Cadburys Buttons Ice Cream Cones
Advantages: tastes lovely
Disadvantages: bad for you
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.
Summary: a lovely ice cream
