Tesco Orchard Review: Ice Cream - Ice Cream Roll

Whilst flicking through the various ice cream options on Tesco's website I came across Arctic roll or as Tesco call it "Ice Cream Roll".

With Home made Turkey Twizzlers planned for tea one night this had to be the perfect compliment to our school dinner themed evening.

The boys loved it.  The idea that they could have cake and ice cream and 'jam' all in one dish it's safe to say it was a hit and has been requested many nights since.

What Tesco say: Vanilla flavoured ice cream rippled and coated with raspberry sauce, wrapped in a light sponge.

In my opinion the ice cream itself was nice, nothing special but it tasted ok.  The sponge didn't really work, it was tough and didn't really have a lot of flavour.  The raspberry sauce provided the most taste to the product and tasted great.

Would I buy again?  It's only £1 for 250g (approx 4 servings) so is quite reasonable for the a treat for kids.  It's soft enough that you can cut a slice off and then return it to the freezer for next time.
Did it take me back to my childhood and evoke old memories?  sadly no. :(

Have you tried Tesco's ice cream?  Can you recommend a great Arctic Roll?
