Ben & Jerry: Good to the Core

The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming everywhere!

It’s a beautiful time on campus…except for the fact the the dreaded finals are fast approaching. Projects, essays and exams are piling up faster than I can keep up with!

But, my dear sister knows just how to lift my out of my work sinkhole. She bought me two of Ben & Jerry’s new core flavors as a surprise. I’ve been craving these bad boys since they were unveiled on Snapchat earlier this year.

The Time I Bought Two Ice Creams in One Night: Zwalen’s Ice Cream

This week was a pretty eventful one, to say the least! My school won this little thing called the NCAA National Championships, maybe you’ve heard of it? I was part of one of the most exciting moments in school history and I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else but jammed into our Pavilion with four thousand of my closest pals.

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I LOVE ICE CREAM. I could probably eat it for every meal, but that isn’t a good idea. But I do eat ice cream whenever the opportunity presents itself. There is never a bad time for ice cream, right?

So, on my reviews page, I will give you my honest opinion on the ice cream I’ve had, either straight outta the pint or from a creamery. I want you to enjoy ice cream as much as possible, and there is nothing worse than having your expectations crushed by an ice cream that doesn’t live up to the hype. So sit back, and get ready to eat vicariously!
