Vampire Penguin is a newish ice cream place to me. It’s a franchise that you can find in the Southeast, with a lot of locations apparently in Florida.
We actually went there on Easter Saturday, so it was kind of funny to go to a place that definitely would thrive theme wise on Halloween.
It isn’t traditional ice cream. It feels almost like sand when you eat it, which is a horrible way to describe it. Think shaved ice with some gritty texture.
I had the Twix version, which doesn’t taste a lot like Twix.
I did get to try the Reese’s cup version which I really should’ve done so in the first place. It was a lot better than the Twix one.
But overall, I wasn’t very impressed by Vampire Penguin. It’s not really ice cream, it’s not really shaved ice, it’s very unique, but I don’t really see it hitting the spot when summertime comes around.
