Anyone tried it? It stands for Kosher, Organic, Vegan. It's on sale at Whole Foods, pretty expensive I'd love to hear an opinion or two before investing.

    It's cocnut-milk based like So Delicious (also kosher). Clearly "gelato" as a product description is not regulated like "ice cream" because whatever this is it isn't gelato.

      Is that the actual brand name? I've never seen anything called that.

      And I'm curious . . . how much is it, that you use the word "investing"? I know Whole Foods is generally expensive, but is it really so expensive that the extra dollar or two is a "make or break"?

        Husband and I were once shopping at WF. I refused to buy a $12 pint of ice cream. This was a while ago and I totally forgot the name. But yes, shopping there can be an investment!

          I've seen $13 pints at the Whole Foods near me, so I could see that being called a relative investment. There were some reports on Kosherfest 2012 in blogs that gave good reviews.

            4Wow; I was thinking $6 or $7. I wouldn't pay that much (the $12 or $13, that is), even though I guess I wind up paying more for dessert at restaurants. Just paid $6 and $12 for desserts at Turnpike Cafe here in Queens . . . not even a fancy, expensive place. It's all situational, I guess.
