I know it’s been a while since we posted anything new in our “eat” category — I guess you could say the steady diet of McCain campaign lies has been keeping us both pretty full up! — but lest you think we’d stopped blogging about food entirely, here is a new ice cream flavor for the ages, amigos!
As you know, we loves us some ice cream, and though I remain a steadfast Baskin Robbins devotee, Ben & Jerry’s has been churning out some pretty rocking new flavors this year, and their 30th Anniversary Cake Batter Ice Cream is another home run from the hippies in Vermont!
The concept here is very simple: yellow cake ice cream with chocolate frosting swirled in for good measure. Baskin Robbins had a similar flavor a couple years back with actual chunks of cake in the mix, but this is much less, well…lumpy.
It tastes exactly like that first wonderful beater you mom let you lick clean when she was making your cake as a kid, except, you know…colder!
And the addition of the chocolate frosting swirl gives the whole thing a warm and fuzzy birthday cake flavor that will leave you jonesing to lick the frosting off the freshly-blown-out candles. Seriously, the memories will flow with every bite.
And though I was tempted to eat this shit on a beater, I think a spoon is much more practical in the long run…
Here’s to another 30 years of Ben & Jerry’s deliciousness!

This was/is one of those CANNOT BE IN HOUSE b/c is is TOO GOOD.
Will thought is was just “eh.” In that it took him two days to finish the pint, as opposed to the normal one.
Ha! I agree…we have not bought it since for that exact same reason. Ice cream that good doesn’t last very long in this house! 🙂
I am stopping on the way home tonite to get some of that! With the day I’ve had I will most likely eat the entire thing myself!!
I love cookie dough ice cream, so it only makes sense that I will like cake batter ice cream. I’ll give it a try one of these days.
