Murray St Ice Creamery Banoffee 1L is a relatively new ice cream in Australian supermarket freezers. It hit the shelves at the same time as the Choc Mint Sundae variant. This review looks at whether it’s worth your money.
Bulla produces Murray Street Ice Creamery Banoffee Ice Cream as part of a range of one-litre tubs. The brand is positioned as a premium product competing head-on with Connoisseur. It is more affordable than super-premium brands like Haagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s.
Bulla describes these tubs as the “creamiest premiumest” ice cream they make.
Is it worth the money?
Bulla Murray St Banoffee starts with banana flavoured ice cream and adds ribbons of toffee caramel sauce. It’s a delicious ice cream that most should enjoy if they like the taste of banana.
The banana ice cream base is what you would expect from Murray St Ice Creamery products. It’s incredibly creamy and indulgent, thanks to fresh cream, milk, and free-range egg yolk.
Driving my spoon into the frozen dessert revealed hidden pockets of caramel sauce. Unlike some mix-ins that turn hard and icy once frozen, this one quickly turned mouth-wateringly oozy once removed from the freezer.
Murray St. Banoffee is a delicious craft-style ice cream that should appeal to most. The banana ice cream is soft and creamy without too much sweetness. You’ll notice the taste of banana, but it doesn’t smack you in the face.
The sauce adds a slight saltiness, perfect for balancing out sweetness. There’s only 8% sauce in the tub. I’d like to have seen more.
Fresh milk, cream, and free-range egg yolk give the ice cream an indulgent premium feel. The texture is soft and easily scoopable. It is rich, delicious, and tough to stop eating.
The Murray Street Ice Cream range is made in Australia using local cream, milk, and egg yolks.
23% of this frozen dessert is milk and cream, providing a creamier, more premium product. Cheaper alternatives typically include more water, reconstituted skim milk, and other low-cost ingredients.
Toffee caramel sauce makes up 8% of the tub’s contents.
Ingredients list: Fresh milk, fresh cream (milk) (23%), sugar, water, milk solids, dextrose, sweetened condensed milk, glucose syrup, butter (milk), egg yolk, vegetable fat, emulsifiers (471, 422), burnt sugar, thickeners (guar gum, pectin, carrageenan), natural flavours, colour (caramel i), salt, acidity regulator (339).
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.
Murray St Banoffee ice cream contains 12% milk fat. That’s higher than most family-pack ice creams like Blue Ribbon Streets or Peters but lower than brands like Haagen-Dazs.
