“ Brand: Cadbury / Type: Ice Cream „
Fudge is a classic, around for years and at a price that everyone can afford. This has put it into the hearts of thousands, so expanding the Fudge brand can only be a good thing. However, the ice cream is very disappointing. It has lovely ice cream of very high quality, and a nice smell but at a high price and it doesn't even contain any real fudge!
The packaging of the product is very easy to read and recognise, using the existing Fudge branding. The product is always fresh but the box is very thin so the product can be squashed if you misplay it in some way. Then, when you get to the individual products, it is similar to Cornetto's. It is very thin so it can sometimes be ripped, and the product can be damaged. The product always looks nice in the packaging, with a clear plastic piece covering the top. However, it is very hard to hold if it is wet so it can fall onto the floor.
When you open the product, a nice sweet smell drifts into your nose. This will encourage you to take a bite. When you do, you get a disappointing flavour, with only chocolate flavoured ice cream coming through, when you expect to taste fudge. This is very soft and then you get a nice mix of textures when the crunchy cone is introduced. They work very well together. The ice cream will start to melt, however, the best surprise comes at the end with a nice chunk of Dairy Milk at the bottom. This takes along time to melt in your mouth and is very satisfying.
The product's quality is good, with high quality ice cream and always the same great taste. However, you don't get any fudge which ruins the promise of ice cream.
The ice cream is very addicting and you will always want more. However, it isn't very filling.
Also, it is very expensive, costing 2.49 for 4! This is terrible as you can get 4 Cornetto's for around 1.29 in most stores, and they are much better.
Overall, a great promise that fails to deliver. The ice cream is too sweet and is very disappointing as it contains no fudge. The price is expensive and it doesn't fill you up. Cadbury's usual quality continues but if you want a really nice ice cream experience, go and buy a Cornetto.
The sound of these caught my eye; ice cream and fudge, when it's warm weather, sounds delicious! Although I do like these, I can't help but feel slightly disappointed by the lack of fudgey goodness that was promised on the box.
Chocolate Fudge Cones are produced by Cadbury's and are sold in boxes of 4, found in the freezer isle by other boxed ice-creams. A box will cost you around £2.49, though Tesco are currently offering them at half price (July 09). Considering these remind me of a 99 whippy, £2.49 is a good price for 4, though I wouldn't buy in future these unless they are on offer.
The box is mainly purple, with a large orange swirl and an image of the temptations that await inside it. The ice-creams are described as a 'crisp biscuit cone filled with fudge and chocolate flavour ice creams and fudge flavour sauce'. Unlike the image on the review page, these no longer seem to come with the fudge balls. Each cone has a paper wrapper around it which you can easily tear off, and the top is covered over with a protective plastic dome, so your ice-cream should retain its shape by the time you've got it home.
With or without fudge balls, you'd expect plenty of fudge-flavour from these, given there's fudge flavoured ice cream and sauce. Unfortunately, I didn't think this was quite as noticeable as expected. When you take your cone out of the box, it's of average size and you can smell some chocolately goodness. But when the dome is taken off, there's not much in the way of fudge sauce to be seen. In fact, I saw none.
The ice-cream itself is a mix of chocolate and fudge, though the chocolate seems more noticeable. It's very tasty, relatively rich but not too sweet, and you get enough in your cone for it to be fulfilling. The cone itself is also quite tasty, unlike some I've had that have tasted like plain damp cardboard. This is probably thanks to the chocolate on the inside of it, and the luscious chocolate filling at the bottom of the cone. Once you've worked your way to the bottom, you'd expect either a hole in the cone that you hadn't yet noticed and get annoyed that ice-cream has dripped through all over you (which has happened to me a few times now!) or a plain bit of wafer. But no, with these you get a lovely chunky filling of chocolate, which was a nice little surprise :o)
Each cone contains 196 calories and 9g fat, so it's around average compared to similar ice-cream products, though has less fat/calories and is much less filling than something such as a Magnum.
Overall, I would recommend these if they're on offer, though I personally won't be rushing out to buy them at full price. They're tasty, if not a tad disappointing, but in general are very enjoyable to eat.
It's a very hot day today so to cool myself down I decided to try a Cadbury's ice cream, I was visiting my daughter and she always has a big selection of ice creams in her freezer so after much deliberation I chose a Chocolate Fudge Cone because it appeals to me more than the other flavours she has.
This ice cream is just like a Cornetto but is swirly on the top instead of flat, meaning the ice cream needs a kind of little plastic hat attached to the paper which wraps around the cone. It puts me in mind more of a real whippy cone rather than the compacted ice cream that I have come to expect from Cornetto's.
The ice cream is patches of chocolate flavoured ice cream and patches of what is supposed to be fudge flavoured. I say supposed to be because I honestly cannot taste any hint of fudge in this ice cream and as fudge/toffee is my favourite flavour ice cream I must admit I am rather disappointed. The overwhelming taste is of a nice quality chocolate ice cream, but then again if I wanted chocolate ice cream I would have opened a tub of my favourite Neapolitan!
The cone is nice and crispy with a layer of Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate inside which serves to separate the ice cream from the crunchy cone and thus keep the cone from going soggy as the ice cream warms and melts slightly when it is out of the freezer. The bottom end of the cone is also plugged with a generous serving of Dairy Milk chocolate and this was actually my favourite part of the ice cream because the chocolate took quite a while to melt in my mouth as it had been covered with cold ice cream.
Overall I think this is quite a sweet ice cream and not one that I think is really special enough to buy again. I think the fudge flavouring could have been stronger, and the chocolate flavouring could have been weaker to compensate for this. I was really looking forward to eating a nice fudgey ice cream, and hoping to find some toffee pieces in there too for some reason even though this was not mentioned on the box.
One thing that was mentioned on the box was a fudge sauce, this is a complete let down as the sauce is only a few squiggles of fudge coloured shiny stuff on top of the ice creams and again there is absolutely no flavour of fudge in the slightest.
As ice creams these are perfectly acceptable because they are good quality and nicely chocolate flavoured, but these 4 ice creams cost my daughter about £2.49 which I think is appalling value considering my local frozen food shop sells 4 Cornetto's for just £1.29! She bought them from Tesco, where they are on special offer at the moment at £1.24 along with other ice cream bars such as Mars and Snickers. With 196 calories and 9g of fat per Cone they are not the worst ice creams out there, but for all those calories I'd have preferred something a little bit more special.
This has to be my favorite ice cream of all time.
These are 4 for £1 in farmfoods.
once again the chocolate contained in this ice cream tastes great as it is cadburys.
The cornet doesnt go soggy when your ice cream begins to melt, you have got chocolate in the bottom of the cone, a long, thin piece of fudge running all the way up fron the bottom of the cone to the top which has a lovely creamy tasting ice cream all around it and then when you get to the top you have got a toffee sauce running through the top piece of ice cream and lots of little fudge pieces sprinkled on top.
For any one who loves fudge or toffee this ice cream is great all the different fudge pieces and toffee sauce give a lovely creamy fudge taste that is realy nice and not too sickly, the cone is crispy and sweet and the fudge running through the middle is slightly chewy.
As the new style of cadburys cone has a swirley top not a flat one they now package these with a clear plastic domb on the top of the paper wrapper instead of the old piece of flat cardboard
Give yourself a treat with this crisp wafer cone filled with milk chocolate and vanilla ice cream, swirled with fudge sauce then topped with Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate coated fudge pieces.
