Arctic Roll: AKA School Ice Cream. I remember looking forward to Friday school dinners, when I got to look forward to either jelly or ice cream for dessert. The Arctic Roll was the only ice cream they ever served, but I loved it! The ice cream is in the shape of a cylinder with vanilla ice cream wrapped in sponge, with a layer of raspberry circling the ice cream beneath the sponge. The Birds Eye Arctic Roll also has a layer of raspberry jam circling in the middle of the ice cream, but there are other arctic rolls that offer the ice cream without the second layer of raspberry jam. I quite like them both, I've never been a fan of raspberry, but you almost ... Read the complete review

I was so excited the other day when walking around the locasl supermarket. I spotted an old favourite of mine in the freezer isle, that took me straight back to my school days. Artic rol is such a retro pudding. I had to buy it straight away so that my children could sample this delicious desert that played such a big part in my childhood. When I would return from school, I would sometimes go straight to my nannas. She would always serve a delicious tea and for afters we would always have this artic roll for desert as she new it was my favourite. Birds eye first brought out artic roll in 1967. Basically it is vanilla icecream with swirls of ... Read the complete review

I used to eat Arctic Roll all the time when I was little but, having grown up and now buying my own food, I very rarely eat this. Occasionally on a shopping trip though, I'll come across it and really fancy some, being reminded of how much I used to enjoy it. Birds Eye stopped making their Arctic Rolls a while ago for some reason but they're back and they now seem be in every single supermarket I go in. For those mad people who haven't tried it before, Arctic Roll is made from a vanilla flavoured ice cream which has a swirl of raspberry sauce through it and is then wrapped in sponge cake. The shape of it is like a log so you simply cut off as much ... Read the complete review

I am not a big ice cream fan mainly down to the calories in most ice creams although I do love to have a little treat now and again, also with buying ice cream tubs you never know how many calories you are consuming! Especially if you are like me and you go back for seconds! Arctic roll is somewhat different to most ice creams out there; in fact it is a bit of a classic. I remember my mum buying this when I was a kid, then I don't remember seeing it for ages and ages until last week I was having a look at the Ice creams in Asda and spotted this next to the mousses! I just fancied buying one, and am glad I did! ***What it is ... Read the complete review

It's not that I'm mean or can't be bothered but desserts aren't often served up for my family as we mainly prefer savoury rather than sweet dishes so it's a bit of a treat when they get 'afters'! I couldn't resist, however, adding 2 x Birds Eye Raspberry Arctic Rolls to my shopping basket when I was on Tesco's website as they had a BOGOF so I got them for £1.90. Each one is approx 5.5" long, cellophane wrapped in a carton exactly as shown in the picture. The weight of each is 260g & the recommended way of serving is to slice it into 5 portions - however I think in this case more is better. The full ingredients & list of ... Read the complete review
