With the recent hot weather I decided to treat my family to a box of my favourite ice creams. I have loved Feast ever since I can remember and they remind me of my childhood. I was pleased to find a box of 8 bite sized Feasts on offer for £1.50 in my local Tesco. The box announced that it contained 4 mint chocolate feasts and 4 chocolate feasts. As I love mint ice cream I could hardly wait to get home and indulge myself!
I was expecting each ice cream to be very small as most so called bite sized things tend to be. However I was pleased at the generous 60ml size of each ice cream. I opted to first try the mint version. On opening the outer wrapper the feast looked as I remembered from my childhood. The bits of biscuit clearly visible studded through the outer chocolate covering.
On taking a first bite I was immediately into the soft mint ice cream layer. The outer coating is quite crisp and not very thick. The bits of biscuit give the coating a great crispy texture that I happen to love! The mint ice cream was creamy and minty as you would hope. Underneath the mint ice cream is the reason feast is my all time favourite ice cream treat, a solid core of creamy milk chocolate! The core of chocolate was also just as I remembered and is like finding a bar of milk chocolate just when you thought your indulgent experience was over!
I am not fond of overly sweet things and am pleased to say that I don't find Feast too sweet, despite the fact that even this mini version contains a massive 10 grams of sugar! Whilst on the subject of nutrition I will also tell you that each 60ml feast contains 160 calories and 12.0 grams of fat. As far as calories go I don't think the calorific value is too bad considering that we all know this is a very naughty treat! I did find that the bite sized version was more than enough to satisfy my ice cream craving. My children seemed very happy to accept the smaller version too, in fact I think they were unaware this wasn't a full sized Feast!
I have also tried the chocolate variant, just so I can review the product property you understand! Although the mint version is my favourite, the chocolate one is also very pleasant. The only difference is the layer of ice cream is chocolate and not mint. Again the ice cream is soft and creamy and this time has a very chocolaty flavour.
So are there any negative aspects to this indulgence on a stick? I guess I should warn you to be careful when eating a feast, as the chocolate inner core has a nasty habit of separating itself from the stick, leaving you covered in chocolate! This happened to me recently as I was enjoying a secret indulgence in the garden and my white t-shirt now bears a faint reminder of my moment of pleasure!
Feast bite sized ice creams are on offer in Tesco until 14/6 at £1.50 for a box of 8. They usually sell for £1.78.I also see Asda has the same box at 2 for £3.00.
