Mud Pie and other stuff

So I didn't go Vermont; the trip was cancelled. But I did graduate last Sunday and I am officially done with my undergraduate career. So now I just have to focus on relaxing/working this summer, getting ready for graduate school, and eating more Ben and Jerry's Flavors!

Here is the next flavor, Mud Pie!

Mud Pie is Chocolate and Irish Coffee Liqueur Ice Creams with a Chocolate Cookie Swirl.

It is a cool flavor. The Irish coffee liqueur and chocolate ice creams are swirled together which is nice because you pretty much get an even amount of each ice cream. When I opened the pint, there was a big chunk of chocolate cookie. Underneath this chunk, the chocolate cookie was swirled with the 2 ice creams. In this flavor, the chocolate ice cream is more powerful than the Irish coffee liqueur ice cream. This may be caused by the chocolate cookie swirl as well (double the chocolate). And I actually like it this way. I can definitely taste the Irish coffee liqueur ice cream and I think it enhances the flavor of the ice cream but it is not the main flavor that I tasted.

That is it for now. I think the next flavor is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, which is a classic ice cream flavor. I am interested to see how this Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (CCCD for short haha) flavor is different than other CCCD ice creams that I tasted.

Thanks for reading and happy eating!!!!!

Keep you guys up to date

The good news: I went food shopping today and picked up 2 new flavors which include Mud Pie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! 

The other good news: I am graduating from college tomorrow! I am still in shock that it is over and that I will not be returning to Quinnipiac next year in the fall. I will be continuing my studies at the University of Michigan for 3 years! Since I am graduating, I am taking a week off from work to just relax and...go to Vermont for a few days! I am not sure of the details of this Vermont adventure but we may be going to the Ben and Jerry's factory to take a tour! Anyways, I am excited for this adventure and extremely nervous about graduation because I don't want to mess up or trip on stage or something. But in less than 24 hours, I will be a college graduate. I still cannot believe that I am saying that. 

The not so good news: Because of graduation and these festivities, I probably will not be posting anything for a little while. Just giving you all a heads up. Hopefully I can give a summary after Memorial Day weekend with possibly another review. 

So that's it for now. I got to get some sleep so I am ready for tomorrow. Wish me luck and congrats to all of the graduates! We did it Class of 2012!!!!!!!!!!!

Check out this blog!!!

I have been off from school for the past 2 days so I had a lot of free time. I was bored and watching TV so I decided to see what other ice cream blogs are out there. And I found a great and fun blog called Scoopalicious. There are reviews of certain ice creams along with recipes for ice cream.
Definitely check out the blog here:

I won't have any new flavors for a little while

I need to go food shopping with my mom for now on! She got Cinnamon Bun and Banana Split which I have already tried lol. It is ok though. And the Cinnamon Bun flavor went great with the apple pie I had last night. I recommend that you guys should give it a try. It is genius.

Chocolate Therapy!

Just in time for finals, this weeks Ben and Jerry's flavor is Chocolate Therapy!

Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Therapy is Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Cookies and Swirls of Chocolate Pudding Ice Cream.

There is soooooo much chocolate in this flavor. For me, tt is hard to pick out the chocolate ice cream from the chocolate pudding. All of the flavors blended in so well with one another. But you can definitely see the chocolate pudding with the chocolate ice cream (you can see the different shades of brown from the different chocolates in the picture below).

There is a little bit of a crunch due to the chocolate cookies in the ice cream. There are not a lot of chocolate cookie pieces within the pint. But I actually don't mind it because the chocolate flavor is so intense and a little bit of a different texture is a nice addition to the flavor.

This flavor is a chocolate lover's dream. It really is a therapy for anything. If you LOVE chocolate, this flavor is for you. This is probably the best chocolate ice cream that I have ever tasted.

I do not know what my next flavor is going to be. I am moving out of my dorm tomorrow (sad face) and I am going back home. It is 10 days until graduation and I am freaking out a little bit (just a little). Anyways, I will try and get a new flavor soon and I will let you guys know what flavor I get.

Thanks for reading!

Cheesecake Brownie Review!!

I decided to try the Cheesecake Brownie Flavor first.

This Ben and Jerry's flavor consists of Cheesecake Ice Cream with Cheesecake Brownie Chunks.

I opened up the pint and I could smell the cheesecake ice cream before you taste it. It is really strong (which I liked), very creamy and the ice cream is a plain cheese cake flavor. As you can see from the picture below, there were a lot of brownie chunks. The chunks came in all sizes but there was a lot of them. The good thing about the chunks was that they are very soft and are just like regular brownies that you bake. They melt in your mouth along with the ice cream.

This flavor is very simple because it just contains the ice cream and the brownies. I do like the simplicity of the flavor and I would like to see more complex cheesecake flavors in the future (I know that they have some other flavors but it would be cool to see what else Ben and Jerry's can come up with).

I will try Ben and Jerry's new flavor Chocolate Therapy next week. The school year is almost over and I am getting ready to graduate from college so this the Chocolate Therapy flavor may be the last flavor for a little while. Fortunately I do not have finals (just papers) so I should have a review buy early next week.

Happy Eating!!
