Product Reviews, Restaurant Reviews and Recipes: All GLUTEN FREE!
Followers may have spotted that I have already tried and tasted this product, as it was one of the entries in the 2016 FreeFrom Food Awards, and one that I was caught loving during the blind tasting sessions. In the category “Desserts & Puddings” this product was awarded a Highly Commended and I think it should have won!
So these were found in a larger Tesco Extra store, in the freezer cabinets and packaged in the distinctive Purple “Free From” colours chosen by Tesco.
Sold in boxes of four ice-creams.
Contains LUPIN Protein, SOYA. but free from GLUTEN, WHEAT & MILK. States “May contain NUTS”
The individual cones are labelled boldly “GLUTEN and DAIRY FREE” which is quite reassuring when you open up the box.
So how does it taste? Well, the ice-cream is creamy and soft (after waiting a few minutes to eat it) with a very light Strawberry flavour, contrasted with white vanilla ice cream and like Wall’s Cornettos, there is a strawberry sauce running on the top and through the ice cream. The biscuit cone is crunchy although not terribly firm and there is layer of chocolate at the top and then further down the cone (at the bottom).
Also on my Blog (from Summer 2015) is a huge listing of GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, WHEAT FREE and EGG FREE Ice Cream Options… Click Here.
