Testers please answer the following questions:

- Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
Not very. Both products bland and boring.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?
Liked the chocolate covering but wasn't enough of it. The ice cream was very plain. Good size for a child though. I had to eat 2...

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
Again very plain. Neither of us liked any part of the sandwich ice cream.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not
No. Price tag for what you get is too high. Products look and taste cheap.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.
No I wouldn't recommend as I thought both products were bland and not a treat.

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
Proper chocolate hazelnut flavour creamy ice cream with chunks of bueno throughout! (Tub sort not cone/stick/sandwich)

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
•We all loved them
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?
•I love the fact they are made from milk as my 10 year old doesn't like milk unless flavoured, and he happily ate these with no question and was suprised when i told him what the ingredients are.
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
• They Taste delicious my only downsides would be that they are rather small and didnt remind me of kinder at all other than the kinder logo.
- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not
•Yes i would as then i know they would be getting calcium but still taste delicious
- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.
I would recommend in terms of taste and healthiness but the price is a little steep for what you get.
- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
A chocolate icelolly that tastes exactly like a kinder egg smile

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
Good to get 10 sticks in a packet.
Packaging attractive.
I was happy with the products, but if you’re used to chocolate on chocolate it would be a bit of a come down.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?
A partly chocolate covered version of the vanilla mini milk. Ideal for little hands and those wanting to watch calories. Easy to keep in the freezer as not too naughty a treat. DS preferred the sandwich and the cones that we bought as well - really thick chocolate on the top of the cones.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
I didn’t eat the sandwich as I’m gluten free. DS said it was ok, but prefers chocolate versions available from other ranges.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not
Not sure, would depend on whether I’m looking for a bit more luxury and price point compared to similar items.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.
I would say there are similar items on the market and would depend on personal preference and price point
- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
DS loved the kinder cones best of all. He loves chocolate and crunch, so something based on the white chocolate Bueno would be his idea of heaven.

ljdove1980 Mon 08-Apr-19 14:01:00

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?

Very satisfied, I love that they are perfectly sized for little ones, as well as being a tasty treats for grown ups. The children love them and I am really impressed with the focus on them being a nutritionally balanced snack as part of a healthy diet.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?

The children love the sticks although they did say they wish that the entire stick had been covered in chocolate, although for me as a parent this wasn't an issue at all.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?

Nothing, we all loved the Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich and loved the idea of having a biscuit surround rather than a standard wafer.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not

Yes definitely. I think the 40% whole milk is a real bonus as it's a fun and tasty way to make sure the kids are getting milk into their diet (my girls don't drink it). I also love that they are all relatively low calorie compared to other similar products so it feels as though they can still enjoy a treat without the high calorie/fat content.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.

Yes definitely, and I already have! Our friends and family have all been giving them a try and love them equally!

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?

I think something more along the lines of the standard Kinder egg would be great as when my kids hear the word "Kinder" they instantly think of the egg with the toy inside.

Kimali87 Mon 08-Apr-19 14:33:31

Testers please answer the following questions:

- Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
Myself and my children think the kinder ice creams were great!

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?
In the words of our 5 year old son it tastes just like a kinder egg but cold. Would be better if it was bigger in size

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
It was quite nice to be honest, again it would of been better if it was bigger

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not
Yes. The packs of sticks is a pack of 10 for £3.50 which is only 35p each which is a great price for our children who absolutely love kinder eggs

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.
Yes! I would reccomend to all adults / children who love kinder

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
Mini tubs of kinder ice cream with chocolate chips possibly with honeycomb sprinkles

munchbunch12 Mon 08-Apr-19 15:50:09

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
Very, overall

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?
Good child sized portions and nice flavours

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
It was very hard to find, it needs to be stocked in more places! My children liked it but my 4 year old found it a bit messy as it was melting before she'd finished it.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not
Yes I would due to the child portion size and good flavours

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.
I would, for reasons already given

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
Maybe choc and orange or choc and strawberry flavours? Or something that tastes like Nutella?

Pinklady1981 Mon 08-Apr-19 15:52:44

Overall as a family we were all satisfied with the products.
We all really enjoyed the sticks,they reminded me of mini milks but with a bit of chocolate. I think they are just the right size especially for kids,just for a little treat.
We didn't really like the sandwich ice creams. Not much flavour,wafer a bit soft.
Yes I would choose the sticks for a family treat as just the right size. Lovely flavour and not too many calories.
Yes I would recommend the sticks only as not too many calories.
When you think of kinder you think of the surprise egg,my 3 yr old absolutely loves them. So I would say maybe something egg shaped or a tub of ice cream with half and half in (white choc/milk choc)

Lilbratz Mon 08-Apr-19 15:53:49

- Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
It was a bit "meh" to be honest, other than the labels on the biscuit and stick wouldn't have known it was kinder. really disappointed to be honest.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?
When you bit into the portion covered in chocolate it did taste of kinder, could have done with the chocolate being all the way down the stick, rather than just the top portion.
Wasn't big enough!

