Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Fudge Core
Chocolate & Peanut Butter ice creams with mini peanut butter cups
and a peanut butter fudge core
Yeah, peanut butter fudge.... how glorious does that sound?
I'll try not to eat it in one serving... how could this go wrong?
I try the chocolate first, that's fine. I aim for these new mini peanut butter cups, yup, those are jut fine too. I try the peanut butter ice cream next. It's still good, though it's weird eating it without fluff or anything else. That just leaves the core. Oh the anticipation, the excitement, the slow motion scooping of...
Oh my word, what in the world is this stuff, it's terrible. I was in denial for the first few bites, but this core is just awful. Sorry B&J, not sure what went wrong here, but this is so unexpected. I don't get it, I really don't. Going all natural(ish) can lead to more unique flavors and textures, but this is just not amusing on any level. It's not sweet, or peanut-y, or anything else, it just tastes awful.... so I started eating around it.
The good news is there are plenty of positives here. While not visible at first, the mini pb cups are indeed on both sides of the pint which helps spice up both base ice creams. Oh, and there appears to be about a gazillion of them. The fact is, this ice cream would get an easy re-buy if it wasn't for that silly core.
That's all I got on this one. I'll re-scoop on Monday, maybe the core won't shock me as much then.
Verdict? Everything is fine except the core!
Buy Again? if I really needed a pb cup fix
P.S. Sorry for the terrible photography!
P.S.S. Ben & Jerry's should be making an official announcement next week about the new core flavors. Let us know if you try this one, "that's my jam", "salted caramel", or "hazed & confused".
P.S.S.S. Just had a flash back to Ben & Jerry's Flipped Out! sundae cups... they too had a really weird peanut butter fudge on them that made me really dislike them. I'm thinking that same fudge might be back again!
On Second Scoop: Yeah, everything about this ice cream is just fine except that silly, strange core. I guess the question will be if you can overlook the core enough to repurchase the rest of it. I know some will, even I would be tempted to buy this again to get an abundance of those mini pb cups in that peanut butter ice cream.
