May was the final month of Bobtail Year 2, during which I receive two pints of homemade ice cream a month from Bobtail.

"Butterscotch, huh? Been a while." This was my reaction and everyone else's when I mentioned Bobtail's latest, Butterscotch Cookie Dough. (The previous month's flavor boasted butterscotch in the name, but hadn't really had much of the taste.)
Absence hath made my heart grow fonder. And good thing, too, since there's enough here to o.d. on the stuff.
There are more tiny butterscotch chips than any mix-in I've ever encountered at Bobtail. When I took the lid off my pint I'm sure there were dozens looking back at me just on the top layer, even amongst the couple chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough and pecans. Hunks of crunch, I tells ya. And it's sweet, enough to give a little tingle to your teeth.
I was sad to see this pint end. Another hit for Bobtail!
