Three Twins Cherry Chocolate Chunk
This completely organic pick is airy and fruit forward with just enough dark cacao to satisfy chocolate cravings.

Talenti Salted Peanut Caramel Gelato
We’re nuts over the large roasted peanut halves and thick salted caramel swirls in this home run.

Ben & Jerry’s Spectacular Speculoos Cookie Core
It’s a little hard to wrap your head around a core of cookies and cookie butter running through dark caramel and vanilla ice cream, but it’s certainly not hard to eat (in one sitting). The spoonable center, made from a traditional Belgian biscuit, is slightly crunchy and tastes of caramel and gingerbread
