Top Four

Top Four 29: Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavors

 

  my lunch today consists of a handful of

  spinach a couple of slices of cucumber

  one hard-boiled egg and 24 flavors of

  ice cream are you ready all right we're

  trying to group them into groups we're

  gonna start with the lightest group

  which we believe is the fruit and nut

  group but not all right so so we should

  be four as we start and as tip start to

  opening up all the ice creams we should

  discuss that we are we are doing top

  four Ben and Jerry's ice cream flavors

  oh yeah that's what we're doing guys

  you're not here with us and you can't

  actually see what we're doing you can't

  see our table full of ice cream

  tablecloth so we're doing we're gonna do

  them in groups because ice cream melts

  quickly and it's summertime and so we

  are starting out we have 24 flavors

  total these these were our criteria were

  basically no limited batch stuff cuz you

  know we that this podcast wouldn't age

  well if we did limited batch stuff we we

  left out all of the non-dairy flavors

  because I've tried a couple of here in

  there and they're okay but I would say

  the nothing to write home about

  would you agree I don't I didn't even

  see them in the grocery store so I don't

  even know yeah actually haven't I saw

  them only only on the website this year

  last year I tried a few of them when

  they first came out and they're fine

  if you can't have dairy they're a good

  option but if you can't have dairy the

  dairy ones are better we went to three

  different grocery stores to find the

  selection that we have today and I think

  we did pretty good we left out a couple

  of big ones that I think that people

  might or might not be well they might be

  upset about but it would they would

  never make our list so we didn't include

  them like I'm sorry chunky monkey but if

  you happen like I have I can't eat

  banana due to a stomach allergy and so

  that rules out anything banana for me so

  the rule is like if TIFF doesn't like it

  which tip doesn't like walnuts so that

  ruled out the banana for her we also

  didn't include any discontinued flavors

  primarily because we can't get them but

  I would like to pour one out here well

  two one outs to slowly melt one out for

  Bonnaroo buzz Bonnaroo buzz is a

  wonderful flavor and the little

  spin-offs that have come off of it like

  urban bourbon I do not think are as good

  and all right so this is unlike a lot of

  our other top four episodes everyone

  snow

  we do do a big tasting episode like this

  because we're just not sure of what our

  top four is because you know you get ice

  cream sometimes here and there or or

  more often like all the time like we do

  but you aren't really sure when you're

  talking about comparing flavors because

  there's so many like chunky brownies

  surprise sundae swirl tastic you know

  hardcore yeah I don't even know but it

  the the adjectives just keep on coming

  with Ben Jerry's so we decided to

  actually get as many as we could and

  compare them to each other also one

  other disclaimer we did not include any

  of the core flavors the horns the ones

  that have like the the center cylinder

  of some kind of rich pasty stuff with

  the ice cream circle around it I have

  mixed feelings about the core flavors

  they seem to go nuts with them like two

  years ago when they first invented that

  or whatever and it seemed like every

  flit every new flavor that came out for

  for like a year was a core flavor and I

  honestly didn't find anything

  particularly noteworthy about any of

  them that they did have a hazelnut one

  that seems to be no longer in production

  that was okay but the problem with the

  core is to me is they have like the

  Neapolitan ice cream problem where you

  have hey hey hey don't knock me upon ice

  cream well but kind of love Neapolitan

  ice cream but it you'd but if you don't

  really care for any one of those parts

  it's kind of it kind of sucks to eat and

  that's the problem with with the core is

  that they put like two or three totally

  separate elements just kind of next to

  each other in the tub and you have to

  like all two or three of them for it to

  really be good if there's one thing you

  don't care for like the hazelnut one I

  loved the the hazelnut chocolate core

  and the hazelnut flavored ice cream but

  next to it was just a boring chocolate

  ice cream that was taking up a third of

  the container that I didn't really care

  for and I would just kind of plow

  through like like really wasting those

  calories for this thing I don't really

  care for just to really keep it even and

  not be a jerk and get to the two things

  that did like but the whole point of New

  Holland ice cream is eating it all

  together and that's why it's so good

  right but the problem is that's very

  challenging to come up with like a

  flavor combination really you like all

  three of these things like Neapolitan

  chocolate vanilla and strawberry even

  that is controversial like Eva

  people even don't like one of those

  things because why you always get the

  you know if you have one of the little

  like rectangular big tubs of Neapolitan

  out at a party there's always gonna be

  like you know the chocolate ones gonna

  be two feet high and the vanilla and

  strawberry are gonna be down at the

  bottom that's because people are animals

  right so anyway so we left most of the

  cores out corn partly just to narrow it

  down a little bit and probably because

  we've never really found any that really

  seemed worth it to us I'm glad that you

  have feelings about course I do

  all right let's get in this before they

  become little puddles first so we have

  we have seven out right now yep seven so

  two of them are actually the same but

  different versions we have a Froyo

  version because I think my number one is

  going to be a possible Froyo yes and

  this is also the only Froyo variety that

  we have here yeah Frio has I think a

  similar problem is the non-dairy ones

  which is most of them are fine but the

  dairy ones are better that this is my

  said moose no okay you so TIFF disagrees

  on the one we have here okay so what we

  have here is I think my favorite one of

  all of the ice creams we're gonna start

  off big people because you only live

  once right and summertime and we're a

  living large so we're gonna be logs are

  a little large we're gonna get larger to

  get larger yeah okay well and to be fair

  on that point as a general statement I

  would rather like be very responsible in

  the rest of my diet and exercise just to

  make room in the budget for Ben and

  Jerry sometimes because I we love ice

  cream everyone lets ice cream we love

  ice cream and I would say if you're

  going to eat ice cream you might as well

  eat the best ice cream like it's not

  worth the calories to eat crappy ice

  cream but Ben and Jerry's even though it

  is quite high calorie is awesome ice

  cream and we've tried so many others we

  went through a tell NT gelato phase and

  we even thought about doing a top four

  on those and it's just not as good like

  it's fine like other ice creams can be

  good but Ben & Jerry's is better simple

  as that

  Thank You PSA okay so what I was going

  to say is alright I love Cherry Garcia

  it is my favorite but it yeah I like it

  better in the Froyo version which is the

  frozen you

  one because it's less grainy if you have

  the ice-cream version versus the frozen

  yogurt the frozen yogurt is a lot

  smoother and the ice cream one is much

  more grainy in the main ice cream area

  okay yeah you know like it's not about

  the it's not the berries aren't grainy

  or anything it's the the main holding

  liquid yeah all right let's crack these

  suckers open all right let's do it

  the logistics of trying to taste 24

