Carte D’Or Caramel Cinnamon Waffle Ice Cream (Sainsbury’s)


What is that outside, shining through the window? Oh yes, that would be sunshine! Summer is on its way, and the change in weather can mean only one thing – new ice creams in the shops. Carte D’Or seems to be on the ball with this cinnamon inspired dessert.
There is a brown coloured cinnamon ice cream, mixed with a white vanilla, topped with a toffee sauce and pieces of, well actually I’m not one hundred percent certain what the pieces are. From the name I want to say ‘waffle’ pieces but from the texture it is really more of a solid fudge.
I love cinnamon as a flavouring, it adds a lovely sweet and warming taste, which goes well with the creamy aspect of the ice cream. The toffee sauce is very rich, and works well with the spicy flavour from the cinnamon. A really good combination of flavours and a sweet summer treat.

Wow. That sounds gorgeous. Have you tried their Greek yogurt and honey variety? Carte D'or is such good icecream. They plain vanilla is pretty moreish too, as is their mango sorbet.
