A delicious laxative

published

As others have noted, this product is sweetened with sorbitol, an effective laxative but so not useful in more-ish ice cream. Save yourself the grief and embarrassment of a night in the loo. Do NOT give it to lunch or dinner guests unless you have a house full of bathrooms that can be occupied by said guests.

Tastes good but guaranteed major laxative effect

published

It tastes pretty good. But if you eat half a tub you will be in and out of the bathroom for the rest of the day.

I ate a tub and basically moved into the bathroom for the next 6 hrs. But I wasn't certain it was the ice cream until the next time I had it and experienced the exact same thing. It had a more powerful laxative effect then anything I ever eaten. Not exaggerating when I say it is more of a laxative then actual laxatives I have used. Likely due to the polydextrose.

But if you restrict yourself to a couple of scoops you might be good

Purchased at Coles for $7.50.

Sweetened with a known laxative

published

All these reviews mentioning diarrhea (sp) aren't from people who are in any way unusual or delicate. Sorbitol is a well-known, often prescribed, laxative. Also a well-known sweetener. If you're just tasting this no-sugar-added ice cream in a test kitchen you wouldn't notice the effects, I suppose. The kindest thing I can say about this ice cream is it tastes great and it can make you very very sick from overdosing on laxatives. I will be giving it a wide berth, it's not the answer that it appears to be.

Purchased in at Woolworths Physical store for $7.60.

So great!

published

I think most dieters miss ice cream, and that includes me. This tastes like the real thing, and is a great base for adding other things (chopped fruit, sugar free topping, chopped nuts). Tastes great on its own and the texture is perfect. Warning: Don't eat too much at once or you'll spend a night on the toilet! I learnt that the hard way! Lol!

Best for Low Calorie

published

It tastes awesome for how low calorie it is, plus I'm lactose intolerant and yet it doesn't make me nearly as sick as other ice creams that taste the same

Guaranteed diarrhoea- great for a bowel cleanse.

published

Sorbitol plus polydextrose- just four teaspoons of this ice cream and my stomach started churning. Thirty minutes later, I was glued to the toilet bowl, seeing food I had only eaten 45 minutes earlier.

Only eat if you want to cleanse your colon or perhaps you’re constipated.

Purchased in at Piedimontes for $7.99.

Nice icecream, shame there is little fat in it

published

I love the sugar free option, but I want the fat. I eat this icecream and I feel hungry still, I do not get that feeling when I eat full fat icecream. Since the 1950s we have all been told fat is bad for us...never was true. Erythritol is a natural sweetener ie sugar alcohol which is a safe option, would prefer to see that than the ones used here.

great option

published

awesome tasting super creamy option that is much lighter on calories and sugar. yes it has artifcial sweetners, but anyone with any form of a brain knows all research has proven the safety of them and that there is nothing to fear. a whole tub is barely over 700 calories in total

honestly its hard to tell the difference between it and regular icecream. the only issue is the price, its usually $7 a tub at woolies and coles, where as a regular 2L tub of icecream is about $4

Has artificial sweeteners

published

I thought all my prayers had been answered and ice cream that was sugar free! This also means the carbs are very low. Sometimes on Keto or a Low Carb diet you'd like to pig out on some ice cream but rarely do you get that chance. I thought that this ice cream would solve that. Turns out this stuff is pretty terrible and should be ignored IF you don't want to put poisons into your body as it contains artificial sweeteners. Those are Sweeteners 955 (sucralose) & 950 (Acesulphame K )..These should be avoided at all costs if on Keto. It'd be great if Peter's looked into sweetening their stuff with Stevia.

Great low sugar ice-cream

published

Good stuff, I like it because it's low in carbs due to the no added sugar. Tastes pretty close to real ice-cream.

Wonderful!

published

It's really lovely. However it is twice, the price, or thereabouts, and I don't understand why people with different needs are always extra penalised. It's hardly reasonable. I have also noticed that I lost more weight when I elimated it from my diet regime. Don't understand that one, given the nutrition panel. It Peters monitors in here, perhaps they could answer!

Seems they either do not monitor, or don't want to answer the questions.

cant really answer that. there is still some sugar in it. Assuming the person knows how manage their blood sugars and diabetes it should not be an issue. the nutrional information is listed on the back of it. i would suggest having a look at it
