Quick overview

Murray Street Ice Creamery’s Chocolate and Fudge Ripple is a top-tier ice cream available in supermarkets across Australia. Crafted by Bulla, it’s one of six delectable flavours in their one-litre lineup.

Murray Street Ice Creamery positions itself at the top end of the ice cream category, rivalling brands like Connoisseur. However, it offers a more wallet-friendly option than ultra-luxury brands like Ben & Jerry’s and Haagen-Dazs.

Bulla describes this range as their “creamiest premiumest” ice cream. The packaging is a one-litre tub featuring a simple, retro-style design.

Is this tub any good?

Reviewing chocolate ice cream is always challenging. Everyone has an opinion on how it should taste. Murray Street Creamery’s version has a delicious combination of creamy, not-too-sweet chocolate ice cream with ribbons of flowing fudge.

The ripple is nice and runny, not icy or hard.

The ice cream base has a strong chocolate flavour. If you prefer a less intense taste, options like Bulla Real Dairy Chocolate Ice Cream may be better. I’d recommend Bulla Real Dairy if you’re feeding kids.

Murray Street Chocolate and Fudge Ripple Ice Cream boasts the use of fresh milk and rich cream. These contribute to a base with a deliciously creamy, smooth consistency.

Incorporating free-range egg yolks lends an undeniable richness to the ice cream. It provides a texture you won’t get from most cheaper brands.

  • Tasty ribbons of fudge sauce run through the container. 
  • An excellent choice for those who find chocolate ice cream boring without add-ins.
  • At 1 litre, it’s more affordable than a tub of Haagen-Dazs Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream.
  • It’s a treat for anyone who loves plenty of chocolatey flavor.

Are there better alternatives for the money?

For families, there are more affordable, kid-friendly options like Bulla Real Dairy Chocolate Ice Cream. Keep in mind that this alternative doesn’t include fudge ripple.

Connoisseur Belgian Chocolate is the same price and a comparable product with a similar sauce. A tub of Connoisseur has 9% sauce, while Murray St has 7%.

Haagen-Dazs Belgian Chocolate is a premium ice cream for the big spenders. It has more “real ingredients” and less of all the extras like added flavours and stabilisers. This shines through in the final product, which is exceptional.

Murray Street Ice Cream contains 23% cream and milk, setting itself apart from many budget brands that lean on less enticing fillers.

A deeper dive into the origins of ingredients would be helpful. The pack (or website) should answer questions like where the chocolate is sourced. Celebrating the growers and farmers behind the flavours? Now, that’s a story worth telling.

Ingredients list: Fresh milk, fresh cream (milk) (23%), sugar, water, milk solids, cocoa solids (2.5%), glucose syrup, dextrose, emulsifiers (422, 471), egg yolk, thickeners (guar gum, 1442, carrageenan, locust bean gum), natural flavours, natural colour (vegetable carbon), salt, acidity regulator (citric acid).

Milk fat

Milk fat is the secret to ice cream excellence. Murray St Creamery’s Chocolate and Fudge Ripple boasts 12% milk fat. Less than super-premium offerings but higher than the amount found in many budget alternatives.
