      In a word- sickly.Having tried many brands of cone from many manufacturers over the years, this hits the bottom of the pile.What makes it so bad? The ice cream is extremely greasy/oily. Get some in between your finger tips and you'll see what I'm talking about.Compare it to any other major cone brand (e.g. Cornetto) and you'll see that being far more lean and as ice cream should be i.e. not greasy!I am returning them to where I bought them from.Horrible. Very.

      I'll have another please!

      I bought a pack of Cadbury's button cones at Tesco's this weekend. Summer is coming and I fancied a cornetto-like ice cream. I was not dissapointed. The ice cream itself is very creamy and light and even after being in the freezer for a few hours was not hard at all. The chocolate buttons which are mixed in with the ice cream are obviously cadbury's and are in just the right quantity; you aren't left trying to search for them in amongst the ice cream and neither are there too many to make it too sickly.
      The cone is firm, crunchy and didn't go soggy in the freezer at all - like many other cones have a tendancy to do.
      The packaging is very bright and easy to read and the wrappers are easy to get off the cones ( I have previously had cones where the wrapper gets stuck at the bottom and pulls of the bottom part of the cone). These are currently on offer at £2 for 6 and I think this is an incredibly reasonable price.
      I am looking forward to my next trip to Tesco so that I can buy some more!

      a lovely ice cream

      I was at my mother in laws yesterday for lunch and she pulled out some ice cream cones afterwards. I am never one to turn down an ice-cream and with a love of chocolate buttons and anything Cadburys; this seemed like a great ice cream for me.
      The ice creams are packaged to look just like a Corneto, wrapped in bright shiny purple paper with silver Cadburys logo emblazoned on the front.
      To unwrap, the paper on the sides needs to be removed before the lid and then you are left with a cone topped with vanilla ice cream and a few buttons dotted on the top for effect.

      I was hoping to find a few more chocolate buttons in my ice cream than the few that were on the surface. They were also in super mini size and nothing what I was used to getting from a packet. I did reason that small could be good as they would be very solid due to the temperature from the ice cream and eating large buttons would be more difficult than the smaller ones facing me.
      The ice cream itself was a bright white vanilla, and looked good against the darkness of the chocolate. Overall the appearance was very nice and would tempt anyone who likes a bit of chocolate with their ice cream.

      I am funny when it comes to eating ice cream. I like to nibble round the edges and then lick it to make it last longer.
      I was met with some nice creaminess from the ice cream. I was hoping it wasn't going to be too synthetic due to the bright whiteness in colour and thankfully it wasn't synthetic at all which was good.
      The little buttons were creamy and full of chocolate flavour which takes me right back to a packet of buttons.
      As I worked my way through the top layers of ice cream, I was met with plenty of small pieces of chocolate. This made me completely happy as every bite of ice cream had a good portion of chocolate mixed with it.
      My mother in law however wasn't quite so lucky with her chocolate pieces and she didn't appear to have as many as me. I certainly got lucky.

      Down to the cone area and this was lined with chocolate which many of them are. The biscuit area was nice and crunchy and not too thick. I can't stand it when you get a soggy cone where there ice cream has managed to gain some air through the packaging.
      There wasn't an awful lot of ice cream hiding down in the cone, but what was included in the whole ice cream was plenty so I wasn't worried about this.

      I wasn't sure I really wanted to know what this ice cream was doing for me (or not as the case maybe), but I did take a look at the box.
      One ice cream cone will provide you with 185 calories and 9.2 grams of fat. It was never going to be good for you was it!

      Overall I was very pleased with my ice cream and would happily buy them when I saw them. A box of six cones will set you back around £2 which is a good price when you divide it down.
      Being the Cadburys make, it all tasted a bit more real than some other ice cream varieties I have eaten, so a thumbs up from me.

        Great for kids or someone with a very sweet tooth!

        On a recent trip to Tesco I saw Cadburys Buttons Ice Cream Cones and being that I like Cadbury buttons and I like ice cream I guessed i would enjoy these and I knew that my grandkids certainly would.

        After trying one they were well and truly left to the grandkids though, the ice cream was just too creamy and sickly sweet for my liking and the buttons were tiny and of course solid hard due to coming out the freezer and they were hard to bite down on due to being so small.

        Full sized buttons would have improved this cone but still I see it as one for the kids really.

        The only thing I did like about these was the Cornetto type biscuity wafer cone and the chunk of Cadbury chocolate in the bottom of it but even at only £2 for six cones this was not enough to see me buy them again.

        The grandkids did enjoy them but then kids will eat pretty much anything that is sweet and not good for them wont they!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great ice cream

        We bought these from our local Tescos the other day after spotting them in the freezer section. The box had a large yellow band around it which caught my eye stating that they were £2 for a box of 6. The packaging is the notorious Cadbury purple colour with a large 'buttons' logo joined with a picture of the product and a cartoon of a button made to look like a sun. Each ice cream is individually wrapped in paper and is 100ml.

