Almond Dream – Praline Crunch Review.
Let me give you a little background information. I love ice cream. When I was younger I worked at Thorntons – the extremely popular Chocolate Shop. My favourite time of the year was Spring – just after Easter the ice cream would come in. I would have ice cream everyday (& I used to wonder why I was so over weight… Maybe this was a key factor…) Ice cream is my sweet tooth guilty pleasure. My favourite ice cream at Thorntons was Brazil Nut Crunch. It was a Maple ice cream with Brazil Nut Chips. Mouth watering!
Since turning Vegan I have been more than happy with Swedish Glace Vanilla Ice Cream. I was never a fan of Vanilla. But Swedish Glace is so tasty & not artificial at all. It made it okay to be Vegan because it was so yummy! However sometimes you need a new exciting flavour.
So I tried Almond Dream. OH MY FUDGE WAS THIS AMAZING! Not only did all my memories from Thorntons Brazil Nut Crunch come flooding back to me – but it smashed them out of the park. It was a million times better, sweeter, nuttier, yummier & the best bit cruelty free of course. I had it with Fresh Fruit & Chocolate as a ‘I want a healthier dessert but can’t be bothered to make anything fancy kind of thing…’ You know what I mean right? It’s sweet but not grossly sweet or rich. It’s very nutty. Which I love because I love anything nutty. The Praline is consistently spread & fine throughout the ice cream. Overall it’s a winner. Even Bunnies like the leftovers! If you haven’t tried it yet & you like ice cream & love good cruelty free products. WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING!? Try it for crying out loud.
This ice cream isn’t cheap. I bought it from Waitrose for £4.99 – saying that I don’t think it’s expensive for a Luxury Ice Cream. It’s in line with the likes of Ben & Jerrys. In my opinion. It’s worth the money.
I’ll be going back to Waitrose to pick up more Praline Crunch & I’m looking forward to getting my mitts on Salted Caramel & Mint Chocolate too! However for now I give this product a solid 10 out of 10.
