The Barenaked Ladies Will Make You Sick (From Sugar Shock)

May 14th, 2009 // 10 Comments

The list of add-ins for the Barenaked Ladies-branded Ben & Jerry’s flavor, “If I Had 1,000,000 Flavours,” has more syllables than the verses for “One Week”:


chocolate
vanilla
chocolate-covered toffee
white chocolate chunks
peanut butter cups
chocolate-covered almonds


I am a staunch anti-white-chocolatist myself, and I don’t know if the presence of peanut butter cups can mitigate the fact that there will be a bunch of chunks of solidified vanilla body wash within. Although it may be a moot point: If I Had… looks to be the first Canada-only flavo(u)r in the Ben & Jerry’s repetoire. C’mon, guys, you really couldn’t call something Great White North?

  1. Love white chocolate. Rather to my surprise, I will try this.

    None of the vanity flavors will ever beat Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream, however. And no B&J flavor, period, will ever top Rainforest Crunch.

  2. @Chris Molanphy: You’re totally right on Americone Dream, but nothing will ever top Rainforest Crunch? Them’s fighting words, at least as long as Half Baked is around.

  3. I like white chocolate too, and the ice cream is okay as well.

  4. @Poubelle: Important disclaimer: I don’t like chocolate ice cream. Bits of chocolate in my ‘scream are okay, but I am a weirdo in general when it comes to choco-product.

    Hence, RF Crunch is as good as it gets for someone of my leanings. Also explains my tolerance for white chocolate, which even I admit is a bastard product (but one I love).

  5. I recently tried B&J’s “Cake Batter” flavor…and it’s pretty much crack cocaine for me now.

  6. Half-Baked Frozen Yogurt is so good that I have to check the container to make sure it’s not ice cream. Wow. That sounded like ad copy.

  7. @Chris Molanphy: Well, that’s understandable. I normally prefer vanilla to chocolate ice cream, but I make exceptions.

    @MayhemintheHood: That is probably my second-favorite, after Half-Baked. What is it about raw dough in ice cream that’s so amazing, anyway?

    @Lucas Jensen: I might need to try that. Just to verify that you’re not exaggerating.

    (why I can’t I reply to more than one person anymore?)

    Topic: I like to eat my ice cream while listening to my music. Last summer I discovered Jarvis’s album goes great with gelato.

  8. @Poubelle:
    No, the best flavor for my money is Creme Brulee. Because it tastes EXACTLY like creme brulee, except frozen. Brilliant.

  9. @MayhemintheHood: As a heavily pregnant woman who has lived on virtually nothing but ice cream for the past 8 months, I heartily agree.

    That said, the only things I hate more than Barenaked Ladies are cancer and the Holocaust.

  10. @anibundel: Re: the Creme Brulee. In the create a flavor contest of a few years back, my entry was called “Creme de la Creme Brulee” which was a snappy title, I thought. I didn’t win, but a couple years later: POW! Creme Brulee. They totally got that idea from me.
