New flavor from Ben & Jerry
This week is all about yummy stuff, as you can see. Today, I recieved an advance sample of Ben & Jerry's new flavor here in Sweden: Chocolate Macadamia. I got an e-mail from one of my favorite PR contacts, who said it was due to launch next week. The craving hit immediately, so when she offered to send me some... well, it was a done deal.
And I have to say, this might be one of my favorite flavors ever from B&J! (I also really like Cherry Garcia and Chunky Monkey, but they tend to be a little bit gritty... and I don't like the fake "chocolatey pieces" that much.) I normally don't go for chocolate ice cream, but this one has chocolate and vanilla swirled together which makes the chocolate a lot less intense, and much smoother and softer. And then it has chocolate-covered macadamias. And this is just yummy beyond belief. I really love macadamias - they're so tender and flaky, due to their outrageously high fat content. The chocolate these are covered in - well, it doesn't seem to be straight up chocolate, it's more melting and a little bit salty, but I don't complain at all. It's delicious.
