Mermaid Cornettos are now a thing and they sound absolutely delicious

Mermaid Cornettos are now a thing - and they sound absolutely delicious.

The new launch features a bright pink cone and comes in two delicious flavours: there's the classic raspberry and vanilla ice cream, as well as the matcha and raspberry ice cream, finished with a twist of raspberry sauce.

For an added touch of enchantment, both treats are topped off with edible pearls and starfish shapes. The ice cream also comes wrapped in a holographic pink and blue wrapper, designed to look like mermaid scales.

The new release comes off the back of the launch of the hugely popular Unicornetto, an exclusive to Thailand, which caused a stir in 2018.

After seeing the success of the Unicornetto and the mermaid trend beloved by Gen Z and millennials alike, it only made sense for the brand to bring a bit of magic to the sweet treat. 

Now, for the downside to all of this deliciousness.

The Mermaid Cornetto looks to currently only be available in the UK at the moment - but we've reached out for more information on if (or when) it will be coming to Ireland.  

“Reflecting the trend for all things mermaid-inspired we’re excited to be bringing our new Cornetto Mermaid to shore this summer. Not only does it taste delicious, it looks incredible too! We’re certain that the unique look combined with the tangy and creamy flavours, Cornetto Mermaid is sure to bring smiles to ice-cream lovers across the UK this summer," Jeannie Richardson, Senior Brand Manager of Cornetto, said.

If you are heading to the UK any time soon, the new Mermaid Cornetto singles are available to purchase now from Merlin Sealife centres and other grab-and-go outlets for an RRP of £1.50, with multipacks now available at Sainsbury’s and Tesco for an RRP of £3.00.
