Robin Recommends: The Ultimate Combination

When I was pregnant, I became pretty much obsessed with ice cream. I had to have it every night before bed, and I am pretty sure I have now tasted every kind of ice cream commercially available at Super Target, Whole Foods and Fiesta.

Because I have become such an expert, I feel very confident in what I am about to tell you. I have found the greatest ice cream experience possible. And it's not just one great flavor - it's a flavor combination so powerful that my husband and I have taken to referring to it simply as, The Ultimate Combination.

The first ingredient in The Ultimate Combination is the most crucial element - Ben & Jerry's Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream. A friend had told me about this flavor awhile back, and I had kind of blown her off at the time. Generally, if an ice cream flavor doesn't contain chocolate of some kind, I'm not interested. However, when I finally got around to trying it, it pretty much blew that theory out of the water.

For those of you who haven't yet had the pleasure of trying it, Cinnamon Bun is caramel ice cream swirled with cinnamon streusel and filled with chunks of cinnamon roll dough. One bite, and you'll be transported to the Cinnabon at the Food Court of your local mall. Only it's even better, because it's freakin' ice cream.

But it gets even awesome-er. Just as a cup of coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a cinnamon roll, if you add a scoop of Coffee Health Bar Crunch (or really any coffee-flavored ice cream), it ramps it up your bowl of ice-cream to heavenly heights. The flavors compliment each other perfectly, making it truly The Ultimate Combination.
I highly recommend that you try it the next time you're wandering the ice cream aisle. I know I won't be able to resist.

I just read this to Chis and we are making a special trip to the store just for this. My mouth is watering.

I LOVE that B&J's cinnamon bun ice cream!! We had it at Thanksgiving over apple pie. Because one dessert at a time wasn't enough, obviously.

Oh, Robin. The last thing I needed was another ice cream flavor to crave. What am I going to with you? That being said, I just spend the whole day in airports, and I have to say that the Cinnabon scent-islands are one of the few upsides to hauling two overstuffed carry-on bags through three terminals at O'Hare :)

Thanks God Robin and Mike introduced me to this special ice cream treat. It is a wonderful as she describes. But in my humble opinion, any Ben and Jerry's ice cream is head and shoulders above anyone elses. My life goal is to tour their ice cream factory in Vermont. Such lofty dreams!