  flavors of ice cream on a podcast are

  quite something

  especially cuz we're not doing it at our

  kitchen table because the room there is

  incredibly echoey I'd make for terrible

  audio so we're trying to do those all in

  the office on this little tiny table

  this is not the things we do for for you

  are our wonderful audience

  this is really something else oh this is

  just a mess okay okay so now we're

  facing this direction all right so all

  right well we got here we are calling

  this the what was it fruit and nut group

  yes which also includes the Cheesecake

  group you know sometimes the weird

  breeds get in some group and you're like

  why why is the pomeranian working I

  don't know what it's working for but it

  no it's not really in a working group

  but when we tried to separate these into

  groups of like you know five or so so we

  could do it do without them all melting

  it's very hard to to make coherent

  groups of Ben and Jerry's later because

  there's a lot of overlaps like well once

  you include you know she's cake and what

  about red velvet cake is that cheese

  cake and then the cinnamon buns were

  kind of cake like it yeah okay start out

  okay for it we have red velvet cake we

  have strawberry cheesecake we have two

  types of Cherry Garcia we have

  cheesecake brownie we have pistachio and

  cinnamon buns I'm starting out with a

  red velvet cake okay I really like the

  strawberry it really melds the alright

  go for the middle in the middle it's not

  okay what I really like about strawberry

  cheesecake ice cream

  it's from Ben and Jerry's

  is it has the graham swirl in it which

  is oh we should have had the s'mores out

  I'm a sucker for Graham swirls I love

  Graham swirls and ice cream so this has

  like that little fruity kind of acidic

  flavor from the strawberries which is

  really nice and light vanilla ice cream

  well it says cheesecake ice cream but so

  it's just extra flavor right angle cake

  by the way is awesome

  I just dripped it on my pants okay and

  it also has the graham in it so it's

  really good the very first flavor you

  are you driven your pants it's okay stay

  you're due for a wash strawberry

  cheesecake versus red velvet cake all

  right I have a lot of feelings about red

  velvet in general not this ice cream

  which I haven't tried yet

  oh my it's good right

  it tastes like cake batter yeah the red

  velvet cake is way better than I thought

  it would be the strawberry cheesecake I

  do love that Graham element really does

  it for me too

  okay I'm having way more than one

  spoonful of each another

  I'm gonna be hell to sustain this level

  of ice cream eating okay I'm trying to

  be like a spoonful and a half at most

  for the most part I think that red

  velvet cake is a lie because it's a

  total fraud of a cake cuz it's just

  chocolate cake with a whole bunch of red

  dye in it and it doesn't make it any

  kind of special it's chocolate cake with

  cream cheese icing which i think is as a

  cake it is the most live a cake if there

  ever did cake but it didn't Ben and

  Jerry's ice cream right now this is

  delicious because it is it has the rich

  cakey flavor it tastes like you're

  eating cake batter so wet cinnamon buns

  is also surprisingly good it's almost

  like cinnamon cookie dough like they

  have these little chunks of what

  basically is cookie dough and it's it's

  surprisingly good I did not think this

  along with the red velvet cake I don't

  have high hopes for the the cinnamon bun

  I figured it would be a little bit

  boring but it's green yeah I was really

  good to do it isn't that me so hard

  that's what she said moving on to the in

  the cake room now moving on to

  cheesecake brownie this is the cinnamon

  bun wise says dough and cinnamon

  streusel swirl I am really into anything

  that has kind of like cakey cookie

  pieces in it she's a brownie to me is

  kind of a letdown it

  as advertiser I'm ready to be let down

  let me see I need to not let just feel

  like the other cake flavor is totally

  out classic all right if this were like

  the only ice cream I can get my hands on

  it's very good yeah but it doesn't stand

  out in a memorable way right and the

  others really do the others are great

  this just kind of falls into the

  category of vanilla ice cream with stuff

  floating in it

  which we should that should have been

  another group that would have been like

  half the ice creams all right so now I'm

  trying I'm moving on to the Cherry

  Garcia family the regular one is quite

  awesome all right let me try it again

  maybe I got some bad batches so I detect

  no difference in greenness between the

  two I also though detect very little

  difference at all between the two

  between the between the Cherry Garcia

  ice cream versus Froyo so in that way I

  would say did you go for the Froyo then

  it's less calories okay I also do not

  detect a difference in the graininess in

  this batch so maybe I had a bad batch

  and that's why I got scared away from

  the ice cream version but I feel like

  the the cherry the the cherry frozen

  yogurt is more flavorful than the cherry

  ice cream I feel like the cherry ice

  cream gets overtaken with like all the

  dairy and the richness of the cream

  whereas the Froyo it keeps that really

  light cherry flavor and it stands out a

  lot more so it is still bangin hmm

  okay I would also then move on to

  pistachio pistachio and I like any

  pistachio ice cream really from like the

  cheap like bright green crazy stuff in

  the generic flavors to the fancy one

  here and pistachio pistachio is awesome

  I will however say that you know like

  the the she that she has brown anyone

  with it like she's cake brownie

  pistachio pistachio doesn't really stand

  out like is nothing where those things

  were like if we have if it's all we have

  I will greatly enjoy it okay but do you

  not agree no I do not agree because

  pistachio pistachio has this really

  beautiful light flavor again another

  thing why I really like the Cherry

  Garcia

  because sometimes ice cream with a whole

  bunch of stuff in it it's so heavy and

  at the end of a big meal or especially

  in the summertime you have a barbecue or

  a cookout or something and you're ready

  for some ice cream I really like a light

  ice cream at the end of the day I don't

  want to feel

  like I'm eating a pile of cookies and

  brownies and fudge and caramel and all

  that stuff that's just so it's like a

  meal in itself so I feel like both

  Cherry Garcia Froyo and pistachio

  pistachio have that really nice light

  element in addition to the actual red

  velvet cake which I'm surprised be this

  red velvet cake is must be chocolate

  cake but in this ice cream it is not

  chocolate at all but it's just red cake

  yeah so I just read tasted small amounts

  of my three top cakes the these cinnamon

  buns the strawberry cheesecake and the

  red velvet cake I would say red velvet

  cake wild is delicious I think

  strawberry cheesecake out does it for

  what for me

  so are we ranking these in groupings

  well I have to I'm kinda I'm figuring we

  do like a like a two-stage thing like

  you take the finalists after each round

  and if you like a finalist tasting I and

  I would say cinnamon buns has a similar

  issue like all three of those are

  delicious but strawberry cheesecakes

  extra little tangy eNOS an extra graham

  swirl I think do it for me so strawberry

  cheesecake is my top pick in the cake

  family and the rest of these I think you

  know Cherry Garcia is good you know it's

  it's fine but the rest of these none of

  them I don't think are gonna make my top

  four but strawberry cheesecake might

  well I I'm definitely Cherry Garcia

  Froyo is still way up there for me I

  just really really like it um I'm

  stashing a pistachio it might even be a

  contender and strawberry cheesecake - oh

