GREAT TASTE AWARDS 2014

REACTION TO FROZEN GOODNESS

The judges are wowed by this. There is NO cream in this yet it tastes wonderfully creamy and smooth. Beautifully made – you can taste the ‘love’ in this. There are a lot of grins on the judges’ faces – fabulous.

AT OUR CORE

Taste

We are determined not only to deliver the purest and most nutritious alternative to dairy ice cream, but importantly one that is also creamy, indulgent, and tastes incredibly good. This is what we will always strive to do.

Health

‘Free-from’ products often contain artificial and unhealthy ingredients that we feel are unnecessary and compromise their overall integrity. We simply use a few natural, highly nutritious ingredients that also happen to be ‘free from’ dairy, and nothing else. No gums, stabalizers, preservatives or additives. Nothing but goodness.

Ireland

We are hugely proud of our Irish roots and fully committed to ensuring that all of our products are handmade in Ireland. Due to the nature of our product, we can not source all of our raw ingredients from Ireland but we strive to use local produce wherever possible.

THE TEAM

Rachel and Brian

owners

We are two Dublin born, self confessed food geeks. After spending time living in New York working in Finance and Advertising respectively, we took a leap of faith and moved to Italy to work in a restaurant and immerse ourselves in our true passion. Upon returning home, we were determined to start a food business together. Importantly, we wanted to bring our love of tasty, delicious food together with our other interest in health and nutrition.

The outcome of this is Nobó.

1.If it's not ice cream, then what is it?

We like to call it Frozen Goodness. It’s an ice cream alternative that has a similar texture and feel to ice cream but is made from just a few natural dairy free ingredients; coconut milk, avocado, water and sweetened with honey. Some of our customers even include Frozen Goodness in their breakfast smoothies due to its nutritional profile. In addition, our products do not include any preservatives gums, stabilizers etc.

2.Where can I purchase Frozen Goodness?

Nobó is now available nationwide from all SuperValu stores. Our Frozen Goodness is also available from most good health stores and other Independent speciality food shops around the country. If you have a shop and would like to stock nobó or want to see us for sale in your local shop, please get in touch. We’re excited about the next step in the nobó journey!

3.Why do you use coconut milk, isn't it high in fat?

We are big fans of the humble coconut! Not only does it taste delicious but coconut milk contains essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that supply lots of benefits to the body. About a third of coconut flesh is fat (and about 92% of this fat is technically classified as saturated) but it is mostly made up of short and medium-chain fatty acids that are both immediately used for energy, so they are not stored easily as adipose tissue (body fat) like long-chain fatty acids found in dairy milk.

4.What does nobó mean? How did you come up with the name?

On a long drive to Connemara we started thinking up names for our new business. We wanted something that communicated a little about what we do and also the fact that we are an Irish company. Surrounded by cows along our journey we suddenly thought – how about NoBó? Bó is cow in Irish. Nobó = no cow = dairy-free.
