Here is what I was thinking chocolate ice cream with peanut butter in it. Kind of like peanut butter swirls, like they have caramel swirls.
Now I have seen chocolate ice cream that has peanut butter cups in it, but that isn’t what I mean. I went to four different stores and two ice cream shops and they didn’t have that. All they have is basically chocolate ice creams with peanut butter cups broken and mixed into it.
(Damn did it again, wrong forum. I’ll ask the mod to move it. My apologies)
You may be having trouble finding any right now, though, due to the peanut butter recall due to contamination by Salmonella. Jars of peanut butter are safe, but many peanut-butter containing products like ice cream have been recalled and taken off of shelves in stores.
Publix makes it, or at least they did. Usually their store brand is wonderful, but that flavor was actually so repulsive even the kids wouldn’t eat it. I emailed Publix and they sent me some coupons for ice cream.
It was something about the peanut butter itself. Just didn’t taste right at all (and this was over a year ago, so not salmonella).
Wouldn’t it be easy to make using chocolate ice cream and peanut butter? I only ask because my kids and I used to make non-existent ice creams all the time when they were young. Some of them are now available.
Edy’s used to make one that is exactly what the OP is describing, chocolate ice cream with peanut-butter swirls in it. I worked in an ice-cream shop about five years ago, and it was our top seller for adults. After a quick check of the Edy’s website, I don’t know if they make it any more, though.
I recently ran across and tried Amish Peanut Butter for the first time. It is really good and I’m sure would go really good over chocolate ice cream. Its qualities might even make it good as a swirl to add to stor bought ice cream- maybe mix it into slightly melted ice cream and refreeze. (Then again I’m not sure if it will freeze… so maybe not).
Normally it is drizzled on fresh bread and eaten that way- and it is really, really, good I do attest- but it reminds me of the Peanut butter syrup you would get on a sundae or mixed into a shake at a good Dairy Queen.
Peanut butter and Marshmallow fluff… what’s not to like? The first recipe is the standard one that I see everywhere. But the second recipe matches more closely what I believe I ate, I could definitely taste brown sugar in there.

When I worked at Ben & Jerry’s a couple years back, we had Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl (introduced along with three other flavors as a special promotion), which was pretty much what you describe and absolutely fucking incredible.
I was sad to learn, when I just googled it, that it was retired shortly after I stopped working there and was never available for purchase in stores, only in scoop shops.
