Texas Has an Exclusive Flavor of Ben & Jerry’s – Have You Had It?
Just how special is Texas? Well, does every state have its own Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor that can only be found within its own borders? Truth be told, I'm not really sure, but what I do know is that there is a flavor of ice cream that you can only find in the Lone Star State.
Ben & Jerry's is known for creating some one of a kind flavors based on pop culture's biggest names and brands. For instance, "Cherry Garcia" get's its name from Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. There's Netflix & Chill'd, and even Chance the Rapper has his own flavor, as does Jimmy Fallon with "The Tonight Dough." If Fallon can get his own flavor, then you know Texas deserves its own.
Ben & Jerry Do Texas
So if it were up to you, what flavor would you suggest Ben & Jerry give Texas? BBQ ice cream? That sounds disgusting and not very appealing, and neither does queso flavored ice cream for that matter. But you know what does sound pretty good? Pecan, bourbon, and whiskey.
Ben & Jerry's Bourbon Pecan Pie
According to Tasting Table, Ben & Jerry hit the streets across Texas and tested out two different flavors: Bourbon Pecan Pie and Bar-B-Que Peach with ancho chili-infused caramel sauce. A whopping majority chose the Bourbon Pecan Pie.
The right choice indeed. According the Ben & Jerry's site, the Bourbon Pecan Pie is loaded with buttery bourbon ice cream and pecans along with shortbread cookie pieces and a whiskey caramel swirl.
A Texas worthy combination for sure. As I mentioned earlier, it's only available in Texas. Are you drooling yet?
So, I'm heading to the grocery store to stock up.
