... You can buy those Frubes things and freeze them but the tub of plain FF I've got says it's not suitable for home freezing.

I've just pureed up some bananas, apple juice and a dollop of FF to make ice lollies - am I going to poison my children?

Doubt it. Just don't add arsenic to them. An all too common mistake in lolly ice production.

Doubt it Soupy - might not freeze brilliantly though, but def worth a try.
pmsl hm!

Have you checked the WHO webpage?

Does anyone have a serious answer?

Why can you freeze the Frubes FFrais but not ordinary stuff?

Xena Mon 11-Jul-05 12:14:11

have you checked the differences between their ingriedents sp?

Maybe the container is more fragile?

Janh Mon 11-Jul-05 12:16:21

Ohhhh, it's plain, so it has no sugar - frubes are madly processed (yum), plain is probably likely to separate or something.

Your concoction should freeze fine. Trust me, I'm a....

Yes JanH is probably right it might not have the right room to freeze IYKWIM in a pot!

Janh Mon 11-Jul-05 12:19:37

Or it could be the container!

I'm just worried because I once made ice cream with FFRais and was horribly ill. I assumed it was due to contamination but then was concerend having seen "do not freeze" on the tub.

Will try them out on DH first


As an aside, Tescos milk in plastic bottles says that it's freezable.

Or they forgot to print "suitable for home freezing" on the packaging. Must say, I'm pretty much happy to freeze anything I'm not told not to.

pmsl @ "Cheese FAQs"!

One of the Danone brands available in Ireland comes with free lolly sticks in the summer for freezing set into the tubs. It is the pink tubs, not the blue and white striped if that helps.

Sorry Soupy

Janh Mon 11-Jul-05 14:34:20

naughty hunker

hunkermunker Mon 11-Jul-05 14:37:49

I wasn't wrong though. Just a trifle whimsical.

Don't freeze trifle, btw. Or is that because I always make it with arsenic? Oh, the pitfalls of puddings!

Janh Mon 11-Jul-05 16:30:24

You can freeze whimsical trifle, of course.

hunkermunker Mon 11-Jul-05 16:46:19

Of course! It's actually illegal NOT to freeze it, Jan.
