Ben & Jerry's Vermonty Python
No one Expects The Spanish Inquisition... Or Crappy Ice Cream
After my recent run of luck with Ben & Jerry's I gave another of the new flavors a try- "Vermonty Python"
"Vermonty Phython" according to the pint is a coffee liqueur flavored ice cream with a cookie crumb swirl and fudge cows.
Sounds pretty good right?, yeah I thought so to. But...
The first thing you smell is the fake alcohol of the "liqueur" that fades away fast enough and leaves you with a weak sweet coffee like taste.
The cookie swirl is weirdly hard and reminds you more of loose coffee grounds more the cookies and let's not talk about the chocolate cows.
If they had been semi sweet- like the fish in Phish Food or the chunks in Cherry Garcia they would have been great.
Instead the cows are this weird wanna be fudge/cheap milk chocolate.
BLAH!!! why this ice cream fall so flat on it's face after the greatness of the other two flavors I don't know but store brand ice cream would have been better.
