I just ate 5 pints of ice cream… best review ever!! hehe Just kidding, I shared with my family, but still it is a pretty great review! Ben & Jerry’s is known for their always fun, sometimes unique, ice cream flavors. Believe it or not I am not completely versed in Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and so trying these fun 5 flavors was completely new to me!
About Ben & Jerry’s
Ben and Jerry’s met in junior high and became life long friends. After both having failed life plans they decided to team up to start a business. Since they both liked ice cream they decided an ice cream company was what they should do. So after taking a class on ice cream making and combining their life savings with a loan Ben & Jerry’s was born.
Ben & Jerry’s sent me a fun package with 5 free pint coupons. I tried:
Cinnamon Buns – This is caramel ice cream with Cinnamon bun dough and a cinnamon struesel swirl. I was excited for this because I love cinnamon rolls, but for me this didn’t translate well in ice cream form. The dough bites were a little chewy and I didn’t care for the texture. I would give this 1 out of 5 stars.
Blueberry Vanilla Graham Green Frozen Yogurt – This is blueberry and vanilla green frozen yogurts with a graham cracker swirl. I am on a huge greek yogurt kick right now and so I was super excited to try this. I really like the flavor of this frozen yogurt. The blueberry and vanilla together are a yummy, creamy combo. The graham cracker swirl isn’t my favorite part though. It comes across as a little grainy. Overall it is pretty good! I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
Phish Food – Chocolate ice cream with gooey marshmallow swirls, caramel swirls and fudge fish. I have heard of this ice cream before, but I hadn’t tried it before this review. I LOVE this ice cream! I love that the caramel is thick so that it is almost chewy. I love the little chocolate fish in the ice cream like scoring a big chuck of chocolate. This was by far my favorite that I tried! I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
Half Baked – Chocolate and Vanilla ice creams mixed with gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough and fudge brownies. This is super tasty as well. The cookie dough has a yummy flavor as do the brownies. Plus I feel like there are generous amounts of each hidden in the ice cream. I give this 4 out of 5 stars!
Mint Chocolate Cookie – Peppermint ice cream with chocolate sandwich cookies. I really like mint things, but only certain flavors of mint. This happened to be a flavor of mint I didn’t care for. I also thought the cookies were on the dry and crumbly side and I might be crazy but this ice cream seemed way colder than the others. I couldn’t eat it without my teeth being sensitive to the cold or getting a brain freeze. I give this one 3 out of 5 stars.
It was so fun to check out the Ben & Jerry’s flavors at several local grocery stores and get to try some great flavors I hadn’t tried before. I’m very happy to announce that Ben & Jerry’s is offering one of my readers the same great package they sent me which includes:
