Not too long ago, I tore aside the Woman Scouts for making some fairly horrible cookies. (See: Adventurefuls)
This bought me pondering:
- Are they shedding their edge?
- Am I shedding my thoughts?
- May a pair of senile males make a greater cookie than they will?
Let’s discover out!
Ben & Jerry’s Chewy Gooey Cookie
Alright, so I do know I’m reaching right here. Sure, I do know the Woman Scouts don’t really bake the cookies. And sure, I’m conscious that Ben & Jerry don’t even work for the corporate that share their names. And YES, I do know that Keebler makes knock-off Woman Scout cookies year-round, however I actually don’t wish to award this fictional cookie bake-off I’ve created in my fats mind to a bunch of imaginary Elves.
Enter Ben & Jerry’s Chewy Gooey Cookie. Clearly modeled after the Woman Scouts’ Samoas, this new year-round pint options milk chocolate & coconut ice lotions with fudge flakes, shortbread cookies, and caramel swirls.
It’s the second time in as a few years that Ben & Jerry’s is gunning for the Woman Scouts’ heads, after we noticed them introduce Thick Mint (Junk Banter Mint) as a part of the Topped lineup.
Let’s take a second and rejoice the return of the coconut ice cream base within the Ben & Jerry’s lineup. Chewy Gooey Cookie is presently the one pint that gives it. I’m an enormous coconut fan and I discover this to be certainly one of their greatest bases; only a ton of refreshing taste. The pint says you don’t should be a coconut fan to get pleasure from this ice cream, however I feel that’s a bunch of malarky. In the event you don’t like coconut, odds are you’re going to hate this.
The chocolate ice cream is customary fare, however you may’t have a Samoa with out chocolate and it will get the job accomplished. The fudge flakes add little pops of chocolate just like what you’d discover striping and coating the underside of the particular cookie.
Sadly, that’s about the place issues fall off for Ben & Jerry’s Chewy Gooey Cookie.
There’s nothing particularly chewy or gooey about this “cookie”, as a result of there quantity of caramel is critically missing. The above picture is an effective illustration of all the pint; there are some skinny swirls right here and there, however I didn’t encounter something I’d name an excellent “pool” of caramel anyplace all through. Generally it’s so skinny that you may’t even style a lot of it, which is simply an enormous disgrace as a result of you may inform the flavour combos can be dynamite if the caramel was extra outstanding.
I purchased a second pint simply to see if my first was a fluke, but it surely was extra of the identical.
The shortbread cookies are there however I’ve to be trustworthy with you. As a lot as I really like shortbread cookies, they’re the worst cookie addition to an ice cream for my part. When out of the freezer and swimming in powerfully flavored coconut and milk chocolate ice lotions, they sort of simply style like frozen nothingness.
Ben & Jerry’s Chewy Gooey Cookie is a tasty model of a coconut chocolate chip ice cream, however doesn’t do a Samoa justice in any respect.
I suppose I’ve no alternative however to offer the title to the silly Elves.
- My daughter is a Woman Scout! Inform her her cookies suck.
- How dare you! How dare SHE?
- I believed the Adventurefuls tasted nice. Effectively, possibly you will have COVID…
