Tomorrow is Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day 2015 !

Don't miss out - tomorrow is the annual extravaganza that is Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day ! From 12-8pm, you're entitled to a free scoop in your local Ben & Jerry's store - you can find out where that is on their website.

If you're having a moral dimemma about being on a diet but not wanting to miss out, you might like to know that they have a new addition to their healthier Greek Style Frozen Yogurt range : Blueberry Cheesecake. Yum ! 

The official description says : "Greek Style Frozen Yogurt Blueberry Cheesecake is ice cream with a velvety rich Greek Style yogurt, delectable crushed cookie and burst of zingy blueberry swirls – it’s Greekin’ good, and ideal for flavour fans looking for an alternative treat that doesn’t compromise on any of the Ben & Jerry’s chunks, swirls, and scrumptiousness."

Sounds utterly delicious and they kindly sent us through a voucher to try a tub but I haven't managed to find it instore yet - I did pick up an equally delicious tub of Strawberry Shortcake Greek Style Frozen Yogurt though which was gorgeous.

It's utterly divine and it doesn't compromise on taste and wow-factor at all, despite being a lower fat option. Just glancing through the Ben & Jerry's options on my FitBug food tracker, most of the classic flavours contain 240-270 calories per 100ml whereas the frozen yogurt varieties provide 140-160. The difference in fat content is even more impressive - most of the classic Ben & Jerry's ice cream varieties have about 10-15g of fat per 100ml whereas as the frozen yogurt options have 2-4g, making them a relatively diet-friendly choice - woohoo !

We also tried out the cheekily-named Karamel Sutra from the Ben & Jerry's Core range - chocolate and caramel ice cream with chocolatey chunks and a caramel core. Imagine a Mars Bar in unctuous ice cream and you won't be far wrong !

So which flavour do you fancy trying out first?

RRP : £4.99 for a 500ml tub

Disclosure : We received a voucher in order to write an honest review.

  2. Sadly, I wasn't near a store yesterday. I love the one which has bits of cookie dough in it. Not sure what it's called.

    1. Hmmm yes, love that one too - I think that's its name actually !
