Phish Food

Screw HagenDaaz, I'm A BJ kinda girl.

No. I'm not talking about *that*.

As any truly depressed woman will tell you, there are always a few reliable creature comforts that an American girl can always fall back on. Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream has been a part of heartsick experiences since 1978. Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield actually met in 7th grade gym class near in my hometown in Long Island, New York (Merrick to be exact, if any NY'ers out there are wondering). So while contemplating posting the virtues of Phish Food (my favorite Ben & Jerry's flavor-chocolate ice cream with caramel, marshmallow and little chocolate fishes), I was googling for an image, and I came across the official Ben & Jerry's website.

I was *appalled* to find out that Phish Food is not amongst the Top Ten Flavors!


I was trying to explain to Bulgelast night what Phish Food was. He looked at the cam quizzically and typed "ok" (which usually means "Whatever, crazy American girl")

And then it hit me.


There's no Ben & Jerry's in New Zealand!


I assuaged my sadness with the rationale that I will be so happy to get back there that I probably won't be that broken up about being Phish Food deprived. And plus they have it in Singapore, fer fuck's sake...New Zealand can't be far behind. Maybe I"ll open up a Ben & Jerry's in NZ and become a millionaire (which is New Zealand dollars is like about $800)

So are the Top Ten Most Popular Flavors

1. Cherry Garcia® Ice Cream
(Cherry Ice Cream with Cherries & Fudge Flakes)

2. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream
(Vanilla Ice Cream with Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough)

3. Chunky Monkey® Ice Cream
(Banana Ice Cream with Fudge Chunks & Walnuts)

4. Chocolate Fudge Brownie™ Ice Cream
(Chocolate Ice Cream with Fudge Brownies)

5. Vanilla Ice Cream
(Vanilla Ice Cream..duh.)

6. Half Baked™ Ice Cream
(Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Creams with Fudge Brownies & Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough)

7. New York Super Fudge Chunk® Ice Cream (Chocolate Ice Cream with White & Dark Fudge Chunks, Pecans, Walnuts & Fudge Covered Almonds)

8. Cherry Garcia® Low Fat Frozen Yogurt
(Cherry Low Fat Frozen Yogurt with Cherries & Fudge Flakes ...Cherry Garcia for wimps)

9. Coffee Heath Bar Crunch® Ice Cream
(Coffee Ice Cream with Chunks of HEATH® Bar Crunch, made with Fair Trade Certified™ coffee)

10. Peanut Butter Cup™ Ice Cream
(Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cups)

What's your favorite/favourite flavor/flavour?

Has yours been unfairly slighted as my
Phish Food has????

The nerve...

Number 6 for Ben & Jerry's

But my favorite all time ice cream is by HagenDaaz...special flavor Bailey's Irish Cream ice cream. Talk about smooth.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

I have to keep large quantities of chunky monkey on hand for a 16 year old daughter with her first boyfriend and the 12 year old requires chocolate chip cookie dough whenever she decides that she is not impressed with the whole cramping thing. For me, it Cherry Garcia.

Well I may be biased as I work for a company that distributes Ben and Jerry's. I am hooked on Chunky Monkey as I love banana flavour but think the chocolate chunks are too big. A very close second would be Gobfather which is an awesomer version of Heavenly Hash? Phish Food, Coffee Heath Bar and Peanut Butter Cup aren't available here as I am sure many more flavours. I haven't tried too many so I may change my mind when I get around to giving them a scoop

Sorry... I'm a Häagen-Dazs girl through and through. I will walk on hot coals for their Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream. B&J is quite big here too, but I've yet to find a Ben & Jerry's cafe. I always visit the Häagen-Dazs cafe in Leicester Square when I'm in London... it's a Helga ritual!!


Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

An easy fix to provide you with Phish Food: a large cooler lined with dry ice and filled with Phish Food and overnighted to Kiwiland.

Pistachio didn't make it

A new flavor: Down-under All-asunder - kiwi flavoured (you now have to spell weird) ice cream with chocolate sheep and malted milk balls (for sheep dung).

They make a "Karamel Sutra" flavor, no kidding. It's good.

I like the "Phish Phood" cuz I'm a old Phish Head.

Cherry Garcia for me..but since I'm getting on a plane in a few weeks and don't want the airline personnel looking at my backside and charging me for extra baggage, I'm trying to confine myself to the lower-far version....semi-virtuous, I am.
