I HAVE FOUND GOD

I have found god in the form of Ben & Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns ice cream. He’s a sweet deity whose sacrament consists of caramel cinnamon struesel but can be vengeful if you eat too much (I’m learning about this as I type… Sweet Ben & Jerry, have mercy upon me). I’d venture forth on a crusade to convert natives and slay apostates if the Lord Cinnamon Bun did ask…

I’m didn’t get to try the S’mores yet. I’m a bit afraid it will set off a Frozen Treat Reformation.

  1. @Erin,

    The toasted marshmallow milkshake that they don’t sell near me made me grab for the closest thing. Mrs C bought the Cinnamon Bun ice cream and I tried that first…. And now I have seen the light… and it is ever so cinnamony.

  2. B&J’s Cinnamon Bun ice cream is my not-so-secret obsession. I always make the mistake of eating straight out of the carton instead of scooping a reasonable amount into a bowl.

  3. No, those aren’t god. God tastes more like Baileys® Irish cream Häagen-Dazs covered with melted Belgian chocolate 60% of cocoa 🙂

    PS.: I ate last night, and yes, I hav2 bags of Belgian chocolate at home just for baking 🙂

  4. i haven’t seen those flavors, but my local store had Ben & Jerry’s “Key Lime Pie” flavor recently and i couldn’t help myself from eating the whole container in one sitting!

  5. Having several years experience of sitting down almost nightly with B&J (and their Haagen Daaz brethen), let me pass along a bit of advice. Let it sit out for 10-15 minutes (uncovered) before digging in. The only downside is that this approach is more likely to lead to the “uh oh, I’m downing a whole carton in one sitting again” realization. Getting it partially melted (all of the aforementioned flavors are quite worthy of praise by the way) does something wonderful to the mouth feel and taste.

  6. This is the comeback album for Ben and Jerry’s. After years of losing to Haagen D (Banana Split, Caramel Cone, etc.) B&J finally have a winning flavor. Cinnamon Bunz almost makes me forget the stuck-in-your-teeth nightmare that is Yellow Brickle Road!

  7. I purchased both of these today while grocery shopping. I also purchased the stuff to make my own toasted marshmallow shakes. I am going to have SUCH an ice cream stomach ache this week.

  8. I’m pretty sure Cinnamon Bun replaced Vermonty Python. And while I have nothing against Cinnamon Bun, Vermonty Python was a more benevolent god by far.

  9. they actually have a graveyard for retired flavors (and hold funerals for those being interred). some come out of retirement too.

    @ -l
    think creme brulee is still out there… if you go to the B&J website, click on one of the flavors, they have a “flavor locator” where they show local stores where said flavor is in stock. i apologize in advance 🙂
