Ben & Jerry's ice cream, Manly

Ever since I found out that Ben & Jerry's was coming to Sydney, I've been wanting to visit.

I remember browsing a job website looking for a new job when I saw that they were looking for scoopers for their scoop shop. I got incredibly excited, and then realised that it's all the way in Manly and it was near impossible for me to actually work there. Because it would have been several hours on public transport.

Several months after they opened, I finally made it there after our dinner at Pho Sam.

The drive to Manly was worth it.

Oooh yum look at those flavours. So many to choose from!! The flavours include:
  • Berry Berry Extraordinary
  • Cherry Garcia
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Chocolate Fudge Brownie
  • Chocolate Macadamia
  • Chocolate Therapy
  • Chunky Monkey
  • Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz!
  • Lemonade Stand Sorbet
  • Mint Chocolate Chunk
  • New York Super Fudge Supreme
  • Peanut Cookie-burra Dough (they held a compeition in Australia to name this flavour!!)
  • Phish Food
  • Strawberry
  • Strawberry Cheesecake
  • Sweet Cream & Cookies
  • Triple Caramel Chunk
  • Vanilla

I chose Phish Food & Mint Chocolate Chunk in a waffle cone, dipped with chocolate and crusted with biscuit crumbs ($7.70 I think?). OMG. Yum.

I liked the fact that the mint wasn't an overly bright green. Infact, it was almost white. But it packed a minty punch and was generously laced with huge chunks of chocolate. The Phish Food was delicious - I was very much looking forward to it, I used to buy tubs of it for 1 pound when I lived in wonder I got so fat haha. Now that I think about it though, I don't remember getting an actual Phish in it. Unlucky!! But the serving was HUUUUGE, worth the $7 odd dollars that I spent!!

Because I'm a shite food blogger, I can't remember what Liz got - but she said it was good. She looks pretty happy too so I'd say it was a success.

I think Laura got Phish Food too, and a scoop of Lemonade Stand Sorbet in the same kind of cone as I got.

I shall be going back to get more in the near future - perhaps I'll take boyfriend with me. They have merchandise too - I really wanted an ice cream scoop but I was too lazy to ask how much they were......I hate asking how much things are and then when deciding I don't have enough money saying oh ok thanks makes me feel awkward!!

I don't care that it's cold - anytime of the year is a perfect time for ice cream. That's ok, more ice cream for you if Josh doesn't want it in winter!! Hehe!!

The ice cream is so good I agree! Phish food is my favourite as is Chunky Monkey. Hmm actually strawberry cheesecake is good too. I don't think there is a bad one! :P
