Ben & Jerry’s FroYo Line: Half Baked FroYo Review
Fro-yo girl here. Capitalizing on the growing popularity of the frozen yogurt category, Ben & Jerry’s offers four flavors of lowfat, probiotic fro-yo available in your supermarket freezer:
* Strawberry Banana
* Half Baked
* Chocolate Fudge Brownie
* Cherry Garcia
I purchased a pint of Half Baked (regular price $4.19 at Lucky’s). Half Baked combines chocolate and vanilla fro-yo with fudge brownies & chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s made with skim milk and has live and active yogurt cultures.
I didn’t like it. It tastes like a lowfat ice cream version of Half Baked ice cream. I bought it because I wanted fro-yo, not ice cream. The cookie dough globs are disgusting – gritty, soft and sickeningly sweet. The brownies aren’t quite as offensive. It’s a product for ice cream lovers and the curious, and perhaps somewhat health conscious.
Apparently the Ben & Jerry Scoop shops carry additional fro-yo flavors (Black Raspberry and Vanilla) not sold in supermarkets.
2 stars (out of 5) for their Half Baked FroYo.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
