Rarely does an ice cream show up that ticks all the boxes for us, but WOW! this one sure does! Can you tell we are excited to review it? We’ve reviewed a lot of candy lately, but we want to make sure everyone knows we cover everything related to sugar–and we LOVE ice cream.
The description on the carton says, “Dark Chocolate Mint Ice Cream with Marshmallow Swirls & Chocolate Cookie Swirls.” That is a fancy way of saying that it’s basically Keebler’s Grasshopper Cookies–in ice cream form. If you’ve ever eaten those delicious Keebler Grasshopper cookies, you know exactly how good this ice cream is going to be.
Okay, it’s not all Grasshopper cookie, there’s also some Andes Mint taste along with marshmallow, but if you mixed all that into one ice cream, that would be this one! Ben & Jerry’s always tastes and feels so upscale. Great ingredients, fantastic flavors, and taste. The dark chocolate is rich and tasty and the mint is just a hint, not overpowering, but it lingers, it hides in the background and allows you to enjoy the chocolate, the cookie, the marshmallow. The flavors work so well together we wondered why the rest of the world enjoyed this long before we did in the U.S. Our only complaint was that the cookie was there, but not in a great enough quantity, we would have liked more cookie crunch, but only because the cookie tastes so good with this smooth and rich dark chocolate and mint combination. This one is a clear winner for us, amazing flavors, amazing combo, we highly recommend it!
We picked ours up at Target for $4.99 USD. It is a Target exclusive flavor.
