      'Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream': A delicious, chocolaty treat made by happy cows

      'Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream'

      I have always loved 'Ben And Jerry's' ice cream, Now I know it is not really everyone's favourite type of desert but I can literally eat an entire tub in one sitting (greedy I know) but that's how amazingly delicious It tastes to me.

      'Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream' is made with 'Chocolate ice cream with chocolate brownie pieces' in my opinion the chocolate brownie pieces really are to die for. They are delicious and go so well with the chocolate ice cream. Both the ice cream and the brownie pieces compliment each other so well that is it not sickly or overpowering, its just right.

      I love their website it has so many funky features: it gives you all of the ice cream flavours which include 'Peanut Butter Cup' (which is new and I cant wait to try it), 'Phish Food' (which is my all time favourite Ben and Jerry's flavor' and 'Cookie Dough'. These are just some of the flavors they have to offer you can find a full list at www.benjerry.co.uk. The website also gives lists of all of the ingredient in each ice cream, the sizes of the tubes either 500ml or 150ml and where they are available. It also offers other features such as a merchandise shop that sells t- shirts, camping essentials as well as much more. It also gives an over view of how 'Ben and Jerry's' was first established and t also gives you a look into their 'Happy Cow' policy.

      Although 'Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream' is so expensive,at nearly £5 for a 500ml tube. I do think it is worth every penny not only does it taste amazing, it is also made with love and care, so I would definatly recommend Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream' to anyone looking for a sweet and chewy, chocolaty treat.

      ... everything changed.

      What was ice cream like before these guys came along? Less yummy? Yes. In fact, by the mid 1970's it was universally forgotten. A few years later, however, two men with amazing tastebuds remembered something, and in doing so, they saved us all from a terrible future..

      The creation:

      An enticing tub filled with chocolate ice cream, fudge brownie chunks, and gooey chocolate sauce.

      The price:

      £4+

      The experience:

      Mmmmm


      My review:

      This is one of my fave B n J flaves because I like chocolate a lot. It's a monstrously decadent dessert, so much so that towards the end it gets a bit sickly for me. Though I do usually eat the full tub in one go as it's pretty hard to put down even if you've had enough :) I would recommend Ben and Jerry's in general because they make such brilliant ice creams in so many flavours, and I would recommend this particular one to anybody that likes to indulge themselves with chocolate.

      It can be quite solid when you first get it, and as I prefer softer ice cream I usually leave it on the side a while before I tuck in. This is just personal preference though, it is perfectly nice as it is.

      In my opinion this is the perfect 'treat' for every once in a while, partly because it's expensive and partly because of the calories in it - there are 250 calories in each 100g serving, and the standard size tub contains 4 servings according to the info at the back, which equates to 1000 calories. Of course you don't have to eat it all to yourself though, you could share!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Very tasty but very expensive. This is a great flavour too.

      Ben and Jerrys is my all time favourite brand of ice cream. I was first introduced to it during my A-Levels when the rest of my Biology Class couldn't believe I hadn't tried it before, so we had a taster session for our last class. From that moment, I fell in love!! Everyone in the class was saying how Phish food was their favourite but for me it was too much. Chocolate fudge brownie was much better.

      As the name suggests it is chocolate ice cream with chocolate fudge brownie chunks swirled in. There is enough in a tub to make it possible to get some in every mouthful, however, I like to eat the whole tub just to ensure it's evenly balance!! This icecream is much thicker and creamer than any other brands I've tried and it's this that I like, it's so rich without being too sickly. Yum!! I can quite happily eat a whole tub of this ice cream, however, it's not my favourite. I prefer half baked which is half this one and half cookie dough.

      I only buy B an Js when it's on offer in the supermarket because it's so expensive. For a small tub you pay around £4 and if, like me, you eat this in one go, it comes out a lot of money. However, the supermarkets quite often offer this half price or on 2 for one deals (that's very dangerous!), well worth buying if this is the case. I once had 15 tubs of ice cream in my freezer when I discovered a £1 deal... it also disappeared worryingly fast!!

