Is this tub any good?

Coles Salted Caramel Ice Cream is excellent value for money, bridging the gap between budget family packs and premium tubs. Creamy caramel ice cream is “levelled up” with the occasional swirl of slightly salted caramel sauce. The saltiness is a perfect match for a sweet dessert.

A tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream stuffed with mix-ins will appeal to many, but not everyone. The Coles Salted Caramel product keeps it simple. It’s ideal for anyone looking for no-frills ice cream that tastes good. This product is a solid performer in the freezer aisle.

A one-litre container means getting your money’s worth. It’s big enough to feed a whole family hungry for something sweet.

Milk fat

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

Coles Salted Caramel ice cream contains 10% milk fat. That’s the same as a tub of Much Moore Awesome Salted Caramel Ice Cream. For higher milk fat, choose the Woolworths or Haagen-Dazs Salted Caramel products.
