Peanut Butter Cup and 100th Post!

It is fitting that this flavor is the new flavor that I tried this week. I have been on a peanut butter "kick" lately and this definitely helped my craving.

Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup is Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cups.

This pint is definitely for the peanut butter fan. It is a relatively simple flavor and it doesn't have a lot of components to it. The peanut butter ice cream is very smooth and creamy just like other Ben and Jerry's ice creams. I thought that the peanut butter ice cream was not very overwhelming or strong. The strong peanut butter taste comes from the actual peanut butter cups in the pint. The chunks of the cups range from small to pretty large. And you cannot forget the chocolate that surrounds the peanut butter in the cup pieces (just like Reese's Peanut Butter Cup). It also looks like there are small pieces of chocolate in the pint as well (maybe from the outside of the peanut butter cup pieces).

As I said in the last post, I tried all of the flavors in my local Walmart. Because of this, I went to Kroger to get new flavors (they also had a sale on Ben and Jerry's!). Since they had a sale going on, I picked up 2 new pints. I was able to get Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz, and the Pineapple Passionfruit Greek FroYo. They had the other new flavors there also but I will only be in Michigan for a few more weeks because the semester ends soon. And I will probably get the new flavors while I am home when the semester ends.

For the next review, I will probably try the Pineapple Passionfruit Greek FroYo. The review should be out sometime next week since I have a BIG test later this week (wish me luck!).

Thanks for reading!

Back from Spring Break with a new flavor...and a favor

Just came back to Michigan a few days ago from Spring Break. It's always nice to be back on the East Coast, even if I spent most of my break working. Regardless of that, it still went by too fast. But it is now time to finish off the semester.

I went to Walmart and picked up Peanut Butter Cup. I noticed that I have tried every Ben and Jerry's flavor at my Walmart! This means that I have to go to my local Kroger instead for Ben and Jerry's. I hope Kroger has more (and different) flavors, including Ben and Jerry's new flavors, which is something that Walmart does not have in stock.

I will be on the look out for "Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz" and their new Greek FroYo flavors "Liz Lemon", "Pineapple Passionfruit", and "Vanilla Honey Caramel".

And here is the favor that I posted in the title:
Other than being a Ben and Jerry's fan, I am a graduate student studying Physical Therapy. There is a petition for adding physical therapists and occupational therapists to the federal loan forgiveness program. If you have time, please sign this petition! It takes a minute. Thanks in advance!!!!

Midterms are over, and it is time for another review!

This week was probably one of the longest weeks that I have ever head. But my midterms are over and now I have time for a review!

The new flavor is Banana Peanut Butter Greek FroYo. I wanted to change it up a little bit from the ice cream.

Ben and Jerry's Banana Peanut Butter Greek FroYo is banana Greek yogurt with peanut buttery swirl.

I find this to be an interesting flavor. As like any type of Greek yogurt, it has a little bit more of a sour taste to it than regular yogurt. The sour-ness from the yogurt and the sweetness of the banana flavor are actually a pretty good match. After tasting this, I wonder why Greek yogurt makers don't make a banana flavor (at least I haven't seen a banana flavor Greek yogurt yet). The peanut butter adds a salty and nutty taste to the pint. The peanut butter swirl wasn't really a swirl in my pint (see picture below). The picture below doesn't show it very well but there is peanut butter in the pint.

I will let you guys know when I get another flavor. I am hoping to find Coffee Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz or see if I can get a hand on Candy Bar Pie.