      The packaging for this is cardboard, how it can be melting ice cream resistant but eco friendly I don't know but it's great. Holds everything in and they always fill the tubs right to the very rim which is great.

      Ben and Jerrys is always very readily avaliable and I've found it in pretty much every supermarket I visit, however, the choice of flavours usually suffers. Fortunately this is probably one of the most common flavours and can be found in most places.

      Also as an aside B and J have now brought out a frozen yoghurt version of this which is just as delicious but much healthier for you because this version certainly can't be described as such.

      So overall this ice cream is delicious, rich and yummy, however it's expensive. If you see it on offer snap it up and give it a try but you have been warned, it's very difficult to put it down once started.

        i love itt

        This is by far the best ice cream I have ever had and my favourite. If you like chocolate then you will loove this ice cream, it's as simple as that! The best bit of the ice cream has to be the small chocolate brownie bits, they're soft and chewy and just amazing! I will let all you ice cream lovers in in a secret (you may already know this lol), stick the tub of ice cream into your microwave for about 30 seconds or less so that the ice cream is partly melted. This works extremely well with Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie because the ice cream is partly melted which means the chocolate brownie pieces are easy to pick out. I think only once have I started a chocolate fudge brownie and left some in the tub for another time, I always finish the ice cream. If you guys like chocolate to get you out of sticky situations then buy this ice cream. I LOVE ITTTT!

        prem product

        Ben and Jerry's is a premium ice maker from America. They are well known for there rich ice cream full of pieces of sweets and thick sauces. This chocolate one is no different.

        The product is chocolate ice cream which is rich and dark with a choc sauce running through is which is thick and dark black in colour . The best part though is the brownies which are very cakey and are cut up into various sizes from quite big to very small. This adds a texture to the ice cream and makes it into a complete menu item in itself.

        All these bits in the ice cream though and the thick sauces make it quite hard to eat. It does not melt very easily so it can be hard to get it out with a spoon and it will not melt in the mouth like other luxery ice creams will do. The solution is to leave it out for a while before opening it. If you put it back in the freezer though be prepared for it to split and look very different when you take it back out again. Although it will not taste any different. Of all the flavours this is one of my favourites, it is not too wacky compared to some but is a twist on a classic.

        Many supermarkets will run promotions from time to time and they will try to under cut each other so the cheapest I have seen it is £1.50 but the normal price is more like a fiver

          Not for children and not for sharing!

          Ben & Jerry's is my favourite brand of ice cream, there are quite a few different flavours but Cholcolate Fudge Brownie is the best (in my eyes and tummy anyway!) It isn't as sweet as you'd imagine it to be with the chocolate ice cream, sticky chocolate brownie pieces and lumps of chocolate, so you really can eat a whole tub in one sitting....beware!

          It's really thick so it takes quite a while to melt, which is great because you kind of have to chew it so it takes longer to eat!

          The price of the average 500ml tub varies greatly but most supermarkets sell it at around £3.99, about the same as rivals Haagan-daz (but it's nicer!), however, I have seen it on offer a few times in somerfields and asda-2 for the price of 1, double yum.

          Downsides :(.....One 500ml tub contains a whopping 1300 calories and 65 grams of fat (of which saturates 40). Anyone who does weightwatchers will know that that's around a days worth of points plus some. Everyone else is probably thinking, yeah, so?! (damn those skinnies) Alas, fear not my health concious friends for Ben & Jerry are good guys who sympathise with the likes of us and they have created the perfect gift...Low fat frozen yoghurt Chocolate Fudge Brownie!! Hooray! It tastes almost identical and isn't as naughty, one 500ml tub of this contains 900 calories and only 15 grams of fat (of which Saturates-a teeny 5g) that's a huge difference simply meaning you can eat twice as much so grab a big spoon! (I can't wait till summer, but why wait till summer?)

