“Their iced desserts are as good as it gets in terms of matching good dairy equivalents. Born out of a Friday night dinner table discussion… the creative Russo team’s determination to bring the best possible parev ice cream to the kosher world paid off…

They’re all excellent and will ensure that dessert is not the weakest link in your meaty meal anymore. We admire small ventures like Antonio Russo who take it upon themselves to create something truly good… Grazie Antonio!”

Caribbato:

“Good fresh coffee tasting ice cream… Very creamy texture, very pleasant, a truly quality ice cream. It could be a genuine coffee gelato!”

“Lovely!”

Chocolato:

“Good alternative to ice cream if you like the marriage of choc & orange.”

“Lovely flavours, exceptionally chocolatey, and the orange works well, and this would pass as a dairy ice cream as it is so incredibly creamy.”

Foods Matter magazine – March 2015

“So how do they taste? The texture of all three is very creamy and smooth, and tastes quite rich although with a vegetable base they are not too rich.

“The Vanillato – Madagascan vanilla bean has an excellent vanilla flavour, very pleasant indeed… It is not too sweet and would be good on its own, in a cone or as an accompaniment to a chocolate brownie or sticky toffee pudding…

“The Chocolato – Belgian dark chocolate [has] an almost ‘dairy’ chocolate flavour with tasty chocolate flakes. Just the tiniest hint of orange brings a touch of zestiness and class, but doesn’t overpower…

“The Caribbato – Jamaican blue mountain coffee is very pleasant, but quite mild… The texture is slightly grainy from the coffee grounds which is delicious.”
