Wall's Love Matcha
As you can see, the top is a bit crushed but it's the only one left so I've got no choice.
It's soft, like the usual Wall's economical line of 'ice cream'. Apostrophes because that type is closer to Soft Serve, which is a type of ice cream that is softer than regular ice cream as result of air being introduced during freezing. But even when compared to McDonald's vanilla cone, they aren't sweet enough, have a distinct chemical flavor, and melt very quickly so I can say they're low quality ice cream. Thankfully their premium line, the ones being sold in plastic box and bleached cardboard container, have better quality.
Back to the product. Love Matcha got vanilla ice cream for the top layer, green-tea ice cream in the middle with a layer of chocolate , crunchy cone, and white choco chips sprinkle. Inner tip of the cone is sealed with solid chocolate to prevent ice cream seeps out. The vanilla ice cream was so foamy, like whipping cream, while the green-tea one manages to stay a bit more solid. Flavor-wise, the vanilla wasn't anything special while the green-tea chocolate could use more sugar to balance the double bitterness from matcha flavor and chocolate. The part I enjoyed the most was actually the cone. It's sweet, crunchy, and slightly toasted.
To sums it up, it's in poor quality but considering they cost less than a dollar per piece, I guess it's just a realistic sacrifice to make frozen treats readily accessible for the people in lower economy spectrum.
If you can love Wall's ice cream, you can love this. But if you just love matcha flavor, you can skip this one and won't miss much.
