Let's get specific. I love Ben & Jerry's Half Baked.
Consider the brilliance. Cookie Dough is delicious, but a bit too sweet to consume large amounts (I know, I've tried). Chocolate Fudge Brownie is sinfully intense. Again, too much of a good thing can actually be too much.
Add one amazing idea: mix them together. Out comes a pint of heaven. No sense in bothering with those dinky single serve containers.
Even the name is wonderful.
Okay, you might not know it, but I actually do research when I write. I was over at Ben & Jerry's website, and I saw all the flavors that exist. I noted with alarm that they don't have them all here in Germany! We have like...six flavors – max!
I'm struggling not to get jealous, but to hold onto my positive I Love feelings right now.
The website lists delicacies like Cheesecake Brownie, Chubby Hubby and Cannoli.
That. I. Can't. Buy. Here.
Not to mention the frozen yoghurt versions (one-third the calories so you can eat three times as much!).
Forget the ice cream, I'm the one who's melting here!
So here's what I'll do:
- Take several deep breaths.
- Get the kids into bed.
- Grab my pint of Half Baked.
And it'll all be good.
