I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream. Maybe that's why businesses like B&J or Baskin Robbins are still around & I'm thankful for that. I can't imagine what Summer would be like without something as refreshing & soothing as a scoop from Ben & Jerry's.
Whether you are talking about visiting their store or simply grabbing a pint from your local food mart, this stuff is addictive & you won't be able to stop eating it nor are you likely to share it with your family or friends. Well, I guess that just depends on how nice you would like to be. I, personally, would rather have my own pint when I'm ready to indulge in something not too sinful but I'd probably buy one for whomever just so happens to be around me at the time as well. You see, it's Summer & that's just not the time to be greedy.
Chunky Monkey is a classic just like mom's apple pie. At some point, everyone should've had this treat & you will probably get blank stares from everyone if you pretend to be ignorant. If you seriously have never tried this best-selling flavor or any other Ben & Jerry's ice cream, then what in God's name are you waiting for? You simply need to take out time from your busy schedule & treat yourself to one of my life's finest pleasures.
For those of you who don't know about the flavor, I envy you in some respects. You don't have the addiction which means you're safe temporarily. Chunky Monkey is a banana flavored ice cream loaded with chocolate & walnuts. Trust me, they do not skimp on the walnuts or chocolate pieces at all so each spoonful is chocked with both. I also have to tell you this is the best banana flavored ice cream I've ever tasted. So many ice creams out there claim to be flavored with bananas but simply taste fake or even a bit unpleasant. Needless to say, this is one of richest & smoothest ice creams that I've ever had the pleasure of trying.
The walnuts here are a nice touch. I am not usually a big fan walnut fan per se but they are flavorful & actually do compliment the banana flavor as well as the chocolate chunks. Thankfully, the chocolate & the walnuts are separate so you have the distinct experience of enjoying them both which may be uncharacteristic of most ice creams. Uusually, we are subjected to chocolate covered nuts in most sub-standard ice creams which is kinda boring & certainly overutilized. Pretty spiffy, eh?
The chocolate chunks were also somewhat of a specialty here. They are huge! In fact, the size of each chocolate chunk is almost as big as an Andes candy piece. I'm serious!! While not quite semi-sweet, they are just bursting with flavor although this does not take anything away from the sweet banana taste nor the fresh walnuts. Again, this was yet another nice touch from the guys who know how to make some serious ice cream with their playful inventions.
Ok, enough said. You either know what I'm talking about or you don't. If you aren't familiar, I certainly hope you intend to take action very soon. Find your local store or visit the supermarket & just don't get caught strung out in the freezer. Bon Appetit!
