"Rocky Road-ish" or "Life These Days"

~ no expensive textbooks were harmed in the making of this photo~

Hello Blogosphere it is I, your dear old friend/freshly minted culinary student/Kermit the frog!
Things have been a bit congested on my to-do list lately but, as usual I have my priorities straight and there is a brand new Ben and Jerry's flavor that we NEED TO TALK ABOUT. It's called Rocky Road-ish and it is a delight!

~Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream with a Toasted Marshmallow Swirl & Fudge Covered Almonds~
It starts out like your basic Rocky Road ice cream,  savory-sweet chocolate covered almonds (my favorite!), marshmallow swirl, buuut it takes a little turn and swaps out the chocolate ice cream for marshmallow. It was a strange surprise. I'm not one to reach for much over chocolate but this was one keen decision the boys made. It tickles the mind grapes in this tantalizing way so that even though you're expecting chocolate ice cream, and you still sort of want it, the fact that it keeps being absent with every bite you take is kind of fabulous. It's like tantric eating.

Yeah, I went there.

What makes the experience feel even more scandalous is chowing down on pints of Rocky Road-ish in-between classes about potion sizes, well balanced meals, and how many teaspoons of sugar it takes to kill a person (or something like that). It's enough to make you want to close the door and put on some slow jams.

Well done boys. Very well done.


  1. mmmm that ice cream souds divine!

    Trying to learn about health and portion sizes while eating this ice cream is just about as bad when I sit down to watch the Biggest Loser with an Ice Cream Sundae :-)

  2. Great review. Just tried it for the first time today and it's better than I had even hoped. I was skeptical about how they'd capture the *toasted* component of "toasted marshmallow" flavored ice cream, but they did it well--sort of like a burnt caramel flavor. Hope this limited edition won't be too short lived!