  I just really like this group oh this is

  like ice cream yeah I think I think I'm

  learning that I think I just really

  scream okay all right let's put these

  back in the freezer and prepare the next

  group all right well TIFF is doing that

  the cookie group we have half baked out

  of this swirl chocolate chip cookie

  dough

  mint chocolate cookie cookies and milk

  and cookies and s'mores should s'mores

  really being aigis is a smaller sandwich

  that's gonna be another show can't we

  just take a second while these all melt

  too to pause and think about how melty

  Margo is you're chatting Machat stirs

  how happy is our life that somebody's

  paying us cash the wonderful people at

  Casper are paying us to do this Thank

  You Casper we will enjoy sleeping our

  fat butts on your we're gonna have to

  spend some time when I catch my mattress

  I have to reheat all this ice cream I

  know I'm already not feeling so well you

  see you you took too big of a spoon well

  okay I have a freezer confession as I

  was putting them away I tried some again

  you're gonna regret that in about 20

  minutes

  I said solidify at my brain as the you

  know ice cream was unsolicited like

  reaching anymore is a mint chocolate

  cookie it should be a good palate

  cleanser min cello's cookie

  it's just Oreos in mint ice cream see

  s'mores is fine it I'm not really a

  chocolate ice cream person I'm gonna

  dislike chocolate ice cream I just I

  would if given the chance to have a

  chocolate ice cream full of stuff or

  vanilla ice cream full of stuff I will

  choose the vanilla one every time I do

  wish the s'mores was made with vanilla

  ice cream and said because I love a

  marshmallow sorrel in my ice cream Unni

  and yeah I did not like this as much as

  I thought coz to be yeah it does the

  chocolate just berry like that also

  claims to have a graham swirl I found no

  trace of that hold on I'm digging I'm

  gonna dig oh that's dangerous it's not

  dangerous this is science we have our

  safety goggles on I'm still not finding

  any I'm now gonna try your mint and

  cookies I'm deep down in the court

  nothing nothing yeah so the mint cookie

  one yeah it's fine but to me this is

  like a basic mint chocolate chip slash

  cookies and cream anybody could do this

  you don't need Ben and Jerry's to do

  that I feel like if you're if you're

  going for Ben and Jerry's I feel like

  you can get a more interesting flavor

  than that alright I found some I found

  some stuff in here I'm gonna eat it I'm

  still digging through the s'mores yeah

  even when I'm eating the prime location

  of all the stuff it's still totally

  overpowered by the chocolate so if you

  love chocolate ice cream this is pretty

  good but again I don't think this is

  gonna make the list and we went to a

  special store for this one - yeah the

  milk and cookies I would say is a really

  good version of cookies and cream they

  they add that whenever that like that

  brown stuff is with the light brown

  stuff in there it's a chocolate chip

  cookie oh okay it's chocolate chip

  cookies oh there's more chocolate

  cookies as opposed to like a minty Oreos

  okay yeah that makes more sense that's

  the best kind of like the cookie dough

  part of it

  I really enjoyed milking cookies

  but I would say it has the same problem

  as the Mint cookie one which is I think

  if you're with Ben and Jared you can do

  better yeah

  if I wanted a cookie and cream ice cream

  this is better than like a standard

  cookie in cream yeah it agree with that

  all right gonna go to standard cookie

  dough that there's one lump right on top

  and I'll go with half baked while you're

  doing that well that's a pretty big lump

  too again cookie dough ice cream you

  don't have to buy Ben and Jerry's get

  cookie dough ice cream I would say it's

  not worth it coming to you from experts

  at a tough war not worth it man this

  grip is disappointing me so and then

  here I have half baked which is

  essentially cookie dough with fudge

  brownie dough or fudge brownies I agree

  with you on the regular cookie dough not

  worth it oh really big Peter brave yeah

  the half baked I think is more

  interesting but it's also I think it's

  more for chocolate ice cream lovers it's

  not doing much for me it a lot of that

  stuff gets buried

  I literally just ate like a full brownie

  with some ice cream melted next to it I

  mean a grant like that is kind of the

  point like so I understand why people

  like it but yeah it doesn't do anything

  for me mm-hmm doesn't do it okay last is

  um

  out of this world out of this world it's

  not you know cookie flavor my hand is so

  cold from passing around these pints

  okay first of all problems hashtag

  buttery brown sugar ice cream with fudgy

  flakes and oatmeal cinnamon cookie

  swirled it tastes just like Cinnabon but

  with chocolate chips in it nope nope I'm

  feeling nothing from this group I had

  very high hopes for odorless rogues I'm

  a huge fan of oatmeal cookies and I

  didn't do it for me

  it just it's fine it's not bad I mean

  it's hard to make a bad tasting ice

  cream that's just not good it's just not

  it's not enough there's not there's

  nothing special about it it's kind of

  it's all it's almost bland

  Wow I feel like we started on such a

  high where I couldn't even pick which

  ones I like the best and now this whole

  group that's what how many ice creams

  six ice creams now that I have no

  feelings about I would rather have any

  of the previous groups ice creams then

  the top pick of these I agree I'm really

  happy we have similar ice cream tastes

  because it allows us to share a pint on

  the couch instead of having to have two

  okay cookie group kind of a bust

  sorry cookies you're out all right

  that's two groups down two to go

  and I'll take this halftime chance to

  tell you our Ben and Jerry's factory

  story we went on a hike the only hike

  slash camping trip we've ever gone on my

  wonderful all Eagle Scout friends from

  high school convinced us that we should

  go hike on the long trail with them in

  Vermont this was not a good idea it went

  quite poorly and halfway through the

  trip about half the group just decided

  we can't and won't to continue it's like

  three days in and so half the group

  decided they wanted to keep going so the

  half that left the group went to the Ben

  Jerry's Factory and a Benihana and

  texted the still camping group pictures

  of our wonderful things and we got

  ourselves pint cozies and had a

  wonderful time at the Ben Jerry's

  Factory in Burlington Vermont and we

  still use those pint cozies today which

  but we're not using them now because

  it's a pain to shift them yeah quite

  gross oh yeah they're super gross

  although we will not call them koozies

  no that's illegal New York all right so

  this we kind of now as mentioned earlier

  we've had some trouble grouping these

  into coherent groups this is kind of

  like the the like everything else group

  because we have we have a final group

  that makes more sense so this is kind of

  like the leftovers group we have two

  coffee flavors two chocolate heavy

  flavors and peanut butter cup so we

  figured that we separate yeah we

  separated these because they had fewer

  ingredients and more strong flavors and

  we also wanted to pit the coffee's

  against each other

  and the chocolates against each other so

  yeah I'm gonna start with peanut butter

  cup because it's a different one I'm

  gonna need some water after those we're

  getting us fresh spoons every time for

  every grouping well I mean we're

  professionals here Larry like don't want

  to contaminate flavors or have like a

  you know wet spoon or to warm spoon so

  many factors

  no I don't need your spoon all right

  we're starting with peanut butter has

  strong it's different see peanut butter

