“ Brand: Wall's / Type: Ice Cream „
Not very often will I buy sweet things in to my home, I cant be trusted with them! Add to that I suffer with incredibly sensitive teeth due to lack of enamel on them so although my taste-buds simply love ice-cream my teeth really don't! However due to owning a Tesco clubcard I got some money off vouchers plus £3.50 off to spend instore as I wanted to so I took a wander down to a store with nothing in mind to buy and decided to treat myself to a couple of bits I wouldn't usually and I found a box of four of these, on offer (for a limited time only) at only 99p instead of closer to a couple of pounds so I bought them. The Packaging: The box is light and dark blue with a flip top style opening to it on the front or it the Walls symbol is show and we told that they are Cornetto '4' Classico and there is a picture shown of one of the Cornettos and we are told that per cornetto there are 190 calories in it then the bottom of the box in appearance is the same as the top (without the flip top style opening of course) then on the sides of the box other information listed includes ingredients and a full nutritional chart are given, the weight is stated which is 360ml for the 4 of them and contact details for the manufacturer are also stated. The cones are all individually wrapped in silver foil and on that we are told what they are and the lid is paper as is the inside of the cone wrapper. Nice enough packaging this is. The Cones: These are quite simply gorgeous! Cone in shape, the top is set white, vanilla and creamy and naturally sweet and yummy ice-cream and on that section there is a crunchy milk chocolate and a sprinkle of hazelnut and meringue pieces are on there. The wafer cone itself is textured, quite thick and light brown in colour, lined on the inside with milk chocolate rather thinly and packed full of ice-cream and then to the base of the cone there is a hard section of yummy milk chocolate. Everything about these is lovely and equally lovely quality. These are a nice size to handle and nibble on, lovely when the ice-cream melts a bit, the chocolate and hazelnuts add texture, the wafer of the cone doesn't go soggy and adds crunch and the whole lot even when you sit and relax and take your time to enjoy it you don't get covered in gunge and gunk, so they are not hard to eat! With only 190 calories for one cone and and 8g of saturated fat I think these are ideal for a little enjoyable treat by all ice-cream fans. These are readily available in all good supermarkets etc and in different flavours and sized packs too!
I know were in the middle of winter but when it's the summer...Man I enjoy a Cornetto!! And the classics are always the best. Cornetto is made by Walls and are increasingly popular with walls creating more flavours. It was first developed in Italy in 1959 but didn't become popular until the 70's in the UK. Cornetto is a luxury wafer cone, lined with a thin layer of chocolate and is pre filled with vanilla ice cream. On top of the yummy ice cream are little pieces of chocolate and nuts. The Cornetto is wrapped is a foiled like packaging with a little lid. On removing the lid the ice cream looks soooo scrumptious. After making your way through the ice cream which is filled the whole way down the cone you get to the end of the cone to find a large chunk of chocolate....So no more boring cone ends. I normally only have Cornetto's on holidays as a treat and they normally cost approx £1.20 but is rapidly rising. You can also buy boxes from you local supermarket to being the holiday to home. A box of 6 Cornetto's in a supermarket will generally set you back about £2.50, which is a huge difference!! An average Cornetto has 180 calories and 10g of fat. Which for how tasty they are I think it's not too bad as a treat. I would recommend these to anyone who likes ice cream.
I have to admit this is one of my favourite ice creams all time. I picked up a box of 6 from my local Sainsbury's store for about £1.10 on a special offer, which comes to around 18p each, which is not at all bad; as they are nearly a £1 just for one cone from the corner shops! This Classic Wall's Cornetto in comparison with other Cornettos is rather smaller in size, but has more quality itself. Its sprinkled with lovely chocolate bits on the top with some nuts which make it even more mouth-watering. The ice cream itself has no chocolate in it, just plain vanilla, which gives off the best taste you could possibly find for any ice cream. Its states on the box of the multi-pack that is has no artificial colours sweeteners, which means its all healthy for young or old! The wrapper of the cone is a light blue colour blended in with swirls of white. It looks very tasty even with the wrapper off. The thing i like best is the fact that once you have eaten one you always feel like having another; well that's greedy isn't it! :P It leaves me a with a refreshing, smooth feeling in my mouth afterwards, as the ice-cream it self is so delicately smooth. If you haven't tried out this ice-cream yet;or in a long time, it would definitely be the time to pop over to Sainsbury's and get the special multi-pack whilst stock lasts. Nothing would be good without them! :-)
Spica, an Italian ice-cream manufacturer first registered Cornetto in 1960, when they brought their ready-made ice-cream cones to the market. Unfortunately for them, they did not sell very well and in 1976, Unilever bought Cornetto from them, turning it into the well known, very popular brand we know today. I would be happy to sit down to any flavour of Cornetto, but mainly buy mint or strawberry. This week for a change I went for the original one with chocolate and nuts. With 5 in our family, I always buy the family pack, which contains 6 cones. The outer box is made of strong cardboard, which stop the cones getting crushed. It is decorated in mainly blue and white and has a close-up shot of a classic Cornetto on the front. Inside you find your Cornetto wrapped in a thick paper with an inner foil. The top of the cone is protected by a thin, cardboard disc. When you peel off the paper cover, you are faced with a very attractive dark golden wafer cone and white ice-cream with a chocolate and nut topping. The ice-cream is the bit I always head for first. It is vanilla in flavour and is smooth and creamy. The chocolate topping is thick, smooth and sweet and it combines perfectly with the delicate vanilla ice-cream. The cone on a Cornetto is amazing! It is sweet and really tasty and unlike most cones, it is really thick, crispy and crunchy. Inside the cone is a layer of milk chocolate, but the biggest surprise comes near the bottom of the cone. This is where the layer of chocolate turns into a solid piece of chocolate and it is really tasty and filling. This makes a Cornetto a great filling snack, or it serves just as well as a nice pudding after a main meal. *Nutritional Value Per Cone* Energy - 180 kcal Protein - 2.5g Carbohydrate - 20.0g of which sugars - 14.0g Fat - 10.0g of which saturates - 8.0g Fibre - 0.9g Sodium - 0.07g Salt - 0.18g This product contains wheat and mlik. It is free from artificial colours and flavours. Wall's CornettoClassico are available in Tesco in a six pack for £2.19. This is pretty good value as singly these usually cost around £1 each. Wall's do make some lovely ice-creams and I think Cornetto are one of the best. I would be happy to recommend them and award them 5 stars.
