Hi everyone! I bet most of you are off to celebrate Father’s Day. We are too… sort of. We have to go to this important association party with my father-in-law. Anyhow, before I go, here’s a quick post about my latest discovery — Ben and Jerry’s Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream.
Whenever I’m in the US, I always find a gazillion things in the supermarket that I want to take home. I swear it’s so much fun grocery shopping there.
During my last trip, this was one of those things I immediately grabbed on first sight… Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream. It was the first time I had ever seen this particular flavor. What’s more, it cost only around US$3 or so. Here in Manila, I’ve only seen Ben and Jerry’s ice cream being sold in Rustan’s Supermarket and it costs around P300+ per pint, which is about more than double that price.
When I opened the pint, it was pink as expected. The package describes it as Red Velvet Cake Batter Ice Cream with Red Velvet Cake Pieces and Cream Cheese Frosting Swirl.
A spoonful of ice cream shows you chunks of Red Velvet Cake. I liked that it was not overly sweet but the cream cheese frosting seemed conspiciously absent. It Ben and Jerry’s Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream would be better with a more pronounced cream cheese taste. My mom and my hubby both liked it though.
In the US, you can buy this at any supermarket. Here in the Philippines, as I’ve mentioned earlier, I’ve only seen a wide range of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream at Rustan’s Supermarket. There’s some in S&R too but there are more flavors and variants at Rustan’s Supermarket.
