“ Type: Ice Cream „
I LOVE the Creme Egg Mcflurries in McDonalds so when I saw this Cadburys Creme Egg ice cream in Tesco I had to buy some to try. It comes in a square tub and is on special offer at the minute, a 1 litre tub for £1.99 instead of £3.99.
It's not exactly like the Mcflurry ice creams but is still proper nice. I think you're best to leave it out of the fridge for a bit before you eat it because the ice cream is a lot creamier when it's started melting a bit.
This is vanilla ice cream with pieces of chocolate and fondant going through it, it's a nice rich ice cream with a yummy vanilla flavour. It's creamy and dead smooth, the actual ice cream is lovely and smooth and it goes perfect with the mega sweet fondant sauce. It's only the yellow part of the Creme Egg filling and there isn't that much in there but it still manages to make the whole ice cream taste just like Creme Egg! It's delish!
Every mouth full you get at least a little bit of the fondant but sometimes you get lucky and get a bigger bit, that is delish and it makes you think you're eating a Mini Creme Egg but with ice cream round it instead of chocolate. The chocolate pieces are a nice edition to it and give the ice cream a nice texture, they go hard in the freezer so you get the creamy smooth ice cream and crunchy bits of chocolate. The chocolate melts quicker than I thought it would and that goes nice with the ice cream, if you get a mouth full that has got chocolate AND fondant in then you're well away and that IS like an ice cream Creme Egg!
We had some in a sugar cone today and it was delish, the ice cream melts a bit quick so you have to watch it doesn't run all down your hand if you eat it like that. Safer out of the tub with a spoon!
This is a new ice cream that has been released quite recently and has found its way onto Supermarket shelves, in its natty red packaging it looks great, it tastes of crème eggs surprisingly enough and is a sticky treat for the whole family, it is a 4 out of 5 ice cream for me, as I found the taste was wonderful and the price not too expensive for a higher end brand of ice cream.
In a natty square plastic container the ice cream really stands out, the box is bright red with a big yellow splat with the words 'Cadbury Crème Egg' inside, there is a picture of the ice cream and a blue wave with some information about how good the ice cream tastes. The container is a good size and fits easily into the freezer, it is practical and provides easy access when scooping the ice cream out, it looks good and stands out in the frozen section where most ice cream brands are a tad bland with their classy white packaging.
The Ice Cream is nice, its not too solid, its easy to scoop and with the wonderfully gooey bits of crème egg, it is a nice gooey, sticky, easy to scoop mix, it is not too hard and doesn't need defrosting and isn't too soft that it just flops on your bowl. It is a perfect consistency held together by the sticky crème egg.
I really liked the taste, it is a nice mix of boring old vanilla and the sticky crème egg, mixing chocolate and the other flavours therein, it tastes of caramel and has a nice mix of soft and sticky. The flavour isn't too sickly and is very moreish, it tastes just like a mix of crème eggs being dropped into a tub of ordinary ice cream. It isn't the kind of Ice cream to mix too well with other tastes and is probably better on its own, but its one of the nicest ice creams I've tasted in a long time.
There are 150 calories for each 100ml serving, for a fatty like me this works out at 300 calories per serving, which is probably about one sixth of my daily calorie intake requirement, but being honest when it tastes this good I don't care. There are also 5.8g of fat per 100g. You would be naive to think a dessert like this could be healthy, its a treat to eat between the endless rounds of crackers and advocado rather than a part of a healthy balanced diet!!
I presume this ice cream is available in all major supermarkets, I've found it in Tesco and Asda in prominent areas of the frozen food sections on offer.
I found this on special offer at £1.99 recently in Tesco, it remains at this price until 12 April in store and online and is also currently £1.99 instore in Asda for a 1 litre tub.
My wife and I are big ice cream lovers but we almost always go down the route of buying Ben and Jerry`s or Haagen-Dazs although if we see something that takes our fancy we are not adverse to trying it.
Both of us enjoy Cadbury cream eggs so when we saw the Cadbury cream egg ice cream on offer at half price we just had to give it a go but it was so bad it could have almost put us off our beloved cream eggs and ice cream all in one go.
