Fat whores rejoice!

Viennetta has returned to the U.S.! I always wanted to try one, the commercials made them look so elegant!

They were pretty good, but expensive. Seeing all the ads back then they looked massive, but were tiny when you took them out of the box. Also, I wonder how they will taste since the originals were made by Breyers and these are Good Humor.

When I was still buying them years ago they were one of the cheapest ice creams around. And it appears they still are.

by Anonymousreply 301/05/2021

they look so chic, it’s the dialing a phone with pencil of ice cream.

by Anonymousreply 401/05/2021

I hope it is available in the US South, since I saw it on UK TV I’ve been dying to try it.

I remember the commercials but don’t know a single soul who actually ate it.

Drag Cream name.

That new package is almost tacky enough to be Mexican candy. And if you think I'm being racist, just take a look at this:

i had the original back in the 90's. its like layers of ice cream with the chocolate shell between them. and it was small

I can tell you from experience going back 36 years that the last two slices taste as good as the first.

Now they just need to bring back Hälsa shampoo.

It looks like CRAP. Carvel ice cream cakes are FAR better.

by Anonymousreply 1701/05/2021

Viennetta style ice cream is good when made with real ice cream and good cookie/biisquit bits. The mass market one in France isn't awful but could be much better. Pity an Italian company doesn't market a sublime one.

by Anonymousreply 1801/05/2021

Will it taste the same?

by Anonymousreply 1901/05/2021

My eleven year old gayling self is very, very happy. But now? Fuck me. I'm on keto to fit into a Speedo by June!

Seriously, R19. So much of the time, formulas change, and it's almost never for the better.

Wow, you’re old. I’ve never met anyone who’s had it. I thought it was a myth.

Now bring back Frusen Glädje.

by Anonymousreply 2301/05/2021

R20 is right, childhood favorites never taste the same. I wonder if it’s because our palates mature or because of shoddy ingredients? Still tempted to give it a try.

by Anonymousreply 2401/05/2021

[quote]...perfectly portioned for an entire family to share. (Promo copy in OP's linked article)

Low-key judgmental.

by Anonymousreply 2501/05/2021

Actually you're right, R24. It's both shoddy ingredients (that perhaps may have been shoddy to begin with), AND changing palates.

by Anonymousreply 2601/05/2021

R22, i guess i am old. i'll be turning 47 next month. Though i look 25.

Oh! I hope I have a suitable occasion to serve one.

I prefer a Friendlys' Jubilee roll.

by Anonymousreply 2901/05/2021

The way it works is that it’s partially melted/dented when you get it home. You pause, rest your hand on it and say, “Oh, damn.” And your friend looks and says, “We might as well eat it tonight.” And then you divide it in two before putting away groceries. That’s how you get rid of all evidence.

by Anonymousreply 3001/05/2021

I remember eating it with my family back in the 90s. Didn't try another until last year. There's also a toffee version (at least there is in Australia).

Viennetas are still licensed to Morinaga in Japan, so I had them a couple of times while I lived there (until about a year and a half ago).

Adult verdict: Fat Whore Disappointed.

R39 "Friend" my ass. I need no "friend" in that scenario!

Ocado accidentally delivered me a mint Viennetta a couple of years ago. I served it at a retro themed party.

Fun for retro value but not great.

by Anonymousreply 3701/06/2021

They were scrumptious!

Do they sell these at the Hotel Sacher? I’ll be there next year.

by Anonymousreply 3901/06/2021

Mint sounds just revolting.

by Anonymousreply 4001/06/2021

R40, it's alright, the mint is not overpowering. At least not in the version sold here.

by Anonymousreply 4101/07/2021

That thing must be loaded with preservatives. It must affect the taste.

OMG! I used to LOVE Viennetta. Buying new stretch pants as I type.

by Anonymousreply 4301/07/2021

If the new version doesn't pan out, I might have to try making my own.

by Anonymousreply 4401/07/2021

Has anyone seen them in stores yet? I check online pickup on my phone often, in hopes it comes in stock.

by Anonymousreply 4501/11/2021

I picture a slice of Viennetta served in a crystal Fancy Feast bowl. The fork rings against the crystal and Dataloungers come running like the pissy Fancy Feast cat.

I remember the commercials for this when I was a kid and always seeing them in the supermarket when I would go with my mom. We bought it a couple of times and it was fine, but smaller than one would think and expensive.

Shortly after it was gone.

by Anonymousreply 4701/11/2021

Bumping this post: Has anyone seen Vienetta in stores yet? I am sad, and ready to shell cash on high-end stress eating. At-home stress eating. Like, putting on YouTube and eating the whole Vienetta stress eating.

R9 So this is basically just chocolate chip ice cream?

Did you watch the video at R51? I want to lie down on that conveyor belt -- as long as I can get off before the chopping blade comes down.

What flavors to they come in?

by Anonymousreply 55Last Monday at 8:04 AM

A local Food 4 Less had some back in the 1990s when I was in college and I bought one, and all I remember is that it was small. Couldn't describe the taste of one if my life depended on it.

It’s new look doesn’t scream classy, to say the least.

Right, R59 - those Snackwells are so low fat!

[But honestly, during the low fat, generally high carb and at times high processed sugar diet craze, I don't think obesity rates were any worse. Remember when "carbo* loading" was a thing. Pasta was a super food, never thought to be bad in any amount."

It looks like it would taste like a standard Good Humor ice cream bar in cake form.

R8, I used to live in SoCal and would cross the border frequently. I once brought back several bags of Mexican Lays "Hot Dog Flavored Potato Chips" from Ensenada.

The bag had the statue of liberty clutching a giant weiner instead of the book/tablet. It was so camp. They sorted of tasted like ketchup and hot dog water. They were gross, but as Lays says, no one (especially a FAT WHORE) can east just one!
