The Review You’ve All Been Waiting For…
**Trumpet sounds** COCONUT BLISS!!
I adore absolutely everything about this line of delicious vegan ice cream! Their flavors are fantastic, their ingredients are pure, they’re dairy/soy/and gluten free and hands down they’re the most delicious ice creams I’ve EVER put into my mouth. (EVER!)
There are 14 different flavors for the pints, and 2 fantastic flavors for the bars. I’m one lucky lady, because my local co-op has got both of those fantastic ice cream bar flavors:
Of the bars, my favorite is the Naked Coconut with it’s beautiful pure white color, creamy texture, and flakes of coconut sprinkled in. But if you’re in the mood for a chocolate kick, go for that delicious Dark Chocolate bar. It’s fantastic!
But my favorite flavor to date is definitely the Ginger Cookie Caramel:
This flavor stands out among many as both rich and complex. Maddie and I bought ourselves a pint to amplify our cinematic enjoyment of the latest installment in the Dark Knight Trilogy a couple of weeks ago. Both movie and ice cream where a fantastic combination, but I’ve got to say that this little pint of joy just stole the show for me. Talk about absolute bliss: a superhero movie AND this fantastic treat? Why we were just on cloud nine let me tell ya…
And as if I couldn’t sing this company’s praises enough, their products are also non GMO (a big one for me) and mostly additive free and they even explain a few of the lesser known ingredients on the back of the carton. For example they use a very small amount of guar gum in their ice cream, which is evidently from the guar bean which originates in India. So this thickener is unrefined and virtually unprocessed. I didn’t know that! How fantastic!
The pints run around $6.00 each, (At our co-op they’re $5.99, at Whole Foods they’re $6.39) so they’re a little more expensive than other vegan ice creams but trust me folks it is so worth it. I’ll gladly pay a little bit more for something that’s far more delicious and has far fewer ingredients (not to mention ones that I can actually pronounce) and is also a safe and healthy treat. Oh and did I mention they sweeten the stuff with agave? Goodbye refined sugars, hello bliss.
