Ben & Jerry's Boston Cream Pie Ice Cream


Dear Ben (and/or Jerry), Thank you for instinctively knowing that I love Boston Cream Pie and making a new ice cream flavor based on it!  This new Ben & Jerry's pint is packed with: "Boston Cream Pie Ice Cream with yellow cake pieces, fudge flakes, and swirls of pastry cream".  Side note: When I was younger my favorite ice cream flavor was French Vanilla- I couldn't get enough of that rich, egg-y, bright yellow, smack your face vanilla flavor.  This could be the very reason why I enjoyed this ice cream, haha.  The dominant flavor is a v. sweet vanilla flavor, with bits of cake added.  The fudge flakes seem like more of an afterthought, they could've definitely put more of them in the pint.  

Now, it doesn't REALLY taste like a Boston Cream Pie mainly due to the obvious texture differences and the lack of real custard, but I still really like it for what it is.  I hope this new flavor sticks around in the rotation!
