Well after reading the countless number of A-rated reviews for Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Jam Session, I knew this was a pint on the horizon. The only problem was my local Target did not have it on their order sheet until I ran into a manager in the freezer department and they ordered it the following week.
Upon cracking the lid, as many others have stated, you see the divine swirls of raspberry and the chunky peanut butter (which is swirled into a peanut butter base) which composes the Peanut Butter Jam Session pint. Overall, the peanut butter base is very similar to what you would have in What a Cluster. This true peanut butter base is not overpowering. It's not as strong as the peanut butter ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery, but it does give a great, lasting flavoring on the way down. Now, as I got to dig into my first bite or two, I started to really see the swirls pick up.
Just like any pint, you usually strike gold once. You break the initial layer and start digging your way into the heart of the pint and that is what you get. The swirls are so reminiscent of a true peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Literally identical. The raspberry is not overpowering or sweet. It has a very refreshing taste and the chunky peanut butter swirl reminds me of Peanut Butter Pie from Haagen Dazs and the massive amount of peanut butter chunks it contains. Swirl all of these together in a peanut butter base and you have peanut butter sandwich on peanut butter bread with peanut butter filling and raspberry jam.
I have to agree with mostly every other review I have read as Ben & Jerry's has a keeper in this Target exclusive, if not the best out of all 6 they have made in all. I would have to put this close to Peanut Butter World with the massive amount of flavoring this pint brought to the table. If you were a sucker, or still are a sucker for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, look no further. You have this in ice cream form and can pick up a pint at your local Target to bring back your childhood memories.
