Review Of Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple 1L

Hershey’s started selling chocolate bars way back in 1900. Since then, the brand has expanded into a sweet snack powerhouse.

Are you wondering if Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple 1L is any good? I bought a tub to find out if this frozen dessert is worth the money.

What is Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple?

Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple is a reduced fat chocolate flavoured ice cream. It’s got soft chocolate sauce running through the tub. This frozen dessert has 40% less fat than regular ice cream.

Is Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple any good?

Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple is an enjoyable tub of low fat ice cream. It has a nice chocolatey flavour made with 2.5% Hershey’s cocoa. The texture is soft, and it scoops nicely into a bowl or cone. 

The choc sauce is deliciously oozy straight from the freezer. It makes up 10% of the tub, so some decent sized wells are waiting to be discovered further down the container.

No ice cream is perfect, though, including Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple. While its texture is smooth and creamy, it has a foamy consistency that won’t compete with more premium ice creams.

  • Nice chocolatey flavour.
  • Made in Australia.


  • Texture is airy and could be better.
  • Just one of many chocolate ice creams.

What are some similar products to try?

If you can’t get your hands on Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple or you want something a little different, try one of these brands:

Bulla Murray St Chocolate & Fudge Ripple 1L: Made by the same company, this is a better ice cream with more fresh dairy and free range eggs. However, it’s got a little less sauce than the Hershey’s tub. You can also check out my Murray St Chocolate & Fudge Ripple Ice Cream Review here.

Pana Organic Hazelnut Chocolate Ripple 475ml: Consider this brand if you want a dairy-free option. It’s a coconut-based frozen dessert with hazelnut choc spread running through it.

Fresh milk and cream are the main dairy ingredients used in this ice cream.

Ingredients List: Fresh milk, sugar, water, glucose syrup, fresh cream (milk) (7%), milk solids, cocoa solids (2.5%), maltodextrin, emulsifiers (422, 477, 471), colours (beet red, caramel iii, vegetable carbon), thickeners (1442, guar gum, processed eucheuma seaweed, locust bean gum), natural flavour, salt, acidity regulator (citric acid).

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.

Hershey’s Chocolate Ripple has less than 10% milk fat, so it doesn’t have the indulgent consistency of more expensive brands. However, it’s still enjoyable.

Did you know? Ice cream products sold in Australia with less than 10% milk fat can’t label the front of pack “ice cream”.
