The Licktators - Marshmallow Ice Cream (Ocado) [By @Cinabar]

Well the weather is (sort of) warming up and there are new ice creams on the shelves. This year too there seems to be some from new brands which is always exciting. This obviously meant I’m taste testing them. This one caught my eye as the flavour seemed rather interesting; Marshmallow and the brand looked quite funky. The packaging of the tub is quite intense, and the brand stands out very nicely. I wasn’t sure what to expect with marshmallow flavour but that is half the fun.
First thing I spotted is that the ice cream is pale pink and contains a good portion of mini marshmallows mixed inside. I served some into bowls, it was fairly easy to scoop which is always a bonus, and gave it a try. My first taste was a bit disappointing to be honest. The taste is sweet, and toffee like. Burnt toffee even, or cinder toffee, but not marshmallow to me. It was nice, and pleasant and I enjoyed the bowl, but the flavour didn’t match the packet. The penny dropped after a while, it was supposed to be toasted marshmallows and that is what that burnt flavour was all about, but the tub didn’t mention that. I was just expecting a pure delicate marshmallow flavour, something that would be nice to scoop on a bowl of strawberries, but this would be all wrong for that. On a positive note there were plenty of mini marshmallows mixed in and these were a lovely addition to the texture. Soft and slightly chewy.
So all in all I wouldn’t buy this flavour again. It isn’t bad by any means but it isn’t quite what I was expecting. Having said that they also make a Cinnamon Doughnut variety that I have my eye on to try next. I think that might be more up my street.

I was disappointed with this too :( I thought it'd taste of actual marshmallows.
