The continual reappearance of this thread is making me think I should go and buy an ice-cream maker :o

i looked in two shops today, and neither had the chocolate flavour. one shop (Sunny Foods) had all the others, and Infinity had all the others except maple pecan. having actually seen the size of the tubs, and considering i'd most likely be disappointed, i decided not to bother.

i do like the fact that the vanilla flavour is called Vanilla M'Gorilla ;) (whatever that means!) but i'm not paying £5 for a tiny bit of vanilla ice cream.

Heh, every time I see or hear the word 'gorilla' I think of you, Gorilla :D

Did you ever see The Mighty Boosh? There's an episode from the first series where they say it a lot :D

the maple syrup and pecan one. I like how 'clean' they taste and the maple one was particularly delicious

Indeed. It was far, far, far better than the tofutti maple pecan one.


but yes, not worth £5.

Not compared to other icecreams for eating at home, but we had our tub sitting by a river in cambridge on a hot summer's afternoon (we got it from a healthfood shop and carried on shopping for over half an hour - it really does need to be out of the freezer that long). A pint of beer/cider each would have cost more than that and I know which I'd choose :)

Tofutti ice creams are pretty dreadful, IMO.

interesting. apart from the price, one of the reasons i didn't buy any today was because it would've melted before i got it home, but it seems that's actually a good thing. if only we still had the weather for sitting outside eating ice cream *brrrr*

Can you get this stuff in the UK? Never seen it in my local area anyway....

Are you referring to Cool Hemp, Knottykc?
If so, I don't think it's available outside Canada, unfortunately.
Make a trip out to our lovely country and try some!

I managed to find the chocolate one in a little deli around these parts. I have had it for 2 months now and i still have half a tub left. Its ok in the tub if you want a quick spoonful but i didnt like it when i sat down and had a bowl full, far to sickly.

I got some vanilla from Fresh and Wild today and think it's great. It's my long term plan to buy and ice cream maker too Twinkle. The fact that this stuff manages to taste so great with only water, cashews, agave and vanilla gives me hope that I may be able to produce something simular.
Ice cream makers are about £20 and you can stick waterever you want in. I assume it wouldn't hurt your Omega oils to freeze like it does to heat so might be a way of getting healthy stuff down you too.

I bought a tub of the Coconut Hullabaloo and I'm very impressed with it. It's a bit pricey at £4.99 so unfortunately I won't be buying it very often.

I like the chocolate one much better than the other one I tried (pecan?) - extremely chocolatey and satisfying. Fortunately, as has already been noted, it's too rich to eat much of at a time...

I'm going to try the chocolate one next, the coconut is half gone already (I only bought it yesterday!). Hopefully as it's so rich it'll last longer. Are there strawberry, raspberry or other fruit flavours?

I think the ginger is pretty good...

More importnat, I finally got to try the chocloate last night and it's everything I'd hoped for - not too fat, not to sweet and VERY choclately in a dark chocloate sort of way, so I'm a happy bunny even if it is with a slimmer purse...

Hi, does anyone know if Booja-Booja ‘Stuff in a Tub’ can be bought somewhere ^ the south coast between Bournemouth and Seaton?

My first tub I bought in Yeovil (Ceres), but it's too far away...

If you ever find anywhere let me know!

Personally I feel this area has a serious lack of good vegan places. :(

We bought some in one of the health food stores in Bridport this summer (there's 3, it's not the one that sells booze). Ganesha in axminster is generally pretty good, if they don't have it I'm sure you could order it.

If I was you I'd look up health food shops in the area and ring them to ask.

Ganesha in Axminster don't sell it.
But you're right with Bridport--the store is "Naturalife".
"Naturalife" has also a store in Dorchester selling Booja-Booja's Stuff in a Tub.
I called all the other health food shops, but noone else had it.
Not one single shop in Poole/Bournemouth--what a shame.
