Ben & Jerry’s: Netflix and Chilled Review

Hey everyone its been about two weeks since I have uploaded and after this small break regular reviews will be coming back very soon but in the mean time I discovered a new interesting food today which I thought we could take a look together.

This is a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream that seems to have been made in collaboration with the popular streaming service Netflix, now I love Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream but I have never really spoken about it on here because a lot of people where I live know about it but I feel this particular flavour is unique enough to warrant a review.

According to the lid this ice cream consists of Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Sweet and Salty Pretzel Swirls and Brownie Pieces.

These are the ingredients I will put them in Bold here and I will state that I have taken them directly from this ice creams page on the Ben and Jerry’s website

It shouldnt be much of a suprise that its not very good for you, Ben and Jerry’s ice creams tend to be packed full of sweets and other goodies which would surely rot your teeth if you ate too much of them, but I wont let that affect my opinion as I quite enjoy sugary things anyway.

After a few tastes of the ice cream I will say that the peanut butter ice cream is really nice however, the flavour is so strong that it is hard to differentiate it from the other flavours, the only other thing you can really taste is the brownie and while there is a mild salt taste you couldn’t tell that there was pretzels in this, overall a fun idea and a surprising collaboration but I must say that Netflix and Chilled is not of my favourites by a long run.

Building a Ginger Bread House: Featuring What Maff Said

Building a Ginger Bread House so amazing that even Hansel and Gretel would be jealous

hansel and gretel

Christmas is the most beloved and celebrated holiday in existence and of course almost every aspect of Christmas is iconic, one popular aspect to Christmas is the many sweets and chocolates that you can freely consume without much guilt simply because its Christmas, I personally have always loved having an excuse to eat loads of crap and so this year me and another blogger (What Maff Said) decided to team up and build a Ginger Bread House.

Now before I begin explaining the steps we took in order to build our marvelous house, I first need to explain the most important things that allowed the magic to happen.

The Ingredients

Gingerbread (6 of 241)

The most important ingredient was the Ginger Bread House itself, yes we did buy it instead of baking, we did this mostly to save time as it took a long time to put the house together and decorate it without having to bake the ingredients as well.

other ingredients include

Cheap Chocolate Peanuts

One tube of Smarties

One bar of Milka White Chocolate

Marshmallow Biscuit Snowmen

and finally Ginger Bread Stars and Penguins which we bought more for the extra ingredients more than the ginger bread itself.

The first thing we needed to do was too construct our house,we used some icing glue that was included with the Ginger Bread House kit,this is me using my pretty swag gluing skills.

This is Maff fitting the roof on our Ginger Bread Home, he is a perfect craftsman and hes looking pretty snazzy in his Christmas Jumper.

At this point the house was looking quite nice, it was a little bear and could most definitely benefit from some tasty decorations but before that we decided that we needed to scrape away any glue that was leaking through the roof and walls.

Next we melted up some of that delicious and creamy Milka chocolate and we then spreadĀ the white chocolate on to the roof to help create a snow effect.

Once the our chocolate snow roof had hardened we decorated the base of our house with some Peanut M and M’s, we originally intended to do the whole house like this but the M and M’s were much too heavy.

Maff had Ā this brilliant idea of creating a path to our house using tiny marshmallows, in this image you can also see him starting to draw around the doors and windows with red icing to help them stand out more.

I decided to take the liberty of adding a smarty to the door knobs of each of the doors, and I also added a pattern of smarties to the top of both the front and back of the house.

And that’s it we finished our epic masterpiece, we finalized the house by adding a lot of icing sugar to the roof to give the snow some fluff, we also added two residents to our home.

Unfortunately we never had time to eat the ginger bread house but I’m sure it would have tasted delicious, if it helps we did each eat a snowman and they tasted vile.

Thanks for reading my first collaboration blog.
