Ben & Jerry's EMPOWER mint Ice Cream
peppermint ice cream with fudge brownies and fudge swirls
No fake red or green here.
That's not to say the brownies aren't working some magic as well. As they warm up just a smidge, they start to blend with the other flavors. I haven't gotten any big huge chunks yet like we've seen in some of their other flavors, but I'll keep my eyes open. As is, it's a well made, super premium product that I need to go grab a little more of....
Ok, I was good and only took three more bites (it would have been 30 more bites if it had been the middle of the day instead of the end of it). To recap, excellent peppermint base. It has a nice cooling factor without being overpowering. The fudge swirl is excellent and I'm not usually a fan of things like their fudge cores. Brownies round it out. Tasty trifecta.
I can't imagine how great this would be on a brownie sundae. Ok, technically it is practically a brownie sundae, but on top of a fresh brownie, oh man, epic.
On Second Scoop: Oh yeah, even better on the second scooping. Slow scoop so you get a nice balance of everything on your spoon and you will be oh so happy like I am now. I really do love the way this one came together and I still think it's the fudge sauce that pulls it together. The swirl just seems much more chocolatey than their typical fudge offering and it seals the deal for me. Well done Ben & Jerry's.
