Ok, whoever has never had a Ben and Jerry’s addiction raise your hands. Those with your hands raised, get out of here. I have no idea what kind of cruel species you are.
I used to live for the days when Publix had Buy One Get One Free sales for Ben and Jerry’s pints. That’s a ton of savings, y’all.
It was also the excuse to buy those wildcard flavors that could either be amazing or awful- you never knew which. Ben and Jerry’s sure knows how to make some home run flavors- just as much as they can make some flavors which should have never seen the light of day.
Top 3 fav flavors: Everything But The… (back when they gave more than one miniscule piece of heath bar per pint), Half Baked (during my gluten days), and of course: Phish Food.
Chunky Monkey never made it onto my list because it was SO overly sweet. Sure, those other flavors were probably just as sweet grams-wise, but at least there were other flavors/textures instead of the monotony of banana-ey sweet on top of more banana-ey sweetness.
Now that I’m having a romantic tryst with my new ice cream maker, the ingredients that make up paleo Chunky Monkey just “make sense’. Seriously, what’’s not to love about banana ice cream with gobs of dark chocolate covered walnuts?
I’m happy to report that I can eat this entire batch of ice cream without any adverse side-effects. No abdominal cramping, acne breakouts from sugar, rosacea flare-ups from dairy, and I get to sleep soundly at night knowing I didn’t binge out on those man-whores, Ben & Jerry.
God I love the primal life.
