Get In My Mouth: Ben & Jerry’s New Core Ice Cream Flavors

One of the unexpected side effects of taking my booze intake down by, like, 75 percent is that I suddenly crave sugar like I never have before. I've never had a sweet tooth, but once I stopped putting away nearly a bottle of wine a night, my body began to crave a nightly sweet treat.
