Last night after an incredibly early dinner I could suppress the hunger no longer and went raiding through the kitchen to see what I could possibly eat. Whilst scouring the freezer for food I came across an unopened tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cheesecake Brownie Cream; there was no hesitation I grabbed the tub and a spoon and off I went.
On opening the tub I was treated to a lovely cheesecake aroma; if only subtle it was delightful. Aesthetically I thought the packaging was enticing and playful. Inside it got serious. It is clear when opening a tub of Ben & Jerry’s they don’t mess around with their chunks. There was an abundance of delicious looking cheesecake brownie pieces and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in.
Personally I have never sampled ‘Cheesecake Brownies’ before and the concept was totally new to me. This should never be the case for anyone; having my 2 favourite desserts combined delivered an experience I would all too soon like to retry. The brownies were soft but the texture was definitely prominent against the smooth soft ice cream. If you have ever tried Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream before, these chunks were a creamier version filled with a delicious cheesecake centre.
The ice cream was a cheesecake flavoured ice cream and really delivered. It was smooth and as all great ice creams should be; absolutely moreish. I could really taste the lovely creaminess of the milk and the slight tinges of the lovely cheese flavours. The ice cream was thick enough to clump together when delving in to the pot but smooth enough to melt delightfully in the mouth.
The 2 combined made for a seriously moreish, luxurious ice cream with my only negative comment being about the messiness of the brownie chunks. Due to delicateness of the chunks they were easily broken apart. However this did not ruin the amazing experience of the ice cream.
I ended up devouring the whole tub; but guilt did not follow as I would happily do it again, I can’t recommend this highly enough.
