Cast your mind back to simpler times ... to when Tip Top's Dessertalicious was a thing.

Well, we've got some great news for you - the legendary ice cream brand is bringing back this beloved childhood fave!

However, the iconic classic has undergone some minor changes, and won't be layered like the old school styled delicacy which had chocolate mousse at the top, honeycomb ice cream in the middle and chocolate sponge at the bottom.

This time, the layers and flavours will be mixed together.

Dessertalicious - which Kiwis labelled as the "best ice cream ever" - suddenly disappeared from supermarket freezers and in the years following there was a public outcry.

Kiwis took the announcement so personally that fans organised a campaign to bring it back.

In 2017, Tip Top responded, saying: "The reason we haven't been able to bring it back to date is that we don't have the machine that makes this amazing creation anymore and it's quite a specific one.

"We want you to know though, that it is still very much in our thoughts and we are always looking at ways we can get around it and bring back this much-loved flavour."

Five years after that announcement, they delivered on their promise.

Crave Dessertalicious is expected to hit shelves this week with some dairies already revealing they have some in stock.
