Ok, apparently, I need to keep my taste buds in check now and then. Whether its once every other week or maybe every third week, I need to inject either Ben & Jerry's or Häagen-Dazs into my ice cream diet. Even though I've really been enjoying the Stone Ridge creamery chocolate chip ice cream these last few days, it only took one bite of this delicious flavor melting in my mouth to remind me of how great ice cream can be.
The thing that won me over was my second bite. It perfectly melted in my mouth and and my brain went to ice cream heaven. Oh, so good. So fatty, but oh so good. Definite winner here. Would I justify the high fat content over a tasty Rocky Road like Breyers*? No, but every now and then, you know, before running say 5 or 6 miles, yeah, I could eat this. Ten years ago this container would have been gone in one sitting.
Oh joy, it even has a nice chunk of your daily cholesterol. Nice touch.
On Second Scoop: We all agree, this ice cream is fantastic, just top notch stuff. The chocolate is just so rich and full of true cocoa taste. My only warning, which is my fault, not their's, is be careful of the Marshmallow. It is very sweet and I landed right it a big pool of it. I couldn't resist the urge and took a huge spoonful that was probably 70% marshmallow. Wow!! So very sweet! Little too sweet actually, think my brain just spun once or twice. It really is great, just remember that when you scoop, the marshmallow is there to accent the chocolate, not bury it.
*Update: Breyers has messed with their Rocky Road and I am unamused.
