Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Keep caramel and cookie on

Boom! Just as I was finished trying and reviewing all the flavors of Singapore that I’ve never had, B&J hit me right in the solar plexus with a new one: Keep caramel and cookie on! Can it be a serious contender to the amazing Red Velvet, or vanilla caramel fudge..? Read on to find out.

Caramel Malt Ice Cream with Shortbread Cookies, Fudge Flakes & Caramel Swirls

 

Sweetness balance: 8/10
Sweet. Maybe just 2% too sweet.

Texture: 8/10
Good! Nice mix of elements, easy to eat.

Lives up to description: 7/10
I can taste all the elements, but the shortbread is very difficult to spot. Too weak presence from that element.

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 7/10
It’s promising! Not a heavy hit home run, but definitely good. Could consider buying it again!

Overall summary: 30/40 points, which equals a 75% rating. I recommend trying it!
