Last year I reviewed the selection of chocolates that Wall's brought out to draw those in who weren't particularly up for an ice cream. Well, the trend has continues this year, with some new flavours coming out. One is the caramel Magnum chocolates, and the other is these Cornetto cones, now sporting double chocolate. The vanilla ones last year were pretty alright, so I figured these were worth a shot. After all, more chocolate is better, right?
These are basically the same deal as all the Wall's chocolates. Miniaturised versions of the ice creams, but with none of the ice cream. This chocolate does sport the classic Cornetto cone (albeit a smaller one), but on top there's a thick layer of chocolate, covered in white chocolate sprinkles. This is a pretty nice start, and while the chocolate may not be of the best quality, it's certainly tasty. What lies under the surface, however, is not as great. The packaging says it's a "soft chocolate centre", and they're right. It's soft, almost mousse-like, were it not of an overly syrupy texture. Chocolate is certainly the word to describe it, it's a sickly, almost overpowering taste, that is certainly a step back from the nice vanilla centre that the regular Cornetto chocolate sports. The cone surrounding it helps to balance the flavours a bit, but this was just a bit too much for me. It's not a bad little chocolate, and is certainly well presented, with some interesting elements. But the overall experience is not particularly great. If I were going to pick up some Cornetto chocolate, I'd stick with the original.
My rating: 3/5
