Ben & Jerry's recently sent Scoopalicious their three new flavors; Peanut-Buttah, Boom Chololatta and Spectacular Speculoos. These new flavors were a complete surprise to me but I don't know why I hadn't considered that Cookie Cores might be the next best thing in ice cream! The Flavor Gurus who create Ben & Jerry's flavors are always coming up with new ideas but I think the Cookie Cores are an ingenious and delicious new creation!
Peter Lind is the Flavor Guru resonsible for bringing the world these new Cookie Core flavors. I had the opporttunity to meet Peter when Ben & Jerry's invited me up to Vermont last year and to me, he's pretty much a rock star. How many people get to create one of a kind ice cream flavors and then share them with the world?!
On to the Cookie Core flavors before I share a special interview!
The three new flavors are:
Boom Chocolatta! Cookie Core: Mocha & Caramel Ice Creams with Chocolate Cookies, Fudge Flakes & a ChocolateCookie Core.
Peanut Buttah Cookie Core: Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Crunchy Peanut Butter Sugar Bits, Peanut Butter Cookies & a Peanut Butter Cookie Core
Spectacular Speculoos Cookie Core: Dark Caramel & Vanilla Ice Cream with Speculoos Cookies & Speculoos CookieButter Core
I really liked all of the flavors but I have to say that there was something about the Spectalular Speculoos that I particularly loved. I didn't even know what Speculous cookies were! The belgian butter cookies give an original, crunchy and delicious flavor to the spectacular cookie core. The caramel, vanilla, cookies and the cookie butter core are a delicious meld of flavors.
Everyone that I shared these flavors with were gushing about the Peanut Buttah Cookie Core and the Boom Choccolatta Cookie Core. The cores are easy to dig in to and remind you of being able to eat cookie dough off a spoon before you bake them! They just happen to be surrounded by a meld of rich and creamy ice cream!
I shared the cookie core flavors with my freind's Tracy and Scott's five year old son Nathan and he asked that I interview him to get his opinion on ice cream and the cookie cores! Enjoy this insightful video while trying one of the three new Cookie core flavors!!!
