Rated: Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Me Up.

In honour of Free Cone Day, here’s a little B&J post to get you going…

Peanut Butter Me Up

PB and Yay

What? One of Ben & Jerry’s more exciting flavours: a new concoction consisting of Vanilla and Peanut Butter Ice Creams, a ‘core’ of Raspberry Jam, and miniature Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.

The PB Ice Cream was particularly luscious, with a rich taste and super-smooth texture.

The Jam core was excellent too – the tang of it cut through the creaminess, adding a pretty exciting dimension (with an unusual, pulpy texture).

That said, there was room for improvement.

More Jam would have gone down well, for starters.

And as for those Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: amazing – but sadly sparse.

Without them, my teeth just got BORED

Where? Available at most decent supermercados

How Much? Typically £4.99 for 500ml (though you might get lucky and snap up a tub on offer)

Rating?

8/10

More killer, less filler – and then it might even warrant a 10
