What's your favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry's?

For those who have tasted Cholov Yisrael Ben & Jerry's in Israel (or Cholov Stam anywhere else, for that matter), what's your favorite flavor?

Mine is Dulce de Leche. :)

Then you really need to go to Buenos Aires.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

This is true. :)

But FWIU, July is not exactly the best time of year, is it?

Harder to enjoy Ice Cream in the cold ;)
Then again it doesn't get that cold that it should matter and Iguazu should be nice that time of year.

Taking that into consideration, I'd say go for it!

If you're a foodie and into dulce de leche you're gonna love it, I guarantee it.  Several awesome Ice Cream shops and bakeries to go crazy with. 

Just get there while Asian is still around, it seemed very empty.  Will be a shame to lose the best kosher restaurant in the world :'(

According to the OU some of the Ben and Jerry's products are already Cholov Yisroel even though it's not on the label. Can't attach the PDF cuz it's too big but PM and I'll email it to you

The dulce de leche is good but super sweet.  I can only eat a bite.

In the US when I have a fudgy chocolate craving I enjoy the chocolate fudge brownie flavor once in a while.

In Israel we go to and buy Ben and Jerrys often. I usually stick with vanilla or chocolate or something plain.  But I love having good ice cream when I'm there. Especially during Pesach :)


I like Haagen Dasz better.