  is one of my favorite ice cream

  ingredients there's a whole weight I

  wish you creating a full cup it looks

  there's a full peanut butter cup in here

  like cracked because for like stomach

  control reasons like I'm not eating it I

  already ate that full brownie

  accidentally found its way in I don't

  know at any other time when I mean I

  would go right for that but there's

  lokay it says it says peanut butter cups

  and they literally mean entire peanut

  butter cups yeah and so peanut butter I

  love and Ben and Jerry's has had many

  wonderful peanut butter for actually

  disappointed it seems like what used to

  be called cluster fluff and then was

  renamed to what a cluster that appears

  to be gone and I really missed that was

  so good that was amazing does that hit

  my mark of having the swirl of it was a

  marshmallow and a peanut butter swirl

  through relic if given the choice

  between peanut butter cups buried in the

  ice cream or a peanut butter swirl

  throughout I'll take the swirl every

  time oh yeah you have to take the swirl

  every time especially if it's with

  marshmallow balances it's nice I really

  miss cluster fluff / what the cluster or

  what a cluster and that's a Shana that

  appears to be gone hopefully they'll

  replace it with something good but I

  don't peanut butter cup it's fine it

  tastes like other peanut butter cup ice

  creams yeah I mean it's really similar

  to like the cookies and creams that we

  had last time like yeah it's a good ice

  cream but I don't think it's I would say

  though I think if you like pistachio I

  think this is the same level of goodness

  as the pistachio one if there was

  nothing else that I liked in in a dairy

  case and I wanted to my ice cream I'd

  buy this one I mean I do like peanut

  butter ice cream I used to think that I

  didn't and then Marco started having

  peanut butter ice cream and then I

  started stealing spoonfuls of his peanut

  butter ice cream even though I kept to

  saying that I don't like it even though

  I kept eating it and so now I guess I

  have to officially say that I like

  peanut butter ice cream and again this

  is it's good but I said I very good I

  miss the other one though I miss the one

  with the swirl off that would that was

  way better it was way better sorry Ben &

  Jerry's bring back cluster fluff please

  alright moving on to you think we'll do

  the chocolate ones and then we'll finish

  with some coffee for dessert yeah yeah

  she's out chocolate pretty good sure

  right we have two chocolates here we

  have chocolate therapy and chocolate

  fudge brownie brownie okay it's very

  small to read we got the tiny chocolate

  fudge brownie one yeah chocolate fudge

  brownie okay chocolate therapy has fudge

  swirls putting ice cream and chocolate

  cookies and chocolate fudge brownie has

  chocolate brownies chocolate ice cream

  with fudge brownies yeah so chocolate

  fudge brownie I would say is incredibly

  boring yep

  tastes like chocolate ice cream yeah

  yeah it's like if you want a chocolaty

  Ben and Jerry's flavor you can do better

  than that mm-hmm yep yeah that's fine

  moving on to chocolate therapy so what's

  different about this one therapy has

  three wheels of chocolate pudding ice

  cream are also in there and choc cookies

  instead of chocolate fudge yeah there's

  no brownies in this one just putting in

  chocolate and chocolate and another

  chocolate I would say those are almost

  indistinguishable from each other and I

  don't know why they're two separate

  flavors and they're both very boring to

  me I disagree on principle because I

  feel like I they need to be different

  cuz I really like this company and they

  do wonderful things for the world but

  yeah they pretty much taste the same

  actually yeah let's do a blind taste

  test okay

  no I actually feel like the chocolate

  therapy is a little bit richer and it

  has it does you do taste like the

  chocolate pudding this a little bit more

  let me see oh it's on my pants

  oh gosh key pops away I'll just spoon it

  up it's fine I'm gonna have to change my

  clothes yeah I find no reason to really

  eat either of those unless you just love

  chocolate ice cream yeah I feel like it

  also if you're shopping and you were

  looking for chocolate ice cream

  grabbing either one of these would

  satisfy your craving looking at them the

  chocolate fudge brownie is lighter brown

  color than the chocolate therapy which

  is much darker it tastes the same I

  think the chocolate therapy tastes a

  little bit richer yeah I think having

  that having the chocolate pudding in

  there helps a little bit but it does if

  you're looking for chocolate ice cream

  I would buy the chocolate therapy over

  the chocolate brownie yeah I guess I

  would too but in reality I would buy

  neither of them yeah all right now let's

  move on to the coffee group this this

  includes what used to be called coffee

  heath bar crunch now it's called coffee

  toffee bar crunch and coffee coffee buzz

  buzz buzz we left out the vanilla toffee

  one

  yeah the vanilla what used to be called

  mental heath bar crunch now vanilla

  toffee bar crunch we left that out

  because it we've we've had a lot of

  these before they used to be like our

  go-to flavors and I would say if you

  know if you you could just try one of

  them like I don't think they're that

  different from each other with the

  exception obviously one of them is

  coffee flavored if you like coffee ice

  cream I'm a big fan of the coffee toffee

  bar crunch however as I have gotten more

  into drinking black coffee as I've

  gotten older since I first discovered

  ice cream I actually don't like coffee

  ice cream anymore because it tastes to

  me like coffee with too much milk and

  sugar in it I mean it is coffee and

  sugar in it right it makes total sense

  and the aftertaste lingers in my mouth

  the same way I get like aftertaste if I

  if I ever drink coffee with stuff in it

  okay well one has is coffee with

  chocolate pieces the other is coffee

  with fudge and chocolate no sorry for

  toffee bar toffee and fudge they look

  exactly the same

  so coffee coffee buzz buzz buzz has a

  very nice strength of espresso flavor

  like because the the chocolate bits

  almost taste what they have ground up

  espresso beans in them do they yes this

  is espresso bean fudge that's it so if

  you like that if you like the taste of

  chocolate espresso beans I would say

  that is the ice cream version of that

  almost two years you actually almost get

  a little bit of the grain from the bean

  in the chocolate you do yeah mmm that's

  a really nice detail good touch yeah the

  coffee toffee bar crunch oh my god why

  am i picking up the biggest pieces we

  used to eat a lot of these I would say I

  think they've developed better flavors

  now if you're looking for coffee flavor

  coffee coffee buzz buzz buzz is a better

  one yeah the coffee ice cream and this

  is a little bit mild it's very I'd say

  it's very weak yeah yeah it's much

  weaker and some of the toffee tastes a

  little bit

  honestly I would actually say the coffee

  coffee buzz-buzz it I actually like that

  enough that I might actually have that

  yeah I prefer coffee coffee buzz buzz

  over this coffee toffee bar crunch which

  I thought would have been the opposite

  me too

  but yeah I think now that are they

  actually using heath bar or they make

  their own bars now and they had to take

  the heath name off I'm guessing it's the

  latter that's probably why they change

  the name because I could be totally

  wrong and in a blind taste test I can

  completely fail just like the everything

  they did the big big just like the egg

  bagel situation but I'm feeling like

  that the heath bar one tasted a lot

  better yeah yeah I'm not really into

  that one I'm I think I'm gonna try the

