Ben & Jerry’s – Fairly Nuts Ice Cream (Sainsbury’s)
I think it is fair to say that one of my favourite flavours is nuts. Ideally nuts with chocolate, but nuts and caramel is by no means a bad thing. This ice cream combines a vanilla based ice cream, with nut clusters, and caramel sauce, so it certainly sounds like a winning combination.
The ice cream is wonderfully creamy, and the caramel is surprisingly flavoursome, without being overly sweet. The best things here though are the nut clusters. They are crunchy as they have sizable pieces of nuts, the coating is gorgeous though, adding a softer texture and a good hint of hazelnut. Wow, Ben and Jerry’s have completely nailed the subtle flavour of nut, caramel and vanilla and made a fantastic ice cream.
Also the ice cream is named ‘Fairly Nuts’ as it is in their fair-trade range too, so there is no guilt in buying it.
I always think that companies that have a specific fair trade range, sound like their other items aren’t fair trade? Or perhaps they are just working towards getting them approved (hope so).
