Ben & Jerry's New Moo-phoria Flavors

[New for October 2018] So I mentioned that there are 4 new Moo-phoria flavors but wouldn't it be nice if I actually showed them to you right? I mean, I'm not personally excited because I think this line up is just money-grubbing trash, but don't let my opinion sway you away from these. (why yes, I do feel like being harsh right now. Blame the pain I've had in my neck all week).

Ben & Jerry's Moo-phoria Light Ice Cream
Cherry Garcia with a twist, Chocolate Cookie Enlightenment,
Mocha Fudge Brownie, and P.B. Marshmallow Swirl

If you remember, I tried two of the three Spring Moo-phoria flavors and classified them both as epic failures. Keep in mind that I used to be accused of being "too nice" to Ben & Jerry's back in the day. So why did I give this line up one more shot? Well, my wife does love Cherry Garcia, so I figured this would be my best shot at getting her opinion on this line up. Will she hate it?

Cherry Garcia with a twist

cheery & chocolate with cherries & fudge flakes

I take one bite and realize that I still completely hate this stuff. It's just wrong on every level. I choked down a very small serving and I am good. It tastes weird, feels weird, and lingers weird. Ahhhh, why is this stuff so bad.

Remember, this is just my -opinion-. Just because I hate it doesn't mean you can't like it. I hate plenty of things that many people enjoy. I also enjoy good & plenty which most people hate. See, it all balances out.

No second scoop, so stand by for my wife's thoughts: ok, she doesn't hate it. Something about it's no original cherry garcia, but it was good enough. (keep in mind she likes cherry garcia froyo). 

Verdict?  the failing continues
Buy Again?  No, just NO.

I like good & plenty too! So you're not all that strange...or we both are, I guess.

Those new flavors SOUND good... if only they'd make them into their regular (not light) ice cream pints.

I always try these new "light" ice creams, but there are so few I actually like. My go-to to get rid of them is a milkshake. I just need to stop buying them.

Please review the PB and marshmallows one. I cant wait to find out what it's like. That kind of flavor is my kind of ice cream.

Yup, I am one of the fans of the flavors I tried. I will definitely ty the PB one, love PB and marshmallow is a rare craving. The other flavors sound more meh to me this time.

Dubba Scoops said...

last anon is in charge of coming back and telling Mark how PB Marshmallow Swirl - cause I'm not doing it :)

@Anne: the lighter the texture, the more flavor it needs!
