There is always more room in the ice cream aisle for more flavors -- just like there is always more room for ice cream even if it's just a spoonful. But who are we kidding? Sometimes there is room for the whole pint. Which is exactly why I think Ben & Jerry's need to stop pretending that this new ice cream style allows you to save some for later.
Yes, I said NEW! New ice cream time is here! In not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR new combinations of deliciousness. And it's designed so we get all we need in one bite.
They are called Cores. Ben & Jerry's have brought us ice cream with a core center of fudge, caramel, or raspberry jam. It's like the perfect sundae in a pint. And yes, I did say four new Ben & Jerry's choices but just three new cores. That's because they have gifted us with four new pints of flavors surrounding the cores.
Your choices are:
Hazed & Confused -- A chocolate and hazelnut ice cream with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core. (I'm drooling.)
Peanut Butter Fudge -- For the peanut butter cup lovers, there is the smooth peanut butter fudge core surrounded by peanut butter ice cream with mini peanut butter cups. Peanut butter!!!
Salted Caramel -- A sweet cream ice cream with blondies featuring a salted caramel core.
That's My Jam -- Chocolate and raspberry ice cream on each side with a raspberry core that even have yummy raspberry seeds in it! That IS my jam!
The Cores are made so you can get all you need and want from your eclectic ice cream in one spoonful. It will be for sale next month. I don't care much about this spoonful design because I'm just going to dig into the whole pint. Though I do like the idea of indulging on the fudge core and just the core in one sweet bite.
Which new Core are you most excited to try? Be honest, do you eat the whole pint, too?
