What’s the Tastiest Flavor of Tillamook Ice Cream?

In today’s brain freeze-inducing Gut Check episode of Good Mythical Morning, Rhett & Link tried a total of 34 Tillamook ice cream products—including some frozen custards—to find the best of them all. Rhett & Link ranked their top three flavors (plus an honorable mention) on a scale of 1-100, using both Link’s special Ice Rank-ing Chart and Rhett’s secondary crumpled-up chart. Armed with a palate cleanser (aka hot lemon water), our boys ranked the best Tillamook ice creams and named just one “Attila the Yum.”

Honorable Mention: Tillamook Sea Salt & Honeycomb Toffee Frozen Custard

This was the only custard flavor of the bunch, and Rhett & Link were really into it––at first. “I’m just blown away by the accuracy,” Link admitted after trying it later in the taste test. “It’s SO good too … y’all make some good ice cream,” Rhett added after eating his scoop. Unfortunately for Sea Salt and Honeycomb Toffee, Link wasn’t a fan of the toffee flavor the second time around and wanted this tub to be kicked out of the running. “I really like the custard, but the toffee can be a little polarizing,” Rhett agreed. Rhett & Link’s initial scores of 82 and 84, respectively, weren’t enough to save this flavor from landing in the fourth-place spot (honorable mention) in their ranking.

Tillamook Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

“The peanut butter boys” really wanted to champion the ribbons of peanut butter in this tub of ice cream. “Chocolate with ribbons of peanut butter is an undeniably heavenly experience,” Link declared after trying this flavor a second time. Fellow peanut butter boy Rhett was critical of this flavor. “It’s not as good as Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter World,” he said, explaining that the chocolate flavor isn’t as strong as he’d hoped it would be. While Rhett & Link initially gave this flavor pretty high scores—78 and 88, respectively––this pint ultimately walked away with the bronze.

 Tillamook White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream

Link really liked this flavor, giving it a score of 85. “It’s mild, it’s creamy, it’s cloud-like,” he said. Rhett initially fought to put this flavor in the top spot, despite that he initially gave it a somewhat lower score of 79, compared with Link’s score of 85. After tasting, re-tasting, and “zeroing in” on their favorite, Rhett & Link declared White Chocolate Raspberry the runner up.

Tillamook Peaches & Cream Ice Cream

As soon as they tried this flavor, Rhett & Link formed some sort of telepathic connection and shouted “84” in perfect unison. Rhett described this flavor as nostalgic because it makes him think of the homemade peach ice cream that people “back home” would make. “This bursts with accuracy. Unbridled peachiness,” Link said. The race to the top spot was very close between this flavor and White Chocolate Raspberry, but Link decided to let nostalgia win, and the pair named Peaches & Cream “Attila the Yum.”

Most hated: Oregon Hazelnut and Salted Caramel 

It was hate at first taste for our boys when they tried this flavor. Link said it tasted a lot like hazelnut. “If you don’t like hazelnut, you’re not gonna like this” Rhett doubled down on Link’s sentiment and asserted that, “It’s worse than hazelnut.” Hazelnut haters beware.

  • It would be great if all of these “gut check” articles had the scores of every single flavor in a table or something at the bottom of the article.

    • I agree! I came here for that and was disappointed not to see it.

    • Yeah I was hoping for more than just the top 4 favorite and least favorite, but everything ranked

  • How about trying the Little Debbie ice creams? ✌️😎
