Best tasting brownie ice cream!
Not too sweet like Harry's. Not too much overpowering brownies like Haagen Dazs or Maggie Beer's. This is the blend of perfect creaminess of ice cream with the right amount of brownies in your mouth you'll hear angels sing in every spoonful. Only missing is a crunch of a nut. Perhaps roasted almonds or walnuts would be best.
Easily the worst ice cream that I've every had.
To put it simply, this new flavour is unpalatable. Everything from the container to the ice cream itself looked amazing. Until I tasted it. I can't even find words that can sufficiently describe how horrible it was. To say I was disappointed is putting it very lightly. I was almost reduced to tears. I had looked forward to this ice cream after an extremely gruelling and stressful week, and after eating this new flavour almost made me denounce ice cream. That's how horrid it was. It was nauseatingly sweet and tasted like bad cough syrup. The pine nuts somehow managed to make it taste even worse. Never again. Get yourselves some woolies homebrand ice cream guys and be happy.
Mouth full of chewy corn
The creaminess and flavour were enjoyable as I started to eat. Then I came across an 'interesting' ingredient - could this be corn kernels? Different. As the eating went on I found myself struggling against the accumulation of barely chewable corn, to the point I wanted to spit it all out into a napkin. Points for bravery, but not a winner at all.
No ice cream can still compare to this tub. It's smooth and creamy consistency is what gets me to buy it and stock them up in the fridge. I love the Chocolate Brownie and Raspberry with white choco. It is simply delicious and comforting from the first scoop off the tub until the last one.
What on earth?
I seldom buy commercially made ice cream but I thought golden syrup sounded fabulous...until I tried it. Why, oh why, would anyone take a perfectly good tub of ice cream and stuff it chock-full of what are essentially slightly softened un-popped corn kernels? It's like someones idea of a joke. "Hey guys, lets do THIS and see if they're stupid enough to actually buy it! Mwaahahaha" Everyone who tried it at my place, ate it by sucking off the ice cream and spitting out the 'pips'. Never again.
Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness
Over a bowl of ice cream I found out there is a hippopotamus in Heart of Darkness. Years back someone mentioned that book and I said something along the lines of 'How's that bit with the hippopotamus' and whoever I was talking to (I forget) said ' What hippopotamus? There's no hippopotamus in Heart of Darkness' That was around 2004. I have doubted my judgement since. But tonight I was talking to my boyfriend about it and how it must have been a lucid dream where I rewrote Heart of Darkness. He googled 'hippopotamus and heart of darkness' and it turns out I was right! The texture was a bit weird, like it had melted and been refrozen.
Bring back chocolate obsession
Really disappointed chocolate obsession has been deleted. None of the other flavors come close.
I tried the green tea flavor today. Not bad but no where near as good as some of the green tea ice creams I tried in Thailand. The other flavors seem over complicated and too heavy for my liking.
This was our favourite bought ice cream until we recently discovered it contains Palm Oil. Until they change the recipe, we won't be buying it again and we'll be telling all our friends (loudly, via social media) to stop buying it as well, which they will.
In this day and age companies need to take some responsibility for the sourcing of their ingredients. Cafe Grande, I will miss you!!
The best ice cream in the whole world!
Delicious delicious delicious!!! I think I would not buy it for kids as an every day treat just because I don't have much money yet :). But when it's on sale sometimes you can't pass by it. Ice cream to die for. My favourite is classic vanilla as all flavoured ice creams I ate as a child now I'm stuck with vanilla for so many years.
I love this ice cream. The only down side is that my favourite flavour (choc obsession) is no longer available at woolies and Coles. Other flavours are great too, I particularly recommend the butterscotch and gingerbread flavour with chai syrup.
A little bit heavy on the sugar and fat though.
Can't eat it everyday
I was never really big on Ice Cream...until now. The flavor that changed me is the Cafe Grande. It's simply amazing. The crunchy chocolate coated almonds, the coffee ice cream is so well balanced by the Grand Manier swirl. Yeah, it is on the pricey side, but I would say its worth it.
Tubs are small, but cost a lot.
The best of the supermarket tubs
I like all the flavours but I adore the Vanilla and the Cookies and Cream. I was very excited to come across the Strawberry flavour one day as my Woolworths doesn't seem to stock it. Oh it is just as heavenly as all the others and worth making a special trip for! Yes it is pricey but I feel that the quality ingredients and flavour justify the cost. It comes up on special regularly.
Everything. It is perfect.
Possibly the Best (Supermarket) Icecream in Australia!
For me Connoisseur Ice cream is in a class all on its own, and I have long enjoyed this iconic Australian brand. The Classic Vanilla is about as good as ice cream gets, the balance of rich creamy flavor and perfect mouth melt texture is heavenly. Also It has no added air, there is 10 to 20% air in the flavored ice creams (weigh them) BTW there can be up to 60% air in the nasty cheep Peters and Streets or homebrands that can barely be called ice cream.
My only fear is that now Nestle have the brand the marketing department will say that the manufacturing costs are too high and will find it necessary over time to reduce the quality or add air? lets hope not!
