Back from Michigan and Canada, and Cherry Garica!!!

A few days ago, I got back from my trip to my new school in Michigan and Canada. It was a lot of fun seeing my new graduate school (The University of Michigan) and I visited Canada (the Toronto area) for the first time. And now it is back to normal for another month until I move to Michigan in the end of August.

The next flavor is Cherry Garcia! Now I have a confession to make...I never had Cherry Garcia before this. I know it is one of Ben and Jerry's classic flavors but I actually HATED cherries when I was younger. I even hated the cherry flavored candies. I did not like anything cherry. I only started liking cherries recently so I decided to try and review the classic flavor.

Cherry Garcia consists of Cherry Ice Cream with Cherries and Fudge Flakes. It is named after the legendary guitarist Jerry Garcia in 1987.

The cherry ice cream flavor itself is not overpowering; there is a hint of cherry flavor. It is very creamy just like other Ben and Jerry's flavors. I would say that most of the cherry flavor comes from the actual cherries. In my pint, I had HUGE pieces of cherries. I actually had half of a whole cherry in the pint. There is a mixture of big and small chunks of chocolate. The cherries and chocolate together make an incredible but simple combo of flavors.

I am not sure what the next flavor will be. I will let you guys know when I get another flavor.

Thanks for reading!!!!

Peanut Butter World!

New flavor is Peanut Butter World!

Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter World consists of Milk Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Buttery Swirls and Chocolate Cookie Swirls.
Can you tell I bought the pint at Target?
My first thought of the flavor was that it tastes just like a Reese's peanut butter cup or Tagalongs (the Girl Scout Cookie). There are actually chucks of peanut butter in my spoonfuls. Because of this, the peanut butter is more overpowering than the chocolate flavors from the ice cream and cookie swirl. There are also different textures in the pint; the milk chocolate ice cream is creamy, the peanut butter is smooth and melts in your mouth, and the chocolate cookie swirl adds a little crunch to the flavor. All of these flavors are great and they make Peanut Butter World a very intense flavor of Ben and Jerry's.

My next review will be of...Cherry Garcia. But there is a catch...I will be away for the next week or so because I have my orientation for graduate school in Michigan. I am hoping to get a review in 2 weekends or so.

Thanks for reading!

I have Peanut Butter World and...Cherry Garcia!

I went to Target yesterday, not knowing what flavors I wanted to get. I looked around and I saw the Peanut Butter World flavor, which is a flavor that I have never seen before and I decided to get that flavor. I also decided to get the classic flavor Cherry Garcia because I feel like I have waited too long to review it.

I am hoping to get a review for the Peanut Butter World flavor soon because the next week and a half is going to be crazy. I have a few graduation parties to go to, a concert, and I am going to be in Michigan and Canada next week for graduate school orientation/road trip/vacation.

So be on the lookout for the Peanut Butter World review soon!
