Years later, I met Z, and he always had Tofutti Cuties (ice cream sandwiches) in his freezer. One day, I tried one - and it was actually really good. Fast forward a few years, and I get an email from Tofutti asking me if I'd like to sample some of their dairy-free desserts to help celebrate their 30th anniversary. I said yes, and was pretty impressed with what I tried. Oh, how times have changed.
Tofutti's products are all 100% dairy-free, and the ones I sampled taste nothing like tofu (I promise). First up was the Vanilla Almond Bark "ice cream," which was super creamy and smooth, and I loved the generous amount of crunchy bark throughout.
The second product I tried were the Yours Truly Ice Cream Cones in vanilla.
These are dangerous. The crunchy sugar cone mixed with the rich chocolate and super creamy vanilla "ice cream" was such a delightful combination - even on a colder fall day.
We also received a box of the Chocolate Covered Flowers bars, but I haven't tried one of those yet. Z has, however, and is a big fan.
My only gripe with Tofutti products: the ingredients. They can be a bit scary/illegible. There are plenty of local companies that make dairy-free desserts with real ingredients. However, I still think Tofutti's products are a good option for those who have limited access to dairy-free desserts. It's amazing how creamy the "ice cream" is!
These products were complimentary, but all opinions are my own.
