Summertime favourite: Cornettos. Tesco’s have come up with the perfect vegan alternative to that with these toffee ice creams. Despite the military surplus, most basic looking packaging, underneath is that ever friendly cornetto. Priced at £1.50 for a 4-pack, it’s probably the one of the cheapest vegan ice creams on the market.
Thoughts on the first bite? It’s inhumanely fresh, soft and creamy. Its texture is 10/10 perfection with the ice cream being light and having a smooth velvet mouthfeel. I could honestly chain eat my way through the box.
See that wafer cone? It’s crunchy and it doesn’t shatter leaving a million tiny crumbs in your mouth (like Mr. Whippy, you horse’s ass of an ice cream). It’s got a good thickness to it so that you still get a decent amount of ice cream all the way through. The chocolate sprinkles on top also mix in well.
Flavour-wise it’s the got a strong toffee taste but it’s balanced well by the vanilla and a little bit of chocolate. I actually prefer it over the dairy counterparts. Of course, the crown that goes on every cornetto – the chocolate tip – comes included. With regards to comparing it to the real deal, it holds up well. Everything about it is equal if not better.
