Awaiting sightings: this summer's new ice creams
Posted: 19:10 Sat 15-02-2003.
Today's Grocer magazine has the low-down on this year's new frozen treats, with two hand-held Double Cream (1.10) and Milky Bar (50p) ices from Nestle (plus a Smarties with Soft Ice Cream tub for 90p), a Galaxy Cone from Mars/ Masterfoods (3.20 for pack of 4), and an orange-flavoured would-be Solero rival from Del Monte (80p RRP). Over in cornets, Nestle have responded to the Walls' "Cornetto Soft" machine (now available in new Yoghurt Forest Fruits flavour) with their own "Ice Creamery" dispenser. Nestle's fillings will apparently be available in 6 different flavours ("packed with delicious ripples and pieces") - and, best of all, will be squeezed from a device which looks like something out of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

Comment: I wish there were only two flavors of ice cream in the world. The two flavors would be chocolate and vanilla ice cream.

Comment: I Would like to see some of the old time flavors return to the market,such as lemon custard ice cream.

Comment: this is junk, all we need is two kinds

Comment: mm - tempted to agree with Melissa but how could we ever live without pistachio? - yum yum yum

Comment: Variety is the spice of life right folks? I agree with Ann about Lemon Custard....Baskin Robbins had the best! And what about that Coney Island by The Dreamery.Yummmmmmmm

Comment: Much as I hate to break up this discussion, I just tried the Del Monte Orange Fruit Ice made with Orange Juice, and for all its "70% Orange Juice (from concentrate)" and "15% Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice" claims, it doesn't taste that different to the old Lyons' "Orange Maid".

Comment: I'm able to get lemon custard usually during the summer at our Walmart super store. Pistachio and tin roof sundae are also my favorites. My grandfather, a chemist for Orange Crush prior to the depression, always said that you tell the quality of an icecream brand by their vanilla icecream.

Comment: Hey, anyone knows Ben & Jerry ice creams? They're the BEST
Posted: 03:25 Tue 22-04-2003 by "piggymom"
Comment: Ben and Jerry's is fun, but I, too, am a Dreamery CONEY ISLAND fan. That is some good stuff!
Posted: 15:15 Tue 22-04-2003 by "Issie - UK"
Comment: Nestle Double Cream - WOW - It's so creamy and the chocolate is so thick, a brilliant product for Choc O holics like me.

Comment: I had the new Ben and Jerry "Karamel Sutra" tonight. "A caramel core, surrounded by caramel and chocolate ice creams and fudge pieces."

Now how exactly do you spell that drooling noise that Homer Simpson does?

Comment: Is it just me, or is Nestle Double Cream chocolate (now a hand-held ice-cream of its own) almost indistinguishable from Yorkie?

Comment: You lot need to eat healthier food. Stay away from the sweet stuff.

Comment: Cows (in the Maritimes of Canada and a couple of other places) - Fab ice cream. Everything in England's overpriced and rubbish :(

Comment: Rosskilly's ice cream is the best, mmmmmm gorgeous. They make it in Cornwall from using their own herd of Jersey cows. 6788 6
