COMING SOON: Ben & Jerry’s Oat of this Swirled Ice Cream

Ben  Jerry s Oat of this Swirled Ice Cream

Are you a fan of Ben & Jerry’s discontinued Oatmeal Cookie Chunk Ice Cream? Wait, let me rephrase that. Are you mad at Ben & Jerry’s for discontinuing Oatmeal Cookie Chunk? If so, do not read the rest of this post because it may make you angrier.

Earlier this month we covered a couple of upcoming Ben & Jerry’s flavors, but there’s a third and that’s Oat of this Swirled. The new flavor features buttery brown sugar ice cream with fudge flakes and oatmeal cinnamon cookie swirls.

It’s somewhat similar to the beloved Oatmeal Cookie Chunk, which had sweet cream cinnamon ice cream, oatmeal cookies, and fudge chunks. So Oat of this Swirled is maddeningly close to the flavor that now sits in Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard.

If you’re not familiar with the story about the discontinued flavor, it was taken off shelves because Ben & Jerry’s couldn’t find a replacement supplier for the oatmeal cookies who could produce cookies as good as the original. So instead of putting mediocre cookies into their ice cream, they discontinued the flavor in 2012.

I thought Coffee-mate already did a chocolate version of its Natural Bliss creamer. It did, but it was low-fat. This one is full fat with real milk and cream. (Spotted by Robbie at Target.)

I learned what Chicago-style bagels are. They have been baked with steam instead of being boiled then baked like NY-style bagels. I don’t know if I’ll ever need to use that information again after using it for this caption, but I guess it’s nice to have. (Spotted by Robbie at H-E-B.)