The wife picked up a box of these ones and 1 of the strawberry ones yesterday from Sainsburys. They cost £2 for a box of 6, but Sainsbury's is doing 2 for £2, which really is a buy one get one free. Think bogof sounds like a better bargain really. The box was quite large, and we took them out the box to put in the freezer while helping ourselves to one. The sunshine always makes you want an Ice Cream I think. These looked smaller than I last remember, and no doubt they have probably shrunk. They are wrapped in silver foil which is easy enough to unwrap. This is just an Ice cream cone which has a thin layer of Chocolate inside of it. it is hard Chocolate. The ice Cream is vanilla and the only variety to this is the Plain Chocolate on the top with the scattering of Nuts. The Nuts are chopped and small and there is plenty of them on top here. They don't fall off either. The Chocolate covering is enough and not too thick but good enough. It would have been good for more of this through the cone to break up the vanilla ice Cream, but it is a simple and tasty Ice Cream. A nice simple Ice Cream to enjoy on a hot day.
Whilst shopping in Tesco a few days ago, the boxes of Cornettos caught my eye, particularly as they were half price, so I decided to buy two. I haven't bought Cornetto's for years and as I'm a chocoholic I couldn't wait to get them home and taste the Classico variety that I'd just purchased. Firstly, the box is extremely eye catching and has the famous Cornetto logo situated in the top left hand corner. The box is blue with a band of yellow on the right hand side. What appeals most to me about the box is that there's a photograph of an unwrapped cornetto, which takes up nearly the whole box! I was somewhat surprised to learn that Cornettos are manufactured by Unilever UK who sell under the name of Walls. Whilst I realised Unilever UK were responsible for many products, I thought they mainly manufactured washing powders and fabric conditioners! I'm learning so much whilst carrying out reviews for dooyoo as I'm reading every word I can find on the packaging of the items that I discuss. Anyway, back to the ice creams - There are six ice creams contained within the box; each weighing 60g and the advertising on the front of the box states they are without artificial colours and flavours. On the rear of the box Walls advise that "each Cornetto brings you on a delicious journey: from the tantalising topping, through the smooth ice cream down to the crispy wafer cone". As for the most important bit ... the actual ice cream. The wrapping is easy to remove, as there's a small tag that you simply pull to unravel the packaging down the length of the cone and there's a circular piece of cardboard protecting the top of the ice cream. The great thing about these is that the entire packaging comes away without breaking off the bottom of the cone. As soon as the circular cardboard is removed you can see a gorgeous display of fairly evenly spread chopped nuts and pieces of chocolate lying on top of the gorgeous looking white vanilla ice cream. The cone surrounds about ¾ of the ice cream and there is a delicate layer of chocolate around the top edges and all through the inside of the wafer cone. The wafer cone is extremely crunchy which evidences to me that Tesco did not allow these ice creams to start to defrost before placing in their freezer. There's been no end of times that I've purchased ice creams that have the most disgusting soft and soggy cones as the shop has allowed them to start defrosting. The ice cream is extremely creamy, but a little boring as I expected chocolate to be running through it. I did not feel the ice cream was particularly special and expected more from this brand. I felt there was something missing as I can always recall Cornettos being somewhat luxurious. For anyone who is familiar with Cornetto, you will know that there's a mass of thick chocolate inside the base of the cone. However, the amount of chocolate was minimal and rather disappointing. I took some notes whilst eating my Cornetto in readiness for writing this review and then referred to the box. I was somewhat surprised to read that the ice cream allegedly has meringue pieces. I would never have thought this, as I most certainly could not taste them. Whilst Cornettos have been around for the past 30 years, I am not convinced that they are the same size as they used to be or is it that my mouth has got bigger??!! Now we all know that ice cream is no good for us, particularly when it's covered in chocolate, but I best tell you the nutritional information for each cone:- Energy 840 kJ 200 kcal Protein 2.5g Carbohydrates 23g of which sugars 15g Fat 11g Of which saturates 9g Fibre 1g Sodium 0.05g Salt 0.1g Whilst the nutritional content is not good for those trying to lose weight, you can care for the environment when you've eaten your gorgeous ice cream, as the packaging is recyclable. Obviously, these are unsuitable for people with nut allergies due to their nut content. Cornettos normally retail at £2.19 for a box of 6, but Tesco are selling them at £1.08 until 24 May 2010. Whilst these ice creams are extremely creamy, I would not pay full price for them, as I don't think they're indulgent as they used to be. Unfortunately, I can only give them 3 out of 5 dooyoo stars. I hope you found my review useful and I would thank you for reading.
