Archer Farm's Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream

One of Taste Tester’s favorite desserts is unquestionably ice cream, or more accurately: milkshakes. You may even remember that we went on a little quest last year to find the best chocolate peanut butter milkshakes around. Well, like many people out there, we are trying to be a little more economical these days and have been trying to eat out a little less. This change applies to sweets as well, not just takeout.

We slowly started weaning ourselves off frequent Cold Stone milkshakes and quickly got into Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby. Because it’s sold at the corner store just feet from our apartment, you can imagine that it was a frequent purchase. More recently though, I went out looking for another convenient option and came across Archer Farm’s Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream.

I have come to like the few Archer Farm’s products I’ve tried and decided to give it a whirl. It’s pretty good for store-bought ice cream, though not quite as rich as Ben & Jerry’s. The key is definitely to let it sit for a few minutes after taking it out of the freezer (though I guess that probably applies to all ice cream, right?). That way you can actually taste the chocolate and not just taste how cold it is. The best bites are definitely the ones with big hunks of peanut butter in them. I bet this flavor would be even better with a bit of caramel sauce drizzled over it. Mmm. It may not be quite as rich and deliciously unhealthy as our favorite chocolate peanut butter Cold Stone shake, but it’s tasty enough to stifle the cravings.

I enjoyed the reviews of this ice cream on the Target website as 2 out of 4 of the reviewers are begging Target to make sure it stays well-stocked in their local store. One review went into a bit more detail about the flavor stating, “No annoying little peanut butter cups, no cloyingly sweet peanut butter. Just the simple sublime combination of rich roasted peanut butter and creamy cool chocolate ice cream.”

For a convenient fix that requires no time in the kitchen, pick up some of Archer Farm’s Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream at your local Target and join me in accepting that it’s okay to be lazy some of the time!

  • After reading your review, I went out and bought the ice cream when I did the groceries yesterday. It’s so good I’m debating whether to share it with my kids or keep it all to myself! :)

  • Peanut Butter ice cream, I just heard someone the other day saying that peanut butter is overrated. I could have smacked them, but this Archer Farms product has cooled my nerves. I have to go to Target now to see if they have this. If they don’t I am going to have to slap them.

  • I love this ice cream, but my Target is out of it a lot more often than they have it in stock. I go every Thursday. Anywhere else it is sold, or can we start having it stocked more at the store?
