Review Of Monarc Silver Scoop Cookies & Cream Ice Cream 2L

Aldi offers a selection of upscale one-litre packs in the Indulge Range. They also sell the more budget-friendly Monarc Silver Scoop line, consisting of two-litre containers.

But how does the ice cream taste?

I purchased the range to find out if it deserves a place in your freezer. This review looks at Silver Scoop Cookies & Cream Ice Cream 2L.

What’s in the pack?

Silver Scoop Cookies & Cream is an economy pack with at least 25% less fat than regular ice cream. 92% of the tub is vanilla ice cream, and 8% is cookie crumb.

Is this ice cream any good?

Silver Scoop Cookies & Cream Ice Cream is a no-frills, basic ice cream. It has a pleasant, mild flavour that will appeal to most.

If you enjoy chunky bits of cookie hidden through your ice cream, this tub may disappoint. Instead of pieces, the tub has cookie crumbs mixed throughout the ice cream.

There aren’t any big chunks of cookie.

This tub of Silver Scoop also wasn’t as smooth as its competition. It lacked the creaminess from similar-priced tubs like Blue Ribbon.

While Silver Scoop will appeal to those on a budget, you may be better off going for the Woolworths Cookies and Cream or Indulge C&C products. You get a smaller pack size, but the ice cream is better.

Why is Monarc Silver Scoop so cheap?

You may wonder why a sizeable two-litre pack of silver Scoop costs less than smaller containers like Connoisseur and Murray Street.

Using cheaper ingredients helps, but a big reason is the amount of air that gets whipped into the ice cream. Premium brands incorporate less air, providing a denser, more indulgent consistency. Cheaper brands add lots of air, which results in a lighter texture.

Monarc SS is one of the cheapest ice cream brands.

As you can see from the table below, for every 100ml, you only get 46g of Silver Scoop ice cream. This is comparable to Blue Ribbon and Bulla Creamy Classics. However, it’s much less than premium brands like Connoisseur and Haagen-Dazs.

What are the best alternatives?

Here are some tasty alternatives if you don’t have an Aldi nearby or want to try a different brand.

Connoisseur Cookies & Cream 1L: A more premium offering with 13.5% milk fat and 15% cookies. Connoisseur uses 28% cream, but it’ll cost you more.

Indulge Cookies and Cream 1L: Deliciously creamy gourmet ice cream. This is another Aldi product that’s much better than Silver Scoop.

Woolworths Cookies & Cream 1L: A more expensive product that’s a good option if you’re happy with a smaller pack size.

Streets Blue Ribbon Cookies & Cream 2L: Blue Ribbon may appeal if you like fewer cookies mixed through. It has 4% cookie pieces that are chunkier.

Milk fat

Milk fat impacts ice cream consistency. Higher levels result in a creamier, smoother mouthfeel.

Monarc Silver Scoop Cookies & Cream 2L is a reduced-fat brand. It has 3% milk fat, which means the product can’t label the front of the pack as “ice cream”.
