Big discovery this evening!
The BEST cake batter ice cream I’ve ever had.
To me, nearly every cake batter flavored ice cream or frozen yogurt I’ve previously tried had a certain taste. It’s like all of the ice cream and fro yo people came together and made one pseudo cake batter flavor that they all then reproduced and sold. Sure these “cake batter imposters” are decent, but they never actually reminded me of true cake batter flavor.
Then the reliable Ben & Jerry’s stepped up to the plate and delivered. They delivered BIG.
Okay, so I must preface this review by saying I love boxed cake mix. I think the batter from a boxed cake mix tastes like heaven and that’s exactly what this ice cream tastes like. Boxed cake mix and chocolate frosting from a tub.
The good news? It’s all-natural with totally recognizable ingredients. Does this make it healthy? No. Delicious? Yes.
Ryan and I agree that this ice cream flavor is deserving of some serious praise. It still doesn’t top our highly elusive, all-time favorite Ben &Jerry’s flavor, but it is fantastic.
We managed to wait until after dinner to dig into that pint, but I had to blog about it first because I was quite excited.
Dinner tonight was another hotel freebie meal.
Teriyaki chicken with rice, green beans and mini egg rolls.
The egg rolls and teriyaki sauce were good but I just couldn’t choke down the green beans. They were clearly canned and I’m a bit of a green bean snob and need ‘em fresh. The texture of canned green beans give me the heebie jeebies.
Kind of like Ryan from The Bachelorette.
And speaking of The Bachelorette, the finale is on TONIGHT and I am pumped!
