Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Mint Ice Cream Theme Week.

I didn't specify what kind of milk or cream. So how about some Rumplemint ice cream, with chocolate chips, made with goat's milk?

Laloo's Goat's Milk Ice Cream Company is based in Petaluma, CA, in Sonoma County.

Today, Sonoma County is known more for grapevines than goats. But, if you drive around Petaluma in the winter or spring you'll see lots of green pastureland for cows, chickens, and goats too. (The rest of the year the grass is more golden brown.)

If I hadn't known this was made from goat's milk, I might not have guessed. It had a very, very slight taste difference, but nothing objectionable. This ice cream tasted rich and creamy like traditional ice cream, but was lower in fat (and calories).

The bits of dark chocolate in the ice cream were somewhat frozen and hard to taste (as was the case with most chocolate chips in frozen desserts, and most ice creams sampled this week); but, what I could taste seemed fine.
