Frozen Friday: Ben & Jerry's - Rockin' Blondies Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry's Rockin' Blondies ice cream is exclusive to Target and features buttery brown sugar ice cream with blonde brownies (AKA "Blondies") and butterscotch toffee flakes.

I picked up a pint on sale for $3.

If you've never heard of a blondie before, it's basically a brownie but with brown sugar instead of chocolate (to which the chocolate lovers scratch their heads and think "why?!").

Unlike the wonderful brownies in Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream, the blondie pieces were harder, denser, and a bit gummy with a light caramel flavor.

The ice cream itself could easily be mistaken for a generic vanilla, as it had just the barest hint of butteriness to it, but I would not have guessed it was brown sugar flavored.

My favorite part of the ice cream was the butterscotch toffee flakes. They have a nice butterscotch taste coupled with some toffee crunch. Unfortunately, the flakes were pretty small and I just wish there were more of them.

Overall, Ben & Jerry's Rockin' Blondies is still a good pint of ice cream. It's just that I was hoping for something great and this was all rather mellow.

  2. I threw this out. I have endeavored to eat more of ice cream I initially didn't care much for in the past (Creme Brulee for ex.) to give it a fair chance and well, of course, I never had that moment where I was like "Oh hey this is good -I was just expecting something too different" The actual ice cream itself was NOTHING like it was described. There was NOTHING buttery OR brown sugar about the stuff -didn't taste like vanilla, although it looked like it- and it didn't really taste like ANYTHING. I wanted to like it, but it just wasn't anything I wanted to taste... or not taste, rather.
