Is B&J Hazel-nuttin’ but Chocolate any good?

Ben & Jerry’s Hazel-nuttin’ but Chocolate Ice Cream is a rich chocolate hazelnut ice cream blend, complemented by brownie pieces and sea salt chocolaty swirls. It’s crowned with creamy whipped ice cream, further enriched with hazelnut swirls and chocolatey chunks.

The creamy hazelnut base ice cream is creamy and indulgent with a delicious nutty flavour. Whipped top adds a soft, milky texture that contrasts pleasantly with the base.

What the unscooped ice cream looks like.

Chocolate chunks and brownies add some nice texture. While there’s a lot of sweetness, salty choc swirls help balance the flavours.

Having a separate top and bottom layer makes getting a taste of everything in one scoop is challenging. Having the sundae topping as layers through the tub would be nice.


  • Indulgent chocolate hazelnut ice cream.
  • The top layer is soft and easy to scoop.
  • One small tub lasts longer than you’d expect.


  • Expensive for the pack size.
  • Not made in Australia.

Many love its flavour, which closely resembles Nutella. They also appreciated its creamy texture, rich hazelnut and chocolate flavours, and the inclusion of brownie pieces.

There are a few dissenting opinions where individuals found it not to their taste. Most of the bad reviews centred around the ice cream being too sweet, lacking hazelnut flavour, or having too many chunks.

Some also noted that the ice cream was hard to find due to its popularity and that it was too expensive.

Despite these criticisms, the consensus is that it’s delicious, with many eager to repurchase.

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.”
