    1. Can also be purchased at the Big Carrot, and (I believe) Fresh From the Farm, for us East Enders.

          Really? The Big Carrot? As in the cafe, or the supermarket? Single serving or in a tub?

          1. re: thenurse

            The supermarket. Tubs. Same at Fresh From the Farm. But I seem to recall the tubs were near $10 at the Carrot, and they are more like $7-8 at the Farm. Call first, it was a while ago that I saw them at the Carrot (but saw them at the Farm just last week).

              leaving work now to go buy some... have been waiting for this miracle for a few years now!

                Well, the Big Carrot has had it for at least a year and a half now. Although, I don't know why you'd want the stuff. Its terrible. I've tried it on several occasions and it has been consistently grainy and the flavours underpowered and lackluster.

            2. re: thenurse

              I bought a container (maybe 500 mL) of vanilla today at the Big Carrot for $7, and while it was okay, it wasn't great: I found that it wasn't particularly creamy and something in the taste was lacking.

            3. re: julesrules

              i'll also add in fresh & wild at king/spadina.

            4. Thanks everyone for the updates! I've been mourning their disappearance from Kensington for awhile now, and I was wondering how on earth I would ever find a replacement for the Chocolate DooDah ice cream that won my heart and tastebuds. I'm relieved that now I don't have to. I can feel my heart mending already. : )

              1. I tried the ginger and chocolate. But went with the milk chocolate. It was excellent! Like eating a chocolate bar.

                1. The cardamom and apple ice cream was great as was the green tea and raspberry... at least back in the kensington market days. Some flavors are hard on the palette and the stomach... to avoid is anything with pepper or cayenne (and I love spicy).

                  Looking forward to swinging by for a scoop!
