I had really high hopes for this new drink, because I generally love anything that’s flavored like banana, especially ice cream. However, I can’t enjoy the normal Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream because I have problems eating solid chocolate (makes me sick!), so I was really excited to see this milkshake.
Unfortunately, it was fucking AWFUL. It has the viscosity of brownie batter and tastes neither like banana or chocolate; In fact, it’s hard to tell what it tastes like, because it’s just so cloyingly sweet. I had a hard time finishing the bottle (which is the same size as a Starbucks bottled Frappucino) because after a while it was just like downing the sugary snot of some giant flu-ridden gingerbread man.
This drink might be better if it were partially frozen like a real milkshake, but the bottle says “DO NOT FREEZE ME,” so maybe that’s not a good idea. But neither was trying this thing in the first place.
Verdict: */***** (yech!)
