Is the ice cream any good?

Peters Original Banana Split is a frozen dessert that won’t provide the delicious smooth creaminess of regular ice cream. However, it’s still a decent product that tastes great and is easy to scoop.

It’s also affordable, costing much less than most premium brands.

Three flavours will appeal to households that can never agree on what to buy at the supermarket. If Neapolitan is getting repetitive or you’re tired of the strawberry section not getting eaten, Banana Split offers something different.

Peters whips a lot of air into this ice cream to keep costs down. This process creates a light, airy, foamy texture. It’s much less dense and indulgent than products like Haagen-Dazs, but most kids won’t notice the difference.

Milk fat

Milk fat impacts ice cream consistency. Higher levels result in a creamier, smoother mouthfeel. The Peters range has less than 10% milk fat, which means the product can’t be called ice cream.

It’s icier and less indulgent than ice cream with higher milk fat, but most Australians still enjoy it.
