“ Brand: Asda / Type: Ice Cream „
Asda milk choc ices come in an attractive cardboard box holding 10 choc ices individually wrapped in clear plastic wrapping. At 10p each they are the perfect thing to give the kids after tea or on a hot day. The choc is delicious on these and melts straight away on the tongue. The ice cream is lovely soft and creamy alongside the chocolate. Being suitable for vegetarians they are ideal. Found in the frozen section in asda with all the other ice creams as you would expect. One thing i find really good with these is the plastic wrapping as when u get the paper wrapping on em it goes soggy and with young ones they end up eating some of it and getting all sticky. The mess is minimized with these wrappers. Occasionally these will be included in asdas offers such as 4 x£1 items for 3 pound. They are also available with dark chocolate on in a red packet exactly the same just dark choc instead. For me on slimming world diet these are my fave treat at about 7 syns.
Since having a very sore throat I've found myself eating a lot more ice lollies than normal. While in my local Asda I decided to pick up a packet of 10 Choc ice's as they were priced at only £3 for 4 items from their £1 range I thought this was a bargain. Otherwise they are normal priced at £1. Each choc ice is individually wrapped in its own plastic paper wrapper, unlike the Tesco value Choc ice which is covered in paper these are easy to open and you don't get little bits of paper attached to the chocolate coating of the choc ice. They come in a pack of 10 in a medium sized box which is fully recyclable. Each choc ice is around 3 inches sin length 2 inches wide and just under an inch in depth, this a great size for a filling dessert or just as a snack to cool you down on those hotter days. The choc ice is made up of a lovely creamy vanilla ice cream with a thin layer of crisp milk chocolate coated around all sides of the block of ice cream. As you bit into the choc ice you can hear a lovely cracking sound when you crake the chocolate and the combination of the ice cream and the chocolate is just divine. Each flavour really sets each other off and melts smoothly away on your mouth. Overall these are a great treat for not only children but for adults as well. They are suitable for vegetarians and contain no preservatives, artificial colours or flavourings. Each choc ice contains 129 calories so be careful not to get to addicted to these during those warmer months
I'm not a big fan of ice cream but when it comes to choc ices I always seem to be able to have my arm twisted. I don't usually buy these myself as I only fancy them very occasionally, but my mum and nan both keep a box in their freezers so when the nice weather comes around and I'm at either of their houses, I often pinch one. A choc Ice is a creamy vanilla flavour rectangular block of ice cream which is coated in thin and crispy milk chocolate. As I'm not so keen on plain ice cream, the chocolate on the outside makes these a lot tastier and the chocolate is the real reason that I like them. The ice cream tastes of normal vanilla ice cream and is quite creamy and sweet. The chocolate is quite milky and creamy too and, because it's thin and hard from being freezed, it cracks as soon as you take a bite into it. A box of 10 choc ices from Asda costs only £1 which I think is great value at only 10p for each choc ice. They're actually even better value at the moment as these, along with some other ice cream desserts, are on offer for 4 for £3. The chocolate and vanilla ice cream mixed together really does make this a lovely ice cream dessert. They're not at all plain because of the addition of chocolate and they're actually pretty addictive - once I have one I usually have a few days where I can't stop fancying another one. They're perfect for both children and adults for a non-messy, simple and great value dessert and I'd really recommend these if you haven't tried them already.
My kids, as with most children, have a real penchant for ice cream and iced desserts. At Asda at the moment and for some time now, there has been an ongoing offer on the lollies and ice cream desserts, these being "2 for £3.00", though this is a god price, I do find that the amount my kids go through, what with visits from friends and nieces, I do get through these at a rate of knots, so a cheaper alternative was required. The product I will now review is - "Asda, 10 milk choc ices" I have to be honest these were my favourite as a child, it was a real treat to go the cinema on a Saturday lunchtime for the matinee performance then buy a choc ice in the interval...memories! When I first spied these the box is coloured so brightly they were the first thing that I noticed in that particular freezer. The box is a deep purple colour with all the relevant information present, brand name, product name, contents, the fact that these don't contain any artificial colours or flavourings, and also no hydrogenated fat. The box as stated earlier, contains 10 choc ices. Each ice is around 3 ½" by 2 ½", and about1 ½" deep, this a nice and substantial amount of ice cream. The chocolate covering in my opinion could do with being a little thicker, but is nice none the less. The taste is not too bad at all. The vanilla ice cream is smooth and flavoursome, with the chocolate being nice enough, the covering is not technically chocolate, but a milk chocolate flavoured coating, but I was not expecting Cadbury's when I say how much they cost! One thing I will say is that I prefer the outer wrap compared to wraps of old. The new wraps are plastic, the old ones were made of paper, and no matter how hard I tried I would always end up ingesting a good proportion of the paper, yes I know that this may have equated to a good amount of my daily fibre but never the less! The nutritional information is as follows- Per choc ice (70ml), 129 kcal, 11.6g carbohydrates, 11.1g of which sugars, 8.7g fat, 7.6g of which saturates. Allergy advice states that these contain milk and soya, and may also contain traces of nuts and/or seeds. These are however suitable for vegetarians. These cost 99p a box, as these are an Asda own branded item these will of course be available there only. For more information visit - www.asda.co.uk Thanks for reading x
