Ben & Jerry's happy hour

If you haven't heard, Ben & Jerry's in University City has a daily happy hour special from 4-7 pm. 3 hours. 3 scoops. 3 dollars. After walking around the city with the sun beating down on us, my friend Maddie and I sought refuge with the rich, creamy and creative flavors at Ben & Jerry's.






Admittedly, I don't buy Ben & Jerry's that often because the flavors I love are some of the ones with the highest fat content and because I can never justify buying a pint of ice cream at the cost of a half gallon. However, ice cream happy hour's three scoops won't disappoint. For $3 you nearly get a pint of ice cream and you don't have to commit to one flavor (that is, unless you want to). I chose peanut butter cookie dough, chunky monkey and oatmeal raisin cookie. If I had to do it all over again (and I'm sure I will), I would have done two scoops of chunky monkey with the peanut butter cookie dough in the middle, almost like a peanut butter and banana sandwich. The cinnamon of the oatmeal raisin cookie ice cream was too powerful for the other two flavors. Luckily, it was at the bottom and by that point I had a stomachache and waved my white flag.

PEANUT BUTTER Cookie Dough?! I didn't know such a thing existed! Now, I want to run right out and get some!

Also, I gave you a little shout-out on our blog :) Sadly, we don't have many readers right now since hockey season is over, but hey, maybe someone will head over to your blog!

aww thanks, Jess! I keep scouring the supermarket shelves, but I have yet to find the peanut butter cookie dough ice cream in stores. If you find it, let me know. You, me, Ben & Jerry can all hang out and watch the Flyers :)
