Ben & Jerry's puts peanut butter cookie dough into a new ice cream

Ben & Jerry's is trying to blow your mind with new Peanut Butter Half Baked ice cream flavor

What could make a scoop of Ben & Jerry's Half Baked ice cream even better? Peanut butter. 

The Vermont-based ice cream company has released a new Peanut Butter Half Baked flavor for the holidays. It's a combination of chocolate and peanut butter ice creams with pieces of peanut butter cookie dough and fudge brownies. 

"Tis the season for togetherness," Ben & Jerry's "flavor guru" Peter Lind said in a statement. "So we thought why not be peanut buttery and chocolaty togetherness?"

We're glad you asked that very important question, Mr. Lind. 

The new flavor is available at stores nationwide, but only for a limited time. 

The original Half Baked was released 15 years ago and includes chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate fudge brownie ice creams. It's currently the company's best-selling ice cream, taking the top spot from Cherry Garcia last year. 

I like my ice cream in a waffle cone, with rainbow sprinkles. Follow me on Twitter @Jenn_Harris_.
