So Delicious Dairy Free Cashewmilk Frozen Dessert Bars

It feels a little strange to write a post about an ice cream treat in November. It has been in the 50’s and 60’s where I live and that is not exactly ice cream weather. I think true ice cream lovers do not care about the temperature to enjoy a cold treat though. A hot beverage afterward or a blanket can help warm up. As the holidays approach your family might enjoy ice cream with dessert and I wanted to share a favorite in my household. We find cashewmilk to be both rich and decadent and double chocolate bars do not disappoint. I tend to only buy them on sale as a treat, but they are a favorite!

box of 4 barsProduct: Cashewmilk Double Chocolate Delight by So Delicious Dairy Free

Overall Grade: A+

Pros:

  • Delicious!! As I said above, this bar is both rich and decadent with the chocolate coating and chocolate ice cream inside.
  • I find So Delicious cashewmilk to be very creamy and similar to what I remember of diary milk ice cream.
  • These beauties are easy to find in regular and health food grocery stores near me.
  • I trust this brand as I have been buying the products for years. They clearly label allergens and most, if not all, of their products are good gluten free.
  • This product is free of dairy, gluten, peanut, and soy.
  • They have several delicious flavors. Including one that has vegan caramel!!! That is also a favorite in our home.

Cons:

  • They are pricy, unless on sale. I have generally seen them for $5.99 for a box of 4. That is about $1.50 a bar. These are only a treat for us, not a staple.
  • With only 4 in a box, they are expensive to share. With a family of three, only one of us can have two!

I Scream. You Scream.

When it comes to ice cream, I am my mother’s daughter.  It doesn’t matter the weather or the time of day.  So, despite the fact that fall is upon us, I picked up a box of the Coconut Bliss Salted Caramel in Chocolate bars.

At 5.99 for three, they’re a bit spendy. But, Coconut Bliss has a strong enough rep with me that it didn’t feel like too much of a risk. They did not disappoint:  Smooth. Creamy. Caramelly (with no sticky caramel sauce). Just enough salt to keep it from being coverly sweet. (This is where I depart ways with my mother. She thinks there is no such thing as too sweet).  And how they do all this without a strong coconut flavor is beyond me.

 

The chocolate tastes pretty much like every chocolate covered bar or cone you’ve ever had.  It’s a tiny bit melty from the coconut oil.  So, I got a little smear on my hands, but if you have the foresight to hold it in a napkin, you’re good. They make a great afternoon snack.

I may or may not have even eaten one with breakfast.

If you’re a summer-only ice cream eater, file this review away for June because you’re not going to want to miss these.  But, if you’re an all-year ice cream eater, you’re not going to want to wait that long.
