Following the very sad demise & subsequent disappearance of Ambrosia Sago, I was forced to turn to the next best thing - Ambrosia Tapioca. Both products are both creamy puddings, which resemble frog-spawn, so how would Tapioca perform versus it's old rival, Sago? Ambrosia Tapioca is made of full cream milk, skimmed milk, & whey, all combined to create a thick creamy dessert with some tapioca thrown in for good measure. The tapioca looks like small, transparent 'globby' balls suspended in the cream (hence it looking like frog spawn!). Compared to Sago, the tapioca balls are smaller & firmer, & in my opinion not nearly as nice. The product ... Read the complete review

I love Tapioca, although i do not know when this change happened - I hated it when we were forced to eat it at Girl Guide Camp.

I love it! My local market has a stall selling 4 tins for a pound, the 396g orange tins marked 79p! It is low fat, 1.7% and 1% saturated so low! High in calcium too and like frog spawn I agree!

Like Marmite, Tapioca is one of those foods that tend to provoke strong reactions from most people, but clearly the reactions are not all negative, otherwise Ambrosia would long ago have ceased making Creamed Tapioca. On the contrary, I love this stuff! It's comfort food for me. A lovely combination of creamy sweetened milk and the little jelly-like transparent balls (all the kids at my Junior school named tapioca "frog spawn", and it does have that sticky consistency! Eating it is like a trip back in time to my school days...). My four year old daughter loves it too, but my husband finds it repellent. You can buy a large (425 gram) ... Read the complete review
