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?
