Frozen Friday: Ben & Jerry's - Scotchy Scotch Scotch Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry's Scotchy Scotch Scotch ice cream is a limited-time flavor inspired by Ron Burgundy, the lead character from The Anchorman 1 and 2. It features butterscotch ice cream with butterscotch swirls (sorry, no Scotch whiskey here).

I picked up a pint on sale for $3.50.

The flavor was first introduced last October, but it wasn't until recently that I was finally able to find it at my local supermarkets, so here we are (I find the lag is often the norm with new Ben & Jerry's flavors in my area; I guess they are on the other side of the country...).

It's among the simpler of Ben & Jerry's flavors. For those of you who like chunks and what not, you won't be completely disappointed. The butterscotch swirl is made up of crackly, thin bits of butterscotch. Besides a bit of a crispy crunch, the swirl was indeed buttery.

More buttery still was the butterscotch ice cream, which was also rich and creamy with that signature caramelized butter flavor.

Overall, Ben & Jerry's Scotchy Scotch Scotch was pretty nice and ideal if you like super-buttery ice cream (or butterscotch obviously). It's not super interesting as far as Ben & Jerry's flavors go, but it's good.
