Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Truffle Kerfuffle

I’m more than half way through my mission here in Singapore to test a lot of Ben & Jerry’s flavors that we don’t have in my home country  Here is my review of Truffle Kerfuffle! Can it stand a chance against the two leading flavors Oat of this swirled and Red velvet cake?

Sweetness balance: 7/10
It’s decent. Maybe could use just a tad more sweetness.

Texture: 6/10
It’s very chunky, almost too chunky. I personally have loved to have some softer elements in the mix to create better balance.

Lives up to description: 8/10
I can taste all the elements, but I do feel that the swirl lacks a bit of punch, it could be pronounced more!

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 7/10
I like it! Good variation of elements that match each other. I feel it’s right on the edge between conservative and daring. A safe bet, but not thrilling either. Maybe that’s the only drawback.

Overall summary: 28/40 points, which equals a 70% rating. Not one of the highest rankers but still worth 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"
