I’m a budget shopper, so when I’m craving some cold, creamy confections I tend to skip past the pricier name brands, and their tiny containers. Set me up with a half-gallon of store-brand vanilla, some chocolate syrup, and I’m pretty darn happy. Last week I was browsing the freezer of my local Walgreens, and noticed a buy one, get one free deal on Ben & Jerry’s. I scanned over the list of flavors, and curiosity got the better of me. Before I could say ‘Phish Food,’ I had a container of it and ‘Truffle Trifecta’ in my shopping cart.
Truffle Trifecta is a variety of B&J’s exclusive to Walgreens stores, so I hope you have one in your area, or you’re going to miss out on some amazing ice cream. Truffle Trifecta has a base of milk chocolate ice cream, and dime/penny sized chocolate truffles. The filling in those liberally placed truffles is marshmallow, fudge, and my absolute favorite, caramel. When you bite in to that nugget of golden, buttery yumminess, it is an amazing flavorful experience. The contrast with the chocolate ice cream is so…. right. That’s the only way I can describe it.
Should you be able to afford the premium price, or you only indulge on occasion, I highly recommend Ben & Jerry’s Truffle Trifecta. It gets an easy ‘Yea!’