  toffee bar I'm just gonna bite it go for

  it

  yeah it has kind of a weird flavor to it

  you should bite it too

  it actually kind of tastes a little bit

  stale I wonder if this is just not a

  good pint I don't know I think it was

  pretty much always that way I think it's

  similar in consistency and Tony I just

  don't like it anymore I think I might

  not like anymore

  Wow what's happening to us yeah the

  coffee coffee buzz buzz buzz is a much

  better coffee flavor yeah it's like the

  coffee buzz one is it has enough of like

  the savory parts of coffee flavoring

  that I actually enjoy it

  as compared to most coffee

  esterification as I mentioned I find I

  find too sweet and milky this one

  actually balances it pretty well yep I

  agree

  alright final group coming up oh we're

  gonna need some water here some water Oh

  one-way Water Street it's cold man do we

  have enough spoons to keep going

  alright we have the final group here

  which we are lovingly calling the whole

  bunch of crap group these are the ones

  where the description of what is in the

  containers are it barely fits on the top

  of the lid they usually have to wrap it

  to three lines on the bottom and it's oh

  you should call it the description three

  lines or more group this is basically

  the group that can be best described as

  ice cream full of candy and stuff like

  hey it's not it's just like up a whole

  bunch of candy a side of ice cream

  alright you want to read off what we

  have here all right so all right we have

  fish food we have the tonight dough

  every

  but the Chubby Hubby new york super

  fudge chunk and american dream and our

  cone dream oh I'm sorry I couldn't see

  the e from here there's so many ice

  creams alright it was probably a poor

  decision to see these four last cuz I'm

  already pretty full oh this is a bad

  idea we should have we should have

  closed with the simple stuff like palate

  cleansers like I can really go for some

  nice cream this is we made a huge

  mistake alright well I think I need to

  start out with fish food because I'm the

  fish fan of the family even though I

  almost never buy this because again I'm

  not that big of a fan of chocolate ice

  cream what that's pretty chocolatey

  what's that business book where you're

  supposed to eat the eat the frog first

  or something yeah that's that I'm pretty

  sure that's it yeah frog first yeah

  whatever should have we should have

  eaten the fish food first because it's a

  really dense let me see

  alright fish food is chocolate ice cream

  with gooey marshmallows swirls caramel

  swirls and fudge fish which is super fun

  why wouldn't you like I like when

  there's animal shapes in my ice cream

  yeah the fudge fish I would say are the

  highlight of this flavor oh and of

  course marshmallow so BAM you you had me

  at marshmallow but other than that

  though I would say it doesn't do much

  for me I feel like I think this is one

  of those flavors that Ben and Jerry's

  this is a very old flavor I think Ben

  and Jerry's has gotten better more

  sophisticated and they're in their newer

  efforts so along with the coffee toffee

  bar crunch I would say this is kind of

  almost a little bit boring now and I

  don't know maybe maybe if I like

  chocolate ice cream more I would like it

  more but to me the only reason to eat

  this is the fudge fish which are

  delicious but the rest of it doesn't do

  much for me okay I really like this

  because I like the marshmallow and I

  like the caramel swirl I think it's

  really good they have just condensation

  and I like the fun little fish and it's

  fish food like pH like Marco likes and

  tortures everyone with so I'm super into

  this I like it it's a classic flavor it

  reminds me of some original Ben and

  Jerry's good eats and I'm really happy

  with fish food really among their

  classic well known flavors I would say

  one of the one of the ones that holds

  the best is your favorite the sherry

  Garcia

  very well well yeah even though the fish

  is better than Grateful Dead come at me

  because I

  about me I mean I have really good taste

  though but do you have to try the New

  York super fudge chunk next this is

  chocolate ice cream with white and dark

  fudge chunks pecans walnuts and fudge

  colored covered almonds I'm least

  favorite I'm least excited about this

  one because we are not big fans of

  pecans or walnuts so this could be

  interesting but I'm honestly I be

  surprised if I was trying enough of it

  to actually get a big nut chunk here

  I'll try to get one here I mean you have

  to get the nut chunk this whole point of

  this we really should have not eaten

  these last that's just a piece of

  chocolate the round ones are the nuts oh

  here's a piece of another nut oh it's

  just oh there's so much there's so much

  stuff a white chocolate there's white

  chocolate white and dark chocolate fudge

  chunks yeah there's a lot going on in

  there

  I actually do like it I thought I

  wouldn't because of all the nuts I

  actually do like it but I wouldn't

  choose it over other flavors you chew

  this ice cream more than anything

  yes it's very chunky this is a chewing

  ice cream a lot I'm still chewing this

  ice cream what part of it is New York

  I'm still chewing it is it just the fact

  that we eat it in New York or what um

  let's see okay it says it right here on

  the pipe in 1985 to make a name for

  ourselves in New York we picked a New

  York kind of name and wait there's

  freezer burn and created a flavor packed

  with more kinds of chunks than ever

  before we figured if the flavor was

  euphoric in New York it would be

  everywhere oh I'm not feeling so good

  I'm moving on to the tonight dough the

  Jimmy Fallon flavor this is caramel and

  chocolate ice creams with chocolate

  cookie swirls and gobs of chocolate chip

  cookie dough and peanut butter cookie

  dough so this is kind of amazing this

  category is like what can we like

  legally get it like what is the most

  crap you can legally put in a pint of

  ice cream this is like watching one of

  those little tasty videos that are all

  over Instagram and Facebook where they

  just pour in a whole bunch of candy and

  chocolate and mix it around with some

  other chocolate and stuff and then say

  like Tuesday all right tonight dough

  I like it really I I'm not sure again

  it's one of those things like I like it

  I'm not sure I would remember it like

  tomorrow but but I like it it's good

  okay what this has going for it is it

  has instead of vanilla ice cream it does

  have caramel ice cream instead of the

  chocolate ice cream right this week it's

  chocolate and vanilla mm-hmm but you

  don't feel like you're eating like a big

  dollop of like full of caramel and but

  you know like that yeah yeah yeah

  gooeyness so it's still more ice cream

  flavored wait what else is in here

  everything there's there's chocolate and

  peanut butter cookie dough and chocolate

  and vanilla ice cream and gobs of

  chocolate it's okay it has a lot of

  stuff in it but it's not a chewing ice

  cream it's very smooth or blend mm-hmm

  it has more the grainy elements to it

  because of the cookie dough bits but

  it's more dispersed throughout yeah so

  it's much more pleasant to eat than

  something like super fudge chunk so if

  you like to chew your ice cream which I

  don't

  New York super fudge changes for you if

  you like more smooth ice cream with a

  whole bunch of stuff the tonight dough

  is a really good choice oh my god how

  many left three so obviously after doing

  the Jimmy Fallon flavor I think we need

  to do the late-night themed continuation

  and go with the Stephen Colbert flavor

  called Americone dream this is vanilla

  ice cream with fudge covered waffle cone

  pieces and a caramel swirl I'm excited

  about the cone bit

  all right so finally it's not just

