Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Core Karamel Sutra Confirmed sighting: Ben and Jerry's Core Karamel Sutra
Posted: 10:05 Sun 04-Mar-2012. Location: Tesco, Southampton. Nutritional unusualness: 12% soft caramel core.
"choccieman" reports: Hurrah, it's always a good day when a new B+J's product hits the market. OK we're never going to get the kind of glorious variation they get in the states but it's a start. So this is the first flavour (of hopefully a whole range) to feature a caramel core (hence the name) running through the centre of, and partially separating, two flavours of ice cream.

In this instance those flavours are caramel and chocolate with chocolate chunks. Which is quite convenient as I like the chocolate and mrs choccieman likes the caramel. It's an excellent combination and whilst it isn't quite as good as the core sundae you'd get from a B+J's stand at the cinema and won't replace our current fave of Coconutterly Fair it's still great and hopefully there'll be more varieties to follow soon.

...Cheers "choccieman" - no sign of this so far in the Old Kent Road Tesco, but they did have the long-awaited UK version of The Vermonster, which was OK but in my opinion not as good as Cadbury's Gooing For Gold. For posher freezer cabinets, Foodstuff Finds detected "elements of fern and [...] a very fragrant but also slightly woody taste" in Heston from Waitrose's Chocolate and Rosemary Ice Cream, while we can also look forward to: Unilever's biggest chocolate hit yet - Magnum Infinity in Chocolate, or Chocolate and Caramel; Rowntree's Sour Pastilles ice lollies; plus, from Haagen-Dazs, both Mint Leaves and Chocolate flavour and these Secret Sensations, which contain "a liquid centre of sauce enveloped by ice cream", in Chocolat Fondant or Creme Brulee.

Comment: Yeah they had the other flavours in Surrey Quays Tesco today but only Vermonster was half-price (£2.22/tub).

Oh and in all the excitement re BK's King of The Day http://www.burgerking.co.uk/wildcard , I forgot to mention that their desserts now include "A delicious hot brownie with a gooey white chocolate centre that simply melts in your mouth. Topped off with a generous serving of real dairy ice cream." http://www.burgerking.co.uk/menu?producttypeid=20&productid=363

- possibly in accordance with Snackspot acclaim for last year's chocolate version! http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=1112241835daa#upcoming

Comment: Karamel Sutra isn't new, just rebranded; it was a regular "special edition" in the early 2000s, though I preferred the similar fudge version.

Comment: The entire "Core" range were down to about £3/tub in the Old Kent Road Tesco - I'm aiming go back for some this week, though the local Asda also had (very limited amounts of) Cadbury Creme Egg tubs for just a quid each...

Comment: £1 big Cadbury Creme Egg tubs were back in Asda today, stop this madness!

Comment: Doing some reinvention on flavors is a must on any product. Especially those chocolates. I love the caramel one though!

Comment: don't know if anyone else is tiring of these updates, but they still have those £1 big Cadbury Creme Egg tubs in Asda Old Kent Road, and Ben+Jerry's Vermonster and Oh My Apple Pie seem to be half-price (£2.25?) in Morrissons...

Comment: B+J cores now just £2.50/tub in Tescos for most of May from the looks of things..!

Comment: And Secret Sensations by H-D on offer too! Aren't Tesco(s) wonderful!? *sigh*

Comment: On the mention of Burger King... its vastly superior to McDonalds. I had a XL Bacon Cheeseburger meal for the first time... Covered the Burger with Heinz Barbecue Sauce, covered the Chips in Vinegar... deeeeeeeeelish!
