The sun is shining, the trees are in bloom, Spring is officially in the air.. And this can only mean one thing - Ice Cream! I realise most people eat tubs of the stuff throughout the year but nothing beats a 99 straight off the Van which melts all down the cone and your hand in unison. I'll be dreaming of this until I hear those classic chimes come the hot Summer sun but in the mean time, scoffing this Tesco Finest tub may be the way forward..
Sicilian Lemon Curd Ice Cream! Could there be any better flavour? I don't think so! The 500ml tub which is made in Devon with local double cream, cost £3 - There was no hesitation when chucking it straight in my trolley!
Full cream milk and double cream from Devon cows makes our real dairy ice cream wonderfully indulgent. It's lovingly made in small batches in south Devon, using British free range eggs, then rippled throughout with beautifully smooth Sicilian lemon curd for a refreshing zesty flavour.
We've ventured into the actual tub for todays action packed, lemon puddle shot. As you can see, there wasn't really a ripple but more, sporadically placed oozing blobs of curd. Taste wise, it was all you could want in a lemon dessert with the aforementioned having a lovely citrus-y tang whilst being on the right side of sharp. The thick yet smooth, crystal free ice cream itself was equally as delightful thanks to the super creamy and indulgent use of double cream which certainly reflected in the overall quality. Once again, the lemon flavour was very much apparent but obviously, more subtle than the curd although the 2 complimented one another perfectly - There's nothing not to love about double lemon!
Overall and without a shadow of a doubt, this Sicilian Lemon Curd Ice Cream is up there with one of the best I have ever had.. And not just because I am a Lemon fiend! The quality is second to none and there is no question that it is a Finest product. If zesty things float your boat, you need this in your life! Top marks from me - A 5 out of 5.
