REVIEW: Ben & Jerry's The Tonight Dough


Ben & Jerry are no strangers to working with celebrities in creating new and creative flavors. But now Jimmy Fallon's face has made its way on to two different pints of ice cream. The recently retired Late Night Snack, which enjoyed a nice run, brought together vanilla bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl and fudge-covered potato chip clusters. Now, at the helm of The Tonight Show, Fallon graces ice cream lovers with another killer creation dubbed The Tonight Dough.


The description on the front of this Fairtrade flavor reads caramel & chocolate ice creams with chocolate cookie swirls & gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough & peanut butter cookie dough. None of the components featured here are new to Ben & Jerry's brand followers as we've seen them all in other flavors, but this particular arrangement should be particularly effective. The first layer lays out what much of the rest of the pint would look like, which is a nice blend of both bases and a large concentration of cookie dough bites; both chocolate chip and peanut butter.


While enjoying chocolate chip as well as peanut butter cookie doughs with ice cream are enough to keep any ice cream enthusiast occupied, my personal favorite aspect of this pint is the chocolate cookie swirl. It adds another element of chocolate and a crunchy texture to contrast against the soft cookie dough and smooth ice cream. We enjoyed Late Night Snack, but The Tonight Dough is even better.

  1. In complete agreement about the chocolate cookie swirl. It just brings the whole thing together.
