We All Scream (Again)

Who has two thumbs, loves puns, and obviously doesn't own a tablet? This girl.

It's ice cream review time again.  I have learned that Ben and Jerry's mostly puts way too many goodies in their ice cream for my taste.  The first ice cream I'm reviewing today is Ben and Jerry's Everything But the.  The premise for this flavor is that it has a little bit of just about everything.  You can think of it as a kid at a sundae bar putting as much stuff as possible in his ice cream.  It was an alright flavor.  It had waaaaay too many goodies in it for my preference.  Also there were really big pieces of some of the goodies that were difficult to break into bite size pieces because they were frozen.  I would not get this flavor again.  I also tried Ben and Jerry's What a Cluster.  This flavor has caramel clusters and marshmallow swirl.  I found that the caramel clusters did not taste like caramel and they also had a weird texture.  I couldn't taste the marshmallow swirl at all.  I would not buy this flavor again either.  The flavor that I was super duper excited about was Red Velvet Cake.  It was so delicious and I have bought it again since.  The ice cream itself is red velvet flavored and it has actual red velvet cake pieces in it, with cream cheese frosting swirls.  It is every bit as delicious as it sounds.  The other flavor I recently tried is Ben and Jerry's Boston Creme Pie.  This flavor is also really delicious.  This is another less complicated and cluttered flavor.  It has Boston Creme Pie flavored ice cream with yellow cake pieces, chocolate pieces, and pastry cream swirls.  It's basically like eating a delicious pastry in ice cream form and I will buy it again in the future.  So that should get you by for now on your ice cream flavor purchases.  I'll be back with more ice cream reviews sometime again in the future.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  I won't be blogging after Monday, June 25th until next month.  I am going to be visiting my family, including my brother who is being deployed to Japan for two years after this visit.  I will also be moving at the end of this month to a teeny tiny room that doesn't even have a closet.  I'm sure I could find something better, but I just like knowing for sure where I'll be after I move out, so I'm signing the lease today.  For these reasons, I am shortening my giveaway to end June 18th, so make sure you enter before it's over.


  1. I've had the red velvet cake one and agree that it is super delicious.

  2. I haven't tried any of those flavours. My fave Ben and Jerry's is the Chocolate Fudge Brownie one. In the rare times of having a tub I end up eating it much too quickly.

  3. Great. Now I want ice cream at 1am. What you should really try is Talenti Gelato. I freaking LOVE their chocolate peanut butter cup. As in I love it enough that my children know it's my special ice cream that they can't have. Which is awful of me, but it's that good. I keep hoping my store will get more flavors to try besides coconut or chocolate chip. I want Pistachio or something Fun.
