I had to wait till a Sunday trip to IKEA to give this a try and let you know what my opinion on it was, because you just cannot find it anywhere else. I have to say that this Almondy Daim Cake is pretty much on a par with most things Swedish (not that good)! Almondy who are the company that make this Daim cake are responsible for a few other cakes such as the Snickers tart but to be honest after trying this one I think I will be giving the rest a miss. This cake is loosely based on the Daim bar once known as the Dime bar and it does have the sweetness of a Daim bar but that is about it. The box this cake comes in looks a bit Marks and ...

This is a Swedish dessert. I know what your thinking, Swedish dessert, what the heck? Sweden is well known for herrings, reindeer sausage and loganberries, and if you believe the Ikea hype, hot dogs! Well the Almondy Daim cake may just change your opinion of Swedish cuisine if like me you had any doubts before now. Almondy isn't a description of the flavour it's the name of the company who make the tart, although the base of the cake is an almond biscuit base so is also the description. The recipe is over 100 years old but this has only been around for 20 years. The company also have a couple of cheesecakes, a true almondy tart and shockingly a ... Read the complete review

I'd been working hard on Friday night, and when i got home from work I decided all I wanted to do was go and watch a dvd and munch on loads of junk food. So off I go to Tesco and in the frozen section I found an Almondy tarta wiht Daim inside, I have always quite fancied the look of these but could not justify spending £3.00 on it, so as it was on special offer for £2.00, I thought what the heck. The tarta comes in a box with a picture of a slice of tarta on the front with some berries next to it (decoration goes along way), and says you can defrost in 10 minutes. On the back of the box there is a little storey about how the 2 men found the receipe, the ... Read the complete review

I heard about Almondy in a review on Dooyoo and whilst shopping in Tesco noticed and purchased this version of the frozen desert. Almondy is a frozen cake that comes in a variety of flavours including Snickers bar, raspberry cheesecake and lemon cheesecake. This particular flavour incorporates the confectionary item the Daim bar, or Dime bar as people in the UK might be more familiar with, into the ingredients. I associate Dime bars with being a teenager as that was the only time I ever ate them, buying them on the way to school and eating them at break time! They are essentially a thin slab of crunchy, brittle toffee wrapped in a layer of thin milk chocolate. ... Read the complete review

Although I have never bought any of this tart myself, I have frequently had it at friends' houses for dessert, and of course I have also done a little bit of research on it for the purposes of writing this review! I previously thought that this tart, or Daim cake as everyone I know calls it, was only available at Ikea, and of course it is very famous for its connection to the Swedish store, but recently I have found that it is also available at supermarkets such as Tesco. You can expect to pay between £2 and £3 for a whole tart, or you can pay less and just have a slice in the café at Ikea! This tart is inspired by the Daim bar, or as we in the UK ...
