I Should Coco

Featured is the Cookie Wookie

Despite not really getting the name, I love these ice creams on offering at South Brisbane’s Grassfed and West End’s bimonthly Brisbane Vegan Markets. (This is not a retail product!)

The flavours are well refined, the ice cream is not overly sweet, and the portions are extremely generous.

There’s really not that much to say except thanks to Jonny who started this in the early 2010s and who has kept it going through thick and thin since, even while starting a new venture- Grassfed.

5/5 – You should Coco.

Raspberry and Coconut Drumstick

Ooh yeah.

Gone are the days when a vegan ice cream was a winner if it didn’t taste like sunscreen. In 2020 we are spoiled for choice – even at the servo, with quality offerings from Magnum, Weis and now Drumstick with three new wafer cones.

So far I’ve had Affogato and Raspberry Coconut and the latter is my favourite. It has a real Cherry Ripe vibe.

The cone and raspberry conserve are tasty, but it gets a 4 because the actual ice cream isn’t as nice as a few others, or as nice as is possible. It might be that it’s too processed, I’m not sure. Whatever it is it’s not too bad, I just don’t think I would enjoy eating a tub of the ice cream by itself, which is something that should be possible. If you don’t think so, try So Good’s tubs from the supermarket, or I Should Coco.

It’s still hard to knock Weis off the top position as the best flavored ice cream producer, and So Good as the best generic flavour producer, but variety is the sugar of life.

Look out for this in Coles and Woolworths, often on special as many vegan products are (go figure), and in servo freezers.

Hello world!

Whirled Peas is a site I was running ages ago, but gradually lost interest in as I ran out of food to talk about.

Well I’ve had a decade to learn more about vegan food and develop new techniques and recipes, so I think it’s time to get this running again.

I’ve got heaps to share so get yourself signed below for alerts, and follow along on Facebook or Twitter.
