Trends & Relics from 1992 to Yonder: Viennetta Ice Cream


The '90s was a memorable, incredible decade. Apart from the founding of Lomography and the community, there were other fads and pop culture icons that made noise, forever etching in the minds of many... and who could ever forget those velvety Viennetta ice cream on commercials?

Viennetta was an ice cream launched by Walls in 1982, but its popularity was more stellar in the '90s. It's a multi-layered ice cream cake, and face it, it was the first thing you grab from the grocery freezer. As the commercial says, "One slice is never enough." Unfortunately, this fancy dessert is no longer sold in the U.S., though you may find this in some parts of Europe.

Well, if you're up for DIY, you can find some ways that don't require the knowledge of a food scientist or a machine. Otherwise, here's video how the ice cream was made, dug from the '90s archive:
