Ben and Jerry's Chunk Fest 2011


The much anticipated Ben and Jerry’s ChunkFest 2011 is back again for another year of ice-cream domination. ChunkFest was held this year on October 15th 2011, from 2pm till 10pm at the Promontory @ Marina Bay. Fairness is the theme for this year. Helping to spread the fairness message this year are the Fair booths, and singing about it are local bands who will battle it out fairly for a chance to perform at Sundae on the Common in the UK in 2012!


Anyway since this is a dessert blog, we should focus on the 11 flavors which are specially flown in from the USA and not available yet in Singapore. If you cannot make out from the photo above. The 11 flavors are

(1)Spice chocolate - Chocolate Ice Cream with a Hint of Moroccan-Style Spice and Loaded with Almonds
(2)Late Night Snack - Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with a Salty Caramel Swirl & Fudge covered Potato Chip Clusters
(3)Froyo Choc Fudge Brownie - Chocolatae Low Fat Frozen Yogurt with Fudge Brownies
(4)Coffee - Coffee Ice Cream
(5)Froyo Half Baked - Chocolate & Vanilla Low Fat Frozen Yogurts with Fudgey Brownies & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
(6)Butter Pecan - Rich Buttery Ice Cream with Coconut & Roasted Pecans
(7)Bonnaroo Buzz - Coffee & Malt Ice Creams with Toffee Chunks & Whiskey Caramel Swirl
(8)Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl - Chocolate Ice Cream with Thick Peanut Buttery Swirl
(9)Coconut Seven Layer Bar - Cococnut Ice cream with Coconut & Fudge Flakes, Walnuts and Swirls of Graham Cracker & Butterscotch
(10)Americone Dream - Vanilla Ice Cream with Fudge Covered Waffle Cone Pieces & a Caramel Swirl
(11)Vanilla Frozen Yogurt - Creamy Low Fat Frozen Yogurt

Yuan's stomach could only manage 4 scoops and his choices in order of preferance are (1) Bonnaroo Buzz, (2) Butter Pecan, (3) Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl and (4) Late Night Snack. Bonnaroo Buzz is one of rare Ben and Jerry's flavors with liquor. Whiskey and Caramel is really unique. On the other hand, the Late Night Snack is a little extreme. Potato Chip with Ice Cream tasted odd. What surprised me was that chocolate and peanut butter complemented pretty well and would be better than their other peanut butter flavors.

Anyway for those who missed out on Chunk Fest 2011, do look out for it next year. Also as the year comes to an end, I will be doing a review on all the Ben and Jerry's which I tried this year. Do look out for it.
