If Vermont legends Ben and Jerry have proved anything over the years, it’s that if something is even slightly sweet, you can probably squash it into a creamy, frozen pint with delicious results. On the surface, extravagant combinations like bubblegum and Chunky Monkey could sound a little OTT. The truth is they’re all universally yummy.
While some tasty combos sound a little strange on paper, others make total sense from the off. Take the latest ice cream innovation from Belgian bakers Lotus. Not content with selling some of the world’s tastiest caramelised biscuits, the company’s development team has decided to up the ante, offering a new ice cream mixed with fudgy brownie chunks. Vermont’s finest are probably looking, slightly nervously, over their shoulder.
The new flavour, which is currently being stocked at British supermarket ASDA, as well as at Target stores in the US, certainly promises to pack a punch. As it states in the product description on the Target website:
“When a unique cookie meets delicious ice cream. The story of Lotus Biscoff starts in 1932 in Lembeke, a Belgian town. The unique recipe was brought to perfection with carefully selected ingredients. Today, Lotus Bakeries is still family-owned and based in its home town. Here’s the scoop: a masterpiece of dairy ice cream, crunchy Lotus Biscoff cookies and cookie butter paired with chewy chocolate brownie.”

The ice cream has already attracted a lot of attention in the UK thanks to a photo shared by popular British Instagrammer @newfoodsuk, whose snap of the new treat has already generated over 5,000 likes on the popular platform.
The reaction in the comments was overwhelmingly positive, with one fan writing, “need this!” and another simply adding, “want it.” It might be a far cry from ordinary vanilla and chocolate, but this is one ice cream blend that looks like it could spice up any dessert in the best way possible.
