I've been seeing a few tweets of late mentioning the new Connoisseur Gourmet Ice Cream on a stick range so when I spotted them in Coles with 20% off my curiosity got the better of me. My first reaction was to get one of each but then I reasoned with myself and tried to decide on just one flavour which was actually quite hard to choose as they all sounded wickedly good. In the end I decided on the Murray River Salted Caramel with Macadamia ($6, 4 pack Coles special) because I thought it's quite a classic flavour combination and macadamias are generally expensive to buy. Packaging and graphics very nice so kudos to the advertising company that did them. Once to take off all the packaging you're left with a product that looks very similar to a Magnum. Texture, flavour and creaminess of the ice cream all very enjoyable. Flavours work a treat together. The gooey caramel sauce wasn't that noticeable while biting through but you could sort of taste it. My preference is usually dark chocolate these days but this one was very nice. I'd happily have again but now interested to try the other flavours.
PROS: Was an enjoyable flavour combination and other interesting flavours available, Decadent treat
CONS: Decadent treats don't come cheap, High in sugar and fat
MUST TRY: Murray River Salted Caramel with Macadamia
VERDICT: Nice packaging makes these look like a luxury treat. Exotic flavours will provide a point of difference to the consumer.