  chocolate ice cream pretty much

  something guess lighter I don't know the

  comb bits are good but it's slightly

  soggy like I feel like some of the

  potential of them is a little bit lost

  but overall very good I like that yeah

  that I would say I like the Chilean

  Colbert wins the late-night Wars whoa

  really you know I've never seen either

  show what yes you have we watch clips

  all the time from YouTube clips don't

  count all right I like this I like the

  slightly soggy slightly crunchiness of

  the cone I think it's a really good

  balance it's it's it's not a their stuff

  in it but it's not a heavy to ice cream

  there are pieces but they're small like

  it isn't you don't

  like excavate them out you did like you

  do with some of the big chunks of the

  other flavors I like that yeah that's

  very nice I think I like that more than

  fish food oh no poor fish food well then

  I got to write this down okay

  we're just oh there's so much sticky in

  here okay as you write down I'm going to

  move on okay hey so I'm gonna try now

  the everything but the dot dot and

  flavor so it's arrived as this is a four

  liner it's described as a collision of

  chocolate and vanilla ice creams with

  peanut butter cups fudge-covered toffee

  pieces white chocolate chunks and fudge

  covered almonds it is four lines of

  description yes is a four liner there is

  a I'm actually kind of worried I'm not

  going to get every element in my tasting

  spoon phone charm everything but so I

  guess it should have the most lines of

  content maybe chewiness till tomorrow I

  haven't found anything mine the top

  layers all ice cream you dug it out that

  that is similar in chunkiness to New

  York super fudge chunk oh they're like

  chewing a lot

  I had to excavate and I found it a chunk

  cavern there's a lot going on there it's

  good but I it almost seems like I mean I

  know you know the name like everything

  but the it almost seems like it could

  use some editing like it's hard to like

  focus on any one part of it mm-hmm yeah

  this is definitely for the person that

  can't decide what kind of ice cream they

  want and they just want it all in one

  bite yeah I don't really like it yeah I

  mean it's too much yeah I'm not reading

  yep all right and then the last one that

  we have to try today is Chubby Hubby

  which is ironic as me eating it so I am

  eating my wonderful ice cream here

  Chubby Hubby it is vanilla malta

  flavored ice cream which I tend to like

  with peanutty fudge covered pretzels

  with fudge and peanut butter swirls this

  is one of the few ice creams left in the

  lion that has peanut butter swirl in it

  which I always appreciate let me try go

  try to get a pretzel piece here but

  they're a little hard to get these ice

  creams are looking quite ravaged as we

  try to dig out all the flavors

  to give you the listener and accurate

  representation of what we're actually

  eating here oh my goodness

  see I liked Chubby Hubby a lot but it's

  I wouldn't I'm not sure it makes my top

  four it's really good yeah I agree with

  you I like the I like the peanut butter

  swirl the pretzel the large pretzel

  pieces first off I wish they were

  smaller and and whenever we buy this

  sometimes and whenever I bought it I've

  had very inconsistent results with

  whether the pretzels are crunchy or kind

  of mushy - empty okay yeah good science

  there yeah so like when the pretzels are

  good it's good

  oh they have the crunch level on eight

  yeah yes this is this is a good point

  that we got here eight to nine really I

  do like Chubby Hubby a lot but I'd say

  out of this group honestly I think

  Americone dream out class is it the cow

  on the pint is sitting in a lazy boy

  with a remote and it is it is nice that

  they have that malt flavor ice cream

  even I know you weren't a big fan of

  malt but you can barely taste it with

  all that stuff going on though I've

  tasted quite a bit but it's it's nice to

  have it to have like a difference like

  it isn't just vanilla or chocolate with

  salt in it okay the pretzel is really

  salty oh my goodness I'm the predominant

  flavor in my mouth right now is salt

  spoonful of ice cream well the solution

  you eat more ice cream there we call not

  chunk chubby happy Chubby Hubby sorry

  because the pretzel pieces are so big

  you don't really get them very often so

  it is kind of nice that it's special

  when you do get one but it's it the

  whole rest of the ice cream is kind of

  now my void of them I feel like I might

  as well just dipped a tortilla chip in

  there and makes it like dip can I have

  some water yeah well over it's over

  season all right so that is the end of

  the whole bunch of crap group okay I

  need to take a picture of this and then

  I want to take a moment to deliberate so

  I think you should play a little bit of

  deliberation music which I think should

  be fish

  honestly they have a song about ice

  cream or stomachaches

  be more fun in love in the skyline baby

  I scream snooze

  what I think is the most surprising of

  all of these taste testings with them

  right back to back with each other cuz

  usually when you go out and you buy a

  pint of ice cream you buy one right you

  just kind of like pick the flavor and

  you're happy with it and pitting them up

  against each other I'm really surprised

  how little difference there is between a

  lot of them yeah and again they're all

  good ice creams Markus so don't worry

  who we really do like Ben and Jerry's

  we love them as a company and we like

  all their cool flavors but oh I feel out

  of breath eating all of this ice cream

  and there are chocolate fingerprints all

  over most of our kitchen so sorry about

  that I'm actually having a hard time in

  my deliberations I'm ranking these

  because like if they still made the

  cluster fluff flavor that would be my

  number one no questions but they they

  currently do not make a very good peanut

  butter flavor like they just missing

  from the lineup right now I hope they

  resolved that soon they have a few that

  are okay like peanut butter cup is great

  a for you know for peanut butter ice

  cream lovers like me but it is but the

  other peanut butter like whenever they

  had another peanut butter option it was

  always better than peanut butter comes

  mm-hmm so I am kind of disappointed in

  the lack of that slot being very well

  filled right now I would say the among

  the basic flavors pistachio still stands

  out as a really good one Cherry Garcia

  also still really holds up as adversely

  yeah

  many of the new flavors are excellent

  the cake ones I think the cake group had

  by far the strongest showing this year

  oh yeah I was most I was most excited

  for the cookie group and I was most

  disappointed by them they really let me

  down but the cake the fruit and nuts

  group was uh was really great I liked it

  a lot fruit fruit nuts and cake is that

  what we're calling it something like

  that yeah and Ellie I saw them like the

  red velvet cake

  we would never have bought that if not

  for doing this test and it was one of

  the very last ones we bought we thought

  we're like do we really need that yeah

  we weren't we looked at the list before

  we went to the store and I immediately

  dismissed

  red velvet because I was like you know

  what red velvet cake is a lie so I'm not

  even going to want my ice cream and then

  lo and behold it is delicious because

  you know what it's not just chocolate

  cake in the ice cream like I said before

  it is it's more of like a pink cake

  piece than anything else all right you

  ready to do the rankings you still

  deliberating oh I have some honorable

  mentions yeah I think I'm ready because

  I'm gonna go with my gut in like what my

  classic flavors are that I really like

  in addition to what we've gone through

