The holidays just got a bit more cheerful -- Ben & Jerry's is releasing a new Peanut Butter Half Baked ice cream for a limited time (until America collectively inhales it all). Essentially, those dairy wizards took the formula for regular Half Baked, which has been on the Ben & Jerry's roster for 15 years(!!!), and substituted all the vanilla for peanut butter. Whoa.
The official flavor profile is "chocolate & peanut butter ice creams mixed with gobs of peanut butter cookie dough & fudge brownies". It's not available everywhere, though, so you should probably consult the Ben & Jerry's Limited Batch Locator to find where you can pick up a pint. And do it soon.
