Ben & Jerry’s Fair Goodness Cake

by Rodzilla on June 15, 2011 · 7 comments

Full disclosure: I didn’t finish this pint – my roommate did. He also finished a pint of Milk & Cookies immediately after..and there may have been a doughnut. I know what you must be thinking, with such little food how could he possibly share? Chalk it up to incredible generosity, he knows I am a big fan of coconut, and have a bit of a thing for B&J. So here are my thoughts and a few of Mooms’s.

Chocolate ice cream with German chocolate cake pieces and a Coconut Caramel Swirl

Both Mooms and I are big B&J fans, but neither of us have ever been crazy about their chocolate base. Fair Goodness fared a bit better, there was an additional note of coconut which kept the chocolate from suffering the traditional blandness. I would have liked a few more German Cake pieces (like in Dubba and Erin’s pints), and the Mooms was calling for a thicker caramel swirl, but all in all – not bad.

For the nutrition crew

I plan to pick up a pint of my own at some point, but don’t see it becoming a favorite. Mooms felt this was a one and done, but among the best of the chocolate flavors.

Grade: B

Nat – I saw they have this in the UK under the name “Cocunutterly Fair” If you do get a chance for a PB flavor – Clusterfluff for sure :D
Jim – that we are, I’d love to see your take on some of the flavors available in the UK.
P – I don’t know about Chicago, but I’m not ashamed to tell you (and recommend) that I’ve called my local supermarkets in the past

Just so you know, if you weren’t satisfied with the amount of cake pieces in your B&J ice cream, you can write a letter to customer service on the website(you will need to use the identifying numbers from the bottom of the pint as proof that it was a real pint) and B&J will mail you a coupon for a free pint of ice cream.
