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.
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!
