New Cornetto Cheesecake Glory

A few weeks ago I reviewed the new Cornetto Chocolate Intense (see review here) which I rated very highly. I noticed quite a few half price offers on ice cream in Tesco yesterday so couldn't resist picking up another new flavour, Cornetto Cheesecake Glory. These were on offer for £1.49 for a box of 4 cones.

They're described as cheesecake flavour ice cream and strawberry flavour ice cream with a raspberry sauce and "muffin and chocolate" pieces on top. I'm not sure about the description (and the picture on the box) because my cones had zero chocolate pieces on top.

The ice cream itself has a very soft and fluffy consistency and comes complete with a peaked top, hence the need for a protective plastic dome (in second photo above). The flavour of the ice cream is sweet and creamy with a subtle tanginess that successfully recreates the cheesecake theme. The "muffin" pieces on top have a soft texture and biscuity flavour that is pleasant enough, but I think it would have worked better if these tasted more like the digestive biscuit base of a cheesecake. The raspberry sauce which appears through the centre of the Cornetto, was especially good as it adds a real kick of fruitiness and sweetness to the cone. Overall, I did enjoy the Cornetto Cheesecake Glory but it doesn't replace the new Chocolate Intense as my favourite.
