Review Of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough S’Wich Up Ice Cream 458ml

Ben & Jerry’s is an iconic ice cream brand loved for its imaginative range of flavours. Their pints usually include a lot of extra chunks and swirls to keep things exciting.

I taste-tested the entire range to work out if they live up to the hype. This review looks at Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough S’Wich Up 458ml. Find out if it’s worth a spot in your freezer.

Is B&J Cookie Dough S’Wich Up any good?

Cookie Dough S’Wich Up takes vanilla ice cream and adds chocolate cookie sandwiches, cookie swirls, and cookie dough chunks. The vanilla ice cream is creamy and smooth, and it’ll appeal to people who love lots of add-ins mixed into their pints.

However, I think this pint missed the mark. The original Choc Chip Cookie Dough has 16% cookie dough, while this one only has 3%. Instead, B&J includes 8% sandwich cookies, which are dry and almost flavourless.

The ice cream was also clumpy and hard to scoop, which some won’t mind. But if you enjoy scooping up a nice ball of ice cream, you may be better with something else.

All the add-ins make it hard to scoop.

For all that’s going on in this pint, it tastes a lot like any cookies and cream ice cream brand. You could even buy a tub of Oreo then make some cookie dough in 5 minutes and add it yourself. It’s a much cheaper option.


  • Indulgent, rich ice cream.
  • One small tub lasts longer than you’d expect.


  • Expensive for the pack size.
  • Too much flavourless cookie.
  • Not enough cookie dough.

What do other customers think of this ice cream?

I looked at dozens of online reviews to see what others think of this product. Here’s a summary:

The Ben and Jerry’s Cookie Dough S’Wich Up Ice Cream received mixed customer reviews. Many customers praise the ice cream for its delicious taste, creamy texture, and the balance of ice cream and add-ins.

However, some complained about the large, hard chunks of cookie-like pieces, likening them to ‘Oreo’ cookies. A few expressed a preference for lighter, fresher ice cream flavour.

The reviews are mixed, but mostly positive.

Some reviewers offer a moderate view, enjoying the ice cream but noting it could be improved. They suggest increasing the amount of cookie dough and reducing the size and hardness of the chocolate cookie chunks.

Milk fat

Milk fat plays a vital role in ice cream’s texture and mouthfeel. More of it results in a creamier, smoother texture associated with superior ice cream.

Unfortunately, B&J doesn’t disclose the milk fat percentage in their products. I reached out to the company to get this information, but they responded with:

“We cannot give you the exact amount, but it is greater than 10%, meaning it is ice cream under the Australian and New Zealand regulations (Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code – Standard 2.5.6). We hope this information is helpful.”
