As you might expect, this is a Caplico, only a whole lot bigger. Along with the size increase comes a more normal ice cream cone shape, and a lot more difficulty and mess involved in eating it. Other than that, it tastes a lot like Caplico! You get a lot more chocolate versus cone, because it extends about 2 inches above the top of the cone, where normal-sized caplico just barely pokes out of the cone. In addition to that, the sheer thickness of the cone relative to the space inside is such that the overall ratio of chocolate to cone is weighted much more heavily towards chocolate in the giant edition. I'm not sure this is an improvement, but I'm willing to eat aerated chocolate.|
I guess what it comes down to for me is the question of which size I would rather have. And ... I think it's normal size! These big ones are just messy. And though I don't remember what I paid, I'm betting you get better caplico for your money without the giantness gimmick. 8/10 Yums is a fair enough rating - almost as good as normal Caplico.
