Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Macadamia Ice Cream
Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Creams with Fudge Covered Macadamia Nuts
First off, I don't think I've ever had macadamia nuts before. Flavor is decent, not too potent, and they're fairly soft and easy to bite through. They also have a fudge coating, not to thick though. The base ice cream mix is good quality and good texture (as always), but to be honest, I don't know if it's winning me over. Actually, let's rephrase that: I'm not sure I was in the mood for it. For whatever reason, B&J have swirled the chocolate and vanilla ice cream together, so you wind up with a mild chocolate flavor. I'd say it's less potent than a chocolate milkshake. It's respectable, don't get me wrong, just be prepared for something mild, almost like a popsicle....well, a popsicle with nuts anyway.
Bonus Info: Images from a sculptor in the U.K. who was inspired by this new Ben and Jerry's fair trade flavor.
On Second Scoop: Well, I'm still bored with this flavor. The ratio of chocolate to vanilla creates a mixed flavor that just doesn't seem to excite me. The macadamia nuts also don't add much zing.
