Peanut Butter World Ice Cream by Ben & Jerry’s – Review

Ben and Jerrys Peanut Butter World Ice Cream

Our tour of the Ben and Jerry’s/Target team-up continues. For the uninitiated, Ben and Jerry’s has a line of four Target-exclusive ice creams that all have a theme of volunteerism. I volunteered to eat and review them, so I too am doing my part. Glad to be of help.

The thing that strikes me about these flavors–of which I’ve sampled all four (the fourth review is forthcoming, no pun intended)–is that they’re all strong, excellent flavors. Better than some of their “regular” flavors. Here we have Peanut Butter World, which describes itself thus: “Milk Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Buttery Swirls & Chocolate Cookie Swirls.” And at first, because I got a really seriously dense vein of peanut butter, I thought it was really peanut buttery. But further exploration (Science!) proved that the balance is actually pretty spot on. In fact, if anything, the chocolate ice cream just feels and tastes like a darker chocolate due to the inclusion of the chocolate cookies. And note: not chocolate chip cookies, but full-on chocolate cookies. And as is normal for Ben and Jerry’s, they’re not stingy with including them. (Pic of the ice cream itself included below the post just to underscore my point about the dark awesomeness of the contents.)
