Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Caramel cheesecake

It was the last one on my list, and only available in small packages that were part of a box of different flavors. Was it because it’s disgusting, or too good to have it’s own pint? Read on to find out!caramel-cheesecake-detail

During the weekend, I bought one of the multi-packs that contained four smaller servings. This pack had two strawberry cheesecake, and two caramel cheesecake. As it happens, I had also purchased a gorgeous Japanese style sakura cheesecake to try (two cookies from Twelve Cupcakes also joined the party).

Sweetness balance: 10/10
Nothing to complain about.

Texture: 7/10
It has a bit of variety, but I can’t help the feeling of something missing.

Lives up to description: 6/10
I can taste the vanilla, the waffle cone, but the caramel swirl.. Hm. I can tell there is a slight hint there, but I would have loved it more pronounced. You can’t see the swirl at all.

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 8/10
It’s a great flavor, no doubt. Cheesecake and caramel is an excellent combo! It would be totally awesome if something would stand out a bit more though. It’s good, but it doesn’t quite reach the excellent finish line. Room for improvement!

Overall summary: 31/40 points, which equals a 78% rating. Recommended.
