Usually Tuesday is just a reminder that we aren't even halfway through the work week. But, today we are happy it's Tuesday for several reasons: it's officially May, temperatures are finally well above 50 degrees, and Ben & Jerry's just dropped three new flavors of cookie dough ice cream.
The Vermont-based, frozen treat company is honoring its historical first cookie dough creation from over 30 years ago with the new flavor debut. The first, Chip Off the Dough Block, is made from a chocolate and chocolate chip ice cream base with chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate chip cookies. The second, dubbed P.B. Dough-ble Chocolate, mixes a dark and milk chocolate ice cream base with peanut butter cookie dough and peanut butter cookie butter. The third, cheekily named Cinn-Dough-rella, is made from a cinnamon and caramel ice cream base with cinnamon bun dough, shortbread cookies, and oatmeal cinnamon cookie swirls.
Although only available inside Scoop Shop locations nationwide, these ice cream creations offer an exclusive pull to make the in-store visit well worth it: options to upgrade your favorite new flavor into a Half Baked Sundae (scoops with gobs of brownie and cookie dough), Chocolate Dipped Waffle Cone (two scoops in a choco-dipped waffle cone topped with cookie dough), and Put A Dough Pop on It (two scoops with a choco-dipped cookie dough pop). Be warned: These flavors are not for the cookie-dough tentative. If you're a cookie dough-lover, then use this 70-degree day to get out and grab a scoop (or two).
