Guilty Pleasures

Ben & Jerry's Cookie Core Ice Creams Are Even Better Than You Expect

The Guilty Pleasure: Ben & Jerry's Cookie Core ice cream Where to Get It: In theory, your favorite grocery. In practice, I've only seen it at Walmart. Price: About $4, same as all the other Ben & Jerry's flavors wherever you buy them. What it Really Costs: Three times the calories to find your favorite. And entering Walmart.

Ben & Jerry's has long been a standard bearer for guilty pleasure sweets. I know it's my ice cream of choice if I'm curling up on the couch with a bad movie after a rough day.

I love that even though the eponymous duo doesn't have a hand in day-to-day operations of the company, Ben & Jerry's still has some of the most fun and innovative flavors on the market.
