A few months ago Ben & Jerry’s-Israel asked their Facebook fans which of 5 specific flavors; that had been off the local market, should be reintroduced. Peanut Butter Cup won with 35% of the vote. Creme Brulee got 23%, Cherry Garcia 16%, Banana Split 15% and Oatmeal Cookie got 11% of the vote.
I was happy that Peanut Butter Cup “won”. I really love peanut butter cups and, as I think I mentioned in my review of Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby ice cream, I really enjoy the combo of sweet and slightly salty flavors so adding chocolate covered peanut butter to an ice cream is a real win-win in my book.
I don’t know how long it’s been since Ben & Jerry’s removed Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream from Israeli store freezers but I personally never tasted it. Either it was before I moved here and I never noticed this ice cream flavor in the USA or I was already here in Israel but somehow missed it in my local stores. All in all, somehow I never tasted this ice cream and was thrilled to now have the opportunity to try it.
Since a) there are many English reviews for this Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream online where you can read all the details and b) many of you might have tasted this flavor in the past, I won’t go into much detail. I will just give you my bottom line and not write a full review.
(here are just 3 random reviews I found with a quick Goggle search)
Bottom Line: I really enjoyed this Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream. I like that they kept this ice cream sort of “simple”. It’s not one of Ben & Jerry’s overly elaborate flavors so you really taste the peanut butter in the ice cream. I like that! Sometimes I think they go a little too far and the different flavors get lost in the abundance. Here, on the other hand, you get exactly what you expect; delicious & rich peanut butter flavored ice cream with fairly big chunks of chocolate covered peanut butter cups. No, they’re not Reece’s (these are all natural and Reece’s are not). I enjoyed them, once they melted a drop in my mouth, and I could taste the chocolate coating and the filling. I was happy that they were generous with the size and amount of the peanut butter cup pieces they scattered throughout the ice cream.
So if you’ve been missing this flavor or, like me you never tried it but you enjoy peanut butter cups now’s the time to pick up a pint of this Ben & Jerry’s ice cream because I don’t know if this will be a permanent flavor or just a passing treat.
