My OH came back from sainsburys this morning with a tub of vanilla ice cream. It's rather tasty, not as good as booja booja but slightly cheaper and easier to get hold of. Apparantly it was on dragon's den.

Sounds great. I'll find out if my local Sainsbury's sells it. ;)

I got some today in Sainsburys. It says 'chocolate frozen dessert' on the carton. It isn't as nice as Booja booja or Swedish Glace but it's not bad! :)

I had this yesterday and HATED it!!. It just tastes like (expensive) slightly creamy sorbet to me :mad:

I've tried all 3 flavours.

I'm really unimpressed by it - Swedish Glace is far cheaper (even at half price) and much nicer.

We tried the vanilla flavour at the weekend and it's definitely not getting bought again! It's overly vanilla- flavoured but with a slightly thicker consistancy of sorbet. Which I never liked! Swedish Glace wins again.

Spot on as always, Mr Flibble! :)

I'll try it when I see it. TBH Swedish Glace always wins for me. I find the vanilla flavour better than anything on this Earth, including BoojaBooja.

I must be the odd one out because I enjoyed it but really didn't like swedish glace at all. Booja booja wins out for me though.

I have tried the chocolate one! It was "okay"...alas the shops round here no longer sell Swedish Glace!!

Do you live in an alternate reality where you are being punished for something you did in a past life?

More than likely...lol Slowly all shops seem to be getting rid of it, H&B sometimes has it for like 3 for ice cream so frozen it has disintergrated. lol

I thought this was awful, I tried both the chocolate and strawberry varieties. It just tastes like ice cream watered down. Very disappointed.

I might as well just pay an extra 1.50 for Booja Booja as it costs 3.99 in Sainsbury! I tried the strawberry one yesterday and it doesn't have a creamy ice cream consistency at all.

The texture is really different to other alternatives, but I personally really like the strawberry and chocolate ones. The vanilla is kind of awful though... and tastes like a mixture of ice and sentless perfume D:
On the positive side I love the chocolate one, and the strawberry one is nice allthough it has a bit of a weird after taste :) It's really low calorie and fat too

OMG. Just seen it in Sainsburys at 3.99 for 480ml, Swedish Glace was 1.99 for 750ml. In other words, weight for weight, Worthenshaws (made in England) was over 3 times as expensive as Glace (made in Sweden) and also, by popular opinion on VF, not as tasty. I really like the lass who designed the stuff and her presentation on Dragons Den and I'm glad that it's endorsed by the Vegan Society (UK) but at 3.99 for a small tub, the aroma I'm getting is "rip-off". Hate to think how much she was charging before she appeared on Dragons Den if the economies of scale have now kicked in.:eek:

Just tried this for the first time, got it on sale for 1.99 from Tesco's.

Like has been said, it's a bit watery, the water affects the texture too by causing crystals in it making it more like a sorbet. It really needs more fat to improve the texture and flavour but unfortunately they've decided to make it low fat.

I did enjoy it (had the chocolate one) but would much rather have swedish glace.

It's nice to have more brands at the Market though and it's good that they're different. There are sooo many dairy icecreams on the Market! Wish I could try it now, but will definitely try it nextvtime I'm in the UK.

I normally prefer chocolate flavour ice creams (eg Swedish Glace) but I wasn't keen on the Worthenshaws chocolate. I really liked the vanilla one though. Shame it is so hard to find.
