REVIEW: Ben & Jerry's Cake My Day


Any new release from Ben & Jerry's is usually reason to head to the supermarket in search, so naturally we were excited to see this latest limited batch flavor: Cake My Day. The fact that this most recent creation involves a cake batter component gave us all the more reason to track this pint down. The official description reads, "vanilla cake batter ice cream with vanilla cake pieces, buttercream frosting & raspberry swirls."


All the cake batter themed flavors we've had from Vermont's Finest prior to this were rather impressive, but the fact that this features a vanilla cake base, perhaps our personal favorite, bodes well. Once the top is removed, we get our first view of the off-white base, small voilet-colored swirls, and a piece of the vanilla cake poking through the top. Consistency is never an issue with Ben & Jerry's and this is no exception as our spoon struggles to cut through the thick ice cream right from the start.


As we moved onto the actual taste portion of our review, the vanilla cake batter ice cream was even better than we expected. Not only did it possess a super-premium feel, but the overly sweetened taste nailed it's intended target. The raspberry swirls and concentrations of buttercream frosting built upon the base by adding hints of sweetened fruit and buttery icing. The actual pieces of vanilla cake were the highlight of Cake My Day and pushed this over the edge into A territory. They were abundant, had an excellent chewy texture, and worked perfectly with the other ingredients.
