Of course there is one big difference. This is made of oats, which means it is made from something that grows beautifully right out of the soil. Now over to the technical features section: whip it up to make it fluffy then maybe pour it straight onto some berries from your garden or that apple pie you were thinking about making.
We are pleased to let you know that we recently* replaced palm oil in our recipe with a blend of coconut and rapeseed oils. So to get the most out of our vanilla custard, you need to whip it real good before serving. Yes, this new version is less thick when served directly from the carton. But with a good whipping, this one will fluff up in ways the old one never could, resulting in the kind of vanilla custard you want to spend time reading about on the internet. However, a more satisfying plan may be to drop your smartphone, turn off your computer, jump on your segway and get to the store to give it a try. You may be pleasantly surprised.
* What we mean by "recently" may vary a little or a lot, depending on when you are reading this webpage since the internet isn’t bound by the rules of time and space, or something like that.
WHAT MIGHT BE LESS AMAZING
So we let some sugar and extra flavouring sneak into this product. Okay they didn’t sneak in there, we put them there and we did so because we think this product should be so good that your grandmother would rather serve this to her guests than the custard she has been serving for 60 years, even if they were royal or diplomatic guests and were to stop by for a slice of apple pie after a hard day at work.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
Whip it up for amazing fluff. Perfect for fresh fruit or homemade pies or use as an ingredient in your own ice-cream. No milk, soy, rice, nuts or almonds. If we win the test taste, then high-fives all around. If you like this product come by the office for a high-five.

tastes great but as runny as water as soon as you heat it up
didnt thicken up
Too thin and so we threw it away
Thin but still enjoyable
Like most of the other reviewers I was surprised how thin this was straight out of the carton but it was lovely with raspberry jelly. I normally buy Alpro which has the conventional consistency of a thick custard, but if you're not too worried about your custard rheology then this makes a light and sweet change with a vanilla taste. And you can always whisk it up ... which I haven't bothered to do yet.
Avoid! Just look at the awful ingredients!
Why is there Rapeseed oil in this? So many people are intolerant or allergic to Rapeseed oil. It might save a few calories but at such a price!
My family fight over this..
We just use cold like pouring cream. My husband and kids fight over it.. so I guess a slightly larger carton would be a bonus.
