I am having a total blogging overdose today but I just had to write about Ben & Jerry’s. Like most college students, I think of one thing when I hear the term “flip cup”. However, I firmly believe Ben & Jerry’s will change all of that. They recently released a new type of ice-cream called flipped out. I purchased two flavors (cookie dough and peanut butter). The term “flipped out” makes total sense once you learn that you actually do have to flip the cup in order to get the ice-cream out of it. I ate the peanut butter flavored one and it was delightful. I mean, I couldn’t help myself. I was walking in the grocery store and I saw the freezer section with the Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream and the flipped out one just screamed “I’m the new Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream and my flavor is cookie dough. Buy me, consume me. BUYYY me” so I did. Thankfully I also skipped dinner. I purchased both the cookie dough (which I have yet to try) and the peanut butter one. It is very, very peanutbuttery but the fact that there was pre-melted fudge in it made it worthwhile. I couldn’t stand the boring look of the ice-cream, so I added a few things to make it look more appetizing. Take a look:

As you can see above, there are oatmeal cookies on the plate too. I baked them myself, mostly due to the fact that I did not feel like doing anything today (hence my attire below) but at the same time, I had to be somewhat productive. The recipe I used can be found here. I did ad a little bit of nutmeg to it though but that’s the only change in the recipe.
