Yet Another Limited Batch Ben and Jerry’s Flavor at WesShop!

rocky road-ish

I swear to god…WesShop is going to be the death of me. I was strolling through the aisles today, and there, at the very front of the ice cream section, was ANOTHER limited batch flavor, and this one had marshmallows in it. Double whammy! As if I couldn’t buy that. So it’s here. Ben and Jerry’s Rocky Road-ish Ice Cream. I need to wait for a day when I can make a true commitment to a pint of ice cream. Until then it will sit in my freezer, forever tempting me with its toasted marshmallow and fudge covered almond deliciousness. I need to stop writing this before ice cream passion takes over and I eat the whole thing. One day, Ari. You’ll give yourself that pleasure. Until then, simply rejoice over the fact that you will not die without having tried the limited batch Rocky Road-ish Ice Cream (which you too can purchase at WesShop if you hurry!)
