First off, if you notice the pints side by side it looks exactly the same except the Fair Trade logo is now on it and the pretzel description has slightly changed. The old version reads fudge covered peanut butter filled pretzels in vanilla malt ice cream with fudge & peanut buttery swirls, while the new Fair Trade version uses a vanilla malt ice cream with peanutty fudge covered pretzels with fudge & peanut buttery swirls.
I began with the original version first, which came chock full of pretzels. There was even one poking out of the top of the carton after removing the lid. Chubby Hubby is a flavor I haven’t had in a while, so I was looking forward to this comparison. My first bite contained a bit of pretzel, fudge and peanut butter swirl, and some of the vanilla malt ice cream. The combination compliments each other nicely. On the down side, the pretzel was only slightly crunch due to being so thin and the only peanut butter flavor I got came mostly from the swirl, not the pretzel. Although I did enjoy this, I probably won’t be revisiting it anytime soon.
