Throwback from the 70s?

I can't imagine anyone buying this utter rubbish unless by mistake thinking it's cream. It isn't, it isn't anywhere near cream and is incredibly unhealthy - oil mixed with buttermilk? Are you kidding? Ocado - get this horror story off your shelves!

I'd rather not have cream

This really isn't cream, or anywhere like it. It left a rather unpleasant taste in the mouth and made me wish I'd not ruined an otherwise good pudding with it. Never again.

Yucky cream alternative

This is just disgusting. My husband bought this by mistake to have with our mince pies for Christmas -- big mistake. It tastes artificial and is actually very unhealthy. Avoid at all costs. Why have a cream alternative when there is real cream?
