I learned a lot about my feelings on soft serve. I used to always get a vanilla cone. And then I would eat it relatively quickly and not pay much attention to it. But if you really taste vanilla soft serve, it is nothing special. So after the first tour, I thought I liked a vanilla/chocolate twist better. Neither the chocolate or vanilla was great, but together their sum seemed to be larger than the parts. Now after participating in 3 of these soft serve tours, I think I'm leaning towards vanilla or chocolate soft serve isn't worth the time. Other soft serve flavors might be, but vanilla and choclate are just cold on a summer day. There isn't much special about them.
With these tours, I usually do a break down of how we scored everything and look for any comments that might provide insight into how each one of us ranked the ice cream. But it is hot out and I'm going to be lazy because in the end, we all picked the same place as the best. And of the tour participants (I think there were 11 on tour), we were the only 4 to pick this place as our favorite of the day.
What we ended up doing was getting the same order at each place and sharing. The order was 1 kiddie sized chocolate/vanilla twist, 1 kiddie sized chocolate/vanilla twist with rainbow sprinkles, and 1 kiddie sized vanilla. The cost ranged from $6.90 to $7.50. In general, I thought they were all decent values because I end up buying soft serve at Guptil's (it is near some softball fields), and while there is never a line because it is very well staffed, ice cream isn't cheap there. It is not uncommon for me to be sitting there wishing we had all got our own half gallon at Stewart's.
