Ben & Jerry’s has been churning out a number of new flavors to start the year, the newest of which is The Tonight Dough—the successor to Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night Snack—featuring chocolate and caramel ice creams, a chocolate cookie swirl and two kinds of cookie dough: chocolate chip and peanut butter.
Much like Boom Chocolatta! Cookie Core, the caramel base is meek, so this is in essence a chocolate ice cream with cookie dough—hardly a bad thing. And the chocolate cookie swirl, the same swirl found in Milk & Cookies, adds a grittiness to complement the chewy marble-sized cookie dough pieces. While The Tonight Dough won’t help me overlook the number of outstanding flavors that have met the flavor graveyard, it is good, and peanut butter cookie dough is a welcome addition to Ben & Jerry’s arsenal of mix-ins. Ultimately, though, if I find myself hankering for chocolate and peanut butter, I’m going to stick with Graeter’s Buckeye Blitz.
