Connoisseur Jam Doughnut Ice Cream is part of the one-litre Laneway range made by Peters. It’s a premium tub but cheaper than super-premium brands like Haagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s.
You probably want this ice cream but don’t know if it’s any good. This review looks at whether it’s worth your money.
What’s in a container of Connoisseur Jam Doughnut?
Each tub contains a swirled mix of sweet vanilla and cinnamon doughnut flavoured ice cream. There are doughnut flavoured pieces scattered through the tub, along with raspberry syrup.
Is this tub worth it?
Like all the Laneway Range, Connoisseur Jam Doughnut Ice Cream is delicious. If you enjoy creative flavours, typically reserved for brands like Ben and Jerry’s, this is the tub for you.
- The combination of jam doughnut and ice cream is a union that was meant to be.
- Ribbons of raspberry and baked bits perfectly complement the creaminess of indulgent ice cream.
- Getting a full litre means excellent value for money, and it’s enough for a family.
Crafting inventive ice cream flavours at home is easy, but factory production is more challenging. While many brands try to get creative, they sometimes fail in execution. Take the Haagen-Dazs Macaron Strawberry & Raspberry Ice Cream as an example; despite its promising name, it fails to deliver on expectations.
In contrast, this jam doughnut ice cream hits all the right notes, offering a mouth-watering dessert you’ll want as a permanent fixture in the freezer.
- A fun, creative mix of flavours most will love.
- The one-litre container offers great value.
- Easy to find in supermarkets Australia-wide.
- Made in Australia.
- Although approved and safe, there are a lot of E-numbers in the ingredients list.

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 Jam Doughnut ice cream contains 10% milk fat. That’s higher than most family-pack ice creams like Blue Ribbon Streets but lower than brands like Haagen-Dazs.