        The ice creams look very appetising. They are similar to a cornetto in the fact that they consist of a wafer cone filled with ice cream. The top of the ice cream keeps its shape well and does not melt down the side of the cone therefore meaning that they are fantastic for children as they do not make a mess! The ice cream is a bright white colour and there are a number of tiny buttons on the top of the ice cream which are also spread throughout the ice cream.

        The ice cream is quite hard and you need to bite into it in order to get a good mouthful. The ice cream is very creamy and would rival that from an ice cream van! It does not get ice on it whilst being in the freezer which means it retains its flavour well. The buttons are made of the usual Cadburys chocolate. Being in the freezer does make them quite hard, slightly impairing the flavour and making them less creamy and rich than usual Cadburys chocolate. The wafer is thick and is of good quality, it does not go soggy in the freezer and has quite a strong flavour rather than similar cones which often don't have any taste. Each cone contains 185 calories and 9.2g of fat so similar to any ice cream, they are not particularly good for your waistline!

        The whole family enjoyed these cones and they were polished off quickly, the kids even asked for another one! They were of obvious good quality and tasted very nice, we will certainly be buying them again. I think they stand at fantastic value for money-£2 or 6 ice creams equals out at under 35p each which compared to one bought from the shop is great value! I would recommend these to anyone with a sweet tooth or little mouths to feed!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great product for summer.

          Cadbury's Buttons are another classic chocolate that has seen the switch to an ice cream. This has been very successful, with great flavour, texture and the usual high quality of Cadbury. Also, the price is great and there isn't really anything wrong with them.

          The packaging is very good, with easy to read text. It is also very easy to recognise with the usual Cadbury branding. It is very easy to open, and the products are always fresh. The packaging is very thin, so it can squash the ice creams if you accidentally leave it at the bottom of the freezer or shopping bag. However, the individual packagings are made out of metallic plastic, so it can be hard to grip if it is wet so it will fall onto the floor.

          The product's quality is very good, with the same amount of ice cream, chocolate and cone every time. There is always the same great taste, with the high quality ingredients used. Unlike other Cadbury ice creams, the promise is delivered, with lots of buttons included.

          When you open the packaging, a nice sweet smell comes into your nose, encouraging you to eat it. Then, when you do, you get a nice sweet tasting ice cream that is very soft with little pieces of crunchy chocolate in it. The textures work very well, just like the flavours. This all melts in your mouth. There is lots of ice cream, going all the way down the cone until you reach the nice thick, solid piece of Dairy Milk that stays in your mouth and is very satisfying.

          The price of the product is very good, with 6 for 2 pounds. In comparison, some other brands cost 1.49 for 3! In some instances, these taste better, making them a great choice.

          Overall, a great product that everyone will love. It mixes lovely Cadbury chocolate with great tasting ice cream to create the ultimate flavour and texture. It isn't very healthy, but is a great treat and it all comes at a great price, giving you no reason to miss out on a great product!

            Small snacks for kids.

            I am a huge fan of cadburys confectionary products, in my opinion they are the market leading brand. They give a magic touch to everythign they do, and I purchased this product hoping it would be no different.

            Cadburys dairy milk buttons cones come in multi packets from your local supermarket. I have never seen them on sale individually. The box is traditional Cadbury's colours, purple with the Cadburys and Dairy Milk logo on. I had high expectations for these ice creams as in my opinion the dairy milk logo is like a mark of quality. You know if nothing else is good the taste of the chocolate will be. The box is recyclable which in my opinion is a very good thing. The box is decorated a bit like a packet of buttons in quite a child like and appealing way, making the ice creams look fun.

            In the box comes six individually packed ice creams. The packaging makes them stay fresh, even if you were to put them in your freezer without the box to save space. You lift a round lid off the top and then peal the packaging down round the sides to eat the ice cream. It doesnt appear like there are many buttons on top of the ice cream, and they are very small, but they are generously located through the ice cream. The ice cream is fluffy and aerarted, but does not melt as soon as you touch it, which is always a plus with messy childrens fingers. The ice cream cone also tastes fresh and not stale, which is always a good thing.

            Overall these ice creams and very tasty, they are just not amazing. They are a great small snack and contain 175kcals per cone. I would personally only buy them when they are on special offer.

            Disadvantages

            Excellent value for money, good quality cones - shame about the absence of real buttons.

            Whilst shopping in Sainsbury's recently I bought a box of Cadbury's dairy milk chocolate button ice cream cones very reasonably priced at £2 for a box of 6.

            Inside the large purple outer box, each individual cone comes attractively wrapped in purple paper illustrated with smiley faced chocolate buttons.

            Upon removing the cardboard disc from the top of the cone, I was slightly disappointed to find just six, yes, six small brown chocolate drops of the size and shape you buy in bags in the supermarket for using in home baking. I had of course expected real full size Cadbury's chocolate buttons in preference to these miniature globules.

            The outer waffle cone was very fresh and crispy and maintained its shape and structure quite well; it didn't fall apart upon the first bite, like some cones I have had in the past, and the very bottom tip of the cone contained a small milk chocolate plug, which was delicious.

