Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Macadamia/ Phish Food Frozen Yogurt/ (US) Ginger Snap Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Macadamia/ Phish Food Frozen Yogurt/ (US) Ginger Snap
Posted: 11:04 Sun 15-Mar-2009. Location: (first two from) Sainsbury's, Southampton.
"choccieman" reports: Still haven't found the elusive new Cheesecake Brownie flavour but did get my hands on this and Phish Food Frozen Yogurt. Usual high quality B+J ice cream here, for those not so keen on nuts (myself included) it is surprisingly tasty. This is largely because although the tub claims "10% chocolatey covered macadamia nuts", in the ingredients it actually lists 3% nuts! That means each 'nut' is made up of over twice as much chocolate as there is actual macadamia.

As for the Phish Food Frozen Yogurt this is the same change (compared to regular) as Chocolate Fudge Brownie was/is, ie not as creamy therefore not as nice a taste, but equally not quite as heavy.

...And congratulations to "choccieman" (who's sent in some great stuff over the past 5 years or so) for submitting Snackspot's 1000th posting - thanks to everyone else who's contributed in any way, here's to the next 1000! In other pint-sized celebrations, "Graham" paid $4.49 for a tub of Ben and Jerry's Ginger Snap at his regular haunt of Safeway, Shoreline, WA, USA, revealing: I hadn't seen any other Limited Batch products recently and its promise of "brown sugar cinnamon ice cream with gingersnap cookies and a ginger caramel swirl" promised a nice alternative to the usual cinnamon options. I liked it quite a lot - not unlike the ginger snap/vanilla ice cream cookies I used to make when I was a kid. If I were to be hyper critical the cookies are more squish than snap, but it doesn't really detract much.

Caramel Cinnamon Waffle is also this summer's new flavour of Walls' Carte D'Or, part of a (Mc)flurry of ice-cream launches that includes Magnum Temptation, Pure White Delight or Mint Choc Truffle Thorntons sticks, Haagen-Dazs Limited Edition Cherries and Cream and the slightly unusually-named Cornetto Love Chocolate, which combines "milk, dark and white flavour chocolate ice creams in a chocolate wafer cone topped with triple chocolate curls".

Comment: I got around to trying the macadamia B&J. I don't like chocolate ice cream per se. This however, is excellent due to the presence of copious chocolate covered macadamias (is there a better nut?).

Comment: imagine my delight when i walk into my local butchers and see in his freezer section at the back a freezer full of ben and jerrys for a £1 a tub! i saw this flavour and gave it a go and now its up there alongside phish food and caramel chew chew as my favourite ice cream. love it! B&J are not stingy on the goodies so theres loads of chocolate coated nuts in there. very satisfying ice cream eating experience :)
