I know that the grass is always greener, but I'd much rather have this (http://www.sodeliciousdairyfree.com/) available in the UK.


Now that DOES look good, where do i get my mitts on it Flid?

Today, we tried the coconut and the maple pecan flavours. We put them together in a bowl and topped it with melted chocolate. Tastes divine!:) if I had to pick the best of the three I've tried so far it must be the maple pecan. The chocolate one is good but too strong for me. I've never been a big fan of chocolate though. I know it sounds crazy!

no, they're much smaller :(
Same size as Ben & Jerrys I think, about the size of a small Starbucks coffee cup, maybe a bit shorter
It's very expensive for something that size, but I must try it all the same! Hopefully Infinity will have it in soon.

Yep tried the chocolate one!

Thought it was pretty amazing, and very rich, i could only eat a small amount, i've had to store it down the road, not sure i'll be seeing it again.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Witchy, are you anywhere near Nottingham? I think there's an Out Of This World health food shop in Notts, like there is in Leeds. .

Oh...really? I'll have to look.

If I'm lucky the vegan store here will get it. lol

witchy - Out of this World is in Beeston, I bet they have it, but I haven't seen it (nor looked though!). I got it on a rare trip to Newark if you're anywhere near there.

If you do live in Nottingham then, this does mean you can save me some hehehe

Well I've only tried the chocolate and wasn't that impressed but my ex thinks it's really good. I will try the other flavours in my HFS - coconut and vanilla but really I don't think you can beat Swedish Glace - the vanilla is only £1.55 in Tesco and the taste is SO great.... and comes in loads of flavours.

I've tried the chocolate one too - not really for me, it's very cocoaey so good if you like dark choc.

I noticed today the Maple & Pecan and Ginger flavours are 50p more than chocolate or vanilla!:eek:

At £5.49 for 500ml, I won't be trying them as I haven't been that impressed with the 'cheaper' ones:cool:

(Glace is much nicer I reckon:p)

Beeston? Oh not that far then, I think I'll be going on an ice cream hunt soon. ;)

The Maple Pecan, which i am eating right now, is pretty sweet.

I tried the maple syrup one yesterday - I prefered it to the chocolate one and will buy it if it come to my area.

I find the chocolate one really rich and can only eat small amounts at a time, I guess that means it will last longer so seems better for the price? My friend who is an omni says it tastes like Gu chocolate pudding and was really suprised buy it being vegan. :p

The vanilla one sort of taste cashew nutty (yeah I know cause thats what its made with:rolleyes:). Its nice but I prefer B'nice vanilla cause its more refreshing.

The maple pecan one is good but to be honest I'm not really into nuts so I'm not that keen.

Ginger one has an interesting flavour, I would definitely buy it again cause its unusual.

The coconut one is my favourite, years ago I used to make coconut ice cream so I was more than pleased when I found out about vegan coconut ice cream :D.

I agree that its nice when its slightly melted. I feel it has an interesting mousy style rather than a runnyness that other ice creams have. All in all I like it and I would buy it again but I still like B'nice Rice creams the most.

I recently did a taste comparison with the b'nice and the stuff in a tub chocolate flavours - they're both nice enough, but I didn't think the b'nice was any tastier than swedish glace (which is a lot cheaper). I really like the b'nice strawberry flavour though, and definitely think it's nicer than tofutti strawberry (which is the only other vegan strawberry icecream I've seen... oh, maybe Mother Hemp do some as well, I've haven't tried that yet).

I watched a film called 'the stuff' (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0090094/plotsummary) a couple of days ago, it's beginning to sound disturbingly accurate!

Lol Risker!

I think "less refreshing" and "more mousse-y" than other ice creams is a good description Digital Ghost.
