Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla caramel fudge

My mission here in Singapore to test a lot of Ben & Jerry’s flavors that we don’t have in my home country continues. I got my hands on a pint of vanilla caramel fudge this weekend. Is it any good? Keep reading’!

Sweetness balance: 10/10
Nothing to add here!

Texture: 8/10
Texture is almost buttery smooth. Melts in your mouth! Doesn’t have any crunchy elements or other types of things (such as pieces of chocolate) that are common in a B&J’s pint.

Lives up to description: 7/10
I can taste the vanilla. I can taste the caramel. But where is the fudge?

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 7/10
It’s a great flavor, make no mistake about it! Playing it very safe. It kind of reminds me of the blondie brownie caramel core one, with a different texture and no elements of chocolate or blondie. The caramel they use here is excellent, really top notch. I love it! Just wish I could have been able to taste that fudge – might have to buy another pint… This is a home run for the conservative ice cream lover, but the wild novelty taster might get bored if he/she isn’t a huge caramel fan. Luckily for me – I am 🙂

Overall summary: 32/40 points, which equals a 80% rating. Buy it.

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"
