    These are yuck! Can't remember which flavour we got but even the kids wouldn't eat it.

    Edit: We got the cookies and cream one.

    Does anyone else go to coles and woolies, and see these “fancy” ice creams at half price. But then, realise even at half Price, they’re a rip off ?

    •  

      Yup. Ice cream isn't that expensive to make. It's mainly heaps of cream and sugar. Homemade ice cream is awesome, and not very difficult to make if you have a good freezer.

        These aren't made with cream and sugar, they're low calorie "frozen dessert" (the calorie count on the front of the tub is for the whole tub.)

        That doesn't make them any less overpriced, but you probably would struggle to make them at home.

          Some of them have cream and sugar. They have both dairy and non-dairy available.

        •  

          I'm curious why I would struggle to make these at home? What would make them more difficult? My wife makes no-added-sugar ice-cream frequently and it's surprising good. It's also no more difficult to make than the sugary varieties.

        Any tips on making homemade ice cream?

    •  

      Yes. The real retail price is the 50% off, the rest time its just double price gouge.

    Caramel Macchiato is pretty bad….

    like saw dust, but with only 360 calories….

    Contains palm oil. Don't buy if you care.

      Palm kernel oil I believe; significantly different.

      Also recall reading from sustainable sources, though I can't quote that

    This icecream is an oddity at work - sells quite well, yet the feedback I've received about it has been overwhelmingly negative.

    Often described as poorly textured dust.

    •  

      Yes.. sometimes people take the less tasty option if it's significantly more healthy.

      Who would have guessed we can't eat KFC and Ben and Jerry's 24/7

      •  

        Pretty much the reason I haven't tried it. If I'm concerned about my weight, I won't eat icecream. I'm not going to spend $10 on a tiny tub of disappointment when I can indulge with something much nicer.

        McDonald's with a diet Coke logic

        •  

          Thats pretty stupid logic.

          So anyone who is fit/slim/not fat doesn't eat any type of indulgent food?

          Or if they want indulgent food, they need to eat a whole tub of ben and jerries?

          There is middle ground, and yes that includes avoiding a sugar drink.

            @samfisher5986: Right, there is a middle ground. And for Salmando, the middle ground would be occasional 'good' indulgence (real ice cream, coke) rather than more frequent mediocre indulgence (halo top, diet coke). You guys aren't really disagreeing here, so your hostility is probably unwarranted.

      The majority of people who buy it beyond a once-off trial purchase are those who are very health & fitness orientated, or like to think they are.

    Looks like the chocolate flavour is also $5 now

    Tastes gross and fake

  •  

    FroPro Chocolate for the win. It's actually pretty nice.

  •  

    Probably on sale because they've all been licked

  •  

    Just go and buy a tub of Kapiti at ALDI. If you're too fat to eat ice cream don't pretend you're being responsible eating some poor substitute. Kapiti is better ice cream than the American or European brands that the Ozbargain brand snobs gravitate to.
