Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Glastonberry Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Glastonberry
Posted: 14:00 Thu 29-Jun-2006. Price: 4.19. Location: Blockbuster, Peterborough. Nutritional unusualness: 995kJ/ 240kcal, 3.5g Protein, 28g Carbohydrate, 12.5g Fat, all per 100g (411g tub).
"John Coxon" reports: This is an ice cream which has been released as a limited edition by our favourite manufacturer, Ben and Jerry's. It's described as "Vanilla... with Fudge Brownies and Raspberry Swirls" - this is perfectly accurate, but I found the brownies were mostly at the top and the swirls mostly at the bottom - I don't know how widespread that will be. "Chris" said that this was the same flavour as an older US one, and the brownies were quite small - however, this must be a new, albeit similar, flavour, since the brownies are reasonably big (definitely overlapping the edges of a teaspoon, for instance) and although they are thin, it takes a definite couple of seconds to chew your way through one, which gives it some substance. Another criticism, however - the raspberry could be less sweet, as the aftertaste isn't a huge plus. This ice cream is only available in Blockbuster stores and you can go to benjerry.co.uk to find your nearest store selling the product.

...Congrats to first-time spotter "John Coxon" for this impressively comprehensive sighting - though "caveat emptor" regarding the online Blockbuster finder, as there wasn't any sign of it in the London Forest Hill branch when I checked the other week. Plus, if this is a UK rebrand of the US Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies, that kind of contradicts B+J's claim that it was suggested by "Geoffrey Taylor, winner of our competition to find a new flavour" - they even have the same packaging!

Comment: Once again unimpressed with B+Js distribution of new products. Been checking each week at my local B+J special agent store (which also has a blockbuster nextdoor). No doubt they'll have these when I get round to visiting this week...just hope these have been worth the wait.
