The other day I was almost sure I saw one of my co-workers eating ice cream.... and then I half heard a joke about an ice cream truck. You know, you really shouldn't joke about these things. Well, today, on a day most humid, two of my co-workers asked if I wanted anything from Ben & Jerry's.
Silly coworkers, Of course I do! In fact, I went with them!
Now you all know I get a kick out of Ben & Jerry's shakes, and I always try to pick up a scoop shoppe only flavor, so I thought I would be good and try a Black Raspberry frozen yogurt shake. I definitely enjoyed my Half Baked Froyo shake, so I thought I would be different.
To my surprise, my server asked if I wanted skim milk or whole milk. Interesting, I've never been asked that before, but I appreciated it none the less. Now I've already knocked myself down to a mere 10 calories of fat per serving by going with froyo, so I went whole milk - but don't be surprised if I get some regular ice cream with skim milk at some point.
For whatever reason, our servers did a terrible job blending the shakes. I wound up just stirring mine up when we got back to the office, but my coworker actually went back in for a second blend - which was totally understandably, especially considering they had overflowed his cup and then put a flat lid on top making the whole thing explode everywhere. At $5.50 a shake, you expect a little better.
Sorry, I'm rambling about the details, and what you really want to know is that the shake was decent, but I am surprised by how potent the froyo was. I mean, it's been "watered" down by milk here, and the flavor is still coming on strong, maybe even a smidge too strong. You know how some raspberry flavors have that real strong taste. It's not tart, but it's potent. Well, that's what I tasted here. Maybe that's why Magic Brownie is swirled with sweet cream ice cream, it's to take the flavor down a notch.
So, it just didn't work for me. I can't imagine ever wanting this again. Ok, maybe I'm just bitter because I felt full for the next 6 hours (don't ask me why, but I kid you not). Purchase at your own risk.
