What’s is Connoisseur Crunchy Peanut Butter Ice Cream?

Each tub contains a mix of peanut butter and caramel ice cream. There are diced nuts and chocolate-coated peanuts throughout the tub. Ribbons of Murray River salted caramel syrup also hide through the container.

Is this tub worth it?

Connoisseur Crunchy Peanut Butter Ice Cream is delicious. If you enjoy nutty desserts with plenty of crunchy texture, then you’ll love this product.

Smooth, creamy ice cream is taken to a new level with pockets of caramel sauce. Every spoonful has something to offer, whether it’s ice cream, sauce, or crunchy mix-ins.

Chocolate chips are often hard and flavourless in ice cream. While the sizeable choc nuts in this tub look a challenge to eat, they’re pleasantly crunchy and easy to chew – not tooth-breaking.

Getting a full litre means excellent value for money, and it’s enough for a family.

Product packaging

The colour schemes for Jam Doughnut and Crunchy Peanut Butter packaging are strikingly similar. It’s easy to mix them up, especially in a supermarket freezer covered in ice.

Choosing the wrong flavour won’t have a big impact on many. But one tub contains a major allergen (nuts) while the other doesn’t, so they should be easier to tell apart.

Packaging design doesn’t impact the taste, but it makes life tricky for people with visual impairments.

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.

Connoisseur Crunchy Peanut Butter ice cream contains 10% milk fat. That’s higher than most family-pack ice creams like Blue Ribbon Streets but lower than brands like Murray Street Ice Creamery or Haagen-Dazs.
