Jeni’s Brown Butter Almond Brittle

Brown butter almond candy crushed into buttercream ice cream


I couldn’t help myself but to eat half the carton right off the bat. This truly left me wanting to come back for more after each spoonful of blissful gluttony.


My Interpretation: 

  • The ice cream itself didn’t give me “buttercream” vibes, it very much so felt more like an almond extract ice cream base (which I loved)
  • Dotted pleasantly throughout with the tiniest toffee bits. I would be curious to see a rendition or play on this with bigger toffee bites!

My Ratings:

  • Trueness to name: 8/10 – pretty spot on, minus the buttercream
  • Willingness to buy again: 10/10 – would also get this in the Jeni’s shop without hesitation 
  • Chunkiness: N/A – it has “bits” but wouldn’t consider this a chunky ice cream
  • Creaminess/Consistency: 10/10 – the pictures speak a thousand words. It’s as creamy as it looks!
  • Overall: 8.5/10 – very very solid ice cream, ranking high for my tastebuds!

I would give this a go if you’re a fan of almond extract flavoring!

Haagen-Dazs HEAVEN Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel


This ice cream needs to sit out for a few minutes before enjoying. It’s their “healthy” take on a classic ice cream combo!


My Interpretation: 

  • I was impressed by the chocolate flavor. It reminded me of every chocolate ice cream I had growing up as a child, so it won nostalgia points.
  • The caramel was hard to come by, and by hard to come by I mean non-existent. They really dropped the ball on that.

My Ratings:

  • Trueness to name: 2/10 – Basically was just a chocolate ice cream
  • Willingness to buy again: 2/10 – If I was looking for a “light” version of chocolate ice cream, this would be my go to
  • Chunkiness: N/A
  • Creaminess/Consistency: 7/10 – needs to sit out, which is just good for me to practice my patience!
  • Overall: 6/10 – It’s not bad, it just doesn’t live up to it’s name!

If you just want a plan light version of chocolate ice cream, this is a good option!

Ben & Jerry’s Netflix & Chilll’d

Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Sweet & Salty Pretzel Swirls & Fudge Brownie



After countless recommendations, I had to see for myself if this was worth the hype!


My Interpretation: 

  • My immediate thought was that this ice cream had a weird, grainy consistency.
  • This lacked flavor. The peanut butter was so faint, there were 3 lackluster brownies throughout the whole pint, and the pretzel swirl was more so just random pockets of salt throughout.

My Ratings:

  • Trueness to name: 0/10 – I feel like Ben & Jerry’s was trying to be “fun and quirky” but this was just a flop.
  • Willingness to buy again: 0/10 – I would much rather run the gamble of trying a brand new ice cream that I may hate than purchase this one again
  • Chunkiness: 2/10 – three brownies in the whole pint… disappointing is an understatement
  • Creaminess/Consistency: 5/10 – it’s grainy. If anything this is a high rating. It gets points for being able to eat it straight from the freezer!
  • Overall: 4/10 – These are mostly pity points because everyone else seems to love it so much. It just doesn’t tick any boxes for me.

If you love disappointment, this is for you.
