Review Of Connoisseur Camarosa Strawberry Ice Cream 1L

Connoisseur has built a solid reputation in Australia for its ice cream tubs and sticks. Made by Peters, it’s a premium range that offers a wide range of flavours.

Are you wondering if a container of Connoisseur Camarosa Strawberry 1L is any good? I bought a tub to see if it’s worth a spot in your freezer.

Is Connoisseur Camarosa Strawberry Ice Cream any good?

Connoisseur Camarosa Strawberry is a popular ice cream that’s rich, indulgent, and creamy. It’s a good option for consumers who want premium ice cream without the hefty price tag of super-premium pints.

This Connoisseur tub has less strawberry pulp than competitors like Sara Lee and Haagen-Dazs. If you prefer a fruitier frozen dessert, there are better options for your freezer. However, it’s still an enjoyable ice cream that will likely be popular with most.

The best part about having less strawberry content is the texture. Berries are high in water, usually producing ice cream with ice particles. While the strawberry sauce in this Connoisseur ice cream is a little icy, it’s better than some competing brands.

Camarosa strawberry is characterised by its deep red colour and sweetness. First Camarosa strawberries are crushed into a tangy puree and then combined into creamy ice cream swirled with a fragrant Camarosa strawberry sauce. Offering a sweet and aromatic flavour sensation.

Haagen-Dazs Strawberries & Cream 1L: A more expensive brand containing extra dairy and strawberries. Its short ingredients list makes it a stand-out option if you’re happy to pay more. Review of Haagen Dazs Strawberries and Cream>

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.

Since Connoisseur updated their packaging, the brand no longer reveals the milk fat percentage. They provide the same info as Ben & Jerry’s, saying, “contains minimum 10% milk fat”.
