Ben and Jerry's Blueberry Vanilla Graham Greek FroYo Review!!

I tried the new Ben and Jerry's Blueberry Vanilla Graham Greek FroYo!

Blueberry Vanilla Graham consists of Blueberry and Vanilla Greek Frozen Yogurts with a Graham Cracker Swirl.

Love the cow!!
The one thing I noticed right away is that the FroYo has that slightly sourish kind of taste that Greek yogurt has. If you are not familiar with Greek yogurt, it tastes a little bit more sour than regular yogurt. All yogurt is made with milk and healthy bacteria. The difference between the 2 yogurts is that the Greek yogurt is strained to separate the whey (from the milk) and liquid. Along with the liquid goes some salt and sugar from lactose (an enzyme found in milk). This makes the Greek yogurt thicker and more sour. (Some of the information from this paragraph is from

There is a nice blend of the blueberry and vanilla Greek yogurts. One doesn't overpower the other. What I really liked about it is that the 2 yogurts are swirled together (along with the graham cracker swirl). Because of this, you get an generous portion of the blueberry and vanilla yogurts in one spoonful.

As for the graham cracker swirl, there isn't a lot of it in my pint. The swirl gives the yogurt a hint of the graham cracker flavor along with a different texture. The swirl gives every spoonful a little bit of a crunchy texture while the yogurt gives it a smooth texture. This allows the graham cracker swirl to enhance the flavor of the 2 Greek yogurts but it doesn't overpower them.

It looks so pretty!!!!
So that is it for Blueberry Vanilla Graham. If you didn't buy a Ben and Jerry's Greek FroYo flavor yet, don't hesitate to. I think that it is absolute genius for Ben and Jerry's to develop the idea of making Greek FroYo. And it is also really, really good.

The next flavor that I will be trying is the Ben and Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek FroYo. I might be able to get a review of it by next weekend but early next week seems more realistic.

Thanks for reading!!

I found the Greek FroYo!!

I went shopping yesterday and I found them!! Stop and Shop had 2 rows of just the Greek FroYo flavors.
I bought a pint of the Raspberry Fudge Chunk and Blueberry Vanilla Graham. My friend bought 2 pints of the Peanut Butter Banana.

I tried some of the Blueberry Vanilla Graham first and I hope to get a review out in a few days.

Thanks for reading!!

I am really excited for this. I LOVE Greek yogurt (I always have some after my 5K training). These flavors will definitely add more diversity to the already diverse list of flavors that are out on the market now.  

I am interested to see how the texture of the FroYo will be and how it will compare to the traditional Greek yogurt and regular FroYo. And who knows, I might have to substitute my traditional Greek yogurt for B&J Greek yogurt FroYo after my training!

The new flavors include:
Banana Peanut Butter, Blueberry Vanilla Graham, Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Strawberry Shortcake, & Vanilla

I am going to look for these flavors next time I go food shopping (which maybe this week or next week).

New Blog Designs!!

I had some free time today so I wanted to just play around with the design. I don't think I am done playing around with it yet but I felt like it needed a change. I am going to look around for some different templates and designs. Does anyone know where I can find free templates or designs somewhere? Or how to make a design/template? I want to try to make mine unique. But I am not very good at designing stuff. So any help or feedback would be awesome!!

New Flavors?!?!?!?!?

So, Ben and Jerry's stated on Twitter today that they are going to share new flavors tomorrow!!!!! I am excited to see what flavors they created. Anybody have any ideas on what they came new flavors they came up with???

Rocky Road-ish!!!

It's Rocky Road time (finally)!!!

Finally writing a new post. Life has been super crazy lately with graduate schools and tests and work. I barely had enough time to eat ice cream!

About 2 weeks ago, I bought 2 flavors, Rocky Road-ish and Dublin Mudslide. I decided to go with Rocky Road-ish because Rocky Road is a classic flavor. Ben and Jerry's Rocky Road-ish consists of Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream with a Toasted Marshmallow Swirl and Fudge Covered Almonds.

The toasted marshmallow ice cream is amazing. You definitely taste the toasted flavor. The toasted marshmallow swirl gives the flavor its "kick" and enhances the marshmallow flavor and makes it more intense. I really like the swirl because has a little bit of the marshmallow texture (airy and fluffy). There are a lot of almonds in it as well. But I do not think that they are full almonds. A lot of the almonds are small and don't have that almond look and shape to it. I think that there are just pieces of almonds, not whole almonds. But nevertheless, almonds are almonds regardless of what shape and size they are.

Overall, I like this flavor. Great mixture of flavors between the fudge, almonds, marshmallow swirl and marshmallow ice cream.

My next flavor is Dublin Mudslide. I hope to get a review of that flavor early next week.

Thanks for reading!

Super Bowl tonight!!!

I am so excited!!! My suite-mates and I are cooking SO MUCH food for this. And (of course) I have some Ben and Jerry's for desert if I don't stuff myself with all of the food.

Speaking of the game, our room is pretty split between the 2 teams. I am going to cheer for the Giants since I am from NY. Our school is in Connecticut so we have a mix of both Pat and G-Men fans. But I will be happy tonight whatever the outcome of the game is because the atmosphere in our suite and school is going to be

Anyways, I went to the supermarket and Ben and Jerry's was on sale!!! So I got two new flavors, Dublin Mudslide and Rocky Road-ish. I am going to be trying one of the new flavors pretty soon and I will give a review by the end of the week!

I hope everyone has a great Super Bowl Sunday!!
