Aldi Gianni's Salted Caramel Protein Ice Cream

Aldi Gianni’s Salted Caramel Protein Ice Cream

With this Salted Caramel flavour, Aldi proves you don’t have to pay much for a pretty tasty protein ice creams. £1.99 is enough to get a somewhat appetising cold dessert. At least as long as you don’t care about its ingredients.

With a price of £3.50 and more per tub (how about £5 per tub?), protein ice creams are not the cheapest protein snacks out there. Therefore, anything that cost less, like £1.99 in this case, may seem like a good occasion. Or trap. Eventually, it says you get what you pay for. However, Aldi with their Gianni’s protein ice creams tries to do their best in this matter. And it’s not that bad, considering Choc Chip Cookie Dough ice cream was pretty OK. Is Salted Caramel any better than this?

As usual. This ice cream needs a moment or three from taking it out of the freezer to be comfortable to eat . You can make it faster by using a microwave oven or by simply relax and keep shopping if you want to eat it straight away after buying it. But the question is: is it worth buying at all?

Pretty tasty dessert considering its price.


It seems like you can’t get more of protein ice creams for £1.99. This ice cream tastes good. It consists of two primary flavours, Salted Caramel flavour ice cream and Salted Caramel Flavour Sauce. Both are nice and easily detectable, making this ice cream pleasantly tasty. However, they lack intensity and sweetness which I guess is the price you have to pay for this ice cream’s low price. The good thing is there’s no weird aroma or aftertaste which is very good. And overall, this is pretty lovely protein ice cream.

I ate half a tube of them. And then another half. And I guess it is enough for me. In other words, this ice cream is highly palatable and it’s pretty easy to eat an entire tub in one sitting. So be careful!

There’s only 151 kcal per half a tub, 4g of fat, 19.5g of carbs (including 15g of sugar) and 9g of protein. Not too bad. For the contrary, the ingredients list could be much better than it is, as there are added sugar, glucose-fructose syrup and sugar syrup. Well…

Not bad protein ice cream from Aldi.


Aldi Gianni's Salted Caramel Protein Ice Cream

Aldi Gianni’s Salted Caramel protein ice cream is pretty nice ice cream. It’s tasty (although it could be more intense in taste), it’s palatable and it has pretty nice macros. It’s also pretty easy to eat an entire tub in one sitting, so you should be careful. The only thing I didn’t like here is its ingredients list that is poor. But hey, for £1.99 per 480ml tub you can’t expect top-notch quality, can you?

Will I ever go back to this protein ice cream? I’d want to, but it lacks intensity and sweetness. And that ingredients list… So nope, I won’t.
