Ben & Jerry's Flavors

What are some of your favorites? Just tried banana-rum (banana's foster-like though a bit artificial tasting) and strawberry cheesecake. Both were good. Want to try Dublin Mudslide.

  1. Haven't tried the banana-rum (the idea sounds really good though) or the strawberry cheesecake. Tried the Dublin Mudslide last weekend and (I'll preface this by saying I LOVE almost all of Ben & Jerry's flavors) I was not that impressed -- it was artificial tasting and just kinda blah.

    Big fan of Chunky Monkey, Chubby Hubby, One Sweet Whirled.

    I have Vermonty Python in the freezer right now which I haven't tried yet. . .

    1. I am one who desperately misses both Festivus during the holidays and Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz. In the past few years, I have found all their products to be way too sweet for me. I was really disappointed that the Black & Tan didn't really taste *like* beer which I had hoped it would, at least a little...

        I agree, their flavors are REALLY sweet. I've found my favorite ice cream (from grocery) is Ciao Bella...I love Il Laborattorio (sp?) but they don't carry them around here.

          I always boycotted Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz because it replaced my favorite Cappucino Chocolate Chunk. I don't like hunks of fudge which is what you find in a lot of flavors. They told me they discontinued it because they couldn't package it in pints because of the chunks. After seeing their other flavors, that explanation always seemed fishy to me.

            I LOVED Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz! I had to have the container taken out of my hands, or I'd eat the whole thing.

              Right there with you on the prying it out of my hands bit. I also miss one of the originals, Rainforest Crunch. Nuts and Caramel and Vanilla ice cream. I wish they'd do more vanilla based flavors.

              I was disappointed in the Black and Tan too. The flavor was so faint. I guess it was put in for the novelty, as I've heard about garlic ice cream (not a B&J flavor) at festivals. (Never tried it though)

              1. re: Carrie 218

                Those were my two favorites as well! I also miss Holy Cannoli. I hate all the current flavors. I haven't bought Ben & Jerry's in years. They should bring back a bunch of the old awesome flavors instead of making up new bizarre stupid flavors that don't taste good.

                I just remembered, the Ben and Jerry's stores often have Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz.

              2. Marsha Marsha Marshmallow, Phish Food, and Oatmeal Cookie Chunk

                1. Chubby Hubby and Oatmeal cookie. I find Dublin Mudslide too rich/sweet.
