Review: Ben & Jerry's - Half Baked Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry's Half Baked is so named because it's half baked fudge brownies and half chocolate chip cookie dough.  It's also half vanilla and half chocolate ice cream. (Wait... that doesn't add up...)  Actually, it seems more like 3/4th chocolate and 1/4 vanilla to me.  With Free Cone Day coming up next Tuesday, I have been furiously stuffing my face with only the best Ben & Jerry's pints to review.  I bought this pint at Fresh & Easy for $2.99 regular price.

So how is it?  In a word?  Decadent!  Imagine gooey fudge brownies and crumbly frozen chocolate chip cookie dough nestled in creamy chocolate ice cream with a touch of vanilla and you have Ben & Jerry's Half Baked.  It might be too rich for some but it's some definite good eats!

Honestly, all the flavors I've tried have been really good!  You really can't go wrong with any of them.  I guess it all comes down to personal preference.  And for the glutton in you, it's a good thing you can wait in line as many times as you want on Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day!


  1. Half-baked has been my favorite Ben & Jerry's flavor since it was released. I've tried other ones that come close but if I had to choose this would still be the winner for me. I have heard some really good things about their new Milk & Cookies flavor though.

    DISGUSTINGLY DRIED OUT! Above must be very young or drunk-I had someone else sample it, yesch...Turned out date on bottom was JUly 2011 expiration, so I took it back to Walgreen's ,  was on sale price for $2.99-she REFUSED to give me back my money, I found 2 more expired pints in freezer but did find M NOV 2013 pint, brought home, threw in freezer in disgust-bad enough 1st time, why a 2nd time? Our company tonight in their 30's tried it, she said it's vulgar, threw in my trashcan so there you have it, over 30 crowd and over 40 crowd HATE IT and Walgreen's will do nothing, waste of $3.20!!  She said, too, all dried out, noi ice cream so Half baked ice cre

    am, maybe this batch was thawed out down here in Florida, refrozen as 2 of us, no good? Walgreen's said no refund-w

  3. You must have got a terrible batch down there. I agree with the review and the comment above you, this stuff is the best.

  4. Had this the other day. Was pretty good for processed store bought icecream. 

  5. 9-14-12. Last night, I bought a 16-oz (small) container of Ben & Jerry's Half Baked ice cream (with cookie dough) at an Arco Station. Within 30 minutes of eating it, I began to violently throw up--all night long. Perhaps E-Coli? I can't even keep water down without gettting the dry heaves. No way would I EVER try this again. I had big plans for today and now I feel dehydrated and like I was hit by a truck.

  6. I'm over 30 and this is my favorite ben and jerrys ice cream (half baked). Maybe your batch from that walgreens was bad...because I've never had a bad bite of this ice cream...but yes, it is LOADED with huge chunks of cookie dough and brownie...but for me that's the best part.
