Ice Cream Review: Ben & Jerry’s Americone Dream

Having taught American Politics for two years, I’ve been known to make liberal use of Colbert Report clips. No late-night host better understood our political institutions and could deliver more thoughtful critiques of them (e.g. his multi-year effort to lampoon campaign finance laws).

So when Monsieur Colbert partnered with Ben & Jerry’s, I was expecting something out of the ordinary—certainly not a plain vanilla base. Indeed, the description is to creative what Secretary Clinton is to transparency. Fudge-covered waffle pieces represented the only original element. And yet, in concert they work much better than I expected. The aforementioned waffle pieces permeate the entire pint and boast a deep-fried crispness. And the caramel swirl was not the subdued variety you’ll find in a Talenti pint, but rather a swirl so thick as to almost resemble a core. This one—not unlike Colbert’s shtick—easily won me over.
