I reckon I'm the only person in the UK who doesn't like this Chocolate Arctic Roll that Birds Eye have brought back after years of Arctic Roll not being available. It's basically a roll of chocolate ice cream that has been covered in chocolate sponge with a swirl of chocolate sauce going through it. I'm a big time chocolate lover so thought I'd enjoy this pudding, but I didn't at all because I thought it tasted mega cheap and isn't as chocolatey as it looks. The ice cream is quite rich but it hasn't got a very strong chocolate flavour, it's deffo more Tesco Value than Ben And Jerrys! lol It's not very creamy when you're eating it and I think the ...

Up until the advertisements and offers on Birds Eye Arctic Roll I'd never tried the sponge and ice-cream combo, and I never knew Birds Eye did deserts either! I think these were once in fashion as a desert as the box says 'it's back!', and apparently 'better than ever before' but I must have missed out first time around. I trust Birds Eye to produce quality food that tastes good, but I was surprised to find their chocolate ice-cream, which is quite different to most of their range of chicken/fish/veg, is actually very tasty. I think chocolate & ice-cream count as 'good mood food' for most people, and their triple chocolate arctic roll provides a rich ... Read the complete review

As soon as I spotted this little box of nostalgia in the realm of wonders that is my local Morrison's freezer aisle I knew that I had to have it. With the words "It's back!" emblazoned boldly on its front, Birds Eye have brought back the exotic dessert of my youth with a twist - chocolate flavoured. I last ate an arctic roll in about 1976. For those of you too young to remember that was the Summer of the drought, in my memory it was a halcyon time of no school for weeks, and plenty of very hot days that meant more copious amounts of ice cream than normal. We hadn't heard of global warming back then. Arctic roll was a real treat, the original one ... Read the complete review

I was wandering around Sainsburys last night looking for something exciting to have for tea. My favourite trick is to try and buy food that is on special offer and that's how I came across this product. I've been getting the Tesco brand of Arctic Roll for about the past year, as my husband has been relieving his childhood through ice cream(!), so as a special treat, I bought one for us to share. Currently priced at £1, but I think the normal price is about £1.90. For your £1 you get a fairly small box with 260g of roll inside. One roll is designed to serve 5 people. Each portion has 115 calories and 3.2g fat, so if you're looking for a small ... Read the complete review

The tagline reads 'It's Back!' and it certainly. I couldn't remember the last time I had Arctic Roll, to the point where what it actually is confused me when I saw it in the freezer at my local Tesco the other day. I don't normally get many puds when I do the shop, but I made an exception here and put it in my trolley. After all, it was only £1, and had stirred up some long forgotten memories. Essentially, Arctic Roll is just like a regular Swiss Roll or jame roll, only the filling is ice cream instead of a complete roll of jam or chocolate and sponge. It presents itself in a roll/log, with the outside being a thin chocolate sponge, and the inside being milk ... Read the complete review
