Ice Cream Season
I've spent the last 3 days trying to find a tub of Vanilla Swedish Glace to make Knickerbocker Glories this weekend, but to no avail. My local Tesco and Sainsbury's seem to have stopped selling it and the health food shops either don't sell icecream or had run out.
I managed to get a tub of the chocolate in The Eighth Day and spotted these little tubs of the latest contender at the same time, Coconice. Like Booja Booja, it's pricier than Swedish Glace, a little one person tub costs £2. I was delighted to find though that it had a spoon under the lid and couldn't resist tucking in on the bus. There were 3 flavours available chocolate, strawberry and a non vegan one with manuka honey. I went for the chocolate. It was pleasant enough and coming in a small pot is good news for me as I have more of an icebox than a freezer. I prefer my chocolate a bit more chocolately though, on inspection the label showed that there was only 4% chocolate! It was more caramely than chocolatey. Will definitely give the strawberry a try too though.
