New Flavors: Redemption in the Grocery Aisle

My flavor reviews of the Häagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s Classes of 2010 included touches of sadness over two elusive flavors. But the crying has ended for the flavors have been found!

Midnight Cookies and Cream – Hands down the best chocolate ice cream since 2008’s Amazon Valley Dark Chocolate (part of the seemingly defunct Häagen-Dazs Reserve Series
). Dark chocolate ice cream with chewy chocolate cookies, plus a chocolate swirl. Drowning in this would be a pretty good way to go.

Ben & Jerry's Maple Blondie
This flavor embraces two things that Vermont
is proud of (in addition to Ben & Jerry's): maple syrup and gold medal snowboarder Hannah Teter, to whom the flavor is dedicated. A good flavor, but like Dulce Delish is seriously heavy. The flavor reminds me of Häagen-Dazs Sticky Toffee Pudding, especially the bites with blondie in it.

Thank you, ice cream gods, for smiling on me once more.
