Jigsaw AKA Goodberries Belconnen CLOSED DOWN

By bonfire - 2 November 2005 28

It is my melancholy duty to inform you all that Belco Goodberries is alas no more.

The place is closed, chairs and tables up, no staff, and a sign on the door.

Where do i get my frozen custard fix now ?

What’s Your opinion?

is it true that the belconnen jigsaw has changed hands and will become a rubees store?

I can assure you, as one of the owners of the Woden store, that we’re not selling ice cream. Last time I checked, Belconnen were using the exact same mix that we are, and it is very much frozen custard. I’d be happy to sit a tub of ice cream next to a tub of our frozen custard any day so that you may see how much better frozen custard (sold at Jigsaw, and yes, at Rubees too) tastes.

There is a small difference in the way that Rubees and Jigsaw prepares their concretes. Rubees mix theirs more after adding flavours, which creates a ‘slushier’ concrete – not necessarily a bad thing, depending on your taste. Jigsaw concretes are more like the old style Goodberry’s in that they are thicker in texture.

Cameron I have been to Belco Jigsaw and Dickson Rubees and they are nothing alike. Jigsaw seems to be selling Ice cream while Rubees seems to have old school frozen Custard, the only similarity I see is that everyone is still selling concretes. And I saw the Goodberry’s guys off the ads there behind the counter so I’m guessing that it’s the closest thing to Goodberry’s I’m gettin.

update: I went to goodberries Dickson on friday night, as I was in the area.

verdict: Tastes just like home-made icecream mix (I had the vanilla base)

Triple bottom line: I would take other peoples children there for a sugar hit in preperation for giving them back.

its as if its bizarreness is its attraction.

bonfire, they should put you in the television commercial advertising goodberries.

I’m going to pop in (I’m a goodberries virgin) based completely off your summarisation there.

My image is of course of norman gump walking into a 50’s style diner, and melodromatically ticking off a bizarre checklist of requirements in order to meet his equally bizarre sense of tastes, but that’s what I want to go check out.
