The Internet blew up this past week about Ben & Jerry’s latest creamery creation — cores. Now, I know what you’re probably thinking. Cores don’t always get the best rap, but this kind of core is a game changer. Images of browned apple cores laying in the garbage often to come to mind. But stop right there! It’s time to appreciate cores, and here’s why.
The Ben & Jerry’s Cores family has welcomed three new flavors: Hazed & Confused, Peanut Butter Fudge, That’s My Jam and Salted Caramel. The three heavenly pints include one or more original Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and a core of either fudge, caramel or jam. Some may say this is a gift from the gods, and I will readily agree.
As a longtime fan of the Karamel Sutra core ice cream, I can contest that these flavors are nothing but game changers. Ben & Jerry’s announced these decadent pints via Twitter, and boy did they get an overwhelming response with more than 3,000 retweets and 2,000 favorites.

All I have to say is this is not helping me look good in a bikini with spring break fastly approaching. But get them while you can! With all the attention they have been receiving, they are surely to be flying off shelves across the country.
