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.
