Some New Products That I Recently Bought From Iceland

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today I would talk to you about some of the new things that I got from Iceland. 

I decided to order a Iceland delivery order due to ordering in the past with them for when I have needed things in the past for my university at home lunches. Iceland are amazing for home deliveries due to having delivery slots in the same week as ordering, which for someone who is, disabled and a student this is an absolute must. Iceland are always amazing when delivering my items! 

Butterkist Toffee and Popcorn Flavoured Ice Cream 

Oh my god, Butterkist has always been my favourite product to take to the cinema and now that I can have it in an ice cream form, I can enjoy it at home whenever I want a movie night! 

The texture of this product is amazing. Not only do you have smooth ice cream, but you have crunchy bits of honeycomb and sugar and then waves of flowing toffee sauce. All of these blended together create the greatest of mouth feels! 

The flavour of this product is phenomenal and has many dimensions to it. To start off with the popcorn flavoured ice cream hits your tongue like the main battle of a superhero movie. After this, the toffee flavour blended together with the popcorn flavour on my mouth, just like how a sidekick blends together with the protagonist of a movie to create the greatest team alive. Finally the sugar and honeycomb flavours blast on the mouth like a rocket going into space just to create the best ending to a great flavour adventure ever. If you love anything sweet or the original Toffee Butterkist then I urge you to try this.

Fruit Salad Ice Lollies 

Who remembers unwrapping the wrapper of a Fruit Salad sweet knowing that the contents of it would bring you utter joy? These sweets were another part of my childhood. To be honest with you readers, most of items in this post remind me of my childhood and I think that's why I bought them. During this whacky new world that we are slowly coming to know, nostalgia is very much needed. 

These reminded me of Twister ice lollies. I love anything Pineapple so I was excited to delve into them. The mixture of Pineapple and Raspberry created a delicious sweet and sour contrast. The creaminess not only added a bit of texture but added a richness to the product which I adored as it cut back some of the sharpness of the fruit, which if left in its natural form, may be a bit too much for some. These to me tasted like the epitome of Summer.

Parma Violet Ice Lollies 

I remember always getting these at Halloween or when it came to a fellow schoolmates birthday when I was younger. 

I adored these. The lollies had a great texture to them which reminded me of a solid slushy. The taste of these reminded me instantly of Parma Violets. The best way to describe the taste of this product, is crushed up Parma Violet sweets steeped in water and frozen. I think that these would be great for a summer picnic in the garden or with a refreshing drink on the side. I should say though that if you're not the biggest fan of Violet then I don't think that you will enjoyy these that much.

Space Invaders Potato Snacks 

Who doesn't love Space Invaders? Those surprisingly sour crisps were the epitome of my childhood! I saw these and I knew that I had to have them! 

'Potato shapes from rehydrated potato with pickled onion flavour, pre-fried in sunflower oil.' - Iceland Foods. 

When these amazing aliens were ready, I left them to cool before I tried them. These beauties were crunchy whilst the inside were as fluffy as your favourite blanket. I love the texture of potato shapes in general as they bring the best of both worlds to the plate. 

Sadly, I was expecting the Pickled Onion flavour to come out strongly when after cooking these aliens, the Pickled Onion note of them had been muted quite a bit by the heat of the oven. To me they tasted more of Cheese than Pickled Onion to me which was quite bizarre. I am tempted to get the BBQ Neef ones to see if the same happens. Even though the Pickled Onion isn't completely there, it will definitely not stop me from devouring the rest of the bag!
