The Coconut Collaborative ‘Snowconut’ Icecream

Spotted this hiding amongst the sorbets in Sainsburys yesterday, I had never seen it before and was pleasantly surprised when upon closer inspection I discovered it was free from lots of things.

What is it?
Basically icecream made from coconuts
The milk of two coconuts in each tub apparently
Cold doh! 😉

Free from:
Dairy
Gluten
Wheat
Soya
Egg
Animal products

Thus suitable for:
Vegans
Vegetarians
Coeliacs
A variety of allergies/intolerances
Hot people
Paleos dieters apparently…

Packaging:
Stands out
Has little nakey people on it
Looks a bit like its been designed by illustration students/graduates (not a bad thing).
Includes clear freefrom list
Mentions their funky website

Looks like:
Whiteness
Snow
Soft icecream
Occasional tiny black specks (vanilla)

Smells like:
Coconut
Slightly of vanilla, mainly coconut.
Coldness, it is a scent, I think.

Feels like:
Really soft and cold
Melts very easily

Tastes like:
Coconut
Very sweet
Reminds me of my attempt at whipping coconut cream with icing sugar to make a vegan whipped cream
Its yummy but gets sickly quite quickly cause I ate too much…

Price:
£3 in Sainsburys
I think it would last due to fact its too sickly to eat toooooo much…WRONG!! I could eat the tub in a sitting…

Conclusion:
Its yummy
Hubbypants liked it
Toddlerini liked it
I liked it
I did find it possessed a very slight sickliness after eating quite a bit (I’m not proud).
They do a choccy one too, that’s got to be worth a buy hasn’t it?!


4/5 everyone liked it, just a bit too sweet for me.