The similarities between this ice cream and cream eggs stops firmly at the name, the ice cream itself is a nice vanilla ice cream but the goo through it that is supposed to emulate the fondant centre's in cream eggs is horrible, far too sweet and sickly and just not nice tasting.
The chocolate in this is ok but to be honest it is very hard to taste anything over the strong sweet taste of the goo, I had hoped this would taste like the Cadbury cream egg Mcflurry`s that you get from McDonalds but they are nothing like each other.
This is definitely not an ice cream I would recommend even at half price, incidentally this is about £3 a tub normally and you can get a decent ice cream for that price, it is also very fattening with a tenth of the tub containing over 20g of sugar, 5.7g of fat and nearly 200 calories.
I took my son out as a treat to Morrison's for lunch today but after sharing a fish and chip dinner there was no room for pudding so we hit the inside of the supermarket to do our top up shop. I spotted a selection of Cadbury creme egg Ice cream products on offer but remembered reading a very positive review on the ice cream tub on Dooyoo and at the price of £2.00 for a one litre tub I decided it was a good treat for home to end off the day. While it is a small tub is square and perfect as I have a very small freezer.
My two year old son does have a strange obsession with eggs anyway but chocolate eggs combined with ice cream are his idea of Heaven. He continually told anyone who would listen in the shop he had chocolate egg ice cream and even on the journey home announced he knew which bowl he should eat it out of.
The box itself is covered with the well know Cadbury creame egg colours and logos. It does claim to be limited edition and describes it as delicious ice cream with goo.
This does contain 150 calories and 5.8g per 100mls which is the equivalent of 62 grams of ice cream.
Contains: milk and may also contain wheat, nuts and eggs.
Unsurprisingly when we got home he was ready for a bowl. After watching Jo Frost on Tuesday I gave him a portion of approximately one Tablespoon as this is the recommended portion size for a child.
I also had a bowl although grabbed the first one I saw and didn't give it much thought and had a slightly bigger portion.
The ice cream is very smooth a creamy and reminds me of the taste of Mr Whippy ice cream. The Ice cream is mixed with swirls of yellow fondant egg and chunks of chocolate. I love the chunks of chocolate in it they seem large enough that you can taste and bite through the chocolate but small enough that you don't end up been overwhelmed by chocolate. I did find the yellow fondant very sweet and needed to make sure I didn't have too much in one mouthful as that then seemed to taste to sickly.
I found that as this was so sweet a small portion was very satisfying and could control any sweet craving.
I recommend this ice cream for anyone with a sweet tooth. I can't see this lasting long in our house. I am very happy with the offer price however I not sure I would pay more.
OMG....I am officially in Ice cream heaven. I tried Cadbury's Cream Egg Icecream for the first time last night and I think I have officially found the best flavour ice cream in the world.
I am normally a mint choc chip girl and to be honest when my mum brought this home as a treat I really didnt think it sounded too nice. I mean as much as I love cadbury's cream eggs, I'm not a fan of vanilla ice cream and thought this could be a bit boring. Little did I know.
The tub we bought looked different to the picture above, it was a red square tub with the creme egg logo on the front. When you open the lid it doesnt look anything special, it just looks like vanilla ice cream with an orange sqirl and a few chocolate pieces thrown in.
This icecream however is no boring vanilla....the main white base actually is much sweeter and actually tastes like the fondant centre of the creme egg. The orange swirl also just tastes like the sweet fondant , I was worried it would taste ornagey (I think the colour just put me off!)
To combat the ultra soft, fondanty sweetness of the ice cream you have the crunchy chocolate pieces. These are not the usual thick chunks or chips you usually get in Icecream, in fact they were thinner slices of chocolate. My only criticism would be really that I would have liked more chocolate or thicker pieces as the chocolate got lost in the ice cream.
As this was so sweet it probably would get a bit sickly if you ate too mouch, but I havea sweet tooth so could manage alot of it before this bothered me!
But overall this was still genuinely the nicest Icecream I have tried in a really really long time. I will be recommending every one to buy it this easter and I will be stocking up before they stop selling it!
