Give Us Back Our Viennetta!

Wall’s Viennetta ice cream!

The Viennetta ice cream is loved by many and what’s not to love? Is it ice cream? Is it a cake? Or an ice cream cake? Who knows! All we know is that is has been a part of most of our childhood. It was something of a luxury to all of us back then. It’s the reward that our mothers would get us if we’ve been good, or occasionally for the whole family to enjoy in front of the television. And who can remember the commercial. Oh, the commercial! When they put out a plate of that textured creamy goodness and just slice those layers in half. Our mouth is watering just from writing this!

Wall’s Viennetta ice cream was first introduced by the British company, Wall’s, in 1982 and instantly became a hit in the 90s, making its way across the globe and finally arriving in Malaysia in the 2000s. The ice cream dessert cake is made by layering soft vanilla ice cream with chocolate, turning them into folds and topping it all of a hard compound chocolate at the top. A video of how Viennetta is made went viral  in 2016 and boy was it satisfying to watch!

The Viennetta has been such an iconic ice cream that many has requested for its comeback. This guy describes exactly how we feel – heartbreak.
