Pregnant mama in search of chocolate-based peanut butter ice cream
Hi chowhound experts - I am pregnant and trying to find chocolate-based peanut butter cup ice cream to fix a craving. My friend suggested I post here - would really welcome suggestions. Work in Cambridge, live in Needham and will to drive wherever!
Crescent Ridge sells this, it's a chocolate ice cream with ribbons of peanut butter fudge. We get it through home delivery but they also sell it at their stand in Sharon. http://www.crescentridge.com/dairy_ba... (although our current obsession is their Graham Central Station flavor, which is graham cracker ice cream with these chocolate honeycomb bits. S'mores in a cup!)
Cambridge is an area they deliver to, not that you'd want to commit to something like this just for ice cream but especially with a little one on the way, you might be interested in home delivery as a way to make life easier. They deliver all the standard dairy stuff but also frozen meats, breads, pizzas, prepared meals, and even have a veggie CSA. Their lemonade is particularly nice.
Bedford Farms also always had Muddy River - chocolate base with swirls of peanut butter. I got it in Concord, but I'd guess they have it in Bedford as well.
This sounds like a good flavor. Not a quick way to satisfy your craving, but it might be interesting to see if Toscanini's or Christina's would make it for you.
Can we clarify: are you specifically looking for chocolate ice cream with peanut-butter *cups*, or would ribbons or chunks of peanut butter do the trick as well? (For example, my fiancee is VERY specific about only liking cups and chunks; ribbons don't work for her at all.)
Christina's in Inman sometimes has one with peanut-butter chunks; not sure I've seen one with cups.
Another option would be looking at somewhere that does mix-ins (would that I could still direct you to Herrell's, sigh) so you could add exactly what you want to exactly the flavour you want. I wouldn't normally suggest Cold Rock, but that kind of thing might be a good short-term solution while you look for a better option.
