LIDL, LOWESTOFT – In a move that solidifies its reputation as the go-to destination for budget-friendly treats, supermarket chain Lidl has introduced Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cones to its shelves, aiming to cater to the decaying sweet tooth of its lower-working-class customers.

However, these icy delights are receiving mixed reviews, with critics questioning whether they truly live up to the hype.

Styled after the classic Italian-style cones, the Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cones offer a drab combination of hazelnut ‘flavoured’ ice cream nestled inside a damp, cardboardy waffle cone, topped with a chocolate disk adorned with minute hazelnut pieces. Additionally, each cone boasts a watered-down milk chocolate sauce at its core, promising just a hint of flavour in every bite.

Kinder in de binder?

Yet, despite their seemingly ‘irresistible’ description, some consumers are left underwhelmed by the product’s taste and size. Reports suggest that these mini treats lack the sumptuousness and delectability expected of their counterparts, such as the iconic Cornetto ice creams.

Critics argue that while they may be suitable for poor children craving yet another quick sugar fix, adults seeking a more indulgent experience may find themselves disappointed, with one reviewer humorously remarking that the ice cream “disappears after one lick.”

Even the seagulls of Lowestoft, notorious for their audacious attempts to snatch tourists’ ice creams, seem unimpressed by the Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cones, deeming them too small to bother pilfering.

Will people like Kinder ice cream?

As Lidl continues to expand its range of wallet-friendly offerings, only time will tell whether the Kinder Bueno Ice Cream Cones will become a staple in upper-crust shoppers’ carts or remain the ice cream of choice of cheapskates.
