Ben & Jerry's NEW Core Range

Even before I moved into my own home there was many Saturday nights when I would pop to the supermarket and return home with a DVD and tub of Ben & Jerry's. It's quite common now for us to sit with a tub and a spoon, I love it when I'm sharing with friends and we pass the tub back and forth between spoonfuls but I remember the old days when this style of ice cream eating was 'very American' and us Brits would take a scoop from a large tub and serve in a bowl or cone.

Ben & Jerry recently got in touch about the launch of the sequel to their Core range, the Cookie Core and asked if I'd like to sample some of the new flavours. The answer was a swift 'yes please'. You may have spotted these new flavours in your local stores, What-a-lotta Chocolate, Utter Peanut Butter Clutter and Speculoos? Specu-Love.

I dived straight into the freezer aisle and came home with What-a-lotta Chocolate* a must for chocolate lovers. Strange fact, despite not being the biggest chocolate lover I do love chocolate ice cream. What-a-lotta Chocolate has a core of crushed chocolate cookie surrounded by chocolate ice cream - amazing. Ben & Jerry's say 'they cannot accept responsibility for the level of chocolate euphoria reached with this flavour'.

My other choice was Speculoos? Specu-Love* which was definitely my favourite. Ginger, cinnamon, spicy, caramelized biscuits are crumbled into caramel ice cream and it's biscuit core. It reminded me of eating popcorn without those annoying bits that get stuck in the teeth. This was the tub I may, and only may have eating in one day.

If you're a big Ben & Jerry's fan and fancy getting a little envious, take a look at the US site which lists the flavours available there. When I went to Florida a few years ago we all had to pick one flavour we couldn't get at home and spent an evening trying them.

What ice cream are you treating yourself to this Bank Holiday Monday?

  1. I used to love eating ben and jerrys - i think they are a really good company. I do not eat dairy though, so no ice cream for me :( Love Gone with the Wind, it's definitely one of my favorite films.
