Product Review Swedish Glace Ice Cream
That’s Swedish Glace off my shopping list as well known animal torturers Unilever buy the company.
Finding an ice cream type dessert that's dairy free for anyone who suffers from lactose intolerance or who is a vegan, can be tricky.
Note - although this is very like ice cream and tastes like ice cream, it is labelled as a 'rich dessert.' Only a product containing milk can be called ice cream.
I was delighted therefore to come across this amazing product in my local Holland and Barrett store.
At first glance, when you look at the packaging Swedish Glace just looks like normal ice cream. Scouring the label, I found that it was completely dairy free and contained no egg.
It's also cholestrol and gluten free, so perfect for those watching their cholestrol and who are gluten intolerant. And there's no genetically modified ingredients either, so this is a wholesome treat.
If you fancy trying a different flavour, it also comes in smooth vanilla, juicy raspberry and wild blueberry.
On first taste, this does taste like ice cream. Very chocolately ice cream. But the more you eat the more it tastes like a very rich mousse. Not that this is a nad thing. This is a very chocolatey product and its no surprise to see that crushed cocoa beans are added to the product.
One of the other good things about this product is that there is no aftertaste. After eating it you feel wonderfully refreshed.
I would recommend Swedish Glace to anyone who is vegan or gluten intolerant or lactose intolerant. It tastes fantastic and is a welcome addition to any larder.
