Freezer Finds: Cotton Candy, Ben & Jerry's Latest Walmart Exclusive


One of our readers recently stumbled upon the latest collaboration between Ben & Jerry's and Walmart. Cotton Candy consists of cotton candy ice cream loaded with candy sprinkles. Although my initial reaction was not excitement, I'll probably check it out anyways after what they were able to do with Pina Colada.


After tasting this he said, "It's pretty much vanilla ice cream with sugar pieces in it...On the pint it says cotton candy flavored ice cream, but unless I'm off today it's vanilla to me...The cotton candy pieces are definitely like nerds just not sour...Just really sweet candy pieces. Give it a try, but definitely not a re-scoop for me."

  1. Cotton candy vodka, cookies and cookie frosting, now this? Curse my soft spot for such flavor!

    1. I can't say I'm usually a fan of artificial cotton candy. Hopefully this can change my mind.

  2. the best part of the cotton candy is the fluffy texture of it, and apparently B&J left that out!!

    1. Agreed. That would have been interesting to see them incorporate some type of actual cotton candy pieces in this one.

    2. The candy sprinkles pretty much are cotton candy pieces, honestly it's delicious!

    3. Plus I'm pretty sure they tried to make it fluffier but since the ice cream is realistically a liquid the cotton candy got wet from it during the mixing. It probably condensed and hardened from being frozen. If you freeze cotton candy it gets wet when it thaws, ice and cotton candy just will not mix well.

    4. Yeah, the candy sprinkles make up for the missing light and fluffy feel. Actual cotton candy would have been very difficult to keep in its original form.
