Our freezer's new friend: Weis Mango and Cream

Costco in Korea can be a good thing or a bad thing. Whenever you arrive, you feel like you're getting a taste of home. However, once you realize how much money you're spending on "food" it starts to get funny. Every week at Costco, there seems to be new items and a reshuffling of existing inventory. It's always fun to "buy" something new to test out.

One new item in our freezer right now is a tub of Weis Mango and Cream. This Australian ice cream product is the combination of mango sorbet and ice cream. The sorbet portion contains "Kensington Pride mangos from tropical North Queensland" and the other portion is rich ice cream. I have never tried this before and I must say it was quite the experience. The mango sorbet was refreshing and when blended with the ice cream portion it made for a nice treat, especially in the dead of winter.

Weis Mango and Cream comes in a one litre tub:

I think the picture on the tub hooked me...this tub cost us 5000w (5USD):

...and here is the inside, the mango sorbet on the left and the ice cream on the right:

This review is for those looking for an alternative to Korean ice cream...which I do still enjoy. Remember the pig in the tuxedo bar?
