New Ben & Jerry's flavour always get me excited, especially ones with fancy new ingredients involved, but especially when they're on offer. Half price at Tesco, don't you know. Anyway, here is a very festive offering from the ice cream lords, Winter Berry Brownie, being a vanilla ice cream swirled with blackberries and raspberries, mixed up with chocolate brownie chunks.
Sound like a weird combination? That's because it is. The fruity swirls are quite nice, though not as flavoursome as I've come to expect from other varieties. Perhaps it's because the taste of the brownie is a strange contrast, like the two flavours are competing for dominance. The brownie certainly wins out in that respect, the chunks are pretty massive. But while it does take a little while to get used to the brownie/berry combination, I must say this was a very tasty ice cream. Fruity, chocolatey and smooth. It'll get you right in the Christmas spirit, if you normally eat berries and brownies together at Christmas.
My rating: 4/5
