Tested: B&J’s Cotton Candy

So, I’m on a personal mission here in Singapore to try all of the flavors that I haven’t seen before. Here is my honest review of Ben & Jerry’s Cotton candy!

cotton candy

Sweetness balance: 8/10
It’s pretty well balanced this one. Not too overly sweet, just about right on point.

Texture: 5/10
A middle grade here. I couldn’t discern anything special about the texture, kind of like plain vanilla ice cream, a bit boring.

Lives up to description: 3/10
The flavor is good! But does it taste like cotton candy? Not in my opinion, at least not like how I remember cotton candy tasting as a kid. The flavor is sweet, vanilla-ish, and candy-is. Kind of undefinable. Just not like the cotton candy I remember.

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 4/10
Good idea – but fails on execution. Boring texture, and flavor doesn’t quite live up.

Overall summary: 20/40 points, which equals an average of 5/10.  Try a spoon from somebody else, but not wort buying a pint (at least not here in Singapore where they cost about 16$).

Life is an adventure! I believe in participating in life - not standing on the side and watching it. Here I will write about all my passions, big and small. Follow my exciting trips around the world as well as my almost normal days at home, wherever it may be at the moment.. If you like inspiration, travel, challenges, training, fashion, self improvement, culture, food and gear - look no further! So to all my stalkers, congratulations! Now you can enjoy watching my life closely at home with your computer, those cold nights with binoculars aimed at my window are finally over. I'll finish my first post by quoting Bilbo (a character in J.R.R Tolkien's The lord of the rings) with a line that ever since I heard it as a child (about 2 years ago) has left a trace in my memory: " It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to"
