I love ice cream. I don’t really know if I need to continue because that about sums it up! My love affair started with Schear’s ice cream back in my hometown. They made homemade ice cream and my favorite was bubblegum…yum! They have gone out of business and now I indulge in my favorite flavors of Ben & Jerry’s.
I think everyone knows that Ben & Jerry’s started in Vermont about 35 years ago. They have over 50 different flavors currently available and a lot of retired or ‘deceased’ flavors. I found it amusing to go to the flavor graveyard on their website to see some of the names. I was not surprised to see Purple Passion Fruit. Passion fruit flavored anything is just dreadful in my opinion.
I was sent some coupons so I could go out and buy several different flavors of Ben & Jerry’s. I was excited for my son to try their new line of Greek yogurt. He loves blueberry so I thought Blueberry Vanilla Graham was a perfect flavor for him. I also got Coffee Heath Bar Crunch, Late Night Snack, and Pistachio Pistachio.
The Blueberry Vanilla Graham was a big hit with my son and daughter. It’s yogurt right? So it’s healthy! They ate the whole pint and of course wanted more. I asked my son to tell me why he liked it and he said that it was ‘delicious’ and looked ‘beautiful’. Straight from the mouth of a three year old! We’ll just assume my daughter had the same thoughts by her ‘mmmm’s’. I was not a big fan and neither was my husband. It was not horrible but the flavor was not what I was expected. I wanted it to be more fruity.
My husband and I loved the Coffee Heath Bar Crunch I do like the Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch a little better though. This is only because I prefer vanilla to coffee flavored ice cream. I also enjoyed reading about their relationship with the Fair Trade Organization on the back of the pint. They use coffee that is Fair Trade Certified.
Next, we were dying to try Late Night Snack which is Jimmy Fallon’s flavor. It has bits of fudge covered potato chips in it. I was hesitant at first but it really tasted good! Sorry Colbert! My vote’s for Late Night Snack! (They have a feud about whose flavor is better.)
Last, I selfishly ate the whole pint of Pistachio Pistachio. And no it was not the same night! This flavor is my absolute favorite of any ice cream out there. I hate pistachio flavored ice cream and this is not your typical ‘fake’ flavor. It’s nice and refreshing and it has real whole pistachios too. I honestly buy this at the store once a week on or off sale. I won’t tell you how many I had to have when I was pregnant with the kids.
