Review Of Connoisseur Chocolate Brownie Custard 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 Chocolate Brownie Custard 1L is any good? I bought a tub to see if it’s worth a spot in your freezer.

Is Connoisseur Chocolate Brownie Custard Ice Cream any good?

Connoisseur Chocolate Brownie Custard 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.

There’s a good amount of brownie pieces scattered through the tub. They’re chewy and give the ice cream some delicious texture. But the chunks are tiny and hard to spot until you eat them.

The ice cream is indulgent and creamy.

This ice cream also has chocolate custard, which makes up 9% of the tub. This custard was also hard to spot and didn’t bring much to the ice cream.

Overall, though, Connoisseur Chocolate Brownie Custard Ice Cream is excellent. This flavour will appeal to most, although kids who prefer mild flavours may find the chocolate too punchy.

Here’s what the company says about this tub:

Ebinger’s Bakery, first opened in Flatbush, Brooklyn in 1898, was famous for its Blackout Cake. Developed in the 1940s, the Blackout Cake was a chocolate layer cake generously filled and frosted with dark fudge and chocolate cake crumbs. In celebration we bring you our take on the Flatbush Blackout Cake; chocolate ice cream with chewy chocolate brownie pieces and swirled with a rich chocolate custard.

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”.
