Disappointing to say the least
I have been a Connoisseur fan for many years but unfortunately have experienced a slow decline. The pinnacle of this has been my latest purchase at $10- a small tub of Davidson Plum and Cocoa. Unbelievably disappointing!! In fact it was horrible. What a shame, so disappointed
Needs more sauce. The rest us just ice cream.
The Caramel & Belgian Chocolate are described as having swirls of sauce but its few and far between. The sauce is the best bit and you would think for the price of it there'd be more sauce. The rest us just ice cream.
Love me some Vanilla
All the flavours are great! But the vanilla is addictive. I have never been this into ice cream before, now it's my go-to anytime day or night treat. It's so super soft and creamy, new definition of "melts in your mouth". Rich in vanilla flavour. It is generally $10 a tub which isn't super cheap but it also regularly goes on sale in the supermarkets, down to half price at times
Where did my favourite Connoisseur Green Tea Icecream go?
I remember travelling to Woolworths every Friday to do shopping and also to buy my favourite Icecream, Coinnoisseur Green Tea, even though Coles was right next to my house. ( Cause Coles didn’t have the green tea flavour.) And 2 years later, I came back to Australia only to find out my favourite Connoisseur Green Tea Icecream is no longer available. Why..? It’s so sad that the only Icecream I loved is gone. I honestly would do anything to have the icecream back. Please BRING IT BACK!
Purchased in March 2017 for $10.00.
What has changed??
I have just recently purchased a second packet of connoisseur ice cream on a stick that were not set properly as the first purchase was the same I complained to the store but it seems there has been a change in the product and it’s overly sweet this was the connoisseur-salted-caramel-4-pack
We use consider "Connoisseur" icecream the best on offer, especially "Cafe grande ". After a while the delicious coffee sauce disappear from the tub, almonds in the icecream become smaller, less and poor quality, and all it's left from "Connoisseur "- just a name .
Delicious NO MORE
Der Went into the bin
Too sweet and the creaminess was too fatty the sharpness of the raspberry non existent, Binned immediately. Minus score.
I am a chef and i used too make ice creams from custard base. This was literally nasty. It could be improved with reduction of sugar and more raspberry to help cut through the greasy cream left on the roof of the mouth.
Connoisseur it is not. I will try the others and will give feed back. The white chocolate was flecked as i could feel it but the balances are way out in this ice cream. A shame really as it is describing bed nicely but alas was not good enough.
Raspberry with white chocolate
I recently tried the "DERWENT VALLEY RASPBERRY WITH WHITE CHOCOLATE", and was extremely disappointed. The picture on the outside shows several lumps of whole raspberries in the spoonful, yet there was not a single one in the tub - just a (very!) few swirls! Now owned by Nestle? Surprise, surprise!
January 8th 2019 Update: Nestle have destroyed the reputation of Connioseur
The standard of the (still expensive!) tubs has become cheap and nasty in most cases! When Connoisseur was still owned by Peters, the ice cream was excellent. Unfortunately, it seems that Nestle couldn't care less about quality, but just want to make a quick buck at the expense of the loyal customers! :'(
I WAS a loyal customer until now
As usual they changed recipe to improve profits. Ice cream is now fluffy and airy, same as the ordinary Peters and others. Use to be great but now it’s just another ice cream competition for share of market, sorry to say that but I will find another brand, you lost a loyal customer. Hasta la vista.
Improved formula - finally shows green tea taste
They have obviously changed the formula behind the Connoisseur Ice Cream Matcha Green Tea. After being disappointed for a couple of years, the recent sale in Woolworths has attracted me to try it once more. I was totally positively surprised. I ended up buying a few more.
The matcha icecreams should have been named Japanese Matcha Coloured Icecreams, because there is not a hint of matcha flavour in them. So disappointed as their Himalayan Salted Chocolate Vanilla and Almond icecreams are the best. I feel let down. You pay for matcha, you should get matcha.
Are raspberries extinct??
I LOVE white chocolate and raspberry ice creams, so I thought I would try Connoisseur's take on it. It was pretty disappointing, there might be one swirl of raspberry in the whole 1 litre tub and the white chocolate is in such little flakes it gives a bad texture. It's too sweet for me, I wouldn't buy it again or recommend to be honest.
I'm a huge fan of choc honey nougat - have had trouble getting it since the new flavours emerged. Excited when I recently saw it back on shelves. Bought the 1st tub and it tasted like it had been thawed and refrozen - gave the benefit of doubt and bought 3 tubs on special at a different store. All taste the same - the peices are soft and the ice cream is icy. Not pleasant. Will now not eat any of the four barley touched tubs in the freezer. What's changed? Very expensive ice cream now a waste of money. Disappointed.
Is it even matcha green tea icecream??
Just tried the Connoisseur Matcha Greentea Ice cream. It was quite disappointing as I couldn't really taste the matcha flavour in it. Was expecting some bittersweet that should be apparent in the matcha ice-cream however could only taste the chocolate coating. Would recommend them to intensify the matcha flavour as well as making the chocolate coating matcha flavour as well.
