^ £3 for the box - delivery is free if you spend over £35 and they are very good. Stuff usually arrives wthin 3 days of ordering, I love 'em :) (pity about the boxes though which apparently are unrecyclable in the U.K :( )

I've been complaining to GD about that. I bought some stuff from another supplier that came in an apparently identical box to the ones that GD use, and they supplied a label to send the box back so that they could re-use it. :confused: I wouldn't mind paying myself to send it back but they wouldn't have it.

Maybe if some more of us complain to GD they will have a rethink.

that's one of the reasons why i've never bought anything from Goodness Direct. it seems very wasteful to me, but luckily i can buy a lot of decent vegan foods in Brighton so i don't really need to use them.

i can't help thinking that after all this, the Booja Booja ice cream will be a bit of a disappointment. :o

It's only the chilled or frozen stuff that comes in the polystyrene boxes; groceries seem to come in ordinary cardboard boxes. But I can see that living in Brighton you don't need to bother with them, Gorilla :)

After reading about it on this forum, I went on a hunt for Booja Booja's "stuff in a tub" the other day, fully prepared to pay the hefty £5 price tag - I was not disappointed. I wanted to make it last a while cos it was so damn expensive, but it didn't quite last 24 hours between me and my better half.

Ah well, that's another one to add to my "occasional treat" list, along with Biona vegan cola bottles.

Oooh, lucky you, bryzee. Which flavour of "stuff in a tub" did you try?

bryzee86 - what do you think it tastes like eg: real ice cream, haagen daaz etc? (I want to know the taste before I waste my hard earned £5 :p )

Enchantress, I tried the hunky punky chocolate flavour - yum yum! And I felt so guiltless - it being sugar free/soya free/organic etc

Aphrodite - it tasted, in my own words, like "frozen truffles"! It was like they'd shoved their truffles in the tub, made all smooth, frozen and stuff. I don't know whether it tasted like the others, cos it's been 2 1/2 years since I last had dairy. However, I can say it was 10 times better than Swedish Glace chocolate, and 100s of times better than the (imho) frankly vile Tofutti varieties.

bryzee86 - you certainly convinced me with that description.
Now just have to find a stockist near me.

Mmmmmm...that's what I was hoping it would taste like. I shall have to nag my local shop but I think it's only been supplied to a few distributors.

I happened upon some after a job interview a couple hours ago. Obviously can;t afford it, but being after a job interview, found an excuse hehe. I bought the chocolately one and it is GOOD!! I wondered how they would justify a fiver but it is really luxurious tasting, kinda rich but dark chocolately so not too rich. um I don't know how to explain it but I liked it. I asked the man in the shop whether he had tried it: he said that he had tried the coconut one, and a customer had tried the ginger one, and both reviews were that they were really 'gingery/coconutty' I agree... it's like flavoured times 100. I'm hoping this will mean I won't eat so much at once and it will last. However, if I get this job, I suspect the first thing I bu will be one of each flavour :P

Fresh & Wild in Bristol should have it in by next Friday. Harvest are looking into it, Earthbound may well stock it, and Wild Oats will probably sell it also, I'm led to believe.
