Ben and Jerry's Colin Kaepernick's CHANGE THE WHIRLED

Dear Sillies,

The warm weather provides excuse for my latest indulgence. As do you. 

So here I am with some Ben and Jerry's Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert. As labeled, it packs "caramel with fudge chips, graham cracker swirls and chocolate cookie swirls." I know, right? But hear me out: It's NON-DAIRY and thus well, never mind. It's not at all healthy. It's healthier than ice cream, however, and I wouldn't have guessed it's non-dairy. 

The base tastes like smooth butter cream. The swirled chocolate-graham cracker-cookie mix tastes divine. I have no words, except to say I'd take a knee for it. It earns a 9 on my 1-10 scale.  







Stay sweet, cool, and silly, my dears. xo

  1. Sounds de-lish! I've had a craving for ice cream lately that I've been trying to resist. You're not helping, LOL!

    1. But it's non-dairy and thus zero calories, right?

  3. Glad that you enjoyed it. Icecream is not on my list of indulgences. Chocolate on the other hand...

    1. So long as you can access chocolate, you'll be fine, EC.

  4. You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! Prairie Farm butter pecan ice cream. I dig the pecans out and eat them first to get them out of the way. Then the buttery vanilla ice cream that's left is the best!

    1. Mmm, pecans. Yummy. Buttery vanilla ice cream, yummy too. Add chocolate, and I scream, Mike.

    1. Yeah. It doesn't taste non-dairy, Alex. I'm sure you'd approve. Smiles.

  7. if it brings you to your knees, that's a winner. I'll have to find it (but knowing TX, it's probably not allowed with Colin on the label) Sigh.

    1. You're likely right about that, Joanne. Sadly.
      Hope you have other delights to cool you off.

  8. There is something about non-diary ice cream that ain't right, but if you give it a 9, I may have to try some...

    1. I know, but it doesn't taste non-dairy. I think this one's "right." Cheers, Jeff.

  9. Is Colin still a thing? Sadly, I've found that most dairy-free ice creams are even higher in fat and calories than their dairy counterpart.

    1. I guess I'm starting to see that too, Diane. That's just crazy. But fro yo and sorbets are generally MUCH lower in fat, am I right? )=

  10. Oh that sounds pretty good. My favorite ice cream is pistachio. But if places don't have that I go for plain chocolate and get a bottle of hot fudge. Hot fudge makes everything better. lol

    1. I hear you, girlfriend. Hot fudge is my favorite kind of fabulous, even on a hot day.

  11. That's really cool that it's so good when it's non-dairy! Here to say hello. :)

  12. Ooh, that does sound tempting - but maybe a bit too sweet for me with caramel and fudge.

    1. Yes, it is pretty sweet. Not too sweet for me, though. Thanks, Annalisa.

  13. Sounds good! I would give this a go! I really like non-dairy products.

  14. Dear Robyn, I have been around cows since childhood. They are permitted only 2 occupations: milk production and beef. They are gentle things. Many times, I have led them off my property, back to their own pastures, with an arm around their shoulders. I will always buy "dairy". Their alternative is "beef".

    1. What a sweet vision - Dear Geo leading a cow off his property with an arm around its shoulders. You're a peach, Geo. Peaches and cream, now that's good stuff too. Beef, ugh. I tend to avoid. Save the cows!

  15. I would consider buying it for the name alone. Colin is a brave man.

    Love,
    Janie

  16. Oh man, I just came across this and now I want some ice cream for breakfast. I just might have to sneak out for some since my wife would have my head if she found out I ate ice cream.

      Thanks for chiming in.
