Is this low fat ice cream any good?

Hershey’s Chocolate-Strawberry Ripple is an enjoyable tub of low fat ice cream. The texture is soft, and it scoops nicely into a bowl or cone. 

The strawberry sauce is deliciously oozy straight from the freezer. It makes up 11% 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-Strawberry Ripple. While its texture is smooth and creamy, it has a foamy consistency that won’t compete with more premium ice creams.

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-Strawberry 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”.
