Hershey's Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream
Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ice Cream with Swirls of Caramel,
Oatmeal Cookie Chunks and Chocolate Chips
Just as a I mentioned in my last review, I missed out trying this flavor's Ben & Jerry's equivalent. There has been quite the uproar over Ben & Jerry's sending Oatmeal Cookie Chunk to the graveyard. I can't blame them because from all I've heard and the description of that flavor, it just sounds amazing. I honestly don't even believe I ever even saw it in a store around me while it was still alive either. Thankfully, Hershey's has brought to the market what could be a worthy replacement.
Like I mentioned, the caramel is more abundant in this pint. It's still injected instead of actually swirled which is something I don't really like. That said, when you hit a pocket of caramel and cookie, you have a blissful bite. Thankfully Hershey's didn't skimp on either component because I felt like I experienced sheer bliss for at least 80% of my pint.
That said, the chocolate chips were nowhere to be found. I'm not sure if they were in the cookies themselves or got obliterated when being mixed. I can honestly say I didn't sense their presence in anyway possible. That might be a good thing though because I feel like they would've been out of place otherwise.
While I can't compare this to the late Oatmeal Cookie Chunk, I can say if you're looking for a replacement, look no further than a pint of Hershey's version. Even if it doesn't live up to Ben & Jerry's, this could easily be in my Top 5 of new products come the end of the year!
Verdict? Hershey's need to make this a permanent flavor