"Just one Cornetto, give it to me, delicious ice-cream, of Italy." Come on, sing along, we all know the words! Cornetto is a very popular brand of ice cream cone made by Walls. It was first developed in Italy (I am shocked that is really is Italian) in 1959 but didn't become popular until the 1970's. The concept of a Cornetto is an ice cream which is pre-packaged frozen and ready to go in a cone. It is made up of what I would call a 'premium waffle cone,' i.e. it is hard and crunchy when you bite into it. The inside is coated in a thin layer of milk chocolate and it is filled with creamy vanilla ice cream. On top are little chocolate segments topped with chopped nuts and meringue pieces. (If you don't like meringue don't really as I totally despise the stuff but can't taste it at all). The best parts for me are the start when you peel back the lid (and lick!) and then when you get to the end as you are met with a large chunk of chocolate in the bottom of the cone! I like Cornetto's as an after dinner treat over other ice cream products as it isn't boring like plain ice cream but it isn't overly rich and sickening like some others like Magnums. Cornetto's are available in other flavours too if the classic doesn't float your boat such as strawberry, double chocolate and mint. Each Cornetto is 90ml and contains 195 calories and 12.3g of fat. It currently costs £2.10 for a 6 pack but they are on offer for £1 at Tesco's. **Interesting fact** Apparently Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and a yet to be released film are part of what's called the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy or Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy. Each film features a reference to Cornetto's with the colour of the Cornetto wrapper symbolising an aspect of the plot. (I assume strawberry refers to the blood and gore in Shaun of the Dead and classic blue refers to the police in Hot Fuzz).
Cornetto are the straightforward, cones simplely done yet pretty much the best you can get. the family packs come with 6 cornettos in a box and its enough for the whole family. The classico has to be one the best flavours they have made. With chocolate on top with vanilla ice cream its simple but yummy mixture will please most people, and there are even nuts on top. Each cone weighs 80g and contains a chocolate flavour coating of 13.5% along with hazelnut and meringue pieces equalling 2.5 which give a really nice crunchy texture to the cone topping. Each cone contains 180 calories which is 9% of an adult's daily guideline allowance, there is 14g of sugar per cone and 10g of fat but what do you expect when giving in to temptation. The cone is the perfect crunchiness and the best part is that when you get to the end and you find that the bottom f the cone is just full of chocolate. The nuts compliment the vanilla flavour and are really tasty when you get all three in one mouthfull. Defaintely a simple and brilliant treat for everyone to enjoy
Like most people I love ice cream cones and they don't come any better than 'Cornetto' cones made by Walls! They are lovely for a cooling snack or an after meal dessert, easy and straight from the freezer and with chocolate and vanilla ice cream and nuts on the tope with my Classico flavour you just can't go wrong, yum! My 6 Family Pack I picked up at the bargain prices of one pound from Morrisons recently and should be stored under -18% in your freezer at home :) Each cone weighs 80g and contains a chocolate flavour coating of 13.5% along with hazelnut and meringue pieces equalling 2.5 which give a really nice crunchy texture to the cone topping. There are no artificial flavours or colourings and each cone is 180 calories which is 9% of an adult's daily guideline allowance. Sugar is 14g per cone and fat is 10g which is pretty high but this is a luxury treat really... This recipe has been going for 30 years and I remember an ad featuring the famous Cornetto song that everybody used to sing, lol! The reasons I love these ice creams are the gorgeous crispy sugar wafer cone which melts in the mouth, the rich white ice cream which looks so good when you peel the blue paper lid back and then unravel the sliver and light blue wrapper of the golden coloured patterned cone. The taste is lovely! The chocolate is really crunchy because it's so cold, and its really cream milk chocolate - the ice cream is really light in colour and smoothly creamy and milky too. I love the little pieces of nut on the top, it is a really good contrast and they are full of flavour also. At the very bottom on the cone there is everyone's favourite bit - the lump of chocolate filling the cone's bottom tip! You can't beat these cones even though others have tried, they are brilliant and a bargain and worth five stars! :)
