The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Ben & Jerrys constantly introduces new ice cream flavors, but now the company has come up with a new concept: the Core. Each Core pint contains two flavors separated by a firm filling of fudge, jam or caramel.

February brings four Cores:

Hazed & Confused: chocolate and hazelnut ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut-fudge core

Thats My Jam: raspberry and chocolate ice creams with fudge chips and a raspberry core

Peanut Butter Fudge: chocolate and peanut butter ice creams with mini peanut butter cups and a peanut butter fudge core

Salted Caramel: sweet-cream ice cream with blonde brownies and a salty caramel core (This last variety only has the one ice-cream flavor.)

When it comes to serving, using a scoop wont capture the configuration of the container the two flavors side by side, a cylinder of filling tunneling down the bulleye. Id be more inclined to lay the pint on its side and, using a heavy knife, slice right through the cardboard so that everyone gets a perfect ring. If you dont finish the whole pint, cover the exposed top with plastic wrap and pop back into the freezer.

All four Cores are made with ingredients that are fair trade and GMO-free. Suggested retail price is $4.39 per pint. More information at benjerry.com.
