Five Best Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Flavors

Recently, I received an email in my work inbox inviting me to a national conference. I get a lot of these because national conference is code word for trade show where lots of people try to sell me things and I string them along in true Schilbo fashion getting as much free stuff as I can before peacing out. Good fun. But this "national conference" was different. See, Ben and Jerry are headlining it. I actually want to meet them and not just their free stuff!

Of course, I want the free stuff too because Ben and Jerry (or B and J if you're feeling dirty) make my favoritest ice creams. Without further ado, the Five Best Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Flavors:

Half Baked
Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Creams with Fudge Brownies & Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Phish Food
Chocolate Ice Cream with Gooey Marshmallow, a Caramel Swirl & Fudge Fish

Coffee Heath Bar Crunch
Coffee Ice Cream with Chunks of HEATH® Bar Crunch (made with Fair Trade Certified™ coffee)

Karamel Sutra
A Core of Soft Caramel Encircled by Chocolate & Caramel Ice Creams & Fudge Chips
One time, I tried to recreate the caramel core. With the help of several very creative friends, we melted and drizzled and drilled the caramel at least three different ways and still were unable to replicate the genius consistency of the caramel core of this ice cream. Do not take it for granted.

I sadly haven't tried every Ben and Jerry flavor (because I can't help but buy the ones I already love so much), but I think I might try a few more. And since we're on the general topic, my favorite ice cream flavor is coffee and my favorite ice cream toppings are fudge, caramel, marshmallow goo, and cookie dough. (And I'm not a big fan of fruit in my ice cream.) Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVE those by-the-ounce yogurt places because I can add as many favorite toppings AS I WANT.
