Cookie Dough S'wich Up
There are so many chocolate chip cookies in this thing, I'm skeptical as to whether there's room for the vanilla ice cream. Here's the rundown: chocolatey cookie sandwiches, chocolatey cookie swirl, and cookie dough chunks. This makes our Cookie Core ice creams seem to be seriously lacking in cookie.
Vanilla Pecan Blondie
Walmart recently debuted an exclusive, nut-heavy Pecan Sticky Buns flavor that featured pecans and sticky bun dough, but Austria's version with cake in it sounds a little tastier. Because cake is tasty, you see! Germany's neighbor to the south took vanilla ice cream, and added caramelized pecan, salted caramel, and pieces of fondant cake.

With the proliferation of sea salt caramel ice creams on the market, you'd think the US had room for another flavor loaded with caramel. But apparently caramel ice cream with caramel swirl and almonds isn't good enough for us. Maybe if we refuse dessert a few nights, we'll get our message across that we're not happy with this.
The words "Murasaki Imotion" likely don't make you hungry in any way, but enough people who've visited B&J's first scoop shop in Japan have been eating up this concoction made specifically for that one store. Next time you're in Japan, consider ordering purple sweet potato ice cream with purple sweet potato chunks. Probably goes down easier after you experience some Suntory Time.
