Many lifetimes ago, back in the carefree days of the summer of 1996, myself and [livejournal.com profile] cartographer went a little sugar hyped and started reviewing ice-creams. (Abiding memory: Aero ice-creams looked like baby poo.) Seeing as Marfa has just come back from the shop with HB's NEW chocolate and marshmallow flavour, I feel an urge to channel my 18 year old self.

On the surface, great combination. Marshmallows dipped in chocolate, or better yet, melted marshmallows on toasted chocolate digestives are wonderful things. But it's not so great an ice-cream combination. The marshmallows are slimy and pop up randomly in your mouth. It's rare that I encounter something that makes me want to spit, but this was it. Slimy marshmallows in gritty not-very-chocolatey chocolate ice-cream swirled with gritty not-very-vanilla-ey vanilla ice-cream. They're trying for something and failing miserably.

Oh, I've just let it melt, properly. So it's runny. Tastes a bit better and it's a lot easier to identify where the marshmallows are, but that rather defeats the purpose of an ice-cream.

Score: 1/10 (because it's not bad when melted)
