Is the ice cream any good?

Woolworths White Chocolate Macadamia Mango Ripple Ice Cream offers excellent value for money. The white chocolate ice cream is creamy and easy to scoop, with a delicious flavour most will enjoy.

Ribbons of mango and passionfruit ripple runs the tub, making up 11% of the ice cream. This hit of fruit flavour is delicious.

The ripple is excellent.

Macadamias are sprinkled through the ice cream, providing lots of a crunchy texture. Maca lovers will enjoy this product, but I found the nuts a chore to grind through – more like a breakfast cereal than an indulgent dessert.

While this ice cream is delicious, keep in mind that water is the main ingredient. It differs from other pint-sized ice creams that use higher quantities of milk and cream.

That means the Woolworths option lacks the smooth, indulgent texture you get from higher-priced competitors.

  • The ice cream has a nice flavour and texture.
  • Delicious mango ripple.
  • A cheap alternative to premium pint-size tubs.


  • The macadamias are hard work to munch through.
  • Long ingredients list with water as the biggest component.

Is there a similar alternative in supermarkets?

Connoisseur Caramel Honey Macadamia 1L: A similar ice cream that contains honey instead of mango. It’s got a higher ratio of cream, giving it a more indulgent feel. The Connoisseur tub costs less per ml, making it a great alternative if you enjoy honey and macadamias.

Milk fat

Milk fat plays a vital role in the texture and mouthfeel of ice cream. More of it results in a creamier, smoother texture associated with superior products.

Woolworths White Choc Maca Mango Ripple contains 10% milk fat. That’s higher than most family-pack ice creams like Peters or Streets Blue Ribbon but lower than brands like Murray Street and Haagen-Dazs.