My Dad came home with this earlier from his Tesco shop. He said he bought it as it was on offer - £1.99 instead of £3.99, and I cannot believe that an ice-cream like his could sell for £3.99!!
The tub is bright and colourful, and is very sturdy and I am planning on using the tub for other things once it has been finished as I think it will last a while.
The tub holds 1 litre of icecream and with our family of five each having 2-3 scoops each, it has almost all gone!
The ice cream is white and has lots of chocolate pieces which are flat rather than chunky, and has random swirls of yellow "goo".
The icecream is strange to look at - the white part is very fluffy and looks very light. To taste, I found it very nice, but very, very rich and overly sweet and nice and has a strong vanilla flavour.
The chocolate is lovely and the goo is tasty too and makes a nice addition, although I don't think it tastes particularly like a creme egg! The icecream is rather like the limited edition Creme Egg McFlurry that is sometimes available.
This is definately not an ice-cream for dieters (although what is?!), as only a tenth of the tub has 20.5g sugar, 5.7g fat!!
I wouldn't buy this again, it is nice but too sickly and I don't think I need to encourage myself to eat such sugary icecream!!
Firstly, I love creme eggs but am not a lover of ice cream. But this is awesome, creamy vanilla ice cream with yellow goo and chocolate bits. An ice cream to die for.
This was on offer in our local Tesco and because I was doing on-line shopping and wanted to make my order up to £50, to get a discount I added one of these on a whim. Usual RRP £1.99, on offer at £1.00.
Its a square , hard plastic tub (great for other uses once empty as its fairly sturdy )which contains 1 litre of ice cream.
The ice cream is a rich vanilla flavour which tastes expensive with blobs of yellow fondant here and there, with chocolately pieces placed randomly through out.
I know Mc Donalds had one like this, around Easter time, but this tastes more luxurious. And is more solid than a Mcflurry.
Theres a warning on the side which says this product contains eggs, its not a joke, this is a serious issue for you allergy sufferers.
Overall this product is expensive, but as a treat now and then its not so bad for special occasions, thers 4 of us and we had a generous portion each (3 scoops) so theres not much left, perhaps enough for two at a push. Very flattening, no good for dieters when thers 20.5g sugar, 5.7g fat per 100ml. (Tenth of a tub)
I have seen this for sale at £3.29 in one of the leading supermarkets and theres no way its worth this amount. But I will be using the plastic tub, its bright and colourful for a childs snack box for school.
This is a Review of CADBURY CREME EGG ICE CREAM. (the title of the review is a big ambiguous so I just wanted to clarify..).
*My First Encounter with the Creme Egg Ice Cream*
I had one of those moments in the supermarket last winter where something caught my eye and I just stopped in my tracks and looked on in awe..... I had seen CREME EGG ICE CREAM! It was on sale too - in the reduced aisle as the lid was a little cracked on one edge. 1 litre for £1- Bargain! I had to buy it as I such a fan of creme eggs- an ice cream version I figured was just too good to be true.
The tub I bought (that is still on sale in supermarkets as I saw a tub in Morrisons two days ago) is a red plastic square tub (not exactly the same as in the photo here) measuring 13.5 cm square and 8cm high. It is a 1 litre tub. The pack opens by you snapping off a tab on the rim of the red plastic box. The plastic box can be re-used too as a pseudo tupperware box with lid.
When you open the pack you are faced with white ice cream that has bits of chocolate and bits of the yellow fondant bit you get in creme eggs mixed through it. The box describes the ice cream as "Vanilla flavour ice cream with milk chocolate pieces and fondant sauce".
*Ingredients/ Pack Information*
The ingredients and information is all on the base of the box (so you have to turn it all upside down or hold it over your head to read the ingredients and fat content- very clever!). I'm not going to list all the ingredients as the list is very long...The main ingredients seem to be partially reconstituted dried skimmed milk, fondant sauce (11%), modified waxy maize starch. flavouring and milk chocolate.
There are nine "E" numbers for example so if you have children who are sensitive to E numbers, I would keep this away from them. It also contains milk and "may contain" wheat, egg and nuts. I find the "egg" reference quite amusing due to this being a creme egg ice cream but I am sure it is actually a serious allergy reference.
