- Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey Ice Cream
Banana ice cream with fudge chunks and walnuts: the nuttiest chocolatey-chunkiest concoction-gone-bananas you'll ever go ape for. This taste sensation was suggested by a college student in New Hampshire, way back in 1988. The idea seemed so perfect that we got started on it right away. Of course, we had to monkey around with bunches of test batches to get it just right, but we did, and the rest is history. Twenty-two years on we made it even sweeter with the addition of Fairtrade bananas. Today it remains one of Ben & Jerry's most iconic flavours. Every time you plunge your spoon into a bowl of Chunky Monkey you're guaranteed to scoop up huge chocolate chunks and perfectly crunchy walnuts all surrounded by impossibly smooth banana ice cream. It's a monkey's dream. Well, actually, plenty of ice cream lovers seem to think it's pretty dreamy too. Note: No monkeys were harmed in the making of this ice cream (well, okay, maybe some bananas got a little roughed up). Enjoy!
