Sorry it’s taken a while to get to this. It’s another of the gelato-inspired flavours, with packaging to match the others. Except that this one is not co-branded as ‘Messina’; it looks like the same range, but lacks the endorsement of the posh-ice-cream-shop-du-jour.

There’s a reason for this. It’s not actually inspired by gelato at all. It’s actually inspired by a 2011-era Tim Tam, called ‘Tim Tam Black Forest‘.

Yep, that’s right. It’s exactly the same biscuit. Same filling, same chocolate, same chewy centre. And I have absolutely nothing more to say about it. Read the other review, or just note that it’s not that good, and gets a six out of ten.

 

Update: between writing this and publishing it, it seems the pack has now been amended and does carry the Messina endorsement. Very strange…

  1. Is it exactly the same? I was underwhelmed by the weak flavour of this biscuit.

    • I was pretty sure they were the same, going back to my earlier review and the memories from that, but I suppose it’s possible they were slightly different. I also solved the mystery of the missing ‘Messina’ tag from the wrapper. IN fact it is there, but the colour choice (sort of brown-grey against pink) makes it pretty much unreadable unless you get it in the right light. If you look closely at the pic in my blog, you can actually just make it out in close-up. They have now changed the colour, so it’s much clearer.
