Amidst a barrage of stressful news, it seems that our biggest comforts are pregnant Beyoncé and ice cream. To that end, Ben & Jerry’s just announced Pint Slices, a new line of chocolate-covered ice cream bars that come in single-serve packaging, making it easier than ever to dig into your favorite flavor wherever, whenever. Honestly? While I crave this kind of convenience, it also makes me a little nervous.
Like, a regular container of Ben and Jerry’s doesn’t stand a chance once it gets into my freezer. If I’d do crazy things to get my hands on a Klondike Bar, then I don’t even want to imagine how far I’d go for Pint Slices, which come in four insanely good-sounding flavors: Americone Dream (vanilla with caramel swirls and fudge-covered waffle cone pieces), Chocolate Fudge Brownie (chocolate with fudge brownie pieces), Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (vanilla, cookie dough chunks, fudge flakes) and Vanilla Peanut Butter Cup (the name speaks for itself). Sorry, childhood! Chocolate and vanilla just don’t cut it anymore.
And for those of you who don’t eat ice cream like you’re still in college (ahem, directly from the container), the individual portion size is pretty convenient too. Pint Slices are now available at most Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops, and they’ll be rolling out in grocery stores across the country soon. My advice? Start clearing freezer space now.
