The Best Ice Cream of the Summer
Ice cream is good all year round but with the gorgeous hot summer we’ve had it’s been the pudding and snack of choice. I love ice cream and love trying new flavours. This year Ben & Jerry’s have bought a host of new ice cream flavours and these three were my favourite. I of course tried all I could to pick my favourites and it was a very hard job but someone has to do it.
In the last year I have really discovered how much I love peanut butter and this is why I had to try it in ice cream. I needed to know what it would taste like and how it would work. It was amazing. The peanut butter ice cream with Reese’s Pieces cups in was a treat. Oddly, and against what I would have thought, it tastes brilliantly with fresh strawberries.
I like Greek Yoghurt so I was very curious to see how that had been turned into ice cream but also with a strawberry cheesecake flavour. The strawberry swirl for the strawberries was intense and really good. The cheesecake biscuit bit was good too. I was worried that biscuits would have gone a bit soggy in the ice cream but they hadn’t. Yum.
I’ve tried to take a few photos of the ice cream in bowls but as soon as it’s served it’s gone. Even I was too excited to not eat it and remember photograph it.
The Peanut Butter Me Up flavour was peanut butter and jelly and I know it’s a famous sandwich filling in the USA but I had never tried the flavour combo. It is odd but lovely. The tub of this didn’t last long at all.
To try all the flavours we played ice cream roulette. It is as fun as it sounds. I put loads of scoops of all the ice creams we had on to a plate with no labels and we all tucked in. It was a lot of fun and luckily all the flavours were good so there wasn’t anything shocking to find.
Even though it’s getting colder the ice cream isn’t going anywhere!
