Video Transcript

- All right, mark your calendars, folks. Sunday is National Ice Cream Day. And ahead of the all important day, frozen pizza company DiGiorno is putting a very fresh spin on dessert. DiGiorno turned its buttery crescent crust into an ice cream cone, and also collaborated with a creamery to create two savory ice cream flavors.

One, Strawberry Tomato Basil. The other, Parmesan Cheese. We do have both flavors here on set, and we'll do a little taste test. I will let you two taste while I kind of talk us through this.

All right, you have got which one?

- Strawberry Tomato Basil.

- Strawberry Tomato. So Rochelle, you're going to go try Parmesan cheese, if you will. So--

- All right. Let me grab the Parmesan Cheese.

- Rochelle, you grab the Parmesan Cheese.

- It's a little hard to do with a plastic spoon, I'm going to be honest.

- Yeah, you probably need more of an ice cream scooper.

- I have both of them over here, so I'm going to give them a try.

- Yeah. And we're going to see what you think. OK, Rochelle, you go first and tell us what you think of the Parmesan Cheese. That's an interesting face.

- It's funny because at first, it almost tastes like a cheesecake, but then that Parmesan kicks in pretty strongly. I don't hate it, though.

- I don't hate it.

- That tasted-- that tastes all right.

- I don't think they're going to put that on the side of the carton, but that's not a terrible review. And what about the Strawberry Tomato Basil?

- This one's pretty good. I don't really taste-- do you have that-- yeah. I don't really taste the tomato. It's more so the strawberry and basil, which I think is very, very good.

- I'm going to try the other one.

- OK, I'm going to go straight for the DiGiorno cone because I love myself a nice ice cream cone. I prefer the sugar variety but. That is solid. That is very, very good. I like a little crisp ideally, but it's not DiGiorno, it's-- no, it's not delivery, it's DiGiorno.

- It's DiGiorno. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

- That's the tagline? Solid. I would say a solid 7 and 1/2 on an ice cream cone scale.

- Yeah. Well, I need to try that, but the Parmesan, Rochelle, I see what you're talking about now.

- I will say, I do like the strawberry-- the Strawberry Tomato Basil one. But I do like the-- I think the strawberry one is a more subtle way to sort of get into it. You do taste the basil, the notes of basil at the very end.

- The cone is good on that one.

- I'm not mad at that one. That's actually quite nice.

- The--

- The cone is very, very good. It needs--

- The cone is good. The Strawberry Tomato Basil is excellent.

- It's very-- I'm telling you.

- I would score that about an 8 and 1/2, quite frankly.

- Oh, yeah. Me too. Maybe even a 9. It's very good. The Parmesan, I'm not quite as sold on, but it's good.

- I am not either.

- Mm-hmm.

- But still, I'll probably finish half the carton. It's ice cream.

- Me too, I was like, it's not going to stop me eating it.

- How bad can it get?

- I mean, we've got to do something to celebrate National Ice Cream Day.

- Oh, there is the Parmesan flavor.

- Yeah, it kicks in late.

- It's a little more than I would like.

- And there's actually a bunch-- there's going to be a bunch of deals because, you know, if you're not able to get your hands on this, there will be a bunch of deals going on for National Ice Cream Day. So I know you can scoop up a couple of things. I know if you're too lazy to actually go to the store, you can order on DoorDash and get $5 off your order.

But you're even seeing like some hardware stores, I believe, also offering free ice cream that have nothing to do with ice cream at all, but I think they just want to join in the fun.

- Doing anything they can to get their shoppers through their doors. Well, this is very good.