            Lovely ice cream which should be used as a treat now and then

            This is my most favourite ice cream ever!

            Ben and Jerry's is a high standard and high priced ice cream created by two people, you guessed it...Ben and Jerry! There are several flavours which normally means that there is something for everyone.

            Ben and Jerry's can be purchased in most supermarkets and they also have their own shops in some shopping centres. Another place that Ben and Jerry's counters can be found is in the cinema, as the ice cream is very popular.

            Ben and Jerry's is probably the best ice cream out there, it tastes so nice and just unlike any other. The chocolate fudge brownie is my personal favourite as I love brownies and love chocolate! This flavour ice cream consists of a rich chocolate ice cream (not sickly though) mixed with small brownie pieces and is extremely tasty.

            A normal sized tub of this ice cream is around 500ml in size and doesn't last long, it normally costs around £4.00 from the supermarket but is on offer a lot of the time for around the £2-£2.50 mark. Purchasing the ice cream from one of their shops in the shopping centre or cinema will cost a lot more but is only meant for the use during your visit and not to take home.

            Overall I rate this ice cream 5/5 because it tastes so nice, the only problem though is that it costs so much. I would recommend this ice cream but only as a treat every now and again.

            a great rich ice cream

            I had one requirement for my partner last night when he went to the shop and that was for ice cream, and it had to contain chocolate. He came back with the chocolate fudge brownie from Ben and Jerry's. It's one I haven't tried before so was looking forward to it.
            Every time I have a tub of Ben and Jerry's, I always marvel at how their tubs are very paper based. I was pleased to learn that they are as environmentally friendly as they can be without leaking melted ice cream everywhere. This means you can't recycle them in the normal was as the tub is coated, but the rest of the tub is made from recyclable paper, so it's a step in the right direction.

            I love opening any tub of Ben and Jerry's as the ice cream is filled right to the top and you always have to wait a while for the edges to start melting before you are able to slide your spoon around the edges of the tub. Opening the chocolate fudge brownie is a lovely sight. A dark chocolate colour stares back at you, and whilst it's a very dark in colour, it doesn't taste too rich like it's made with dark chocolate.
            The first taste of this ice cream fills your mouth with a taste explosion of rich chocolate. The flavour stays on my taste buds for ages, and you really could stretch this ice cream out for hours and still keep the flavour alive.
            As you find the dark brownie pieces, some are small and chewy if the ice cream around them has melted slightly. I like these pieces as they melt in my mouth along with the ice cream. Other bigger pieces are harder as they are still frozen, and taste more like a biscuit, which gives the ice cream some extra textures and flavours.
            I found that there aren't too many flavours going on in this ice cream, but if you need some chocolate in your life then this flavour will satisfy that craving in an instant.
            I don't like my ice cream when it has melted too much and as I always eat Ben and Jerry's from the tub, I will only eat this ice cream in short bursts to preserve the rest of the tub for another time.

            This ice cream won't do any diet you may be on any favours as it contains 260 calories and 13 grams of fat per 100g of product. It's so worth it in small doses though. My tub will last me around a week as I'll have small pieces every now and again just to get the flavour out and enjoy it.
            For any allergy sufferers this ice cream also contains wheat, eggs and soya.

            Overall I was happy with the choice that was made for me, and I have thoroughly enjoyed eating it. We paid £3.99 for our 500ml tub as sadly it wasn't on any offer, but it was worth every penny in my opinion for a treat.

              What more can I say? I love it!

              Chocolate icecream and chocolate fudge brownie create this absolutely moutwatering icecream. This is my favourite flavour of Ben n' Jerry's collection. You can eat a whole pint of this stuff and still be gagging for more. I have never known an icecream to be so irresistable....I'm salivating as I look at the picture.

