Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Boom chocolatta! Cookie core

The mission continues! Since coming to Singapore, I’ve tried almost all of the flavors. It was time to go teeth deep into Boom chocolatta cookie core. How well did it live up to the hype? Read on to find out.

Sweetness balance: 5/10
I think it’s too bitter.

Texture: 5/10
This one is difficult to subscribe, but the cookie core was almost like sand. I thought it was way too grainy. The rest of the ice cream was good though! I usually like their core series.

Lives up to description: 6/10
Wait, there is caramel in there? Couldn’t find it.

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 3/10
I must conclude that this is the first Ben & Jerry’s flavor I really dislike. Usually, I can finish all of them, but it was just something about this one that I found off putting. Something in the taste seemed chemical. Maybe it’s because I’m not a fan of mocha? I though the mocha didn’t pair nicely with the other flavors. And the cookie core was below their usual standard. Too bad! I could only finish a few spoons.

Overall summary: 19/40 points, which equals a 47% rating. Don’t 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"
