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.

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"
