Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week, and I celebrated with two different ice creams that incorporated peanut butter and chocolate. The Safeway Select ice cream (shown in dish at right) contained broken up chunks of peanut butter cups, evoking childhood memories of favorite chocolate candy.
The second ice cream was "What a Cluster" ice cream from Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream -- a company known for its clever product names. And, while What a Cluster did have a smidge of cocoa in it -- qualifying it as a chocolate item -- I chose this cold, sweet treat for its clever title. What a Cluster ice cream was a melange of peanut butter ice cream, caramel cluster pieces, marshmallow swirls and "peanut buttery swirls."
