Sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately

I just moved back to school and I am doing a lot of stuff for my grad school applications.
I also haven't bought any ice cream recently because of Hurricane Irene. My dorm's power has been going on and off the past few days so I don't want to buy ice cream and have it melt all over my freezer. So I am hoping I will get some ice cream by this weekend but it depends on the power.
Sorry guys!!! =(

Bonnaroo Buzz!

I was looking through the freezer/ice cream/Ben and Jerry's section at Target and I found this flavor. It looked really interesting so I wanted to try it ASAP. So here is the review.

Bonnaroo Buzz was created by Ben and Jerry's as was a result of a joint partnership with The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, a 4-day, multi-stage camping festival held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee (http://www.bonnaroo.com/).

"Bonnaroo with donate a share of their proceeds to the Bonnaroo Works Fund whose goal is to further the organization's community investment and philanthropic endeavors." (http://www.benjerry.com/bonnaroobuzz/)

Bonnaroo Buzz consists of "Coffee and Malt Ice Creams with Whiskey Caramel Swirls and English Toffee Pieces." Not your average ice cream flavor to say the least.

This flavor will make your taste buds explode. The coffee and malt ice creams together are very creamy and the two flavors blend together sooooo well. Then there is the whiskey caramel swirl. This put everything over the top. It is not overwhelming, so you can still taste the two ice creams. And it is not too caramel-y; it doesn't stick to your teeth and it is not in "gobs". It is a "swirl" that is mixed in between the coffee and malt ice creams.   And last but not least; the English Toffee Pieces. These weren't very visible in the flavor (at least I didn't think so) but you can definitely taste it.

Overall, this flavor is very good. I rate it a 10/10 because of its originality and uniqueness (I have never seen and ice cream like this before). I will definitely buy this again in a heartbeat.

Half Baked!!!!

So simple but so good. Chocolate and Vanilla ice cream mixed with Fudge Brownies and Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

According to the Ben & Jerry's website, "the insider story on this flavor (Half Baked) was the code name "Drakes Mistakes", Drake Wallis is the St. Albans plant manager. He came to work and reported that he was at a scoop shop over the weekend and witnessed people ordering two different flavors in the same dish".

What is great about this flavor is that you get the best of both worlds; chocolate and vanilla ice cream. So, you get the creamy and smooth ice cream and then come the fudge brownies and chocolate chip cookie dough. It's a nice change of texture and it works great with one another (how can you go wrong with this combo??). And another thing I usually stress about in my reviews is the amount of pieces of fudge brownie and gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough. In this flavor, there is plenty of brownies and dough gobs which fill up each spoonful.

My rating of this flavor: 9.5/10. It is not my favorite flavor there (unlike Chunky Monkey and Phish Food), but it is still pretty good nevertheless.