              The packaging is fairly simple. A round, cardboard tub (which can be recycled) Brown, with funky lettering spelling out "Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream" Don't bother getting your bowls out, instead grab a spoon and tuck in! Only problem is the box does get a bit weak and starts to fall apart (especially if you start hacking at the icecream in a dramatic fashion) Oh and you want to leave the icecream out of the freezer for a few minutes in order to let it soften. The amount of times I have severe red marks on the palm of my hand from attempting to scoop out some too early.

              I reccommend this icecream to ANYONE. Who ares if you are on a diet, or if you are lactose intolerant - This icecream is SO worth the pain.

                Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

                Ben & Jerry are evil. Whenever I open a tub of their ice cream I cant seem to be able to stop eating it! Which is terrible because I'm not one of those people who can eat anything and not gain any weight. But this ice cream is definitely my favourite brand and I have really loved all the flavours I have tried so far, so the other day when I was with my mom shopping in Sainsburys and this Chocolate Brownie flavour was on offer for around £2 I just had to try it!

                Nutritional Information:
                Per 100ml
                Energy - 960 kj
                Protein - 3g
                Carbohydrate - 27g
                Fat - 13g

                I couldn't actually find how many calories there are in this particular flavour of Ben & Jerry's but I can guess it's about a million. This ice cream brand is certainly not for those of you who are on a diet or watching your weight that's for sure!

                The Taste:
                As soon as I opened this ice cream I could not wait to try it, it smelled amazing and looked pretty great to, I would say leave it out on the side to slightly melt before you eat it because it is quite hard when you first take it out of the freezer.

                This ice cream is a mixture of chocolate, chocolate chips, chocolate pieces & brownie.
                So this is really one for chocolate lovers and people with a sweet tooth because after a while it does become incredibly sickly (that's never stopped me eating a whole tub though!!)

                Anyway back to the taste. The brownie pieces in this ice cream are absolutely beautiful, they are soft and seem to melt on your tongue when you eat them and the ice cream itself is soft and creamy overall the whole thing tastes very sweet but I think the brownie in the ice cream adds a different texture which is very nice. I think I would go as far to say that this is THE nicest ice cream I have ever tasted from any range but as I previously mentioned not good for those who don't like chocolate or sweet foods.

                Overall Opinion:
                Well my opinion is I would rather be fat than never eat this again! It is the nicest ice cream I have ever tried without a doubt and certainly satisfied my sweet tooth. I would say that this is best for a once in a while treat and not an everyday snack, even though I could quite easily eat it more than once a day! If you have never tried Ben & Jerry's ice cream I think you should rush out and get yourself a tub if this and even if you have tried other B&J flavours, try this one, you will not be disappointed!

                Thanks For Reading

                  Disadvantages

                  My favorite Ben and Jerry's so far!

                  I should never have eaten that Cookie Dough Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Now I have the taste for it. I never usually eat Ice Cream because a) it hurts my teeth and b) the calories just goes straight to my hips. But of course when I went to Asda on Sunday it was on offer for £2.00 instead of the usual £4.00.

                  So I picked one up for Mr Kimbles and one for myself. Ben and Jerry's not only do the Chocolate brownie or Cookie Dough, the range is massive. They provide Chocolate Macademia, Cookie Dough, Chocolate Brownie, Cheesecake Brownie, Phish Food, Phish food frozen yoghurt, Caramel Chew Chew, Half Baked and Strawberry Cheesecake in their normal Ice Cream range.

                  They also offer a Fairtrade, low fat and sorbet range. Ben and Jerry's are known for making fantastic Ice Cream and I always thought they were only available in America. That was until my friend Sian started raving about them. So of course I had to give them all a try. Though I have since noticed that America do have a bigger range than us with some scrummy looking flavour I may have to try when we go to Disney Land in two years.

                  The Chocolate Brownie one comes in the usual Ben and Jerry's tub which is brown in colour. The lid just peels off the top so it can be replaced if you manage to put it back in the freezer which I don't seem to be able to do. On the top of the lid itself it shows the Ben and Jerry's logo with Chocolate brownie written below it.

