When I was young there was a few ice cream cakes, but now there are very nice frozen cakes better than the viennetta.

 

Perhaps - but it is a taste memory, nostalgia thing.  We did the Carvel ice cream cakes and the Baskin Robbins ones for the kids. Vienetta was more adult oriented I think.

Viennetta always looked classy to me. Let us know, @Kim Shook, if the "formula" is the same as it was in the '90s.

 

It has never disappeared in Europe, I ate it last year and it was the same as always.

Yes, it was famous and luxurious as a kid, a lot of marketing. The only problem for me is not that the chocolate melts in my mouth, and it would be better if it had nuts.

Viennetta was a late 70's early 80's invention in the UK.

 

Kentucky Fried Chicken (no brevity then) would give you one "free" with a family meal, for added pestering power.

If the bucket based carnage lasted too long it defrosted into a froth....

....escalating birth order rivalry into the internecine warfare of a contested election. 

 

 

Here in the Motherland, they sell a miniature knock-off version, on a stick, that's guaranteed to hit the pavement before it hits your lips.
