St.VegasMarchIceCreamYouScreamWeAllScreamForPatricksMadnessDayPalooza Day 4: Ben & Jerry’s Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt

Today, Saturday, is hump day for me in Vegas.  The halfway point.  The middle-roney.  Let’s assess the situation:

Hygiene condition: 50% (need liquids and shower, order not important)

Mental condition: 99% (VEGAS BABY!)

Capital condition: 2% (Meager at best; can someone lend me a $5 chip?)

Mortality: ehhhh….I’d say that’s teetering somewhere between “You’re ok!” and “Stop …just stop.”

And to make things better/worse: IT’S SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!  TOP OF THE MORNING TO YA!  Tonight I’m headed to Todd English’s PUB, which features a deal: 7-second pints.  That it, they time you – and if you can drink a pint of beer in 7-seconds, the beer is free.  That race is going to go all night long, my friends.

As always, I’ll be tweeting all weekend from Vegas, so be sure to follow me on Twitter @junkfoodguy.

Today’s junk food is Ben & Jerry’s Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt!  I’ve reviewed the Peanut Butter Banana and Strawberry Shortcake varieties – now let’s tackle the Raspberry Fudge Chunk, shall we?

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt: The Money Shot.

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt: Simple depiction - red juicy raspberries and dark chocolate

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt: More of that same depiction. Load it up, Ben & Jerry's! Cover every scrap of white space on this carton with raspberries!

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt: Love that there is real raspberry puree in here.

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt: UNVEILED! Big pieces of chocolate poking out already.

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt: Kinda hard NOT to get some chunks in every spoonful.

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt: Delicious.

The flavor of this Ben & Jerry’s Raspberry Fudge Chunk Greek Frozen Yogurt was pretty good.  The raspberry froyo was sweet although muted in terms of raspberry taste – quite frankly like the raspberry froyo I’d had in the past.  The chocolate chunks were VERY chocolatey.  In fact, FUDGE CHUNK = pieces of chocolate.  That’s all it was.  Raspberry froyo with big ass pieces of chocolate inside.  Interestingly, though, the richness of the dark chocolate helped bring out the raspberry flavor in the froyo.

Strangely, when eating a bite of chocolate chunk and raspberry froyo together, it almost tasted like one of those Whitman’s Sampler chocolates that have raspberry creme inside…mmmmmm. You can almost imagine that you’d just bit into one of these rich chocolates, and inside was all this wonderful raspberry froyo.

Very tasty, very flavorful, and a good combo.  Thumbs up, Ben & Jerry’s.

    Where’s the review of Burger King’s green ketchup? That’s so Kansas City.

    I finally just got around to trying this flavor and wanted to say your review is spot on. Especially the whitman’s sampler part because that’s all I kept thinking when I had a good amount of chunks with the base. I think it could’ve used some sort of swirl. Maybe a raspberry swirl to up the raspberry flavor or just a plain old fudge swirl.
