“ Type: Sorbets & Ice Cream „
Forgot that this is an ice cream for a minute and you might remember that there is a Cadbury's chocolate bar called Dream, a rather divine treat's one of the few white chocolate bars on the market, and is certainly one of the best. Turning this into an ice cream was a magnificent idea, and while Magnum have perhaps cornered the market, there's room for this, too, a gorgeous treat that goes down particularly well on a hot Summer's day, but is just as nice during our present Winter months!
To distinguish it from Magnum's own white chocolate stick is quite a challenge, but close inspection of the Dream will cause you to notice little green and blue specs of flavouring that give it a slightly different taste to the Magnum. It's almost a "je ne sais quois" thing, but it gives it a bit more of a tang, while not necessarily being better or worse than the White Magnum.
Like every ice cream on a stick, the satisfaction for me is getting that first bite into the crunchy shell holding the cream together. This ice cream certainly satiates that craving, while also having a deliciously soft, creamy texture underneath. Of course, you have to lick the stick clean meticulously afterwards, also!
If you're one to shop around for deals, beware of corner shops selling these because they'll charge close to £1 when you can buy multipacks in supermarkets for about the same price, which is an absolute steal for such delicious, quality product, if you ask me!
Honestly, I don't think I could tell the difference between this and a White Magnum in a blind taste test, but that isn't to criticise either; they both taste great and are very satisfying on a hot day in particular!
I am a huge fan of the cadburys confectionary range. Overall I feel not many of their products can be beaten. The classic, dairy milk is far superior to every other brand and tastes really good. I was hoping they could transfer this magic to this latest product, Cadburys dream ice cream which I had picked up whilst on special offer in my local supermarket.
First some background. I am a huge fan of dairy milk chocolate, and I am also a huge fan of white chocolate, mainly milky bar. I was most excited when I saw Cadburys were making white buttons, but they were just a disappointment. I was hoping that this ice cream wouldnt be as disappointing. It would have to be better than white chocolate magnum to win the competition in my mind.
Cadbury's dream ice creams come in a multipack. The are packaged in a blue and purple (traditional Cadburys colours) cardboard box (which is recyclable-a huge plus point in my opinion). They have a tantalising picture of the ice cream on the front and cadburys dream written in swirly purple writing.
Inside are individually packaged ice creams which is great as you can take them out of the box and keep them in the freezer to save space and they still taste fresh. The ice creams wrapping is easy to take off without destroying the ice cream which is always a good thing. The stick is quite short however so it makes it difficult to hold. The chocolate is easy to break into and is nice and thick so you can really taste it. The ice cream inside is divine, it is really thick and creamy. The chocolate and the ice cream compliment each other entirely and taste really great. I was worried this wouldnt live up to magnum, and surprisingly they beat magnum hands down. The chocolate is thicker, tastes better and doesnt crumble so easily when eaten! 10/10.
I was a big fan of the dram chocolate which came out so on one sunny afternoon I was even more delighted to find an ice cream of this delicious chocolate!
I would describe this ice cream as being very similar to the white magnums, although the chocolate coasting the ice cream is so much nicer in this dream one but they are the similar shape and size.
The chocolate on the outside makes a nice crack when you bite into it and it tastes just as it does when it's a chocolate bar with the very creamy milky taste of the chocolate as it just melts in your mouth, as its white chocolate it also tastes that bit more sweet then milk chocolate which is why I love it. Combine with that the soft centre of vanilla ice cream and your in heaven as the two combine wonderfully. Dream ice creams now do a one with strawberry swirls in the centre to add a bit of different flavour and again the sweetness of this harmonises perfectly with the other two flavours.
You can buy these in most supermarkets which are in multipacks so I'd advise these as it's much more better for money or alternatively you can get one from your local ice cream man (although we may be waiting a while until his back!)
Mmmm. white chocolate coated vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce inside too! Heaven!
My review is of the new Strawberrys n Dream Ice cream, how beautiful!
Always loved white chocolate but always had to buy milkybar before Cadburys brought out Dream. Don't get me wrong I loved milkybar but they were quite expensive for the size you got!
Thank God for Dream!!!
First the chocolate, now ice creams, the original ice cream was like a white magnum but this new version has the strawberry swirls in the ice cream centre too.
The multipacks are really good value, especially in the summer at Sainsburys, there always seems to be a buy get one free or 50% extra free.
If you do buy them singularly expect to pay around £1.80 each or a full priced pack of three costs only around £2.30?? madness i know why not have three, one isn't enough of those gorgeous ice creams anyways!lol
You will probably know the Dream bar from Cadbury's which is basically the white chocolate version of Dairy Milk. It is one of the nicest bars I have tried and certainly up there with the nicest white chocolate bars I have ever tried. It is not just in bar form as you can see in the top left of the page. So here is my review of the Cadbury's Dream Stick and no this is nothing to do with Opium.
**Cadbury's Dream Stick**
This is a fairly new addition to the Cadbury's family and has steadliy increased it's sales throughout it's few years on sale. For anyone who is a fan of the White Magnum this is very similar although the taste of the white chocolate is a little stronger than the Magnum's White Chocolate. As you can see in the picture the shape is just the same as the Magnum and most other ice creams on sticks.
This is a really lovely tasting ice cream which has the distinctive white chocolate from Cadbury's and The centre is made up of thick creamy Ice Cream. On taste alone it is a deadheat with the White Magnum despite being very different in taste. One of the nicest tasting desserts I have tried.
If you are looking out for another flavour There's also a strawberry flavour Dream Ice cream which instead of the Vanilla Ice Cream has Strawberry ice cream with the same White chocolate coating that is on the standard one.
You can find these in Asda, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Morrisons and also Iceland. At the moment You can find some great deals on these Cadbury's dream sticks, a pack of four can range from about £1 and when not in sale you will be able to find them for also about £2. And you can buy some buy one get one free deals around.
These are great tasting ice creams and If you havent tried them and like white chocolate then pick up a box on your next trip to the supermarket. Great tasting ice creams at a good price from Cadbury's dream sticks. The only problem with these is the small stick which can tend to come off so you might need a bowl.
Mmmm this ice cream is truely heaven sent. It's delicious. Just like a magnum, but better. The gorgeous white dream chocolate on the outside (just the right amount of chocolate - not so thick you wanna throw up, and not so thin that you can't taste it. Just perfect) filled with scrummy, creamy vanilla ice cream. If you don't have a sweet tooth, don't bother - you'll find it sickly, if you do have a sweet tooth - this is for you! Also, the stick is actually long enough to hold, which is annoying if it isn't!! Quite expensive, but often in special deals in places like Iceland, and definetly worth trying!
