Ben & Jerry's Volun-Tiramisu Ice Cream
I cracked the pint open and it smells... sweet, very sweet.
I take my first bite with a finger piece and.. hmmm. Well, let's, ummmm
Ok, let's start with a few scoops of just the base actually. It's sweet. Definitely tiramisu-ish. I'm getting the coffee vibe, but not crazy like. More of a rich, sweet coffee-ish base.
For every bite I take, I instantly want another. It's going down real easy, but maybe because it's a bit soft.
Wow, all I see is finger pieces everywhere! Crazy, I've got 4 on my fork! They are tougher than I thought they would be, but that's not a bad thing. We've got some resistance going on when I bite them. It's like a very solid cake or maybe even a super soft cookie.
Now it's fairly soft from the car ride back so eating the edge is like drinking a tiramisu milkshake. Actually, reminds of like a mild mocha shake.
hmmm, I seem to have found a coffee-like flavor that I can tolerate. Someone at work was teasing me that drinking coffee is all about mastering the cream and sugar, and that seems to be what is trying to win me over here.
You know, I think I'm glad it's a straight flavor and not a swirl. There's nothing wrong with consistancy in a flavor like this.
I think I'm filling up. Mmm, more bites. I'm definitely appreciating the uniqueness of them. As with all cake like bits, I'm not sure I can taste them directly because the base is too sweet and too flavorful. These bits just aren't something you find in ice cream. Ofcourse, their texture might be enhanced by the fact my ice cream is a bit soft, so keep that in mind when you try this one.
Ok, I put it away.
Well, this is definitely an interesting one. Coffee lovers will adore this one, and the rest of us will try it, some of us repeatedly. It's coffee, but not too coffee. It's pretty sweet, but not crazy sweet. It's got unique mix ins. Unless you despise coffee even more than I do, I say give this one a try.
Buy again? probably not
