Today's Review: Ben & Jerry's Topped Salted Caramel Brownie

Today's Review: Ben & Jerry's Topped Salted Caramel Brownie
I reviewed the Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough flavour of these new Topped tubs a little while back, and found it to be quite perfect. So, of course, I wanted more where that came from, and thankfully there are a couple more varieties on offer. Here we have the Topped Salted Caramel Brownie, which contains salted caramel and brownies, and a topping. Also, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate chunks. Sounds like another winning combination, not quite as decadent as the pure chocolate offering, but hey, sometimes less is more.
This is pretty good stuff, the topping is fantastic, much like the other tub, a thick chocolate layer that is just plain creamy and fantastic. Underneath is a healthy smattering of chocolate chunks that give a satisfying chocolate hit, and some decent sized chunks of brownie. The salted caramel is ever present, although I feel it could have been a bit stronger. Maybe it's because everything has salted caramel nowadays and the effect has worn off a bit, but the vanilla caramel combo wasn't quite as flavoursome as I'd hoped. Still, even when Ben & Jerry do vanilla they do it well, so there's not much to complain about, just a minor thing that leaves me firmly in the Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough camp. It's worth trying both flavours out though. Actually, it's worth trying all the flavours.
My rating: 4/5
