Well actually the Walls brand has released two new flavours with a slight twist but still inkeeping with their famous chocolate tip. The recent television adverts has the up and coming band Rixton performing a gig while everyone enjoys the new Cookies & Dream and Peanut Butter Love. But if you’re not in your teens and fresh faced boybands aren’t your thing you’re going to need something else to make you want to try these.
If you didn’t know about the new look of these Cornettos then you’ll be in for a surprise when you open the wrapper and find the the ice cream has been stuck underneath a chocolate disc. The Peanut Butter Love has a milk chocolate disc whereas the Cookies & Dream disc is a dark chocolate, almost Oreo like. The Peanut Butter Love disc is topped with a peanutty crisp which packs a nice crunch.
Apart from the crumble pieces of cookie being apparent within the ice cream, there’s no obvious taste of cookies but it does add a slight hint of chocolate to the famous smooth vanilla ice cream. There is a surprise chocolate curl as you get towards the cone which gives a little crunch and the aforementioned dream the swirl of chocolate sauce to bring a sugary delight. The chocolate swirl heads down through the ice cream filled cone, ginving you a hit cocoa all he way down.
The Peanut Butter Love is a very smooth tasting ice cream. The peanut butter makes the taste slightly salty but for those who are very much in love with the latest trend of salted caramel, this will be right up your street. Like the Cookies & Dream, there is a peanut butter swirl core that gives that sweetly salted flavour all the way down the cone. In comparison to the Cookies & Dream the cone is a lighter colour which is the final difference in flavour. But both are refreshing and well worth sitting in the sun and enjoying, even if it’s just for the chocolatey base that stops the ice cream from falling out of the bottom!
