Many Australian consumers consider supermarket home brand ranges inferior. But how does the Woolworths ice cream range compare to its rivals? I bought the whole range and ate them to find out.
This review looks at Woolworths Triple Chocolate Ice Cream. Keep reading to find out if it’s worth a place in your freezer.
Is Woolworths Triple Chocolate Ice Cream any good?
Each one-litre tub contains chocolate ice cream with ribbons of chocolate sauce and chocolate chips. The ice cream is deliciously creamy and smooth, with a chocolate flavour that’s not too “in your face”.
The ripple adds some gooey, sweet chocolately flavour to the frozen dessert. It turns into smooth, flowing lava if you give the tub time to soften before eating.
This tub is one of the best chocolate ice creams on the market, especially for the price.
The only change I’d make to this product is replacing the choc chips with chocolate flakes. The current chips are hard and lack flavour, like they almost always do once frozen.
Thankfully, the tub isn’t loaded with chips, so they don’t have a big impact.

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