two flavors. The chocolate crumbs feature a pleasing, cocoa flavor and the whipped topping tastes like real whipped topping, not a mass of whipped oils and chemicals. Combined, these flavors create a very satisfying product that is very flavorful.
Friendly’s vanilla and chocolate Ice Cream Cake is packaged in a cardboard box that is easy to open and it also re – closes effectively. The cake sits on a base – plate that makes cutting the cake into pieces an easy proposition. The container also lists all pertinent ingredient and nutritional information.
On more than one occasion, I have eaten Friendly’s Ice Cream Cakes, but when I ate a piece of one of the cakes recently, I actually noticed just how good these cakes really are. The convenience of buying this cake at the supermarket, combined with its wonderful flavor, pleasing texture and reasonable price, make this ice cream cake a highly recommended item.