  tasting and I hope that well I'm sure

  that it's affecting me a little bit and

  how full I feel right now and that I can

  imagine eating some of those really

  heavy ice creams but in general I'm not

  a heavy ice cream person so I think it's

  gonna be okay I I won't make too many

  mistakes in my ranking yeah so as of

  right now this is how we feel about Ben

  & Jerry's ice cream flavors and where

  they stand all right which way do you

  want to go from the bottom as usual okay

  honorable mentions first let's do it

  yeah

  all right honorable mention I'm gonna

  put coffee coffee buzz buzz buzz as my

  main honorable mention that is the very

  first one on my list is honorable

  mention really yeah yeah I really like I

  expect to like it as much as I did yeah

  I really like it has a great coffee

  flavor just like you said it tastes a

  lot like coffee with too much cream and

  sugar but sometimes I really do feel

  like a coffee ice cream especially like

  late in the afternoon if I haven't had

  my afternoon coffee yet a good off

  coffee ice cream feels like a nice

  substitute and also it tastes in my

  opinion it tastes the least like coffee

  with too much milk and sugar and

  compared to any other coffee ice cream

  I've ever had yeah because it has that

  really sharp flavor of the espresso

  beans yeah very strong savory flavor of

  that yes really bounce it out so yeah

  that's my honorable mention in my second

  honorable mention which was a surprise

  can well what's it called when someone

  just sneaks in I'm sure the subscribe to

  them for that yeah sports term for super

  fill-in-the-blank is red velvet for me

  so mm-hmm

  I would also put that up there is really

  good very good and and if not for the

  other cake flavors I might even be on my

  ranked list me too I'm really shocked

  but again I didn't put it on my ranked

  list because it was the first time I've

  had it and I feel like we haven't had a

  gut we haven't had a chance to bond yet

  yeah we need to get we need to get to

  know the red velvet cake better yeah I

  need to finish an entire pint first

  before I I can really put it on my list

  oh yeah definitely I would also say in

  the honorable mentions category for me

  would be Cherry Garcia aye I know you

  like it better than I do but I still do

  really like it I would say it it's

  better than because it's getting them

  this part of the list you know out of 24

  ice creams that we try I would say it is

  better than almost almost all the

  flavors honestly like overall

  and my final honorable mention is

  tonight dough I really like I really

  enjoyed that one yeah it was good it was

  okay I would I would actually say for

  that type of ice cream to kind of like

  blended with like cookies and vanilla in

  it I like milk and cookies better for

  that slot and that's milk cookies is on

  my honorable mention list for that

  reason see I feel like the milk and

  cookies yeah it was better but I feel

  like the tonight dough took those milk

  and cookie ones to another level and

  really amped it up you know a volume

  notch and I think I really like that and

  to me that says very much Ben and

  Jerry's like I'm getting a kind of a

  cookie and cream ice cream experience

  but with that Ben and Jerry twist and I

  feel like the tea the tonight dough

  gives it that extra level of twist that

  beats the other flavors fair enough all

  right all right number four number four

  for me is the American dream I really

  liked it

  for a stuff filled ice cream I thought

  it was very bunch of crap ice cream yeah

  for ice cream full of crap it was pretty

  great it had a nice balance I didn't

  feel like I was just eating gobs of

  things I felt like I could really

  distinguish the flavors and the textures

  from each other and I really enjoyed and

  appreciated that if I would even say we

  might have miscategorized it I thought

  it was going to be a whole bunch of crap

  ice cream but I would say it has roughly

  the same density of stuff in it then as

  things like

  like coffee coffee buzz buzz buzz with

  those fudge chunks or maybe like the the

  heath bar one or peanut butter cup well

  the coffee toffee also had a whole bunch

  of stuff so that's about the same levels

  America as the American dream right

  right right

  all right my number four is pistachio I

  was kind of you know giving her a hard

  time earlier but when I when I come back

  to it on it when I draw these flavors

  together I realize like it is it is

  frustrating how good pistachio is it

  shouldn't be as good as it is pistachio

  is my number three yeah it's like it's

  such a good like clean pure flavor and

  we've tried so many pistachio ice cream

  because they're usually really good and

  it's just a really good implementation

  well a lot of pistachio ice creams are

  died like bright green like a lot of bad

  mint ice creams and I feel like this

  particular pistachio it has a really

  crisp flavor that comes through very

  delicately and nicely it doesn't taste

  like if you have ever had instant

  pistachio pudding where that just tastes

  like a whole bunch of fake pistachio

  flavoring it just I don't know what's

  going on in that but it doesn't really

  taste like what a pistachio tastes like

  when you're eating it this ice cream

  tastes like a pistachio and it has full

  bright green pistachios in it but the

  ice cream itself is just a light it's

  almost morning with ice cream yeah so

  I'd I would say it even areas that it

  has an almost gelato like smoothness of

  the texture yeah it is a very very nice

  pleasant like refreshing ice cream yeah

  so pistachio my number four and your

  number three yeah all right my number

  three is peanut butter cup I say that

  reluctantly though because as I said

  earlier like if I wish they would bring

  back one of their better peanut butter

  flavors or replace them with with

  something you know of that caliber I do

  altima till really love peanut butter

  ice cream and peanut butter cup is a

  really good version of peanut butter ice

  cream I just wish it was cluster fluff

  again yeah I feel like the peanut butter

  cup didn't even make my list because I

  don't like peanut butter ice cream

  enough to ever get to ever buy it for

  myself

  I do enjoy stealing a spoonful or two of

  yours when you're eating it but for you

  oh you always take the big chunks well

  yeah and I was just going to say I

  really don't care for the big chunks of

  peanut butter cups in the ice cream

  because I feel like I'm like even there

  I'll take them I like them no I like

  them but I prefer swirl yeah as opposed

  to like let me chew this piece of ice

  cream yeah agreed

  I agree all right what was the see that

  was my number three yeah I'm gonna do my

  number two

  yeah what's your number two my number

  two is the strawberry cheesecake nice

  which is funny because I normally don't

  really like strawberries that much but

  what cheesecake

  I like cheesecake just fine but it's

  like cheesecake I make a good cheese I

  like cheesecake I oh yeah of course yeah

  it's like red sauce right my sauce you

  don't like other people's thoughts

  I'm so happy you sewed up that way all

  right I mean how else can you say it

  yeah anyway so I'm not a tremendous

  lover of strawberries or cheesecake but

  together in this ice cream it's really

  good and refreshing cuz a lot of times

  for me the reason I don't like a really

  full hearty chocolatey rich ice cream as

  I've mentioned before is I feel like ice

  cream should be refreshing and that's

  how when I eat ice cream I feel like I

  want to be cooled off and I want to be

  refreshed and those heavy flavors just

  don't do it for me so these lighter

  flavors really make me feel refreshed

  and I'm tasting something delicious and

  light and creamy some strawberry

  cheesecake

