Scoop 61: Ben and Jerry’s Marsha Marsha Marshamallow

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on July 26, 2006

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.  Can’t you just hear that screechy voice playing over and over in your head?  Maybe that’s just me.  I’m really not sure what Marsha Brady has to do with marshmallows or s’mores.  Honestly, the folks at Ben and Jerry’s are getting a little desperate with this one.  Does she really deserve an ice cream flavor named after her?

Well, it’s not one I would want named after me.  It’s not all that impressive.  It reminds me a lot of the chocolate ice cream I had at Larry’s—a lot of flair, but not that much different than plain chocolate ice cream.  The chocolate ice cream is so rich it overpowers everything else.  The marshmallow only dulls the chocolate flavor a little and adds an interesting texture.  The graham cracker isn’t bad, it’s just scarce.  And the chocolate fudge chunks.  Seriously, what is wrong with those people at B&J’s???  They put fudge chunks in everything these days.  I’m really sick of the fudge chunks.  Put them in Cherry Garcia, but let’s leave it at that.  To sum it up, if you want some good chocolate ice cream, with a variety of textures (in a good way), then you’d like Marsha Marsha Marshamallow.  But if you’re looking for something that tastes like marshmallows or s’mores then you’re on your own.
