Review of Valsoia Ice Cream Lollies

I have to confess to being a tad excited about the sudden availability of new vegan ice creams that are becoming readily available. My personal mission is of course to try as many as possible. So when I saw on Ocado that Valsoia did a chocolate coated vegan ice cream lollies I just had to try them.

I liked the pale blue colour of the packaging with the inviting picture of a partially eaten ice cream lolly to the right. As the ice cream lollies are from Italy an English label is placed over the original. They are labelled as being non dairy ice cream with cover. They are clearly labelled as being dairy free, gluten free, and 100% plant based. Onto the ingredients list soya is in bold as an allergen. There is no may contain warning.

On opening the box I was greeted by 3 large sized lollies in the same style packet as the packaging. On removing this I discovered a thick chocolate covered lolly. The initial aroma was a nice chocolately one. This aroma intensified slightly on my famous close up sniff test. On biting into the lolly I got a nice crisp crunch from from a nice thick chocolate coating. This was followed by the what I can only describe as a smooth ice cream centre. Onto the taste the chocolate layer was spot on it was strong but not too rich and overpowering. I certainly got my chocolate hit. This was followed by a neutral flavour from the ice cream. I was expecting a little vanilla element or something similar to this. This may be a tad unfair on reflection as vanilla is not listed on the ingredients list. That said I enjoyed this as it makes for a nice change from artificially flavoured ice creams.

So would I recommend these ice cream lollies? Yes I would. The thickness of the chocolate outside is spot. This combined with the smooth ice cream makes for a nice treat. So thank you Valsoia for producing a delicious ice cream lolly that I can enjoy.

  1. I’m obviously going to have to check out the frozen foods section of my grocery store so I can see what frozen treats I have available to me. You have me craving them now!

  2. I’ve never tried any vegan ice cream but I will check these out, they sound really good. And great review, I like how you include the ingredients x

  3. Neutral flavour ice cream, instead of the more ubiquitous vanilla…? I think that would have had me double checking the ingredients list too! Good review. #MMBC x

  4. These sound delightful! Honestly, I feel like the ice cream on something like this is really just a vehicle to deliver the delicious chocolate, so I wouldn’t mind that it’s not vanilla flavored either. This is a great vegan option!!


  5. Ohhhh I’m so excited by these! They sounds so yummy! I’ve only tried dairy free icecream in tubs so this sounds really good! I’ll have to see if I can get them in tescos. Did you know that Ben&Jerry’s are releasing three dairy free icecreams? They should be in stores by the end of September!

  6. These sound delicious, and definitely the sort of ice cream that i like! A good layer of chocolate around the ice cream is always a win!

  7. I haven’t seen these yet! I’m severely lactose intolerant so I understand your excitement about new vegan ice creams though. It’s awesome finding something that could become a new fave!

  8. Hi Chloe, it’s only when I see a post like this that I realise that vegans don’t have the food selection that eaters of all have. I take it for granted that when I want an ice cream I just choose anyone I fancy. These Valsoia ice cream lollies look the business and hopefully more companies will start making similar too.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
