REVIEW: Sam's Choice Butterscotch Salted Chocolate Fudge


As I quickly scanned the ice cream aisle in my local Walmart Super-center, I found a flavor from Sam's Choice that we hadn't previously covered on our blog. Butterscotch is an inspiration for ice cream that I thoroughly enjoy, but sadly, it's not used very often. Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch from Ben & Jerry's is the most notable butterscotch themed ice cream of late, and one that we all enjoyed. This quart sized container of Butterscotch Salted Chocolate Fudge holds 8 half cup servings of butterscotch ice cream with thick salted chocolate fudge swirls.


"Thick" was an understatement. From start to finish, large rigid stripes of chocolate snaked through the beige colored butterscotch base, adding a bold, salty chocolate finish to most every bite. The consistency of the actual ice cream was similar to other super-premium ice creams and at only 200 calories per serving, isn't the worst option either. As usual, the creative flavor combinations and larger than life mix-ins and swirls from Sam's Choice continues to earn them As.

  1. I thought this flavor really disappointed, honestly. There was I think one piece (albeit BIG) of funny-tasting chocolate, and that's the problem- it was a piece. Soft swirls would have worked 100x better.

  2. Nope, nope, nope! I've gotten half way through the container and haven't found even the tiniest bit of fudge swirl; there's only butterscotch ice cream. Don't waste your money.

  3. Addictively good! It usually have a very generous amount of salted fudge. Try it with real whipped cream! perfection!

  4. The butterscotch ice cream itself is yummy, but....the fudge "swirls" are more like fudge cement. Ever try eating a gigantic, solid candy bar with a spoon? Yeah. Doesn't work! The container was easily 50% HARD chocolate "swirls" that made the ice cream impossible to eat.

    They should have made fudge chips. Never again.