  great job Ben Jerry my number two is

  Americone dream this is a good thing

  that we're getting a very similar list

  here yeah now you can narrow down your

  shopping list by a lot yeah I mean yeah

  marek own dream is I think I've only had

  it maybe once before if ever cuz I

  always just assumed like it'd be fine

  but I think it would be that great it's

  great like it's it's one of those things

  that it's it is as we said many we're

  talking about like it's it's simpler

  than I thought it would be and it's

  almost deceptively simple but when I

  think about like if for some reason I

  ever wanted to eat ice cream again like

  right now and feeling like I don't but

  if I everyone eating ice cream again

  that is the one I would that is really

  high in the list of what I would go to

  first which is why it's my number two

  look she makes total sense that's pretty

  great because we've never really gotten

  that one before we have it and now we

  will cool along with red velvet I think

  yeah bread cheesecake probably no we've

  gotten strawberry cheesecake we've

  forgotten the red valves right we still

  to bond with it right yeah I feel like

  we do need a bonding session but maybe

  like a week and a half from now yes not

  not today or tomorrow all right you're

  number one it's holding strong Cherry

  Garcia Froyo still love you babe you are

  my fav so yep Cherry Garcia Froyo it is

  always my go-to I let it taste summery

  to me cuz cherries come out in the

  summer it has a little bit of that light

  chocolate it doesn't have the heavy

  cream of regular ice cream it has that

  lighter Froyo flavor and I just love it

  thank you for existing you are my go-to

  you know I will always get a pint of

  this no matter what and I feel like I

  feel the way about that that you feel

  about the peanut butter ice creams which

  is I would never choose Cherry Garcia

  for myself but whenever you have it I

  will I will gladly take a few spoonfuls

  out of your out of your pint when we're

  on the couch together with our points

  when we were doing our research we were

  look we Ben Jerry's on their site has a

  list of like their top ten ice creams

  the most popular selling ones right yeah

  and they did one from like two thousand

  six miles really pleased to see that

  Cherry Garcia the regular one but

  regardless was still up there for a big

  contender in the flavors because I feel

  like a lot of times it's very easily

  overlooked but I am happy to see that a

  lot of people in wherever they you know

  do their demographic testing are it's

  still super into Cherry Garcia so it's

  around to stay and my number one is

  strawberry cheesecake

  hey very surprised but about this I mean

  and and I will mention again to red

  velvet cake and also to the cinnamon bun

  one which I thought was among the same

  quality as these it was just didn't

  quite do it for me the way the other two

  did cinnamon what was a little too spicy

  for me because sometimes I don't I don't

  really those mulling spices they're

  they're a little too harsh on the tongue

  and I enjoyed cinnamon bun as we were

  tasting it but then if I got a really

  heavy cinnamon area

  it was a little too harsh that's fair

  yeah I mean I mean and I mean I'm only

  had the two spoons of it so maybe I will

  cheat my wine later but the strawberry

  cheesecake one I I bought my first pint

  of that and I think my only point so far

  before this a few weeks ago and I'm like

  that and it was like I was kind of like

  settling for it because the flavors that

  I really wanted weren't there and we

  ended up eating so much of that right

  were the very first spoonful I had I was

  like that's interesting and then like

  that was among the other flavors that we

  had in our rotation at the time that one

  was just gone the faster it was the

  first go to pipe like it was gone

  because you have one bite and you're

  like hmm interesting

  I want more of that and then you keep

  going and you keep digging around for

  the gram swirls which I love and again

  grams pearls are a very fast path to my

  heart and hopefully not to do some

  exercise yeah but yeah grams pearls are

  great the the Cheesecake flavor in

  general is great the strawberry is done

  very nicely very subtly overall just a

  great flavor and I would not again I

  would not say it's my number one

  Barringer's flavor I've ever had but it

  is my number one that's currently in

  production I also want to say so in

  terms of Ben and Jerry's here now that

  we've ranked are all of our flavors and

  we've talked extensively about how all

  these things taste when we sit on the

  couch and we enjoy a pint of Ben and

  Jerry's ice cream or really a pint of

  any ice cream which is the quantity in

  which we purchase ice cream of any sort

  any kind of frozen dessert we usually

  purchase it in the pint variety because

  they're nice to hold and sit on the

  couch with it takes us about three tv

  washing sessions to get through a pint

  unless it's a really good flavor that it

  might be two and a half but still that's

  pretty close to three I mean come on any

  right rounding up here I mean yeah I

  think it's it well it depends on who's

  sneaking spoonful from who and who

  brings the ice cream back to the kitchen

  and sneaked spoonfuls when they're in

  the kitchen and who has the better

  flavor yeah but it takes us around three

  sittings to finish a pilot switch it

  feels pretty reasonable I don't think

  it's having about a third of a pint

  which is more than the serving size I

  think but

  by a huge difference I don't think yeah

  yeah because I know pints it seems like

  you

  you

  you'd just devour them really quickly if

  you're not careful and it has happened

  but it takes a lot of self-control to

  make that last three settings yeah but

  you know we do and I'm curious how many

  how long it takes other people to finish

  a pint like if someone is there anyone

  out there who takes like five sittings

  to finish a pint because if so that

  that's I would say enjoy an ice-cream

  enough or maybe they're enjoying it just

  right I don't know there's different

  ways to enjoy ice-cream so that's true

  yeah I just want to put that out there I

  wanted to give everyone our base mine

  consumption rate yeah cuz I feel like

  that that's appropriate we're sounding

  like we you know just pop on out to the

  markets and buy 25 pints of ice cream on

  a normal day what are we gonna do with

  all this we're gonna put some friends

  over yeah we're gonna have an ice-cream

  party we're gonna have two employees and

  I see that we don't go to an ice cream

  social

  where oh yeah of course the serve ice

  cream to everyone that's perfect yeah I

  don't want to have ice cream any time

  soon we could put it out on the curb

  with a little sinuses free oh it looks

  so gross I could take pictures of it it

  would be art too is like like it I had a

  couple of friends who worked in ice

  cream stores in high school and like

  it's the kind of thing like ice cream is

  great when you have it like once every

  so often and not all the time and you're

  not working in it ice cream in mass is

  disgusting like the amount of stuff that

  goes into it that's unhealthy first of

  all and then like you know if you're

  like in an ice-cream shop like the

  you're trashed like having all that like

  melted ice cream in there like it it's

  sticky and it smells bad and it turns

  into B's immediately if it's outside

  like you're just taking out these bags

  of sticky B's like they just smell like

  rotten milk like ice cream is best enjoy

  it's some distance like I would not

  recommend anyone else do these flavor

  tests or work in an ice cream store

  however if you're gonna go buy some ice

  cream before some occasional enjoyment

  these are the best flavors to get yep

  thanks Ben and Jerry
