Finally, Banana Split

Here it is Banana Split! 

It consists of Banana and Strawberry Ice Cream with Walnuts, Fudge Chunks and Fudge Swirl.

I choose this flavor because I haven't had a banana split in a long time. And buying all of the ingredients to make a banana split would have been pretty expensive (along with the amount of work it would take to actually make the banana split, since I was lazy). I thought that this would be a great (and lazy) alternative to actually making a banana split.

This flavor is pretty good. It doesn't say this in the description but I think that there are actual pieces of strawberries in it as well (you can clearly see the red pieces in the picture). I think this makes the strawberry ice cream more "powerful" than the banana ice cream. But I can still definitely taste the banana ice cream though. The nice thing about having the two flavors is that they complement each other really well. And it tastes awesome.

There is also an abundance of fudge chunks and swirl in the pint, which is great. One thing that I would want more of is the walnuts. I don't know if it was just my pint but there wasn't a lot of walnuts in it. But, I have a feeling that it was just my pint. But other than that, the flavor was pretty good.

I will probably get another flavor sometime next week. I am trying not to go to the supermarket as much as I used to in the fall since I have a lot of money on my meal plan at school. And we do not have Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream at my school =( But I will let you guys know when I get another flavor.

Thanks for reading!!!

Living the AmeriCone Dream

This weeks new Ben and Jerry's flavor is Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream.

This flavor consists of Vanilla Ice Cream with a Caramel Swirl and Fudge Covered Waffle Cone Pieces.

The flavor was released in 2007. An article from wikipedia states that "Colbert is donating the proceeds from the sale of AmeriCone Dream to charity through The Stephen Cobert AmeriCone Dream Fund. The Fund will support charities of concern to Colbert such as food and medical assistance for disadvantaged children, helping veterans and their familes, and environmental causes". 

Let me start with the waffle cones. There is a lot of waffle cone pieces in the pint. You always have a lot of pieces in each spoonfull. And they are all different sizes, not one generic size. Some are big and some are small. And they are crunchy and crisp! I expected the fudge covered cone pieces to be soft and chewy (since the pieces are in the ice cream and the pint was taken in and out of the freezer several times). I thought that would make the texture of the cone pieces softer but they still had the crunchy waffle cone texture.

And the caramel swirl is an understatement (the swirl part that is). The picture doesn't really display it but there is a lot of caramel in the pint. I feel like there is more than a swirl of caramel in the pint.

What I really like about this flavor is that it includes the most simple ice cream ingredients in one spoonful without the messyness of a ice cream cone. There is nothing more traditional that an ice cream cone with vanilla ice cream with caramel and chocolate. And Ben and Jerrys made it easy for everyone to have this traditional flavor without the hassle that comes with carrying a cone of ice cream that is usually very messy. It is also great that the proceeds from the sales of this flavor goes to Colbert's Dream Fund. And what is better than eating ice cream and giving to charity!?!?

That is it for now. I did not buy another pint yet and I am not sure when I will be able to get a new flavor. I will let you guys know when I buy a new pint.

Thanks for reading and happy eating!
