Review Of Woolworths Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream 473ml

Super-premium brands like Haagen-Dazs make impressive ice cream, but they’re not cheap. If you want something fancy without paying a fortune, the Woolworths range of 473ml tubs may be up your alley.

I bought every tub in their new range and got busy eating. This review looks at the Woolworths Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream 473ml. Find out if it’s worth a space in your freezer.

Is the ice cream any good?

A container of Woolworths Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream offers excellent value for money. The ice cream is creamy and smooth with a punchy cocoa flavour that I enjoyed.

Brownie lovers rejoice. There are deliciously chewy, decent-sized pieces strewn through the container. Combined with ribbons of choc sauce, you’ve got a winning dessert that’s hard to stop eating.

The pack size is similar to Haagen-Dazs and B&J’s.

While this brownie ice cream is excellent, keep in mind its main ingredient is water. That means it’s no match for premium 1L tubs like Connoisseur or Murray Street.

These more expensive competitors contain more milk and cream. You’ll find their texture denser and smoother with a more premium flavour.

What alternatives are there in supermarkets?

Connoisseur Chocolate Brownie 1L: Spend roughly 50% more, and you’ll get double the ice cream from Connoisseur. Both products contain 8% brownie pieces, but Connoisseur’s ice cream is better.

Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie 458ml: If you love brownie pieces, try the B&J option. It’s got a whopping 12%, double that of Connoisseur or Woolworths.


  • The ice cream has a good texture.
  • Fudgey, chewy brownie chunks.
  • Excellent value for money.
  • A great alternative to super-premium tubs.


  • Long ingredients list with water as the biggest component.
  • Low percentage of Australian-sourced 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.

Woolworths Choc Brownie ice cream contains 10% milk fat. That’s higher than most family-pack ice creams like Peters or Streets Blue Ribbon but lower than brands like Murray Street and Haagen-Dazs.
