More ice cream news

Raspberry Summerberries smoothie_ pint

Since summer is almost here, it seems everyone is launching new ice cream flavors. Here are two really refreshing options, from two of my favorite brands. Häagen-Dazs has something called Ice Cream Smoothie Raspberries & Summer Berries (apparently there's a mango-apricot option as well, haven't tried that) which is a really nice mix of ice cream and sorbet, swirled together. I loved this! I wish there would be more flavors though - and especially something citrus-y.


Ben & Jerry's have two new sorbets, swirled with fruit sauce. I tried Jamaican Me Crazy which is pineapple sorbet, pineapple chunks, and passionfruit sauce. I *love* pineapple, so this is right up my alley. It's a little on the sweet side though, and I wish it had slightly more acidity. Their other flavor is Mango-Berry Swirl, and I haven't tried that. Yet. I will.
