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?

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.

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.

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!
