Ben & Jerry's Brownie Chew Gooder
A (discontinued) Target Exclusive

[New for 2010, discontinued for 2013] I stopped at Target at lunch, so that means it's finally time to try the two new exclusive flavors. Berry Voluntary was almost gone, but there was plenty of Brownie Chew Gooder on hand. The exact description is Vanilla Caramel Ice Cream with Fudge Brownies & a Caramel Swirl.


it's open, mini spoon is in hand

strong caramel flavor, brownie bits are cute little cubes... wonder if they are bigger in a full size pint

got less swirl with that bite, mmm, that was better... yup, its mellowing out for me

 I love that there are brownie bits everywhere, but I wish they were a bit bigger so I would notice them more when I bite down.

to clarify: it's not that I'm not getting brownie flavor, It's just that I keep expecting chewy bits

I am just burning through this treat, one little serving isnt going to cut it - I guess I should have went with the pint (which was on sale for just $2.39!!)

the consistency seems to be a bit weird, a bit like a light ice cream - it's 5g of sat fat which seems a bit low for a Ben & Jerry's flavor - or maybe my sample melted at some point and got a little funky

uggg, it's gone and now I'm more hungry than when I started.

There is a lingering caramel flavor, maybe with a hint of a brownie vibe too it. It's funny that the first bite struck me with a strong caramel flavor but quickly mellowed out. You know, now that I think about it, the swirl seemed to disappear after those first few bites.

Overall I like it, but it's one of those flavors where I cant help but think I need to do a second scoop to fully appreciate it. I guess I'll be going back for a full pint in the near future.
