Prior to my journey to UK, my ice cream cravings were usually settled by the humble potong ice cream or magnolia ice cream with wafers sold the road side uncles. Occasionally, I'll get the earthquake treat from my uncle at Swenson's. Haagen Daaz was a luxury I was unwilling to pay for and B and J was a totally foreign concept at that time.
Fast forward to 2004 and here I am on British Soil. One very fine day as I was doing my groceries, I stumbled upon this big offer --> Ben and Jerry's 2 for 4 pounds !!!..... WAHH!!!.. Of course, at that time the conversion was still close to 3 pounds per Sing which made each tub 6 dollars but thats still way cheaper than 10 sing dollars back home. Gleefully, I took home 4 tubs: Peace of Cake, Pfish Food and Cookie Dough. It was love at first taste and I bought 8 tubs the moment I finished the last 4 lol, which didn't take long.
Somehow, I decided to start collecting the ice cream tubs (which btw is a nightmare when I have to transport them when I move houses). Lots of tubs have been collected, close to a hundred maybe? Well... thanks to friends who like to buy B and J when they come over for dinner and flatmates who are also keen on ice cream.

I kinda tricked Mich who didn't like cream nor cheese into eating it. She took one spoon and knew there was something she didn't like. lol Sorrie Mich LOL!.
Also I skipped dinner and ate one tub of this instead in my 2nd year freezer flat ... Fell sick the next day lol.... Lesson LEARNT.
Cookie Dough 4.5****
This tub has no interesting facts !!!. How boring !! LOL!... At least it taste goood!!!...
Chocolate fudge brownie 3.5***
3.5 stars only?.... yeah... I think the brownie pieces damaged the overall texture of the ice cream. Haha.. they always end up being the last few tubs remaining in the freezer.
MInt Icecream !!! I doubt you'll be finding this ice cream at the store tomorrow. Its a limited edition seen only during winter times. I've only got 3 tubs of this. The first one was from Ash's Christmas potluck in 1st year. The 2nd tub was bought from Tesco (which seems to be the only place that sells it). Can't remember where the last tub came from.
Flavour wise. Pretty much similar to vanilla but with a hint of MInt.
Also!.. its 40% larger than the average B and J tub. Really?

The only reason why I bought it was becos I am a B and J fan lol and I needed to try all the flavours lol!

Macademian nuts!! .. Anyone like them? I find it a little oily though. Not one of my favourite tubs but if you are a big macademian nut fan then this is the ice cream for you.
I had so much hope for this ice cream but it disappointed me. Read my other post on it. Basically it didn’t taste like the other mango sorbets that I have tasted previously. The mix berry swirl that went into it tasted somewhat artificial too. Definitely NOT having this tomorrow
Ok. So what flavour ice cream are you going to have tomorrow?. Will there be flavours offered that I have not sampled before? Will I go for my favourite PEACE OF CAKE? lol....! See ya there tomorrow.
