Ben & Jerry's Banana Peanut Butter Greek Frozen Yogurt Review

[2012 through 2015] Ok, I really really really wanted to get to the first of two planned Friday night fights, but unfortunately I'm having a battle of my own trying to get this stubborn heartburn in check. So, rather than pumping multiple chocolate covered goodies into my gullet, I decided to go where I usually dare not go... the world of banana flavored frozen treats.

Look, I'm not foolish enough to think I'm going to like this. Sure, we've got the peanut butter factor, but after the disastrous encounter with Ben & Jerry's long lost Strawberry Banana Froyo, I have little hope for this one..

Ben & Jerry's Greek Frozen Yogurt is Banana Greek Frozen Yogurt with Peanut Buttery Swirls but at first glance it looks like not much of anything. It doesn't really smell much either... I think... not sure really...

Well, this is how far I got. I was repulsed from the first bite but soldiered on for several more smaller bites. I did discover the nifty little pb swirl, but it's not enough to make me gag down the slimy banana base.

You knew I wouldn't like this, I knew I wouldn't like this, but Ben & Jerry's sent this free sample so I felt obligated to try it. It still has the yogurt funk of the others, though it comes together in a weird wonky amalgam with the banana. Spoons down for me, everyone else is welcome to try it though.

Verdict?  Ewwww
Buy Again?  I'm glad I didn't buy it in the first place

Sorry you didn't like this one Dubba, feel free to mail it to me b/c I downed the whole pint in one sitting. The banana base has that banana puree/baby food taste which I loved! Combined with the peanut butter I knew I was in trouble!
Btw I'm finally going for the DQ Blizzard of the Month tonight - can't wait to let you know what I think ;)

yeah, I only had the mini but that was enough for me to know I wasn't crazy about it. The banana is very laffy taffy - esq

dude, never feel bad about liking something no one else likes, it's all good - the only banana flavored thing I like are bananas, and even then I don't like them that much

I liked this and Ben and Jerry's Banana Cream Pie even though I dislike bananas. The peanut butter swirl makes a big difference.
