Having recently had to change my diet due to lactose and gluten concerns I have obviously found myself looking for alternatives. My favourite potato treat is homemade dauphinoise potatoes - I was thrilled to find an alternative to single cream that suited my new diet requirements and even more thrilled it was a perfect substitute. My potatoes taste perfectly the same with this, having a great consistency very similar to that of single cream. I couldn't comment on eating this product alone on a pudding for example but using it in cooking alongside other ingredients and vegan cheese etc I was pleasantly surprised and will buy this again the whole family enjoyed it which saves me making two different versions of the same thing!
Not Environmentally Friendly
Very disappointed that this new product is not recycled plastic. Shameful. The cream is quite nice but won't buy again because of the recycling. Sort this out, please.
Not to my taste
There was an oil slick on the top, terrible taste. I will stick to the original in future.
This is grey and tasteless, not creamy at all.
This is a very poor substitute for single cream. I used to buy elmlea single and, now that it is not available on this site i tried the 'plant' elmlea. It was GREY and unappealing and tasted very bland and not creamy at all. BRING BACK ELMLEA SINGLE
The colour was grey and it looked terrible, the taste was non to good either. Would never buy again. I binned the lot single and double
I love this and now buy it regularly. I particularly enjoy it on porridge, but also good for soups etc. I like the Plant Double cream too.
The colour is a bit off putting at first but the taste really is great. I will always be using this as an alternative to cream from now on.
Tastes great, couldn’t tell the difference and was
Tastes great, couldn’t tell the difference and was great for cooking with which is good as my daughter can’t eat dairy. The colour is a little grey but it’s not the real thing so thats to be expected !! Great substitute at last, thanks Elmlea
Disgusting. Complete failiure.
This does NOTsubstitute for elmlea single ORcream. We use single for tea in our house. This separates and denatures in hot drinks, does not taste or feel like cream, and is a disgusting shade of grey. Back to the drawing board elmlea! Tesco, please return to stocking the normal single, this stuff is disgusting.
Unless you are desperate, don’t buy this. It looks so grey and unappetising. I thought it had gone off!
