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 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.
