El Tequito Vanilla flavour Ice Cream with Ginger Flavour Strawberry Topping (Lidl)
Do you remember the Salsa Baguette I wrote about the other day? Well this is manufactured by the same company but is a Mexican style ice cream.
I took this straight from the freezer and served immediately and to my pleasant surprise found that it was easy and soft to scoop. I find myself having to leave some ice creams out for a few minutes to soften, or use a hot spoon, but this variety was no problem at all.
It consists mainly of a vanilla ice cream and is topped by a red sauce, which is strawberry and ginger flavoured. The vanilla section is one of the creamiest and fluffy ice creams I’ve had; it just melts beautifully in the mouth. The topping adds sweet strawberry flavour and the ginger isn’t overpowering it just adds a gentle warmth. The combination is perfect, the ice cream is heavenly.
So to summarise:
El Tequito Baguette – Gorgeous
El Tequito Ice Cream – Fantastic
I will be searching the shelves at Lidl for other products from this range, I’m very impressed with what I have tried so far!
