Sunday afternoon unveiled a delicious and indulgent treat in the shape of Wafflelicious, a waffle and ice cream parlour in Wickford Essex. Situated in the corner of Willowdale Centre it’s the perfect place to drop in if you’re in need of a quick and reasonable sweet treat. Serving up waffles, pancakes, crepes, ice cream sundaes and milkshakes you can build your own from a range of toppings and sauces or choose from one of the specials on the board.
Naturally I ordered waffles as this was my first visit and it would’ve been rude not to go with the diners namesake aswell as an M&M Peanut Milkshake topped with whipped cream. Well there was no point pretending and ignoring the fact that this was me going way over the recommended sugar and calorie intake for the day so I might as well do it properly!
The Crunchie Waffle Special was easily enough to share and topped with chocolate sauce, crumbled Crunchie and a scoop of honeycomb Rossi ice cream I’m pretty sure you won’t have trouble finding someone to tuck in with you. The waffle itself was soft, warm and salty sweet and came with just the right amount of chocolate sauce to ensure it wasn’t too rich or sickly. The honeycomb ice cream however blew me away I couldn’t get enough of it. With a creamy vanilla base that the caramel sweet flavour ran right throughout the little hidden pieces of honeycomb crunched and crackled in your mouth. Delicious!
While we were dining Wafflelicious had a table of children enjoying a birthday party and I’m not going to lie I was a little jealous of the candy floss and party bags they were leaving with. My fear now is that my bikini body hopes are definitely out of the window as its going to take all my willpower to stop it becoming a regular Sunday thing!
