When peregrinating through the ice cream aisle, I generally avoid mint ice creams since they tend to be rather formulaic: pale green mint base and chocolate chips or some variant therein. Ben & Jerry’s inverts that template, starting with a dense chocolate base and relying on mix-ins to lower the minty boom.
Upon removing the lid, I’m greeted by a wonderful eucalyptus aroma, which I soon learn is due to the creamy peppermint swirl. The pint only improves from there as I excavate what can only be described as Thin Mint spheres.
