Review Of Indulge Cookies and Cream Ice Cream 1L

Some high-end brands produce exceptional ice cream but come at a higher price. Aldi’s Indulge ice cream tubs could be a good choice for those seeking premium ice cream for a bargain.

In this review, I’ll look at Indulge Cookies and Cream Ice Cream 1L. Find out if it deserves a spot in your freezer.

Is the ice cream any good?

A one-litre container of Indulge Cookies and Cream Ice Cream offers excellent value for money. Deliciously creamy, smooth ice cream contains good-sized chunks of cookies.

At this tub’s price point, water is often the primary ingredient. Many producers also churn a lot of extra air into the ice cream to reduce costs. However, this pack of Indulge passed all these tests.

The cookie bits are a good size.

Crafted locally, it boasts a composition of 96% Australian ingredients. This is a notable achievement, given that most other brands have less. Some with absolutely no local content.

No ice cream is flawless, including the Indulge Cookies and Cream variety. It contains Hydrogenated Palm Oil, which isn’t popular with some Australian consumers. Sustainability concerns raise a big question mark.

What alternatives are there in supermarkets?

Connoisseur Cookies & Cream 1L: Both tubs are the same pack size; each also have 13.5% milk fat and 15% cookies. Their ingredient lists are similar, although Connoisseur uses 28% cream while Indulge has 25%. The biggest difference is the price, with Connoisseur costing over double.

Bulla Creamy Classics Cookies & Cream 2L: A cheaper family pack with roughly half the cookies and lower milk fat. This airier, foamier product has lots of extra air churned into the tub. Still, it is a good ice cream that will appeal to anyone looking for a low-cost option.

Woolworths Cookies & Cream 1L: A slightly more expensive product with the same amount of cookies but less cream. It is a good option if you can’t get to an Aldi supermarket. Check out the Woolworths Cookies & Cream review here.

Streets Blue Ribbon Cookies & Cream 2L: Blue Ribbon may appeal if you don’t like lots of cookies distracting you from the ice cream. It’s got 4% cookie pieces, but it’s a step down in terms of quality ingredients.

Milk fat

Milk fat plays a vital role in the texture and mouthfeel of ice cream. More of it results in a creamier, smoother texture associated with superior products.

Indulge Cookies Cream contains 13.5% milk fat. That’s much higher than family-pack ice creams like Peters, Coles, Woolworths, or Streets Blue Ribbon. It also places it in a similar category to premium brands like Murray Street and Connoisseur, and super-premium brands like Haagen-Dazs.