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
Easy to eat with the soft biscuit, however the biscuit texture was that of "left out " biscuits.

Biscuit takes away the creamy taste of the icecream>
Not easily recognisable as a kinder product other than the name on the biscuit.
Needed some chocolate on it to make it "kinder!".

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not

No, i found them quite bland and not really living upto their famous name. I also found the sandwiches expensive at £3.50 a box of 6.
I prefer mini milk ice lollies over these.
I think you are paying over the odds just to have the name "Kinder" associated with them.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.
Unfortunate not, I think they are overpriced and not at all matching up to the high expectations I had of kinder as a brand.

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
Boxed/tub ice cream with chocolate drops in and wafer not soggy old biscuit.

Wanttomakemincepies Mon 08-Apr-19 15:55:45

child with Kinder Ice Cream?
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?I liked the size. The small amount of chocolate made it feel like enough of a treat. They did seem to start melting quite quickly.
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike? I liked the size. My son liked the wafer. A small amount of chocolate may be nice.
- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not. I probably would due to sugar content and size. My 9 year old didn't complain about the size.
- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not. Yes because they are a nice size. They taste good without having too much sugar. However, I think amount of sugar could still be reduced further and it would have little impact on the taste.
- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be? Chocolate ice cream stick with white chocolate on the outside. Or the little bits on the outside of a bueno.

Kittywampus Mon 08-Apr-19 16:13:59

Just placemarking for when I manage to find them in the shops!

Mumwith6 Mon 08-Apr-19 16:15:18

Overall the kinder ice cream sticks taste amazing!! I was disappointed with the lack of kinder taste though, felt it definitely didn’t taste any what similar to actuall kinders. I think chocolate should be added to the kinder sandwiches as I feel it would taste nicer, too pricey for my liking would choose mini milks everyday over the kinders as I thought they even tasted better. The kinder sticks are too small and not enough chocolate should be all the way down!!
If kinder launched a new product I would love to see kinder bueno tubs of ice cream with the lush bueno filling throughout with no soggy biscuit. Sadly I would not recommend the kinder sticks or sandwiches as overall I think they are too overpriced for the quality and size of the product but did enjoy them but not for the price

mrscee Mon 08-Apr-19 16:15:45

Testers please answer the following questions:
- Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream? My twins loved the the kinder ice creams and I enjoyed them too.
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike? I don't think we'd had them in the freezer long enough because they fell apart whilst we ate them. We loved the chocolate bit on the top.
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike? Very tasty 😋 lovely creamy ice cream
- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not I like the fact that they aren't huge and just the right size for small children. I probably wouldn't choose it for myself as they are small.
- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not. Yes I would recommend as they are ideal as a treat for little children
- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be? An ice cream version of a kinder bueno would be amazing 😉

Ftumch Mon 08-Apr-19 16:16:57

- Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?

Fairly satisfied.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?

DS liked it, I found it too sweet. It was very similar to a mini milk but not as nice.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?

DS liked this best, I also liked it but again found it too sweet. DH said it would be improved by some chocolate sauce or similar in the icecream.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not

I might choose them if they were on offer. I would normally choose something more indulgent as we dont eat a lot of ice creams.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.

Probably not, the ice creams are only ok and its not the sort of things that comes up in conversation often!

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?

Ice cream that tastes like the middle of a Bueno, that would be heaven!

queenoftheschoolrun Mon 08-Apr-19 16:28:18

- Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?

It took a lot of tracking down and we couldn't find any Ice Cream Sandwiches within a 20 mile radius so gave up in the end. My DD and her friends really enjoyed the Ice Cream Sticks.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?

I thought they were small and expensive but DD and friends thought they were great, said they tasted nice and didn't comment on the size. They did say they didn't taste anything like Kinder eggs though.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?

Not available in any local supermarkets.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not

Not unless they were on special offer. I thought they were small and overpriced but they obviously tasted good.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.

No, I didn't think they were good value for money or anything special. My DD might though!

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?

Ice cream that tastes of Kinder Eggs

SillyMoomin Mon 08-Apr-19 16:47:40

I’m really sorry for this feedback!, never been so negative in a review before, but I guess Kinder do want the truth, so:

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?

