Ben & Jerry's Cheesecake Brownie Ice Cream
cheesecake ice cream with cheesecake brownie chunks
After all these years, I still expect to see a swirl when I open this pint.
(Oh man, what if they put their excellent chocolate cookie swirl in here?!)
Original 2008 Review from when it was ONE Cheesecake Brownie: You know how a cheesecake can sometimes attract non-cheesecake lovers? we once had a peanut butter cup cheesecake that was out of this world. Well, this new flavor from Ben & Jerry's isn't breaking any boundaries and I only recommend it for cheesecake lovers. It's kinda weird but the cheesecake flavor doesn't hit you on every bite, just now and then. However, take a break, and the only taste you are left with is cheesecake. I guess the problem is that upon seeing the container, you expect to open it up and find cheesecake ice cream swirled with chocolate and brownie bites. Instead, there is no swirl and you just get an occasional chocolate covered cheesecake bite. At the very least, I expected a much stronger brownie taste, but it's almost non-existent. I'm really disappointed, I guess I set my expectations way too high on this one.
On the positive side, this flavor is trying to help bring attention to the ONE movement which is trying to end poverty.
