Review: Alpro Vanilla Ice Cream

SUITABLE FOR DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE AND VEGAN DIETS

You are about to see a review of the Alpro Vanilla Ice Cream.

QUICK PROS & CONS (FOR THOSE OF YOU IN A RUSH)

+ Tastes just as good as dairy ice cream

+ Just the right amount – not too much to over-indulge (and get belly ache) but enough to share (if you have to..)

+ Dairy Free, Gluten Free & Vegan Friendly – helping those with dietary preferences or needs to still enjoy ice cream (and not miss out)

+ Does not contain palm oil, but the Hazelnut Chocolate one does (read more: www.rspo.org)

-/+ The ice cream seemed to melt quite quickly, despite being indoors. I like slightly melted ice cream, so this wasn’t a problem for me; but it may bother other people.

 Quite expensive compared to dairy ice creams (my advice: only buy when on offer, unless desperate)

 The packaging does not appear to be recyclable. It think it is a mixture of plastic and card. This seems to be a problem with most ice creams I have come across unfortunately.


REASON FOR BUYING

I wanted to try dairy free ice cream as I’m trying to avoid dairy where possible (not able to cut out cheese yet – if you know any good DF cheeses, let me know in the comments below). I had already tried and loved the Hazelnut Chocolate one by Alpro (my review here) and wanted to try out a different flavour by Alpro, to see if I would love that too.

When I got to Tesco, the only other flavour available was the Vanilla (and I’m not a fan of Coconut anyway, so that one seemed doomed to receive a negative review from me). Thus, I got the Vanilla one. Fortunately, the price had dropped to £2.75 (whereas before I needed a £1 off coupon from the Tesco April 2018 Magazine in order for it to be £2.75), making this a price reasonable in my books (and a relief not to need a coupon).


APPEARANCE

The packaging is nice, but then again I like most of Alpro’s packaging. Not too in your face. I find the colour green very relaxing and also makes be believe I am eating something that is ‘healthy’ or good for me.. I loved the beautifully designed packaging. It was very aesthetically pleasing; even for packaging.

No complaints with how the ice cream itself looked either. Looked just as I expected it to with tiny dark dots hinting the presence of vanilla.


PRICE

At the time I bought it, it was £2.75. I think that I wouldn’t have bought this ice cream if it had been more than £3, as I think that would be a rip off for the amount of ice cream. I think that £2.75 is a great price if you adore vanilla flavoured ice cream; as this is a very good dairy free alternative.


TASTE

It was very smooth in texture. Tasted just like dairy ice cream, if not better! The consistency and texture were just like any other ice cream I have eaten. I enjoy ice cream when it is just starting to melt, so I liked the fact that this ice cream started to melt from the outside-in.

Even though I enjoyed this ice cream and would opt for this dairy free vanilla ice cream over a dairy vanilla ice cream; I don’t think I would buy this again. The reason is because the Hazelnut Chocolate one is so much better in my opinion (being a chocaholic: chocolate > vanilla).

For someone who loves vanilla much more than chocolate, I think they would much prefer this Vanilla ice cream to the Hazelnut Chocolate one. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed eating it; it just wasn’t as moreish for me as the Hazelnut Chocolate one, since I find vanilla less flavoursome and too plain for my liking.

I didn’t manage to eat it all in one go (almost), but I suppose that means my waistline is smiling.. (as a comparison I managed to eat all of the Hazelnut Chocolate in one sitting)

INGREDIENTS

Water, Soluble gluco fibre, Sugar, Hulled SOYA beans (6.1%), Vegetable fats (Rapeseed, Shea), Fructose-glucose syrup, Emulsifier (Mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids), Vanilla extract (0.4%), Stabilisers (Locust bean gum, Guar gum), Sea salt, Vanilla seeds

May contain traces of nuts (no peanuts). Contains soya. Free from dairy and gluten.

Of course, if you are allergic to any of these ingredients, you should not buy this product. 


FINAL WORDS

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a delicious Vanilla flavour dairy free ice cream that tastes just like Vanilla dairy ice cream. Where possible I would advise you to buy it when it is on offer, unless you are desperate to try it out (e.g. hot weather) as I hate spending more than I need to. I won’t be buying this again for myself, as I preferred the Hazelnut Chocolate one so much more; but I would consider buying it as a treat for a friend if I knew their favourite ice cream flavour was Vanilla as I am convinced they would love it.

You can buy this from Tesco (£2.75), Waitrose (£2.81), Asda (£3.50), Sainsburys (£3.50), Morrisons (£3.50) and Ocado (online supermarket – £2.75).

I have also tried the Hazelnut Chocolate one. If you would like to see what I thought of that one in comparison, click here to read my review.
