Ben and Jerry's was on sale at Stop and Shop this week so I got a really good price for 2 pints. I picked up Chocolate Therapy and Cheesecake Brownie. Both looked awesome so I had to get them. I am not sure which flavor I am going to try first; it will be hard to pick. Hopefully I will have a review of one of these flavors by next week sometime (not sure when yet because I have a busy week but I will be procrastinating as usual).

Chocolate Nougat Crunch!!

It has been very warm outside in Connecticut the past few days and this ice cream has really hit the spot!

Ben and Jerry's Chocolate nougat Crunch consists of Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Fudge Covered Wafer Cookies and a Chocolate Nougat Swirl.

The sweet ice cream is really, really, REALLY sweet (which is a good thing). I was almost surprised on how sweet it tasted. But it also has a vanilla-y taste to it which tasted very good. The fudge covered wafer cookies have a crunch to them and are not softened at all by the ice cream. And there is a good amount of fudge covering the cookies. They are bite size and there was a lot of them in my pint.

I was expecting the swirl to be chocolate colored but it is actually a nougat color. I was expecting the swirl to be more chocolate-y but I didn't really taste the chocolate in the swirl. But it was very good nevertheless.

Overall, the flavor is really good. But I feel that the title of the flavor is quite deceiving since there was not a lot of chocolate in it. It may have been my taste buds but the only noticeable chocolate I had tasted was from the fudge covered wafers. I did not really taste a lot of chocolate in the swirl; I feel that the nougat flavor is more overpowering than the chocolate flavor. But it is a really cool flavor regardless.

I need to buy another flavor. I am not sure when I will be able to go food shopping next. I will let you all know when I get another flavor.

Happy Eating!!!

I went food shopping today and got a new flavor!!!

I got Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Nougat Crunch!! I wanted ice cream this time and not FroYo. I saw this flavor and it looks interesting. Hopefully i will get a review out by the end of this week (that a long shot but one can always hope!)

Strawberry Shortcake!

First off, I hope everyone had a great free cone day. Unfortunately I was not able to attend (I wish there was a Ben and Jerry's Scoop Shop closer to my school!!!).

This week, I tried and reviewed Ben and Jerry's new flavor Strawberry Shortcake Greek FroYo!

Ben and Jerry's Greek FroYo is Strawberry Greek Frozen Yogurt with Shortbread Pieces.

This is a simple flavor compared to Ben and Jerry's Ice Creams. The Strawberry Greek yogurt is not as sour as the blueberry Greek FroYo flavor I had a few weeks ago. There are pieces of strawberry in the Greek yogurt as well. The pieces of shortcake are small and mixed throughout the pint. I do wish there was more of these shortcake pieces in the pint. I am not sure if it is just my pint that doesn't have a lot of pieces of shortcake in it. The Strawberry Greek Yogurt is the prominent flavor in this pint.

One thing that I have been noticing about the Greek FroYo flavors is that they are very simple. They don't have a lot of crazy flavors or textures. But it is nice to be able to switch things up a bit from the crazy flavors of Ben and Jerry's ice creams. I wonder if Ben and Jerry's is going to make more Greek Yogurt flavors in the future.

So, now I don't have anymore Ben and Jerry's flavors in my freezer! I am going to have to make a trip next week to the supermarket and pick up a pint. There are 2 Ben and Jerry's Greek FroYo flavors left that I haven't tried yet. But I may go for a new ice cream flavor. Or a regular frozen yogurt flavor. I will see what the supermarket has when I go food shopping. 

That is it for now. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Happy Easter and Happy Passover!
