Ben & Jerry’s new Boots on the Moooo’n Ice Cream is another collaboration with Netflix, but this time it’s inspired by the streaming service’s new series, Space Force.
Why is it called Boots on the Moooo’n?
Well, let’s just say if you’re playing a drinking game while watching Space Force’s first episode and you have to take a shot every time the words “boots on the moon” are said, you will probably not remember how the episode ended.
According to its container, the flavor is “a universe of milk chocolate ice cream with fudge cows & toffee meteor clusters orbiting a sugar cookie dough core.”
Here’s the thing about the universe; it’s vast and dwarfs anything in it, making everything else inconsequential. And that is also an appropriate way to describe the presence of the milk chocolate ice cream in this pint.
While the sugar cookie dough core has a nice gritty texture and a pleasant, sweet flavor on its own, it gets lost in my mouth when combined with the chocolate ice cream. I guess one could say, if they were reaching for a space reference, that the chocolate base is like a black hole that absorbs the flavor of the cookie dough core.
Yes, your spoon will be in the same orbit as a fudge cow or toffee meteor once in a while, but the fudge just amps up the choco flavor. As for the toffee meteors, while they do add a nuttiness and wonderful crunch that contrast the creamy chocolate base, they’re like major meteors showers in that they only show up every so often.
With that said, I have to say I like this pint as much as I like watching Space Force. They’re both interesting enough that I’ll finish them because it’s hard to go too wrong with either Ben & Jerry’s chocolate ice cream or Steve Carell.
Also, I need something to watch because I’ve already gone through all the new episodes of Queer Eye and The Big Flower Fight.
But the show and ice cream aren’t must-binges.
