Wall's Cornetto Enigma Cookie
Disadvantages: pricey, unhealthy
Classic Cornetto vanilla ice cream in the classic Cornetto cone, but with a twist of cookies and cream. It comes packaged in a brown and gold box with an easy perforated strip to allow you access to the goodies (I have seen different packaging in other locations so this may vary). This doesn't stand out from other products as many ice cream brands use similar colors, e.g Magnum, however as someone who looks for this particular brand this flavor stood out. If you see it you will notice it. There is a tunnel through the middle of the ice cream which is filled with sticky chocolate sauce and crunchy cookie balls, all of which is depicted on the front of the packaging. This is all combined together in a cone with the chocolate rim to make a near perfect ice cream treat.
The downside is when you look at the nutritional information which ma put a fair few off, hell I have to think it through twice before I have one and I'm not exactly a health freak! So here it is:
Calories - 180kcal (9% of your GDA)
Carbohydrates - 25g (unknown, sorry)
Sugars - 15g (17% of your GDA)
Fat - 8g (11 of your GDA)
Saturated fat- 7g (a whopping 35% of your GDA)
On the whole, when I have bought these, the cones have been crispy, but I have bought the occasional pack when they have been soggy and that detracts so much from the taste. On the plus side I have never had any complaints about the ice cream itself.
So the combination of a crispy cone, soft vanilla ice cream, sticky chocolate sauce and crunchy cookie balls make this a delicious snack although the calories and saturated fat need to be watched. The price needs to be watched too, with this coming in at an eye-watering £4.50 for a pack of 4 (although I do admittedly live in London). All in all, a good luxury (in terms of ice cream) purchase.
Summary: Good on the taste front, not so much on the health front.
