Ben & Jerry's Vanilla Toffee Bar Crunch Ice Cream
Vanilla Ice Cream with Fudge-Covered Toffee Pieces
I originally had no plans of picking this up after my showdown between the new and old coffee versions. That was until one of my dad's coworkers asked me why it had changed. He sounded exactly like every comment that was left on my showdown as well. "I don't typically buy ice cream but when I do it would be heath bar crunch..." He literally ranted to me for a good 10 minutes over the change. After I explained it, he called them names that Dubba would censor if I was to list them. So with that reinforcement, I decided to grab the new version just to see how many people are pissed off about it in these comments as well.
Verdict? Toffee, for the people you hate
Buy Again? Only if there's another formula change
Dubba's Scoop: Unbeknownst to Nick (wait, did I just really use that word?), my Market Basket cart seemed a bit light on the ice cream front last week and I picked this one up as well. I just had some about an hour ago and now I see why people are frustrated with this overly potent toffee replacement. It reminds me a bit of my frustrating experience with Gifford's Mount Katahdin Crunch. The only thing I would add is I felt like the toffee kind of negated any enjoyment I would have gotten from the vanilla base. Maybe it was a bum pint, but it was gritty and the vanilla flavoring felt hidden behind the toffee invasion.
