Update (Mon, 18 April 2011): Winners for the giveaway have been picked! Refer to bottom of post for names of winners.
Introducing Clusterfluff — Ben & Jerry’s brand new flavor for 2011! If you’re a peanut butter and caramel lover, this latest creation — a groovy combo of peanut butter ice cream, caramel cluster pieces, marshmallow swirls, and peanut butter swirls — will rock your world! Singapore is the first country outside of the USA where Clusterfluff is available.
For me, the best part of Clusterfluff is the creamy peanut butter ice cream base and caramel clusters. The ice cream has an intense nutty and buttery flavor that I love. Small nuggets of crunchy caramel and bits of peanut also complement the smoothness and subtle saltiness of the ice cream very nicely!
I couldn’t detect much of the marshmallow swirls, but I think the flavor balance is just right like this. Too much marshmallow would make the entire combo too sweet and cloying.
At a recent preview party for Ben & Jerry Moolets, we also got to sample Clusterfluff in three different styles:
Have it on a warm, fudgy brownie, or…
…in a freshly baked waffle bowl. And the most decadent of all…
Ben & Jerry’s Legendairy Ice Cream Shake! This is so sinful it shouldn’t even be legal!!
The brownie, waffle bowl, and ice cream shake are available at all Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops.
By 13 April 2011, Clusterfluff will be available island-wide in all major supermarkets and Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops in Singapore.
