NYC Trip Review #9 – Ben & Jerry’s at Rockefeller Center
Josh and I went to Rockefeller Center on our last morning and visited Top of the Rock Observation Deck. It is relatively close to the Empire State Building and people have said that the views are better at Top of the Rock, so we figured that we’d try it out. People were right. The views were amazing. After we came back down to reality, we were hungry, so we stopped at the Ben & Jerry’s at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (anyone who watches the show 30 Rock will understand). Lucky for us, this Ben & Jerry’s was one that actually carries Elton John’s signature flavor that I have been dying to try out since it came out last year. I was jealous that it was only being distributed in the Northeast because it sounded awesome. We ordered a scoop of Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road (which was apparently only supposed to be available in the Vermont Scoop Shops from July 18th through July 25th, 2008, but had apparently made an appearance in NYC). It’s chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle and white chocolate chunks. It was delicious. I only wish it was more widely available. We also got a scoop of Triple Caramel Chunk (but you can’t see it in the pictures). Both flavors were great, but the Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road was superb.