The nutritional information is printed really really small- Per 100mls (1/10 of the tub) 150 calories and 5.8g of fat. This is a bit better than I thought but it would be VERY easy to sit with a spoon infront of the TV and just eat away at this and before you know it half of the tub is gone (ahem). It is VERY moreish and I found myself heading for the yellow fondant clusters in the ice cream like a fondant seeking spoon-wielding missile...that left a lot of holes in the ice cream! I do this with Ben & Jerry's too- go hunting for the cookie dough in the ice cream!
From the first spoon of this, Mr Norton saw the look on my face and instantly said "Oh, I can see i'm not going to get any of that then" .... I told him to get in there quick or, no, there may not be any left next time he went to the freezer. I don't buy ice cream more than two or three times a year or I would have to join some slimming club! It is a rare treat for me.
It tastes like really nice fresh white ice cream- creamy but not sickly or over the top just a good white ice cream with chocolate bits and really lush yellow fondant through it like a sauce (in the same way as raspberry ripple has the raspberry sauce running through it). I don't normally get on with chocolate pieces in ice cream as I find the chocolate does not melt in your mouth it just collects and tastes a bit oily.. but I did not have this problem here as the chocolate pieces seem finer almost like a flake has been bashed up and added in.
I laughed at the storage instructions as it says "If kept frozen below -18C this product can be stored for 3 months from the date of purchase or until the best before date whichever is sooner". There is no chance this was going to sit around in the freezer for more than a few days! In an attempt to not eat the whole thing in one go- I limited myself to spooning this out into a small ramekin and eating it with the smallest baby teaspoon I could find. Even doing this the box lasted around a week! The tub does seem very small for a 1litre tub.
The box I had last winter ago stated "Limited edition". I have seen this ice cream on sale recently so I am not sure if Cadbury's are only selling this during "Creme Egg Season" (that's January to April for those non chocaholics out there) or if it sold so well they have decided to keep it on sale for a while, or if the "limited" period is a long one!
I would DEFINITELY recommend this if you like ice cream, if you like creme eggs and if you want a product that is like a much sturdier, less "soft" version of a McFlurry. Well done Cadburies.
I don't eat a lot of ice cream, but I do enjoy a Creme Egg McFlurry from McDonalds when they are available. So when wandering around my local Morrison's the other day, I spotted the familiar Creme Egg packaging looking up at me from a free-standing freezer in the middle of the aisle, I had to take a closer look.
I wasn't aware that Cadbury made Creme Egg ice cream and had never seen it before, but on closer inspection I decided I would have to have some!
The packaging :- The ice cream comes in a square plastic box, not the rounded shape as shown on the photo here. The box is quite small, around 5" x 5" but is quite deep, and has the familiar Creme Egg design of red, purple and yellow. The tub contains 1 litre of ice cream.
It also states it is a Limited Edition, which I am saddened to read as after tasting this ice cream, it is definately something I will want to buy again and again!
On the lid it states 'Delicious Ice Cream with added goo' and that sums it up perfectly I think. The ice cream is smooth white vanilla, with added Cadbury chocolate pieces and that gorgeous yellow fondant sauce that you find in Creme Eggs, swirled through it.
It tastes delicious and very much like a Creme Egg McFlurry, so if you like those you will not be disappointed!
It does say that it may contain nuts so please be aware if you suffer from a nut allergy, and also may contain wheat.
A 62g (100ml) serving contains 150 calories which I don't think is too bad for a treat, even if you're meant to be on a diet like myself!
I had some fresh strawberries with mine and it was lovely. My daughter had a nougat wafer with hers, which looked very tempting but I was good and stuck with the strawberries!
All in all this is the best ice cream ive bought for a long time, and its just a shame it's not going to be available all year round. Maybe that's probably a good thing though in some respects, as my diet may have to be abandoned otherwise!
A 1 litre tub of Creme Egg ice cream is currently on offer at Morrisions for £1.92, which is a pound cheaper than the usual price.
Get some while it's available!
Delicious ice cream with added goo.
