Create your own Ben and Jerry's flavor...

if you could create your very own flavor of Ben and Jerry's ice cream, what would it be?? what would the base ice cream flavor be and what goodies would be in it? have you ever tried to make it in your own home?

i love Ben and Jerry's so much, that i have been on a quest to try every flavor they have ever made, i have to visit the ice cream section of the grocery store to see what Ben and Jerry's flavors are in stock even when i am not buying any ice cream, and i wouldn't hesitate to drive 4 hours to the Ben and Jerry's factory in Vermont just to be at the heart of where all of the ice cream is created, so exciting.

i have a few potential flavors in mind but i am very excited to see what other people may have thought up.

oh, and who actually gets 4 servings out of a pint of Ben and Jerry's????

First I have to say that I'd rather have plain old vanilla bean with out anything at all in it.... but, if I had to fancy it up,

I think I'd like vanilla with oatmeal cookie dough, a chocolate fudge ribbon and a caramel ribbon.

LOL! Certainly, Not me I would take cherry and chocolate ice cream as a base with brownies, and cherries mixed in.

I don't know why they took my favorite Jerry's Jubilee off the shelf, I thought my insane habit a couple years ago would've kep it in stock. I somehow manage getting by with the Cherry Garcia which is sorta similar but definitely not the same

I can vouch for this LOL. I have caught her "talking to her friends" in the freezer section more than once . I am buying food for the house and I turn around and she is gone. When that happens I know right where I should go to find her LOL.

OK I am going to have to think of my ultimate flavor a bit more. I have some ideas, but many of them have already been created like Cherry Garcia.

Oh but what about the ones they don't make anymore? I loved Festivus - gingerbread and caramel - they only stocked it at Christmas so I'd buy several pints to last as long as possible. Unfortunately, they don't make it anymore!

They actually had a flavor called Festivus??? That's too funny (yet another great Seinfeld moment!)! It sounds delicious, too.

kleenex that actually sounds really good. I would want that with real vanilla bean. I bet that would be a great combo. That would really bring out the fruity flavor of the pepper and tame the heat enough (hopefully). I love the name Fire and Ice too. Very clever!
