With summer just recently gone, well on the way out, so passes the season when we all look forward to a nice ice old ice cream to help us all stay cool.
Manufacturers have realised that customers are willing to pay for decent ice cream, and so in recent years have upped the prices accordingly. These cornetto-style cones from Tesco offer a less costly alternative to premium brands, but how do they match up?
Well, I am happy to say that pretty well actually. Coming in different flavours that include vanilla, strawberry, peanut butter and mint chocolate, they are also considerably cheaper than their more expensive competitors and can often be found on offer during the summer months.
My favourite are the peanut butter ones, though they are not peanutty enough for me, but the strawberry and vanilla ones go down a treat with my wife and daughter.
Flavourwise - well, all the real flavour is on the top, so when that's gone you're left with a pretty standard ice cream. The cones are nice however, and not like dome cheaper brands where I have found the cones to be soft, even after being in the freezer, and sometimes almost stale tasting.
The chocolate and nut variety, as seen in the picture, are about the best of the bunch, but I am happy to say that there isn't one of these products that doesn't hit the spot - and trust me, either a young daughter, we have tried them all. This is mainly due to the nice, thick chocolate waiting for you hidden in the base of the cone!
The ice cream cones come in boxes of six, and each is approx 100ml in weight. My only complaint - they are eaten too soon. Maybe a slightly bigger size would be nice.
Certainly value for money and I would buy them again for definite.
