      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not too bad for a cheap treat

      Bought these today but they are now a pack if 8 for 60 p. Considering you get 8 choc ices from sainsburys own brand for one pound but you get a larger quantity weight wise I would prefer to go for them. You get around 457ml in the basics but 560 ml in the other one.

      Ok so the product classic.choc ice set up cardboard box in this case white with the usual basics writing with 8 individually wrapped ices in white paper. The ice cream is not unlike any other you find in choc ices not too sickly sweet but not creamy either. The chocolate on them I have to say disappointed me it had the cheap artificial taste cheap choc often does. This was the real reason it made me look at the weight and the ingredients. The ingredients make up is almost identical on both sainsburys do.

      If it was a case of keeping prices low for the difference in size/weight it wouldn't be that noticeable and they still are enjoyable just could be nicer.

      Bargain

      Choc-ices have to be one of my favourite iced snacks and i quite often find myself stopping in at Sainsburys to get a box of their basics choc-ices.

      The main attraction is the price being just £0.97 for 10 choc-ices. The packaging is what you would expect, very basic with the classic orange and white of Sainsburys as pictured above. Upon opening the box each choc-ice is individually wrapped in a very basic white paper wrapper making them easy to get into and eat without .

      The choc-ices themselves have a milk chocolate covering which is not to sickly and thick enough to give a good crack when you bite into it and also to compliment the ice-cream inside. The vanilla ice-cream inside is very tasty indeed and is as good as any other choc ices i have tried. Personally i find they could be a little bigger however at such a bargain price for a box of ten feel i can't complain to much about this.

      Probably not the best thing to eat on a regular basis as filled with sugar but great to have in the freezer for when you get a craving.
