Excellent

ProTastes glorious, not too expensive

ConsNone for me I love this

I will start by saying that, although I am a diabetic, I rarely buy ‘diabetic’ products as I know from the research done by Diabetes UK that they are generally not worth the money. It is usually better to eat the ‘ordinary’ equivalent but in moderation. In fact if you eat some diabetic products...

ConsMisleading for diabetics

Proi can have ice cream

Consnon at all

In my opinion I love the taste and texture of this product and cannot wait to try the new flavours if I can purchase them anywhere near.

“NOT SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS!”

Pronothing. the product is a joke.

Consdangerous for people who fall victim of marketing ...

i am struggling to understand how this product is suitable for diabetics and i am also offended at this companies deceitful marketing ploy. You might as well enjoy any 'normal' ice cream. What a scam. It is far from obvious why this company has not been flagged up about this product. It is...

ProGood to be able to have ice cream when you want to

Consnone

A lovely Ice Cream, full of flavour and well worth buying. Sadly all too rare to find Diabetic food products, since people like Diabetes UK came out with their skewed crackpot views, (produced by non diabetics as usual) that we should eat sugary stuff!! ..Please Franks keep up the good work and...
