I love ice cream and for me the one that really reminds me of my childhood is Walls vanilla. I realised I hadn't had any for ages because I keep forking out for Ben & Jerry's. They are gorgeous but I thought I could make my own special ice cream by using the lovely Walls vanilla as a base and add in lots of toppings or sprinkles, and make my own creation and save money at the same time. I found a big 1.8l tub of the lighter Walls Vanilla in Tesco for 2 pounds, and I didn't even notice it was a low fat version. I was a bit worried it would not taste as yummy as normal Walls but it is delish!
This is 33% less fat than the regular walls but it tastes just as creamy. The texture is lovely and smooth so it scoops up perfectly straight from the freezer. The soft scoop means it is dead easy to mix in any extra naughty bits like cookie dough or choc chips and you can have a fancy looking ice cream ready in no time. But on it's own it has a lovely vanilla taste, that is no too rich or sickly so it is perfect for all the family. You will never know you are eating a fat reduced ice cream, as it totally looks and tastes the business. I know if you are on a diet you shouldn't go anywhere near ice cream as this might have less fat in but it still isn't low fat. But we all need a treat sometimes and this is a great way to cool down.
I would definitely recommend this as it is great value and great tasting too.
I adore Vanilla Ice Cream and I can eat this by the bucket load. As soon as I open the lip I just want to dive straight in. Ilove it with raspberry or chocolate sauce or on its own. Either way it goes down very well.
Walls Vanilla Ice cream come in a blue container with pictures of the great tasting stuff over the container.
As soon as you take off the lid and see that fluffy white ice cream I just want to eat it all there and then.
Its so easy to scoop with it being so soft and as soon as you put it in your mouth it melts yummy!
Walls Ice Cream is sold in over 40 countries so it is very popular and there is great demand for it.
There are around 60 calories and 2.5g fat per 100 ml serving which is great so get stuck in
You can get your hands on it in your local supermarket down the frozen food aisle and will cost you around £2.00. What a bargain.
WALL,S SOFT SCOOP.
Im afraid im one of those people who rarely eat ice-cream, but on the odd occasion that i do, i like to have a nice soft vanilla tasting ice cream thats not too expensive, but also tastes good for the price.
Recently having always got a box of this ice-cream in just incase one of my grandchildren come to stay, i spotted this Wall,s Ice Cream, called Soft Scoop, in my local Sainsbury,s costing £1.60p for a plastic tub containing 2L thats 900grams.
The Packaging **********
It comes in a handy to reuse plastic container, and it is nice and bright and appealing to ones eye, showing the Wall,s in red, and soft scoop in blue, with a picture of a bowl of this ice-cream with what looks like a bit of strawberry sauce on it.
And some rolled up wafers the symbol above Wall,s being that of a heart.
The Taste **********
Yes it really is lovely not too overpowering on the vanilla but yet soft, smooth and creamy, just as an ice-cream should be.
You can always do what i like to do, serve this with some fresh fruit salad, or with a flake (naughty but nice, and i usually buy some wafers to add to it, and chocolate sauce, but on its own it tastes really good too.
Each 100ml serving thats 45g serving contains, calories 84, sugars 9.6g, fat 4.1g, saturates 2.2g, and salt 0.1g.
I found even when frozen this was so easy to scoop out of the tub, i usually wash out my tubs and re use them, they are very useful for storing a whole range of things, especially in the freezer as this tub, has a clip down lid that fits well onto the base of the container.
Wall,s like to think that they have done one of the best jobs in the world, in making ice-cream, they have been around for years (80 years in fact).
It is also great to serve ice-cream alongside one of your favourite puddings, i like ice-cream with apple pie...yummy.
I would definetely rate this ice-cream even though i dont eat it that often, but i think that they have got the combination just right.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews. xx.
Walls is one of the most popular ice-cream brands, manufactured by Unilever, that puts smiles on faces all year around. You know Walls when you see the swirly red heart logo and you know you're getting quality with their years of experience.
Because ice-cream can be quite high in cals/fat if you're a big fan of it, I was delighted to come across the 'Light' version. A 2ltr tub of this ice-cream costs £1.79 in Tesco which is 19p more than their regular version, it's strange that you have to pay more to get the 'healthier' version. As opposed to buying a box of, for example, 3 stick ice-creams at £2, this is good value for money as you can get many servings from the tub. You can find this in most supermarkets now but it'll be harder to come by than the original variety in smaller shops.
What's the difference between the 'light' and original? The 'light' ice-cream contains 33% less fat with only 60 calories and 2.5g fat per 100ml serving. The ice-cream itself actually looks more yellow in colour compared to the original which is whiter, but I think it actually has a creamier taste. It's soft to scoop so you don't need to leave it out of the freezer for ages waiting for it to be ready to serve. Although it's lower in fat there is no taste lost with this product - tt has a wonderfully smooth and creamy texture which melts in your mouth and has a rich, delicious vanilla flavour.
This is great to eat plain or you can buy some ice-cream cones and scoop some into one. I like this with grated chocolate, but you can also try adding chocolate chips, chocolate/fudge/strawberry sauce etc to liven it up a bit. It's also great for making milkshakes! Even if you're not too bothered by the lower-fat content, I would still give this a try because I personally prefer this to the originally as I find it creamier. Yum! :)
