Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Brownie batter core

I’m rapidly approaching the end of my project to try all the flavors that I don’t have at home. Now, it’s only two or three left on the list! The most recent flavor I got my hands on was Brownie Batter Core. Did it deliver? Read on to find out.

Sweetness balance: 7/10
Quite good, nothing to complain about really, other than my usual opinion that B&J’s chocolate ice cream is too bitter.

Texture: 8/10
Nice! Reminds very much of the other core textures. Smooth, with some contrasting elements.

Lives up to description: 6/10
Hmm, not sure about this one. The brownie batter tastes almost exactly like regular chocolate sauce. I’d be very surprised if it actually turns into a brownie if oven baked. Might have to try and see 🙂 Tastes good though, but I’m hesitant about the accuracy of description. Is it really brownie batter..?

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 7/10
I’m not disappointed. I usually like all B&J’s core flavors. A little conservative perhaps, but it works.

Overall summary: 28/40 points, which equals a 70% rating. Recommended.
