Me, Ben & Jerry


Are any of you fellow ice cream lovers aware that Ben & Jerry's has released one of the yummiest new flavors I've ever had? Don't be concerned, my first love--Chubby Hubby--is still near and dear to my heart, but my goodness, have you tried their Cinnamon Buns? I tried it at one of their stores for the first time last summer and was very excited. I tried to find it in the grocery store afterward and was unsuccessful until this last, wonderful Tuesday.

Cinnamon Buns as described by the container is: "Caramel Ice Cream with Cinnamon Bun Dough and a Caramel Streusel Swirl." Okay, okay, like Jerry McGuire's wife, "You had me at Cinnamon Bun."

I was also enthused to see on their website they are also offering another new flavor--Creme Brulee which has me intrigued. There are several other flavors as well--Raspberry Chocolate Chunk (which is light!!!!), Peach Cobbler, Mint Chocolate Chunk, etc. etc.

My mom has always been a devotee of their Cherry Garcia which is okay for me. I usually prefer ice cream with something in the title such as, "Chocolate ice cream covered in chocolate sauce, swirled with chunks of chocolate," but that's my own personal addiction. I was wondering, what are your favorite Ben & Jerry flavors?

I'm so excited to be the first to comment on a post regarding items that are near and dear to my heart! I absolutely LOVE Cinnamon Buns ice cream! I too had it at the Ben and Jerry's store last April on free ice cream day. I found it at the grocery store soon after that (sorry you didn't-I should have told you!). But my absolute favorite B&J flavor is Gobfather. You'll love it Audrey--chocolate ice cream, chocolate and nougat swirl.

Ice cream. . .sigh. . .

I can't have it right now, well I am not supposed to. Ainsley breaks out in a nasty rash when I eat dairy. I do eat ice cream though every once in awhile.

The other day, I broke down, apologized to Ainsley before hand and had a bowl of non other than Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie.

I would have to say at the very top of my favorite. But there are days when I really go for some Willie Nelson Peach Cobbler. LOVE peaces, so this is a close second for me. It's a new flavor, they don't have plain peach any more. . . I think.

When I had that last bowl of ice cream, to my joy, Ainsley didn't seem to break out so bad. Cross your fingers, but I think she is outgrowing this reaction!

Cinnamon Buns here I come!!!

I have tried the Creme Bruele!!! It is to die for....literally, it could very well be my next best friend on those lonely nights. I easily ate up my carton in a night, and tried to be considerate to share a bit with Jared, but when he said it was only, "okay" I chowed down!!!

But I didn't tell you my favorite: It's Karmel Sutra.

So I did see this in the store the other day and wondered if it tasted anything like say, CinnaBon, you know what I mean? If it does, well then, sign me up.
