More ice cream news
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.
