Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Carte D'Or Ice Cream Desserts Confirmed sighting: Carte D'Or Ice Cream Desserts
Posted: 18:17 Tue 14-Nov-2006. Price: 1.50. Location: ASDA, Slough. Sub-flavours: Creme Brulee; Panna Cotta Amaretti; Tiramisu. Nutritional unusualness: Creme Brulee contains 19g carbohydrate per 100ml, sugar content not specified.
"Damien" reports: Just seen the new ones from Carte D'Or... they look good and taste even better! It's ice cream but they taste just like they're supposed to... Creme Brulee is perfect: crunchy caramel pieces and a burnt caramel sauce with gorgeous custardy ice cream... I asked in Tesco where I usually shop and they're coming in next week!!!!!

...An oddly enthusiatic sighting here from (what I can only assume is the same) "Damien" - the product's been subsequently spotted by both me and "Phillerena" (though I paid 2.99 for a 750ml tub in the Costcutter on the way to Kentish Town). I've also found pics of what I promise are the last of the unusual ice-creams I saw in Cyprus: Nestle's really-not-bad Sveltesse Batonnet Glace Framboise avec morceaux de framboise sucres, and the magnificently-titled Lipetsky Khladokombinat (from Russia) Merry Winnie - good to see they're still referring to the bear as "Winnie" even for "unofficial" food tie-ins, so as to avoid the possible confusion surrounding My Interactive Pooh.

Comment: Yes, oddly enthusiatic. These Carte Dor ice creams are really just an attmept to charge more for an 'upmarket' product. And they dont really deliver. The tiramisu one was quite nice but nowhere near as good as ben and jerrys.

Comment: Well, I love the Carte D'or Mascapone and Red Berries. It's totally delicious on top of tinned peaches, all melba-like and scrummy.

Comment: Love the mascapone one as well, and also the yoghurt and honey one. This one sounds appetisizing, can't wait to try it out!

Comment: I have been searching for Carte Dor coconut ice cream. Why have they stopped making it? This flavour was wonderful especially when Amaretto liquer is poured over it

Comment: Oh yes I loved coconut too! And walnut flavour.

Comment: I didn't know there was a Coconut Carte Dor, oh god i've missed out!

Comment: it's pretty tough that x-ray quiz isn't it? (in the absence of traditional x-ray features like skeletons...)

Comment: Pretty pointless more like

Comment: The x-ray quiz was quite good but I was stuck as there seemed to be two that looked like Kinder eggs and couldn't think of anything different that's the same shape.
Posted: 13:48 Thu 30-Nov-2006 by "charl" # permalink comment
Comment: yeah, i had to assume they were both kinder eggs, i thought you could see the toy container both times. my boss thought one was a creme egg. some of them were pretty tricky!

Comment: Yeah, I tried this but I wasn't impressed. It wasn't unpleasent to eat, but i thought the taste was quite weak and couldn't see or taste any caramelised bits in it at all. Ben and Jerry's all the way, I say.