Not at all. It wasn’t even a plain vanilla. It was just plain tasted of nothing

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?

Tiny, wafer didn’t taste of the nuttiness we’d expect from kinder, ice cream was bland and didn’t taste creamy

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?

Disliked a lot. Biscuits were plain- there was so much kinder could have done with these! A layer of nutty chocolate on the inside; or chocolate ice cream or something other than tasteless bland biscuit with tasteless not even creamy ice cream.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not

No. No taste, and too expensive for what they were

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.

No. I wouldn’t want them to be disappointed

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?

Something that actually tasted on kinder chocolate

PopWentTheWeasel Mon 08-Apr-19 16:55:54

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?

My child loved the products. I liked that you got 6 - 10 items in a pack so they have the potential to last longer than, say, a 3-pack of magnums, especially if you have a crowd of children around.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?

I disliked the flavour - sorry. I think it's the similarity on appearance to Mini Milks. I epxected it to be vanilla flavoured but just tasted like Kinder Egg, which I guess is what it's meant to do. DS loved it and preferred it to the sandwich version.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
I liked the design of these - they reminded me of the ice cream that my grandmother hand in the early 1980s when you could buy a block of ice cream and cut it into chunks to serve in a wafer sandwich. I was remeniscing over this with DS, who humoured me. I like that there's nothing else similar to this on the market.

DS liked these less, I suspect because of the lack of chocolate, but they still disappeared from the freezer so they weren't that unpopular.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not

I would compare these with the Haribo lollies that have gummy bears in the handle. These would seem to be less sweet, because of the lack of gummy bears, so I'd buy this for DS in preference, if we saw both on a day out.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.

Yes if I knew their children liked the Kinder chocolate eggs.

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?

Something with dark chocolate or mint, more grown up flavours so they'd appeal more to the whole family.

Thank you for inviting us to test them out. DS' face when told we'd be going to get free ice cream was something to behold.

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be? An ice cream version of a kinder bueno would be amazing

EllieTea Mon 08-Apr-19 17:08:12

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
I loved them! Although did think they were quite expensive.
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike? I loved the kinder ice cream stick, the chocolate tasted lovely, just a shame there wasn’t more chocolate. My daughter thought the same.
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike? Wasn’t keen on these. Would of been so much nicer with chocolate ice cream.
- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not. I would only buy the ice cream on the stick again, but only if they were on special offer.
- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not. I would recommend them, as think they are nice, I’m sure kids will love them as a treat.
- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
Would like more of a egg ice cream just like the kinder egg. And something with more kinder chocolate!

SamA3 Mon 08-Apr-19 17:17:50

- Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
The whole family enjoyed these, all were satisfied.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick?
I liked the size, but found the ice cream bland and chocolate was lacking.

What did your child like or dislike? My child liked everything about these little sticks of joy

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich?
Whilst they tasted nice, the lack of chocolate was disappointing.

What did your child like or dislike? My child really enjoyed these, although they were a little messy once they start to melt in tiny hands.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? I probably would, yes.

Please explain why or why not? My child enjoyed these so I would buy again, but I did find they were quite over priced and it was difficult to find a stockist for the sandwiches

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Yes, if they have youngsters

Please explain why or why not. I would recommend because they are something different.

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?

I would like to see a slightly bigger ice cream on a stick but with much more chocolate and more nuttiness, I don't feel these resemble the kinder brand well.

Thisoneorthatone Mon 08-Apr-19 17:38:36

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
They were yummy and I was really pleased to try them but I felt like there was definite room for improvement.

What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?
My 6, 4, 2 year old and I all tried these. My 2yo said "it Yummy!", the 6 year old said "Fantastic! Like the chocolate bit" and the 4 year old said 'like the white bit; the white bit was so shivery and so yummy".
One of the icecreams broke at the bottom of the chocolate bit when I unwrapped it but my 2 year old (surprisingly) decided to accept a swop without complaint.
The creamy Kinder taste comes across surprisingly well. I felt like it could have done with one more component for me (cookie dough? Another layer?) but I'm greedy. Good size for all my age children. Relative healthiness reassuring. The sticks are a bit small (scared of icecream sticks since our little dog ate one when baby dropped his icecream) but that can't be helped really.

What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
The corners broke a bit when I opened them and they weren't wafer like I expected, more mushy biscuit. The 6yr old and 4yr old agree they taste like marshmallow. Good sizes. 4 yr old (who has never seen an Andrex ad) said "it smells like warm air from outside". One of them said "Yum yum scrum yum."
It could be good with chocolate drizzled on top or half dipped into chocolate. It felt like it would be good to make into a sundae. I did like the wafer despite it being mushy biscuit but it needed something else, some chocolate or a Bueno hazelnut layer.

Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not
I definitely wouldn't rule out buying them again, especially the icecream sandwiches, because I do love the size and they're nicer than mini milks. They're also quite a good price especially the sticks. The stick one breaking put me off those a bit though because it was hard to eat broken and my fingers got cold, plus if it had happened to more than one we might have had tears. I would buy the sandwich ones again though, as a sort of middling icecream treat.

Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not
I would, especially the cream sandwich one, but maybe with reservations. Both were quite bland; though none of my children are that discerning, an ice-cream is an ice-cream, they definitely liked the taste and I was very happy with the size and relative healthiness. They definitely could have been more interesting, maybe the Bueno ones are better.

If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
Both tasted more like Kinder than I expected but maybe could have done more so. I like a previous poster's idea of an egg shaped kinder icecream, or maybe a hippo, and it would be good to get more flavours in both of them, chunks of hazelnut or another layer of something. Maybe the stick of the stick one could be a toy like a flute or a whistle. They all had a lot of individual packaging too, it's a shame the sandwich ones couldn't have been sturdy enough to just put in the cardboard packaging. Thank you so much for letting me test them though, three very happy children, ultimately very pleased with all their icecream! gringrin

carolineandbaby Mon 08-Apr-19 17:39:31

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?

My child very satisfied. The sticks were great for my youngest who is just 16 months old. The size of it was ideal for small hands and mouth. My oldest loved the sandwiches more, as did I!

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike?

From my perspective it was the price. The price of the sticks was pretty reasonable but the sandwiches (and I also looked at the cones while in store) are quite pricey.

- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?

Genuinely nothing. These were really delicious.

- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not

Possibly not as there are like for like alternatives at a better price and although they were delicious when you are a family on a budget price can be everything.

- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.

Yes as they tasted great. They were a real treat with some much chocolate.

- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?

Mini ice cream tubs that could be used for party puddings.

NicHay Mon 08-Apr-19 18:10:12

Overall, how satisfied were you and your child with Kinder Ice Cream?
Satisfied
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Stick? What did your child like or dislike? We liked the ice cream stick. Reminiscent of mini milk - a great small stick. The children would have wanted something bigger but mine are older.
- What did you like or dislike about Kinder Ice Cream Sandwich? What did your child like or dislike?
I didn’t really like the biscuit but the rest of the family did,
- Would you choose Kinder Ice Cream as a treat for you or your children over other similar treats? Please explain why or why not
No - expensive for what you get. My children are older and would want something bigger but great for younger children.
- Would you recommend Kinder Ice Cream to friends or family? Please explain why or why not.
I might for younger children but only if they were on offer.
- If Kinder Ice Cream was launching a new product, what would you like it to be?
Something with nuts in

The ice cream stick was good for a small snack on a hot day - bit like a mini milk.

lau888 Mon 08-Apr-19 18:18:04

Overall, we were satisfied with Kinder Ice Cream - my younger child thought it was "just right" for them.

It was easy to find the ice cream stick products at our local supermarkets. (So far, I still haven't found the ice cream sandwiches.) I really liked the portion control and the kids liked the ice cream. They thought it had similarities to mini milks and (mini) magnums - in the shape and style. The size of the ice cream is more appropriate for kids than other ice cream products so, yes, I would choose this over similar treats. However, the price point seems high so it wouldn't necessarily be my first choice; it would be one of my preferred choices. Also, it was harder to "sell" it to my elder child as a treat - perhaps because it was plainer than some ice creams. (They did enjoy how easy it was to serve themselves though, and they were happy to eat it.)

I would recommend Kinder ice cream to families with younger kids or, possibly, adults on a calorie restricted diet. My mom tried one of the ice cream sticks and felt it wasn't sweet enough but the kids had no complaints about the taste. My younger child chose to have the Kinder ice creams over other ice creams, as dessert on a second occasion, but my elder child didn't pick it as their first choice (having sampled it on a previous occasion). I don't think I would recommend this universally, as my limited number of taste testers suggest it's more suited to younger kids than adults or older kids. (Personally, I would eat the ice cream sticks but maybe not that many fellow adults still like the taste of Kinder egg chocolate!)

If Kinder Ice Cream were launching a new product, I'd like to see something that targeted older children too. Portion control benefits all ages but a little extra styling could make the ice cream sticks seem "older" or cooler - even something simple like sprinkles/flakes on the chocolate. I would be far more likely to buy Kinder ice cream products if they had the same strength of appeal to the whole family - not just the youngest member! x
