When I saw this new Carte D'Or flavor from Wall's I couldn't resist giving it a try. I love all things caramel flavored, but salted caramel can either be really delicious or really weird, depending on how it's done. Luckily Wall's got it right! I found this tub on special offer in Morrisons for £1.75. It's described as salted caramel flavor ice cream with caramel pieces and contains no artificial flavors. Opening the lid it smelled more like butterscotch than caramel to me. I scooped out a few portions into a bowl.
It tasted creamy and delicious, as I expected. I was waiting for the salted caramel flavor to become apparent, but it tasted more like butterscotch. It was very tasty and moreish, and the caramel pieces made it even more so because they added a lovely chewy, fudgy bite to the ice cream. After a while it hit me that it did actually have a slightly salty taste, which was difficult to detect initially. The flavor is very subtle and well done, but I maintain that it tastes more of butterscotch than salted caramel. It hardly matters though because it's delicious regardless.
Overall, this is a tasty new flavor from Carte D'Or, which I'm sure fans of toffee or caramel ice cream will enjoy. The flavor isn't too salty or off-putting so if you don't like salted caramel then chances are you'll still enjoy this. It's very addictive and I'll definitely be buying it again. I think it could be improved even more with some actual caramel swirled in. Check out Kev's Snack Reviews for reviews on products from the UK.
