Tested: Ben & Jerry’s Coconut Seven Layer Bar

I was actually finished trying and reviewing all the flavors of Singapore that I’ve never had. But I still had two weeks left in Singapore which meant room for trying two more flavors. I knew that B&J recently developed non-dairy flavors, but I hadn’t tried any of them yet. The question I was asking myself was if it was worth it? Technically it isn’t even ice cream, since it doesn’t contain any cream (non-dairy). So if I tried one of them, would they still be allowed to compete against the other “real” ice creams on my list? Only one way to find out right.. I decided to pull the trigger on the flavor called Coconut seven layer bar. Good.? Read on to find out.

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

Texture: 9/10
Very chunky, I like it!

Lives up to description: 10/10
Perfect execution. I can taste all the elements.

Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 10/10
I must conclude that I’m VERY impressed. Not only is it good – it’s actually better than most of their real ice cream flavors! It’s bold, adventurous, exciting, tropical – it’s got the works folks. From past experience, vegan & non-dairy version of popular foodstuffs often taste like shit, but B&J’s pulled of a miracle on this one.

Overall summary: 37/40 points, which equals a 93% rating. Highest rating so far! Definitely recommend it. I would consider buying it over any of their flavors. And I probably will..

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"
