Daim Ice Cream Sticks Review

No visit to the seaside would be complete without ice cream, and since I can't have regular cone ice creams due to gluten allergy I decided to make do with these new Daim ice cream sticks instead. I've had my eye on these ever since they first appeared in Morrisons, but with an RRP of £2.49 I found them a bit too pricey. However they were reduced to £1.49 so I couldn't say no!

There's 3 sticks per box, each one weighing 71g. They're described as "Caramel ice creams with milk chocolate coated caramel and almond pieces, covered in milk chocolate with almond-caramel pieces". So there's bits of Daim in both the ice cream and the chocolate coating!

By the time I opened the box the ice creams were very soft, so much so that in the above pic the ice cream was nearly ready to break in half!

Taking a bite, I was met with a nice soft ice cream with a satisfying caramel flavour. There were some Daim pieces mixed in, giving it a nice crunch, but not quite as many as I'd have liked. There were yet more Daim pieces in the chocolate coating, which was the bit that really stood out: the chocolate tasted smooth and creamy, with the Daim pieces bringing a moreish toffee crunchiness. These are definitely some very tasty ice creams!

Overall, these Daim ice creams are pretty yummy and if you can find them at a reduced price I'd highly recommend giving them a try. Just don't pay the full price of £2.49 (I believe they'll be £1.49 for a while at Morrisons, so try them while you can!)

8 out of 10.

    1. :( I think you can get some GF cones but who can be bothered when at the beach right?

    2. Give it a few years and GF options will be available at the seaside - Changes are happening even if slowly! xx

  2. You have to try Tesco's salted caramel ice cream sticks (not the standard ones, the double coated). They are by far the best ice cream sticks around (and I think I've tried most of them��).
