Comparison – Ice Cream

I was going to start this post with “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream” & “I’ve never been an ice cream person…” but I realized that I have two other ice cream posts (here and here) and I started both of those posts with the preceding phrases.  At least I’m consistent in my thoughts…  🙂

With this post I am comparing some of the non-dairy ice cream brands that I have tried.

So Delicious

This brand is one of my favorites.  I much prefer the coconut or almond milk over the cashew milk ice creams, but that is only due to the cashew milk ice creams are much softer – more like soft serve than the coconut or almond milk based ice creams.  My favorite flavors are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Mint Chip, Cookies & Cream & anything with caramel and/or coffee!  They also offer ice cream sandwiches and ice cream bars – all of the above makes it into my shopping cart regularly!  The ice cream sandwiches don’t last very long – I love them & usually eat them first.

 

Ben & Jerry’s

Yes, B&J’s now offers a line of dairy free ice cream – if you’ve been keeping up with my Facebook page (here) or Instagram (here), you’ve most likely seen my posts on these.  So far, I’ve only had the pleasure of trying two flavors – Chunky Monkey (I’m bananas for this one…) & Coffee Caramel Fudge.  I only had one problem with this brand….I ran out too soon, especially the Coffee Caramel Fudge!  These were so delicious.  Keep watch on Facebook & Instagram to see what other flavors I try next!

 

Talenti

With this brand comes a warning – not all their flavors are dairy free.  Actually most are not – just the sorbettos – the only flavor I’ve tried is Roman Raspberry (Oh, my YUM!), other flavors they have that I want to try are Mango & Blood Orange.

 

Almond Dream

This was the first dairy-free ice cream I found & tried…it kept me feeling “normal” during the first few months of my transition to dairy-free.  I usually had the vanilla or cappuccino swirl.  They have other flavors – mint chip, salted caramel (I’m drooling), butter pecan, vanilla fudge swirl, praline crunch & strawberry.  There are probably more, but these are the ones I want to find!  This brand also has ice cream sandwiches too, but I’ve not tried them yet.

 

So many brands & so many flavors to try, so little time!
