Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey Ice Cream Review

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on December 18, 2006

Last night I was at a friend’s helping him pack for his move to the Netherlands next week.  He had to run out and buy more packing tape and guess what- he came back with some ice cream!  It’s been a long long time since I’ve had Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey.  I used to order it accidentally thinking it was Chubby Hubby (they sound kind of similar).  I’ve never been a huge fan of banana flavored things.  I like bananas, just not anything that’s flavored like banana.  So, I haven’t purchased Chunky Monkey in awhile.  But, I actually really enjoyed it last night.  It won’t ever be one of my favorites, but it’s not as bad as I remembered.  The banana ice cream is smooth and there are lots of chocolate chunks.  The only disappointment was the lack of whole banana chunks.  I like chunks of banana and there just weren’t enough.  If you like bananas definitely give Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey a try.

I rarely have cravings for banana flavored ice creams and I don’t even like banana split sundaes… but the only exception for banana and ice cream is B&J’s Chunky Monkey and a fresh tasting banana ice cream from a Chinese ice cream shoppe. Chunky Monkey doesn’t have such a strong artificial banana taste and I think the added nuts and chocolate chunks are perfect. Chunky Monkey is one of the few B&J flavors that I like. It’s sad how all the unique flavors have died to the B&J’s graveyard…now all there is left are plain chocolate and plain vanilla base with a lot of sweet fillings that are just too overwhelming. In the end, most of the flavors taste all the same to me…it’s just not “clean” enough. It’s all about the add-ins, sauces, and chunks of this and that. It’s boring and too sweet! I miss WHITE RUSSIAN!!
