Ben & Jerry’s has released a limited batch of Cannoli ice cream, and fans are say that it’s one of their favorites!
The Christian Post reported Vermont’s famed ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s has released a new cannoli-flavored treat on Wednesday. The Limited Batch cold dessert boasts a mascarpone base with fudge and is filled with cannoli pieces, in addition to a mascarpone swirl.
“Here’s our latest take on this classic Sicilian pasty- Mascarpone Ice Cream with Fudge Covered Cannoli Pastry Shell Chunks & a Mascarpone Swirl,” explained the Burlington, VT ice cream experts in a press release. “You won’t find this cannoli in any bakery, but for a limited time you can pick some up in your grocer’s freezer. Scoop some up before it’s gone!”
Gothamist reported The new flavor replaces the ricotta with Mascarpone ice cream, with fudge covered cannoli pastry chunks and a Mascarpone swirl. Like its predecessor, it’s only going to be available for a limited time, so consider yourself warned—sooner or later it’s going to go the way of Festivus. Anticipation is already high, with the first comment on the company’s Facebook announcement wondering, “Are you guys insisting that I get fat or something?” Heh, we all know Ben & Jerry & Unilever already accomplished that goal. Now they’re simply trying to kill us.
“We made a cannoli flavor with ricotta before and it bombed,” Ben & Jerry’s explained on its Facebook page. “It was called Holy Cannoli. This is a new take on it and we think it tastes better than Holy Cannoli did. We hope you do too!”
