Here’s the thing: I like ice cream and eat ridiculous amounts of it on a weekly basis. An average week will see me consume 3-4 pints, so I thought I would chronicle some of that gluttony, starting with Peanut Butter Half Baked, a variation on Half Baked. In lieu of vanilla ice cream and cookie dough, Ben and Jerry’s incorporated peanut butter ice cream and peanut butter cookie dough.
While the mix-ins are unimpeachable—if there’s a better brownie than Greyston’s I’ve yet to find it—both the chocolate and peanut butter ice cream bases are muted. After a few bites, I find myself largely ignoring the ice cream, homing in instead on the mastodonic orbs of cookie dough and chewy brownie pieces.
I certaInly didn’t have a problem finishing the pint, but in contradistinction to a number of flavors that have met the cruel fate of the flavor graveyard—Crème Brûlée, Oatmeal Cookie Chunk, and Scotchy Scotch Scotch—I can’t say I’ll miss this limited batch offering.
