Ben & Jerry's One Sweet World Ice Cream

[New for Fall 2017] Alrighty, time to take one for Team Dubba. No, wait, I'm Dubba. Time to take one for Team Second Scoop! Meh, still doesn't sound right, but whatever. Everyone remembers I don't like coffee ice cream right? Ok, good, because I'm about to step out of my comfort zone and in to the scoop zone with the new limited edition....

Ben & Jerry's One Sweet World Ice Cream
coffee caramel ice cream with fudge chunks
& swirls of marshmallow & salted caramel

Fun ice creams always tease the mix-ins.

I take my first bite, and yeah, it may say coffee caramel but you can still definitely taste the coffee. The good news is that it's not that strong. It's there but even a bitterness lightweight like myself can press on.

I keep scooping and get to the plentiful marshmallow swirl and the occasional caramel swirl. The #funfactor starts building because it's not just gooey marshmallow, this stuff is borderline marshmallow fluff. It's puffy, fluffly, and just a joy to eat (keep in mind that I've eaten more fluffernutter sandwiches than most of the populace).

Now there will always be differences from pint to pint, but mine has a ton of these fun little chocolate ampersands and they lock me in to giving a thumbs up to this flavor. As the chocolate builds up, the coffee takes more of a back seat and you are just left with this fun ooey gooey puffy fluffy chocolate chunk scoop of afternoon snack time. Sorry, wasn't sure how to end that sentence.

I don't like coffee ice cream but I wholeheartedly recommended giving this one a try. If you are a little skeptical, just split the pint with someone, problem solved. For everyone else, definitely give this one a shot.

On Second Scoop: I still hate coffee ice cream but man if I don't love this foolish ice cream. My pint just has so much chocolate and marshmallow that I can't help but have fun with every bite. I know some will disagree, but I think Ben & Jerry's has stepped up their game this year in terms of inclusions and I'm excited for what they have in store for 2018.

World Note: In France, this is called "Coffee for Democracy" (link)

Verdict?  very fun pint
Buy Again?  yup!

I’m with you on this one. I don’t like coffee - but all of the components of this pint balance it out enough that I like it. I don’t love it. I won’t buy it again. But I will enjoy finishing the pint.

Purely in the interest of science, I've tried to create a flavor of cream using all my least favorite b&j's flavorings. I came up with bourbon, coconut, and banana neapolitan ice cream with coffee swirl and mint chips.

@Anon: it definitely won't be a daily scoop for me either, but I just love the #funfactor here of that gooey swirl and all the chocolate. I forgot to mention that I'd be curious to see to see this combo in a caramel or toffee base too.

@aol: just go every day til you find it, it sells out super quick!

@Anon#2: ewwww. why would you do that? :)

This isn't exclusive to any store, right?

Dubba Scoops said...

Nope, it should eventually be everywhere.

Where did you find this? I've been trying to get my hands on it for the last week and am going insane slowly.

Dubba Scoops said...

Stop & Shop, but also spied at Kroger and Target. Just keep your eyes peeled and try to hit as many different grocery store chains as possible.

This is somewhat a graveyard flavour resurrected, the first Dave Matthews Band collab. In like 2003 I was obsessed with it, and have yet to find a Ben & Jerry's pint to match it.

After 15-odd years I found the experience close enough to the original, and gives hope to Ben & Jerry's fans holding out for other graveyard flavours.....but pray you don't live near me if you're keen to try this one. I'm like the Grinch nowadays!

Dubba Scoops said...

I never tried the original, but if anyone is curious, you can see it here

"Caramel and Coffee Ice Creams with Marshmallow & Caramel Swirls
& Coffee Flavored Fudge Chips"

have you ever had the enlightened "cold brew" ice cream? I don't like coffee, but i really liked this--but it has no mix ins, so you either like the base flavor or don't (i personally hate mix-ins unless it's fruit chunks in that fruit flavor's ice cream)

Dubba Scoops said...

As much as I don't like coffee, my insides like erythritol even less (the sugar alternative in enlightened).

Seems like Phish Food with a coffee caramel base instead of chocolate? Interesting!

EndlessUniverse said...

Not a coffee fan but I found this flavor tolerable due to the other components. What stands out though are the fudge chunks. I think if it were just a chocolate swirl, it'd go down better as a sort of caramel mocha frappe combo.

Dubba Scoops said...

hello! i'm not sure if you like the fudge chunks or don't like them? or do you like them but think they were the wrong choice?

EndlessUniverse said...

@Dubba Scoops

I just didnt think the chunks worked too well for this flavor. If it were instead a fudge or chocolate swirl, I think the flavor would have a consistent smoothness reminicent of an actual frappe. Easier to eat when melted a bit without the constant chewing. But that's just me.

Dubba Scoops said...

thanks for responding! I kind of had the opposite opinion because I felt like we finally have a coffee flavor that is properly chunked up with chocolate (as well as all the fun marshmallow goo). In other words, I enjoyed that constant distraction from any kind of coffee bitterness. I also enjoyed it for being different than any other coffee flavor that I can recall (though technically I think Perry's had a similar idea last year but B&J's turned it up to 11)

EndlessUniverse said...

Hey thanks for hearing me out. Upon trying the second half of the pint, I think I am warming up to the chunks, so to speak.

Dubba Scoops said...

That's what I'm here for :)

My husband and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this new flavor!!!

Finally found it. Was ok but just way too much marshmallow for me. If I were guessing, 1/4 to 1/3 of the pint was the marshmallow.

Dubba Scoops said...

You can never have too much marshmallow (says the guy who eats straight marshmallow) :)

I tease ofcourse. If you aren't a huge marshmallow person than you don't want to bother with this one.
