I know that German Chocolate Cake (much like Red Velvet and other types of cake) is not a favorite with everyone, but I love it. I love chocolate. I love coconut (thanks for the “I like coconut” gene, Mom!). I even love whatever it is that makes sugar and evaporated milk turn into that crazy caramelly goodness in the frosting. A lot. So when Widge turned his nose up at the idea of ice cream with coconut in it–his loss, I felt that I had to step in and take one for the team. And so Fair Goodness Cake ice cream entered my life.
The folks at Ben & Jerry’s describe this ice cream as “Chocolate Ice Cream with German Chocolate Cake Pieces and a Coconut-Caramel Swirl.” It also gets its name from the fact that it contains Fair Trade cocoa, coconut, and vanilla, which is pretty cool.
