Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet Cake

As you might have seen in previous posts, I’m on a mission here in Singapore to test a lot of Ben & Jerry’s flavors that we don’t have in my home country. One of the flavors that has been hardest to find is the Red Velvet Cake flavor – but in the corner of my eye, I spotted a freezer when entering a shop recently, and there it was! The only pint of Red Velvet flavor I’ve seen so far. Of course, I had to snag it!

Sweetness balance: 9/10
Great balance of sweetness. The sweet ice cream and cake pieces are nicely contrasted by the cream cheese frosting swirl.

Texture: 9/10
I love the texture! Lots of variation and a good mix of elements.

Lives up to description: 10/10
No complaints here.

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 8/10
Creative, unusual ingredients and they go very well together. A home run! The only thing missing for a full point would be a ratio of a little more cream cheese frosting.

Overall summary: 36/40 points, which equals a 90% rating. Give it a shot!

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"
