NestlÚ After Eight Dessert
Advantages: Tastes wonderful, Looks Fantastic and not expensive to buy!!
Disadvantages: If you are not a great ice cream lover, this could convert you BE WARNED!
After getting up this morning and noticing yet another empty After Eight Dessert box in the bin, I thought I would look to see what the great attraction is as this is the 2nd box this week!. I looked in the freezer and my son had replaced this with a new one, so now was my chance to find out ( against my good nature I decided to have some of this for my breakfast this morning!.... thank goodness I've had my fill of Special K lately anyway!) not much of an ice cream lover this would be interesting.
This dessert comes in a sturdy cardboard box, looking rather like a huge box of After Eight Mints, but with a picture of some ice cream on the front. Being quite a whopper weighing in at 1000ml it is a lot bigger that a lot of the other ice cream desserts in the shops. Just for a change the large box (measuring just over 10 inches long by 4 and a half inches wide by just under 3 inches )is not misleading and the dessert fits inside the box very snuggly instead of opening a box with the tiniest dessert sitting in the middle ( I've been caught out quite a few times before when I have had guests over having to rush out and buy another one!!) so that's a good start.
Now the ice cream is wrapped in a white paper sleeve sitting on a dark plastic tray, I tear the end off and pull back the paper to reveal a dessert that looks as good as it's picture on the box as well, another good thing ( the stars are starting to mount up now!).
I was completely surprised on how good this looks, very impressive if serving at the table as it looks proper posh!.
With the sides having chocolate ice cream swirled edges, the middle has layers of white ice cream with crispy chocolate layers inbetween, finishing of with dark chocolate zig zagged across the top with flakes of the chocolate scattered across the top yummy!.
As if that isn't good enough it has the delicate taste of the After Eight Mint flavour, not so overpowering but enough to get your taste buds going. Apart from the fancy sides and top you could mistake it for a "Viennetta" to look at but by no means is it anything like it to taste, this is so much nicer!.
Now I can see why these are flying out of my house at the moment as the ice cream is lovely and creamy, with a lovely chocolatey ice cream as well there is no false or artificial taste to this at all. A lovely dessert to serve to your guests after a good meal as this would look so nice sitting on a glass plate at the table ( there certainly wouldn't be any left I'm sure!).
Each 100ml serving contains;
In weightwatchers points this is 4, so as a one off not to back as it is worth the treat. Unfortunely it does say that it may contain traces of peanuts and nuts which is a shame that some people will not get the chance to taste this lovely dessert. Suitable for vegetarians. It does also say on the box that " This product may stain " I've never seen that on a dessert box before strange!
At the moment Tesco are selling this on special offer for ú2.00 instead of ú2.99, which even at the full asking price I think is an excellant buy. You certainly get your money's worth with this beauty!. So if you are having people over for dinner this weekend then I would rush out and buy one of these, I'm going too as my son and his girlfriend are over on Sunday the only problem is were to hide it from the others otherwise that will be demolished as well!!!
So a very well deserved 5 Dooyoo stars!
Summary: Go and treat yourself to a slice of After Eight !
