Call me old-fashioned, but amid all of the trendy flavors that manage to find themselves in every conceivable product—pumpkin spice, red velvet, salted caramel etc.—there are just some classic pairings that will never go out of style. One such classic is cookies and cream, or as Ben & Jerry’s inelegantly titles it Sweet Cream & Cookies.
Over the years, I’ve downed dozens of pints, and my favorite remains Graeter’s Cookies and Cream, which features a vanilla base, along with Oreo cookies, resulting in a phantasmagorical degree of pleasure. When I stopped in my local scoop shop for weekend provisions, I was curious to see how Ben & Jerry’s sweet cream base would compare. In short, it compared very well. Not only was the hand-packed pint loaded with chocolate sandwich cookies, but boasted every permutation you could possibly want, from crumbles to full-sized discs. After finishing the pint (in one sitting, of course), the one question that I couldn’t figure out was why hasn’t Ben & Jerry’s made this flavor available in pre-packed pints?
