I scream, you scream
we all scream for?


I love ice cream - year round
I may be super sensitive to the cold
and constantly carrying a hot cup of tea or a heat pack

But if you offer me ice cream,
they're dropped at lightning speed.
When I first heard Ben & Jerry were coming to Australia I was super excited and new I had to get my hands on some of their delicious ice cream goodness!
As soon as I located a store near me I was off to get some for myself!
Ben & Jerry are flavour geniuses - in America the range is HUGE!
but here in Australia you can only get a limited number
but they've just added three new flavours to their Pints and Mini Cups range

 The first of the new flavours is Triple Caramel Chunk
Caramel ice cream with a swirl of caramel and fudge covered caramel chunks
AKA: heaven for caramel lovers

The caramel is really rich and buttery soooooooo good 
and the ice cream base is super creamy.

 But fear not! It's not sickeningly sweet like some caramel products


the next flavour is Phish Food
Chocolate ice cream with gooey marshmallow, caramel swirls and chocolate fish
I LOVE the marshmallow in this! It takes ice cream to a whole other level of deliciousness
You get the gooey marshmallow with the crunch of the super cute chocolate fish and the swirls of caramel
You can definitely taste good quality dark chocolate
and the ice cream base is decadently rich - yummmmm

and last but not least, Half Baked
Chocolate and vanilla ice creams mixed with chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough and fudge brownies
There's just something about baked goods and ice cream 
they're a match made in heaven!
and this ice cream is like a combination of Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
and it definitely works!

and yes, I know
I favourited all three - but there's no rule against that, right?
I told you I love ice cream!

While they only have one Scoop Shop at the moment, you can buy the ice cream at selected outlets in Sydney and Melbourne
The pints retail at a RRP of $11.95 

and on a closing note, I must say..
Ben and Jerry, I love you
Oh and I love you too fabulous readers :)
so tell me, 
What would be your dream ice cream flavour?

I think mine would have to involve cheesecake - I'm in the middle of a cheesecake obsession at the moment
and I hope you have a super Sweet Saturday and an awesome weekend!


  1. Thanks for stopping by the blog and for the birthday wish! :)

  2. I love those flavours too! I also really love their delicious strawberry cheesecake flavour too! :)

  3. Ooh I have that one in my freezer and I'm super excited to try it! :)
    I wish they had a lemon cheesecake version though!

  4. Gosh! You were right- I'm just like you! I love ice cream, even in winter, despite the fact that I'm sensitive to the cold =] I've never had ben and jerry's but you make it sound so good!!!

  5. You have to try it! It's soooo good! :)

  6. omg they all have me drooling!! the half baked especially!! wow not the best thing to look at in the morning haha, mmmm need some sugar NOW <3

  7. haha who says you can't have ice cream for breakfast? :P

  8. Love the post.. Ben & Jerry's is a real fave - I agree, there are a lot more flavours here in North America. I love their peanut brittle and mint chocolate cookie.. yummm! :)

  9. Mmmm mint chocolate anything is good in my opinion!

  10. B&J is my absolutely fave! My dream ice cream to be peanut butter :)

  11. so lucky to have b&j stores all over Sydney. i went up there for a Christmas trip and loved it! Melbourne must get one soon!!

  12. I'm sure as the demand increases they'll have more and more outlets - I'm hoping they'll start stocking B&J's in Coles or Woolworths - Wayyyy easier
