    Thumbs up Soyatoo vegan spray cream

    I just bought a very tasty vegan spray cream made by TofuTown. It's lovely added to vegan trifles and desserts and can be bought on-line from veganstore. You can also get a vegan whipping cream.

    Is it really nice? I was wondering about ordering some as cream is one of the things I occasionally miss. Does the kind in the can keep better than the other kind? Don't think cream in aerosols had been invented when I used to eat such things

    It keeps for three weeks. I think it's nice, but it is very sweet which may not go down well with everyone. It's not something I'd buy very often, just occasionally as a treat.

    I sometimes make vegan trifles, and the whipped cream was always the missing ingredient, so it's perfect for that.

    Thanks *M* - sounds as if I should give it a try. I guess you could compensate for the sweetness by having it with something tart (like rhubarb without any sweetening )

    I've heard rumours about a kinda vegan custard pie fight at the October Bristol Vegan Fayre using this squirty cream. Pictures will be taken for sure.

    Its also good on a hot choccy.

    I can confirm it's good, I've been getting it for over a month now. Works particularly well with vanilla icecream, chopped nuts, chunks of chocolate cake and warm fresh chocolate fudge sauce, but can also confirm that direct from can to mouth works too

    One negative thing is that it can't be kept in the fridge (only cooled before use, which requires far too much planning) and looses its consistancy within a few minutes. I can't remember whether dairy squirty cream does the same or not.

    is the whippable version being sold anywhere other than online yet?

    I kept my can in the fridge all the time and it worked fine straight from the fridge. I found that the first couple of squirts of the new can lost their consistency quickly and the rest thickened up quite nicely.

    Both the whippable and the squirty versions are sold by veganstore.co.uk as far as I know.

    If you like coffee, this stuff works very well as a topping, with a drop of cointreau in the coffee, and maybe a sprinkling of cocoa powder over the top for an arty effect

    Could be a plan whilst I spent yet more time procrastinating over which espresso machine to buy so I can make proper lattes.

    I have tried it as a topping to cocoa tree hot chocolate, although I generally don't get as far as making hot chocolate and sprinkle the shavings on ice cream instead.

    Being the sophisticated type I've been craving some scones for a while now, I need to track down some of the whippable stuff sometime.

    The squirty stuff is far, far, far better tasting than any vegan 'cream' that I've tried before either in restuarants, from cartons or stuff made fresh from nuts.

    yeah, never seen it at either of those too, their slant seems to be more vitamins and alternative health products than vegan products. I've seen it only in an indepandant store, who I don't believe buy it direct from the manufacturers so it must be available wholesale in the UK.

    I am a partner in a health store and we sell the Soyatoo spray cream and the topping cream. It is available from The Health Store in Nottingham, one of the major wholesale suppliers to the indie Health Food stores. If your local health store doesnt stock it, ask them too. They don't even have to buy full cases of it!! They can order a single carton/can of it if they want. It is the nicest soya cream that I have ever tasted!

    Now people have tried this and know it's worth buying, I have a question -

    Why does my squirty cream always seem to run out so quickly!?

    It feels as though there's some left in the can but that the propellant has run out. Maybe it's just that I'm unrealsitic and expect it to last forever?!

    So anyway, mine's run out

    I was so excited by the thought of Soyatoo and Chocoreale biscuits that I didn't even read the whole thread properly In answer to your question, thats happened to me too and I had to throw away half a can. Don't really know why it happened, maybe we should complain.

    Cherry, Maisiepaisie i have the exact same problem as you!! Both of the two cans i had seemed to still be half full but i cant squirt anymore out!! I thought i wouldnt bother getting anymore if they only gave you such a stingy amount. Could there be some kind of fault with this product/batch? Both of mine were from vegan store... We should defo complain!!

    did you keep it in the fridge like you weren't meant to do? It goes hard if you leave it in there too long.

    PS Mine weren't from Vegan Store, and were bought a few months apart, so I reckon it's not just a particular batch.

    No, the only times it's gone hard and not squirted properly is when it's been too cold. It only needs to be in there for 15 mins or so to get the good combination between temp and squirtability. It just needs warming up a bit again. If you get it just right then it's the ideal temperature for eating.

    Personally i like squirting it directly into my mouth, i seldom get round to actually putting it on anything these days

    Don't know about you two, MaisiePaisie and Catmogg, but that definitely isn't the problem with mine. Mine hasn't been in the fridge for at least 24 hours. It's at room temp, and it feels half full, it just won't squirt

    Well, I did hear it's quite common for vegans to have problems with squirting, but as I say i've had it quite a few times now and never experienced problems - I thought it was just propoganda. Are you sure it's not just the way you're doing it?

    before this thread gets all unnecessary i'd just like to add that my can didn't last very long either, and i didn't keep it in the fridge. i haven't bought any more because i was a bit disappointed with the amount i managed to use, and i don't think i can recycle the can which bothers me.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Soyatoo squirt cream. I was in shock when I found it at one of my natural stores. I have had it on strawberries and chocolate chips and in hot chocolate. Mine's in the fridge. No problem yet squirting it.
    My husband read the can and says to shake it twice and hold it completely upside down to squirt it. Forget if you are supposed to shake it while it's upside down or not.? Now I am worried that I didn't rinse it off last time and it might be moldy??? Horrors....must run home and check !

    I only bought one can because I didn't know how we'd like it, but I am going to go back and buy more. Tonight I plan to put it on hot chocolate again...yum! I am listening to the Chocolat soundtrack and just finished the book Chocolat. .. LOL!

    I have had non-squirting problems as well but I'm not a conscientious follower of instructions and probably didn't rinse the nozzle when I should have.

    I have a second can in the cupboard that hasn't been broached - will be interested to see if that is still in working order when I eventually get around to trying it.

    Ah yes, I learnt that lesson too

    It's not that the nozzle is blocked though; it's like the cream is in there, the can is in perfect working order, but there's no propellant left to get it out (and onto my chocolate cake )
