When it comes to ice cream innovation, Ben & Jerry's is always pushing the envelope, and that's a good thing. My wife personally hates her ice cream loaded with tons of stuff and she's entitled to her opinion but at the end of the day I feel for her because it's tough being so wrong.
I mean, the brand is notorious for coming up with creative, almost gratuitous amounts of fixins' in their flavors, so what would anybody expect from them whenever they're buying a pint of their Vermont-crafted deliciousness.
And they're even willing to implement structural changes to their products, like by putting a solid core of caramel or brownie batter right smack dab in the middle of their pints, which is a personal favorite of mine. I don't think there's a single pint of their ice cream I don't like, unless there's mint and chocolate involved. That's where I draw the line because it's not like I'm living in a nursing home just yet.
But they've went and done it again. This time, by topping their delicious ice cream with a layer of fondant you have to crack through to get to all the dessert goodness that lies beneath.
The "Topped" pints of ice cream debuted in London in three different flavors: Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough, Strawberry Swirled, and Salted Caramel Brownie. The goodness doesn't just stop at the top, however, as the yummy ice cream is filled with the Vermont creamery's trademark abundance of goodies.
Strawberry Swirled, for instance, contains milk nuggets, shortbread cookie chunks, swirled marshmallow and strawberry sauces, and is covered by a layer of white chocolate fondant.
As of now, "Topped" pints are only available in the UK, but they should come to America eventually, just like the "Cores" did two years after initially launching in Europe. Hopefully we won't have to wait that long for this special goodness to come stateside.
