Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Vanilla Toffee Crunch Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Vanilla Toffee Crunch
Posted: 16:56 Thu 14-Sep-2006. Price: 3.99. Location: Liquor Store, Totton (Southampton).
"choccieman" reports: This is odd, a new B+J's flavour that still hasn't been mentioned on their web site (I ate the tub a couple of weeks ago), normally I'm trying to hunt these things down after they've been announced (the new vanilla mentioned there is also "in the wild"). Anyway, quality as always from the B+J brand - according to the tub, until they were able to purchase broken toffee they used to chuck crates of the stuff off of ladders, maybe that was in the day before we had health and safety officers. The toffee pieces are very tasty indeed (and coated in chocolate) although there is a feeling that perhaps there aren't as many of these chunks as normal although this may be because the vanilla ice cream is rather ordinary compared to other B+J flavours.

...Cheers as ever to "choccieman", though it still seems to be taking ages for B+J to get June's Glastonberry into the shops, let alone any newer ones. Maybe parent company Unilever have been focusing on their ever-expanding Carte D'Or range instead, with 750ml tubs of Creme Brulee, Tiramisu and Panna Cotta Amaretti flavour expected to be available "from September 2006, priced 2.99".

Comment: Can't say I've seen it in a while (did they drop it last time they 're-did' their flavour branding? Creme brulee carte d'or sounds interesting have to keep an eye out for that one.

Comment: How does the Creme Brulee concept work? Is it just normal vanilla with a crunchy sugar top?

Comment: is the toffee in this ben and jerry's chewy (like brit toffee) or hard (like dime bars and american toffee)?

Comment: Like dime bars, although didn't find the pieces big enough to get really stuck in your teeth like dimes usually end up.

Comment: choccieman: It's a standard flavour in the US and it's on the US B&J site by it's name over there, Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch (see URL linked from my name). Most people in the UK wouldn't know what Heath bars are, though, hence the change of name.

Comment: I've seen all 3 of the new Carte D'Or range in ASDA, Tesco, Sainsbury and Waitrose. And the check out girl in ASDA said they'll be free samples in all ASDA stores on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (19th, 20th,21st, 22nd October)! 72624 6
