Confirmed in store in Dubbo, also available online.
Digging into the Candy Bar now. It's pretty good as far as low calorie ice cream goes.
The boycott of Ben & Jerry's has begun!!!
VIVA La NON BEN Jerry
Is it pre-licked?
Are you referring to the "Ice-Cream Challenge?"
Lick for Clicks
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.
Agreed. tried the cookies and cream and it's vile.
Diet Ice cream.
Who'dve thunk it.
Agreed. Nobody wanted to eat these in my house.
I gave my 2 tubs to my dog. They were revolting and made me angry each time my freezer was full with these tubs wasted useful space.
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.
@jazoom: Because these are basically a frozen protein shake, and my assumption is that not having it be a solid lump of ice is difficult.
@lbft: That's the most (only?) difficult part in making any frozen dessert like ice-cream. A decent ice cream maker shouldn't have any problem with it.
@jazoom: So what's the recipe?
@wittyusername: For which? I've made heaps of different varieties before. Honestly, pretty much any recipe I've ever tried has turned out well, even the ones I found on cooking blogs. I am partial to replacing all milk with cream, though, and ignoring "double cream" (it's more expensive).
@jazoom: Any low calorie one. What does she substitute the sugar with?
@wittyusername: I believe she uses xylitol. I actually don't know her recipe, and she's not here at the moment. I think she also uses coconut cream in it.
Any tips on making homemade ice cream?
When a recipe calls for milk and cream, replace all the milk with the same volume of cream. 🤤
Also, look around for an ice-cream recipe book. This one is pretty good:
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.
Well you can say that about anything…
Just add sugar to literally all your food, it will taste better.
