The crumbliest, flakiest ice cream
Cadbury Flake (Ice Cream)

Cadbury Flake (Ice Cream)
Advantages: Contains chocolate
Disadvantages: Price, ice cream not much taste to it
I'm a big ice cream fan but get bored with the plain old vanilla and strawberry varieties. Ben & Jerry's is great, but a bit too pricey to buy on a regular basis. One week when I was perusing the freezer cabinets at Tesco, a bright yellow tub jumped out a me. Well, not literally, thankfully. Ooo, Cadbury's Flake Ice Cream.
"Deliciously luxurious vanilla ice cream with pieces of Cadbury Flake milk chocolate," it said on the lid.
That sounds good I thought, and even better it had 79p off and was down to £2.00. A tub then did literally jump into my trolley - with a little help of course ;)
I resisted the temptation to try it when I got home and waited until after tea.
As with many ice creams, when it's been in the freezer it's rock hard and almost impossible to get a scoop into. I always leave it out for a few minutes to soften a bit.
It's a nice creamy colour of ice cream, not white but not yellowy either, with good chunks of chocolate flake in it.
I was a bit disappointed with the taste of the ice cream. It was supposed to be vanilla, but didn't really taste of vanilla, or much else really.
The crumbly Flake bits didn't let down, and tasted like chocolate never tasted before!
Partially Reconstituted Buttermilk (why's it only been partially reconstituted? Surely fully reconstituted would be better?), Milk Chocolate (11%) (Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifiers (E442, E476), Flavourings), Glucose Syrup, Coconut Oil, Sugar, Dried Whey, Emulsifier (E471), Natural Flavourings, Stabilisers (E410, E412, E407), Natural Colours (Curcumin, Annatto)
Per 100ml of ice cream:
It comes in a 1 litre yellow & purple square tub, which I find fits better in the freezer than the round tubs some ice creams come in.
Strangely enough it's not actually made by Cadbury, but by Frederick's Dairies Ltd under licence from Cadbury. I used to live in the Lancashire area so know Frederick's ice creams well and they do normally make a good ice cream.
A 1 litre tub will set you back £2.79 at Tesco, but watch out for it on special offer.
A Cadbury Dairy Milk Ice Cream is also available.
Would I buy it again? Yes, but only if it was on offer. The Dairy Milk ice cream has more taste to it, so I'd buy that one before I bought the Flake ice cream again.
Summary: Worth buying if on special offer
