Review: Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt & THESE IDIOTS: Gallon Smashing
Junk Food Nation, Happy Wednesday to ya. Just a reminder to keep on retweeting and rewteeting to enter to win a Sampler Pack of all the flavors of RealBeanz iced coffee. Read my review of it and get more details about the contest HERE!
I have to admit, I have spent too many hours in the past two days watching endless footage from the NFL Combine on the NFL Network. But as I was flipping around the channels, I saw on the news that, apparently, the newest YouTube fad out there, following the genius trends of planking, Tebowing, and the friggin’ Harlem Shake, is…Gallon Smashing??
That’s right folks, get ready to hear from a curmudgeon. This is a video of morons grabbing gallons of juice and milk and intentionally destroying them, slipping in the puddles, and all around pretending it was an accident. Now, admittedly, I chuckled a few times in incredulity when I saw this video. But the more I watched it, the more annoyed I got. NOT because it’s a waste of milk or juice (meh) or because it’s destroying unpaid-for property, but because it makes an EFFING MESS.
Yes, I am going all crotchety old man on this one: If I was an employee at this store, and wasn’t one of these unsuspecting shoppers, and saw a kid do a cartwheel, throwing jugs of OJ into the air….and it was MY job to clean it up afterwards? I’d run up and pummel these kids in the mouth and eyes! Are you effing kidding me?? I’m making 7 dollars lining up cans of green beans with a bachelor’s degree in Religion and I have to deal with your dumb ass smashing sh*t all over the ground? I’M GONNA MOP UP THE POOL WITH YOUR HEAD, JERK.
I dunno – what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below.
Today’s junk food: Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt!
Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt represents the newest flavors to be introduced in the Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt line! And I, for one, could not be more excited, because lately I’ve been on a lemon dessert kick. Plus, it’s pretty big when Ben & Jerry’s wants to put you on their label – nice work, Tina Fey. You’ve achieved Stephen Colbert status!
I think this Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt sounds great. Lemon yogurt, which goes well with the already tangy Greek Yogurt, plus blueberry lavender swirl? Sign me up!
I’ll admit something which is considered blasphemy in some circles – I’ve never really watched 30 Rock. No, I know it’s a well received comedy, and I don’t have any personal problem with it, I just never got on board at the beginning and missed the window. This happened with a bunch of comedies: Community, Parks and Rec, etc. I know they’re funny. I’m too busy watching hours of NFL Combine footage, however.
I’m guessing the lavender flavor is in the “natural flavor” part of this Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt. I do enjoy a good lemon oil, too.
When I cracked open this tub of Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt, I smelled a very refreshing lemon aroma. Very crisp, very clean. Didn’t smell like dish soap – this was genuinely fresh.
I dug my spoon into this Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt, and revealed the blueberry swirl. Nicely woven throughout the frozen yogurt, I appreciated that the swirl was balanced with the rest of the dessert. Recently, I reviewed the Blue Bunny Perfectly Peppermint Ice Cream, and while I liked it, it was a SYRUP FEST. Sort of nauseating after a while. But this…this was done right.
Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt tasted great. Easily one of the best packaged lemon desserts I’ve had in a while.
The first bite of this frozen yogurt produced a nice refreshing lemon yogurt flavor. This did NOT taste like lemon ice cream, or like a lomen sherbet – no, the lemon flavor here was more subtle. Still full of lemon flavor, this forzen yogurt did NOT have (IMO) any sour lemon tartness – instead, this frozen yogurt relied on the ever so slight sour of the frozen yogurt and the lemon flavor that was left was just a nice crisp fruitiness. REALLY refreshing.
The frozen yogurt was well completed by the blueberry swirl which added just the right amount of berry flavor to the end of each bite, taking that sort of floating light lemon flavor and bringing it back down to Earth with a distinct blueberry taste. I tasted the lavender VERY slightly; I probably tasted the lavender more when I burped after eating a few bites.
All in all, a VERY good flavor. If you can find it, I’d recommend it. TASTY.
