OK, I know you’re probably sick of hearing about more Winter Olympic stuff at this point, but this new limited batch ice cream flavor from our old friends Ben & Jerry is just to good not to blog about! Named for Olympic Snowboarding Gold Medalist Hannah Teter, Ben & Jerry’s Limited Batch: Hannah Teter’s Maple Blondie is kinda magical.
A crazy-good blend of maple ice cream, blonde brownie chunks and a maple caramel swirl, this ice cream is so amazing, you might just try snowboarding for yourself. Seriously, I was on such a sugar high after eating this deliciousness that it’s a good thing there aren’t any halfpipes in Burbank…cuz I woulda snowboarded them. Yep, it’s that good!
And even better than those chewy blonde brownie chunks is the packaging. Aside from the bad-ass image of the Ben & Jerry’s cow riding a snowboard, Vermont-native, Hannah Teter’s sweet, smiling mug is everywhere you look on the packaging and she is a cutie. Whew…talk about Vermont’s Finest!
Anyway, with the Olympics over, this tasty, limited batch ice cream won’t be on store shelves for long, so, get thee to a grocery store and stock up. I know we did!
Just when we thought those lovable nuts at PETA (People for the Ethical Treament of Animals) couldn’t get any weirder, they sent a letter this week to Ben & Jerry’s urging them to replace cow’s milk with human breast milk in all of their ice cream flavors. Yep…I said breast milk, as in, from a nursing mother.
Still don’t believe me? Read the letter for yourself here.
Crazy, huh? I don’t know what kind of breast milk business plan PETA has in mind, but my guess is that this is one flavor even those crazy hippies from Vermont will take a big old pass on.
However, if they do elect to make the switch from cow’s to sweet mother’s milk, I imagine a few thousand of the intimidating-looking breast pumps above will come in mighty handy at the old ice cream factory.
As for me, I think I’ll stick with the Cake Batter Ice Cream for now…
