The new line aims to appeal to fans whose favourite part of a standard Cornetto is the solid chocolate tip at the bottom of the cone, with the packaging featuring the tagline: “Now there’s no waiting for the best bit.”
Cornetto Tips will be sold exclusively at Tesco in boxes of five for £3.
Instagram account @newfoodsuk shared a picture of the new product on Wednesday, showing what the Cornetto Tips look like when unwrapped.
The caption read: “New Cornetto Tips! Let’s all be honest, the best part of a Cornetto is the chocolate tip at the bottom of the cone - so these are a genius idea! However, 5 for £3 is a bit pricey, when you could buy a pack of 5 Cornettos for £1 and eat the tips of them!”
Another Instagram account, @kevssnackreviews, has shared a photo of the new product next to a ruler, revealing that the cone tips measure just under 7cm.
The product is part of a new line of miniature versions of Wall’s favourites. Other items in the range include Miniature Cones, which are a smaller version of a standard Cornetto and come in chocolate and vanilla and cost £3 for a box of 10.
There are also Ice Cream bites – ice cream dipped in chocolate, available in vanilla and strawberry (£2 for a box of 10). For Magnum fans, there are Magnum bites - balls of ice cream covered in chocolate, available in classic, white, chocolate and almond (£3.50 for 12).
Jeannie Richardson, UK Senior Brand Manager, said: “We know that Brits love snacking and miniature formats, so we’re thrilled to be launching a delicious range of small bite snacks from some the nation’s favourite ice cream brands.”
The new launch comes shortly after Tesco announced another exclusive line with Pret A Manger. The supermarket is now selling frozen Pret croissants and is the first retailer to stock food items from the high-street chain.
