I have to Share

It is an established fact that I love the raspberry - chocolate combination. Today I found a great new way to satisfy this love. Behold, Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies ice cream from Ben and Jerry's. I am not so naive that I don't know what the Magic Brownies name implies - I thought it was just a cute little play on words. Now I am not so sure - because this ice cream is truly magical. I'm just speculating here - but there may be some illegal substance in here that makes me want to eat the whole carton.

They don't have a link to it or a picture of it on the B & J web site so I will tell you that it is black raspberry ice cream swirled with sweet cream ice cream and fudgy brownies - and it is to die for. The raspberry ice cream is great, the sweet cream swirl is just that - sweet! and the brownies are crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside.

Alan and I went to Vermont about 4 years ago and were tempted to take the tour of the factory but there were 8 buses of Japanese tourists pulling up at the same time. To be honest, I don't agree with Ben & Jerry's politics but I was totally going for the free ice cream. I am recommending this flavor and it is on sale at Bashas right now. I wish the magic brownies could have no calories. Now that would be true magic.

By the way - that ice cream sounds glorious!

Our YWIE is next Wednesday. They are doing a scaled down Ten Virgins musical - the YW leaders and 2 moms (me and another gal) are the virgins. I have been cast as one of the unprepared virgins - I told the girl in charge that I didn't appreciate being typecast - as a naughty virgin - haha (now let's see if your blog still rates a G rating after the naughty virgin reference hehe)

I'll try it asap. It might be better topped with wheat sprouts. My favorite so far is Karamel Sutra.
