Lotus Biscoff Ice Cream Sticks (Waitrose) By @SpectreUK

This is a bit of a coincidence. Maybe even a Baader–Meinhof effect. You see I was sitting next to the kitchen table earlier in the week doing my knee exercises that I have to do three times a day during the recovery from my operation, and noticed a packet of Lotus Biscuits on the side. I said to Cinabar that I hadn't eaten Lotus biscuits for such a long time that I couldn't even remember if I liked them or not. I'm sure I did though. She reminded me that I don't like cinnamon, which ended in a discussion that I just don't like cinnamon muddying a good apple pie. And then, of course, I had to have some Lotus biscuits…

Anyway, Cinabar then found these Lotus Biscoff Ice Cream Sticks, and I as I like the biscuits so much, I decided to try one after my dinner. You see the Baader–Meinhof effect, otherwise known as the Frequency Illusion, where you don't hear about something for ages and ages, and then like buses, it suddenly turns up twice…

On opening the box of three Lotus Biscoff Ice Cream Sticks I instantly wanted to dislike them. The only reason for this was that before I could unwrap one I dropped it on my foot. Well one of my toes to be precise. You wouldn't believe how heavy one of these things are dropped from chest height. And boy was it heavy. It dropped like a dart and I was hopping around swearing for quite some time.

As you can see from the photograph Lotus Biscoff Ice Cream Sticks don't look all that appetising, been as though they look a little like someone stuck a stick where the sun doesn't shine. However, on taste this caramelised Lotus crumbled biscuit covered, Belgian milk chocolate coated dairy ice cream stick is unbelievably good. The chocolate coating cracked and melted in my mouth, whilst the spiced Lotus biscuit pieces gave this creamy delight a decent crunch. Mmm… perfect for soothing my tastebuds after a spicy Madras TV dinner.
