REVIEW: Ben & Jerry's Strawberry Not So Shortcake (Walmart Exclusive)


We're slowly tracking down all the limited, exclusive flavors that have taken their sweet time trickling their way into our area. The most recent of which, Ben & Jerry's Strawberry Not So Shortcake, is the latest Walmart exclusive to grace shelves and was released over the summer. This limited batch pint blends together strawberry cake ice cream and strawberries & short bread pieces.


While we've seen Ben & Jerry's use another strawberry cake-style base in Strawberry Cheesecake, this would be our first taste of Strawberry Cake ice cream. Just as expected, this is superior to a standard strawberry base. Sweeter, seemingly creamier, and tastes similar to some of the cake batter bases we've sampled.


The space in between was filled with a high quantity of sizable shortbread pieces, and only a few strawberries, which we were completely okay with considering our disdain for frozen fruit being included in ice cream. The combination of creamy, cake-infused strawberry ice cream mixed with these large chunks of sweet shortbread were better than expected and is definitely worth indulging in if you happen to come across this particular pint.


Where I Found It: Walmart
Grade: B

  1. Wish we were getting this here in Houston. Alas, it apparently isn't coming here due to the last few exclusive flavors not selling well here. Was looking forward to trying it, too :(
