Ben & Jerry's creme brulee ice cream is intensely more faithful to its namesake dessert than the Haagen-Daz version. (They must be good what with all the letters in the names wearing funny party hats, unlike the stiffly reserved and Very Serious capital letters here on my keyboard.)

It's not just a caramel-ish swirl in a thick vanilla base -- no, there are rich veins of crunchy brown sugar. There may have actually been a blowtorch involved at some point.

Checking the ingredients, I count six different *kinds* of sugar in there. If it weren't for the egg yolks and milkfat, this would be cotton candy ice cream. crunch crunch crunch.

i went to the store in order to buy mint chocolate chip ice cream, but there wasn't any. they did have b&j mint orea cookie ice cream and the ice cream you described. i bought both. i have to say, b&j's creme brulee ice cream tastes like crack in ice cream form. the first bite was exquisite. the second was less so and by the tenth bite i thought i was gonna stroke out from the sugar rush. (maybe i should have stopped eating at the third?) i guess what i am saying is that you are the uber man if you can consume an entire container of creme brulee ice cream and live to tell about it.

but when they make peeps ice cream i will buy you several gallons. :D

I ate about half a small container, and that was indeed about 80% more than I needed in one session. This is definitely one to savor in small amounts. Less than a dozen spoonfuls is all anyone needs to get the full sugar high.

OMG peeps ice cream! that's brilliant!

agreed. It is crack. And I can't figure out the carmelized brown sugar swirl either.