                  The front of the tub shows the Ben and Jerry's logo at the top with Chocolate Brownie written below with little Chocolate Brownie pictures on. At the bottom of the tub it then advises you 'Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Brownie pieces'.

                  Again on the back it advised you all about Ben and Jerry's as a company which is shown in 4 different langauges. And the Nutritional information which is as follow -
                  Per 100ml
                  Energy - 960kj
                  Protein - 3g
                  Carboydrate - 27g
                  Fat - 13g

                  As soon as I opened the lid the Chocolate Ice Cream looked so appealing. I couldn't wait to dig in. This time though I left it a few minutes on the side to melt a little before I even attempted to get the Ice Cream out as it is a bit hard when it comes straight out the freezer.

                  The taste though was amazing. The Choclate Ice Cream was so smooth and delicious which contained the Brownie Pieces and even little Chocolate pieces. As for the chunks of Chocolate Brownie, YUM! I found whilst munching my way through it that it contained quite a lot of the Brownie Chunks, certainly more pieces than the Cookie dough contained their pieces.

                  The Chocolate Brownie pieces are quite squidgy, they were not hard as I thought they may be and they also contain little Chocolate chips mixed in. It so moreish I ate the whole tub, again being helped by Scarlet monkey. And yes did I feel sick after, even Scarlet looked far too full to move.

                  With it being Christmas now I will certainly get more to keep the fridge stocked for the festive period!

                    this one will divide opinion, some will like it because of its sweetness others will loath it

                    For people who can eat a whole piece of rich succulent fudge cake then this ice cream is for you. This ice cream is probably if not defiantly the best chocolate ice cream in the world. The chocolaty sweetness is overwhelming, the chunks of chocolate and pieces of fudge are delicious on their own or in the ice cream. However there are downsides to this great flavour, one of course is that it's very fattening and also i find it too sweet to eat more than a few mouthfuls. Now for you chocoholics out there you might be able to wolf down a whole carton but for the average ice cream eater you are better of picking strawberry shortcake or cookie dough which are equally nice flavours and much more eatable. The ice creams itself is delicious and not worth missing, so try it out even if you don't like chocolate ice cream, you might be surprised.

                    Wait for an supermarket offer, and then check it out!

                    For chocoholics out there, you can't go far wrong with Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream. The name kind of says it all but, just to be clear, this is chocoate ice-cream loaded with chocolate brownie chunks.

                    B&J make a variety of ice-creams and I have tried almost all of them and can say with confidence that none are as delicious or as more-ish as this. The chocolate ice-cream is, I have to say, lovely and creamy but not necessarily any nicer than any other chocolate ice-cream you can mention. It is clearly the addition of the brownie chunks that make this so special. B&J get their brownies from a bakery in New York that supports the local community and helps the homeless or those on low incomes, so you can feel a little bit smug whilst loading yourself up with sugar. You can read all about it on the B&J website. http://benandjerry.co.uk/ The brownies are both crunchy and chewy at the same time, which is just how brownies should be. It's also a lovely surprise biting down onto a spoonful of ice-cream and getting a cheeky little brownie texture as well as the ice-cream. Some people might find the idea of chocolate on chocolate a bit sickly, but it isn't at all. The perfect balance has been struck.

                    Price-wise I feel that B&J is overpriced as a rule. You can easily pay up to £5 for a 500ml tub (which is small and would only do for two people) but more commonly it is about £4 a tub. Sometimes you can find it on offer in the supermarkets and they'll do a 'two for £5' deal or a BOGOF. I managed to find some for £2 a tub last weekend, which is far better value for money.

                    Overall I would say this is a must-try for chocoholics or those with a sweet tooth, however I struggle to see how it's worth it at £4 a go. My advice would be to buy it only when it's on offer.

                    You can buy the tubs in 500ml (supermarkets) or 200ml (cinemas). 100ml is 220 calories.
