Vermont's Finest Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia Ice Cream
Cherry Ice Cream with Cherries & Fudge Flakes
Dude, those aren't flakes, those are chocolate bricks.
I think people love the plentitude of the bricks, look at all of them.
Me, I'd love to see Cherry Garcia Jr made with super thin flakes that crunch instead of thud.
I wanted to throw up a close up of the big cherries.
I wish they were softer like the ones in my amaretto cherry gelato review.
Now that I'm more mature and more sophisticated, do I love this one now? Honestly, I still don't get it. I mean, it's really well made and there's no artificial flavors hanging about. Quality is not the issue here. I just don't dig giant chocolate chunks with my cherry flavor. I want to enjoy one or the other, not both. The super creamy cherry gelato flavor the other day was just fun. Here, I really do get frustrated by the chunks and I don't really appreciate the cherry skins either. I just want cherry flavored ice cream, that's all.
You can call me crazy but this one still doesn't work for me. It's not like I choked it down or anything, perish the thought, but I just wouldn't pick this up on purpose for myself. If they ever want to switch it up and add say graham cracker crust swirl with sugar crumble topping chunks, give me a call because I'll be first in line to try it.
Verdict? I still don't get it (wife still adores it)
Buy Again? not for me, but for my wife