            The ice cream underneath the chocolate chip topping is markedly white in appearance and tastes a bit like "Mr Whippy" but is a lot less runny whilst still retaining that characteristic air-filled artificial texture. Throughout the ice cream was a generous smattering of tiny chocolate pieces which in my opinion lacked the trademark creamy characteristic of Cadbury's dairy milk chocolate. If anything these chocolate granules had the slightly waxy texture more associated with "long life" cake decorations rather than the smooth signature Cadbury taste .

            On balance I would recommend these cones as each one contains just 185kcal which isn't bad for a cool tasty sweet treat. My children loved the colourful wrapping, and enjoyed the taste of the ice cream, but like me were a little disappointed by the absence of real Cadbury's buttons.

            The pack of six represents excellent value for money given that you can't find many good quality branded ice cream products on the market for just 33p each.

              A yummy chocolate and ice cream cone from Cadbury's

              Whilst in Tesco the other day I fancied buying some ice cream; for several reasons eally, 1 - my husband left the freezer door slightly open when we went on holiday, losing all my supplies. 2 - The sun is shining. 3 - Toby is really into ice cream at the moment.

              Browsing the shelves I decided on some cone style ice creams as these suit Toby well, if it starts melting too fast he doesn't get too messy, he has tried lollies but doesn't like these, probably due to the strength of flavour and also due to getting very sticky and in a huge mess. I spotted various packs of 3 cones priced at around £1.50, and then I saw these Cadbury Buttons cones; 6 cones for £2.00. The packaging looks exactly the same as the picture above, The familar Cadbury's purple is very easy to spot.

              For review purposes I always have to try the product, after all Toby can't explain the flavours etc just yet!

              Each cone is wrapped in a familar paper which you have to tear to get inside, the top of the cone there is a card cirle disc which protects the ice cream.

              After removing the disc and wrapper, you are faced with a traditional cone wafer; a light brown covering, with a chocolate egde to the top, and a large helping of pure white ice cream on the top. on top of this is a generous sprinkling of small milk chocolate drops.

              As I eat the ice cream, the chocolate tastesjust how I expected, a familiar Cadbury's chocolate; creamy, slightly sweet and melts in your mouth. The ice cream is exceptionally creamy, it's a cross between mr whippy style and a soft scoop ice cream, whipped inside it contains small pieces of chocolate, which I was very pleased to find, as they weren't visible on the outside.

              The ice cream filled the cone almost all the way to the bottom, where they was a small teaspoon full size amount of chocolate. The cone held the ice cream and chocolate well and was crispy when I bit into it.

              I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed this dessert, I was satisfied by the end of it. The flavours complimented each other, it was creamy and delicious. I loved the chocolate mixed up with the ice cream and gave it a different texture. Toby seemed to thoroughly enjoy his too, especially as he polished off the whole lot and managed to get a fair amount around his mouth, nose and cheeks.

              Being a dessert you are going to find a fair amount of sugar and not healthy stuff inside, so eating one as a treat is good, but those of you who are liking the sound of this but have to watch what you eat, each cone which weighs 100g is 185kcal, contains 23.1g carbs and 9.2g fat.

              Contains Milk, Wheat, Soya, and may contain Nuts

                A nice treat, especially for kids.

                My mum recently bought these and they are in the freezer so i thought i would give one a try and i was pleasantly surprised that they had quite a lot of chocolate in them.

                I think they cost £2 for 6 cones in a multipack box, which i think is great value because that is roughly 33p each and you can't even get chocolate bars for that price at the moment.

                I love cadbury's chocolate because it is so creamy and nice although i do think i eat it a little too much....

                I was expecting there to be small buttons and not much chocolate and from first appearance of opening the cornetto like wrapper, there is around 4/5 tiny chocolate buttons which gave me disappointing first impressions but then after you start licking and eating the top bit of ice cream you discover extra tiny cadbury's buttons embedded in it.

                This is great and you feel more satisfied when you start hitting the tasty chocolate rim of the biscuit wafer of the cone. The vanialla ice cream is ok but nothing to shout about and the chocolate chunk at the bottom is the best part.

                Overall, it is a great product but i feel the appearance could be improved but it is also great value for £2 for 6. I wouldn't say they are my favourite ice cream but they are a tasty treat after dinner.

                Disadvantages

                Rather nice but nothing to rave about

                I bought these as a treat for my children as they are currently on offer for 6 for £2 in Morrisons which I thought sounded a good deal.

                The standard cardboard box packaging is clearly Cadburys buttons branding in colour.

                The icecream as a whole is very "cornetto" like in that the outside cone is made of the same biscuity wafter type stuff and it's got lots of icecream inside with a yummy chocolate rim.

                At first it was slightly disappointing as mine (and others) had only a couple of tiny little buttons on the top and I thought "what a swizz!" if that's all it is plus vanilla icecream. As buttons themselves they are miniatures of the original sized ones just rather on the small size - but I realise that you couldn't fit many of the bigger ones on an icecream cone of that size!

                Having said that as you got down into the icecream it did turn out to have lots of tiny fragments of chocolate throught out the rest of the icecream with the standard solid chunk of chocolate at the bottom - maybe to stop the icecream melting the wafery outside too quickly? So it wasn't quite so bad after all and turned out to be a nice icecream overall but nothing outstanding.
