REVIEW: Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Half Baked (Limited Batch)


Just a short time after tracking down some of the Core flavors, we ran across a pint that we were afraid we'd miss out on. The Ben & Jerry's limited batch creation seen above is a slightly altered version of their best-selling classic, Half Baked. The vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookie dough has been replaced with peanut butter ice cream and peanut butter cookie dough to produce Peanut Butter Half Baked.


The first layer shares the same muddled look of the standard Half Baked flavor, with little distinction between the two separate bases. Fortunately for the consumer, peanut butter and chocolate are familiar friends to our taste buds. Ben & Jerry's peanut butter ice cream is already one we enjoy, but with a chocolate twist, gobs of peanut butter cookie dough, and big Greyston Bakery brownies, this one shoots up our rankings list.


While the balls of peanut butter cookie dough are soft, flavorful and round out the peanut butter theme, but they simply can't compete with the famous brownies from Greyston Bakery. These chewy squares of fudge bliss pair perfectly with the peanut butter base, the chocolate base, or both. If you're a fan of peanut butter, picking up this limited batch pint before it disappears is a must.

  1. Hi! I just discovered you, and, I absolutely love your job. I'm trying to follow the site (I see it's powered by Blogger) but there seems to be no mechanism to do so. I attempted to add it manually, but the newest post it shows is 7 months ago. Could you let me know the direct blogger address so I could use it to subscribe?
