Ben & Jerry’s “That’s My Jam” is Ridiculously Sweet Yet We Absolutely Love It

December 8, 2014

It is only 12 noon and I’ve already finished a pint of ice cream. By myself. Never mind that I’ve just consumed 1,040 calories of dairy. The spoon is still in my mouth—an attempt to suck off whatever lingering creamy residue that concave utensil could possibly hold. The culprit is this new Ben & Jerry’s variant called “That’s My Jam”, which is part of their new “Core” series, where each pint comes stuffed with a center of sugary madness. In this flavor’s case, it’s a packed cylinder of raspberry jam, which I just tunneled through and licked off clean in the span of 30 minutes.

Chocolate and raspberry, when bound together into a single sweet treat, makes my heart tingle and melt into a gross, syrupy mess. An ex-boyfriend used to send over containers of Trader Joe’s Chocolate Raspberry Sticks when he would spend summers in America—those raspberry sticks would solely constitute my meal plan for the next week, until they were replenished with even more containers when he’d return to Manila. Chocolate-Raspberry is the flavor that sends a celestial orchestra playing in my ears whether in cake form, candy form, waffle form, or Frappuccino form.

This Ben & Jerry’s “That’s My Jam” flavor is delicious. Starting today, there will be no vacancies for Cherry Garcia in our freezer any longer—or any other B&J flavor, for that matter. There is difficulty finding the right words to describe such an edible pick-me up. Artificially-flavored chocolate and raspberry ice cream are positioned in a blissful yin and yang, the light pink ice cream filled with shards of fudge chips. It’s not too sweet on its own, but when scooped with the raspberry jam, it’s a saccharine, adrenaline-inducing overdose that’s extremely addicting.

A sugar crash, of course, is highly inevitable. Save this for the weekend and don’t do what I just did and shovel it incessantly into your greedy maw especially if you’ve got piles of paperwork on your desk. Now I can’t do shit. You have been warned.
