Glico Giant Cone Ice Cream from Japan
On the way home from work, today I stopped by a supermarket and bought an ice cream product from Ezaki Glico that is related to Giant Caplico, a chocolate cone snack also from Glico that I introduced the other day.
Glico Giant Cone Ice Cream
The unmeltable chocolate snack associated with the ice cream cone, Ginat Caplico went on the market in 1970, while the real ice cream cone that melts in your mouth, this Glico Giant Cone Ice Cream was introduced in 1978.
Unlike Giant Caplico, the Giant Cone ice cream is topped with a thin milk chocolate plate on which crunchy candied peanut bits are scattered. As you can see in the photo, even inside the wafer cone, a thin crispy layer of chocolate is coated.
Correctly, the ice cream part of Giant Cone is classified as an Ice Milk, so it contains less milk fat than ordinary ice cream and is refreshing enough to calm the sweetness of the chocolate parts.
As a finishing, the bottom part of the wafer cone filled with unfrozen rich chocolate cream delights you, so, until the very end, the Giant Cone Ice Cream keeps you happy.
