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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

[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."

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!
