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.

Rudolph and Frosty Christmas in July (1979) Review

p4322_d_v7_aa

Before I sat down and watched this movie i’m not gonna┬álie┬áI was quite worried that my experience would be a complete repeat of the last review, before watching the film I decided to do a bit of research and this is when I found out that it was a Rankin/Bass production which quickly turned my worries into excitement and nostalgia.

For those who are not familiar with Rankin/Bass they are a small production company that made their fortune in the early 1960’s until the late 1980’s making many different types of animated films and movies based on well known stories and fairy tales, they made a lot of Christmas related movies during their most successful years some of the most popular ones to my knowledge are Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer , Santa Claus is Comin to Town and Jack Frost all of these films were made using traditional Stop-Motion animation but they made many other films using standard animation and live action recordings.

I don’t know how I managed to skip┬áRudolph and Frosty┬áChristmas in July as a kid because it’s definitely a very special movie, I was very surprised when I was watching this because I started to notice that almost every character from the other Rankin/Bass Christmas movies made before this one had some sort of appearance in this movie and from doing some extensive research I found out that for the most part they even used to original voice cast for each character which was a really cool nod to the other movies and more importantly their fans.

This is Lady Boreal who is a very important character in this Christmas Special as she is the person who gave Rudolph his red nose, the fog Rudolph’s nose was used to clear on that one foggy Christmas Eve was not a just a fog but was instead a fog of evil snow dragons sent by the Wizard Winterbolt.

Rudolph’s Magic Nose has been protecting Santa from Winterbolt for years and now Winterbolt has finally had enough, he’s sick of Santa ruling the north pole and so he try’s to find a way to put out Rudolph’s nose for good.

The rest of the movie is just Frosty and Rudolph trying to defeat Winterbolt, they meet their friend who is an ice-cream man, Rudolph and Frosty join the circus and a lack luster battle against Winterbolt pursues.

Frosty and Rudolph Christmas in July is not that great which is real shame because a lot of the other Rankin/Bass movies are fantastic and don’t get me wrong it has the charm and the perfect animation to make a wonderful and innocent family Christmas movie, the big problem is that it doesn’t make a lot of sense and too often it feels like┬áit only existed so that Rankin/Bass could put all of these characters in one movie, the plot wasn’t that interesting compared the other Rankin/Bass films but in the movies defense I have had to sit through a lot worse movies during the holidays.

Thanks for reading my Review of Rudolph and Frosty Christmas in July.

The next Christmas movie I will review is
