Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Why have I never heard of Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Cookie Dough ice cream until now?

While my frozen dessert shop of late has been Coldstone Creamery, I found myself in a B&J last night after dinner on Newbury St.

Without fail, my eye is always drawn toward desserts featuring chocolate and peanut butter. It's an amazing combination that has followed me forever. I'm guessing that the 15 pounds I'd like to lose could be attributed to all of the peanut butter-based desserts I have eaten over the course of my lifetime.

Walking into the B&J wasn't an accident; we walked past on the way to dinner, and left room for ice cream afterward. Surveying the list of flavors, I found this one in mere moments. I didn't even need a free taste, but of course I ordered one.

Although chocolate-peanut butter desserts do it for me, I tend to gravitate toward vanilla-based ice creams when combining with peanut butter. At Coldstone, it would be cake batter or vanilla with peanut butter and Reese's mix-ins.

Here at B&J, they use malt ice cream according to their website. One word for the combination - delicious!
