When someone offers to send you oodles of ice cream to try, you politely nod your head and say yespleasethankyouverymuch.

At least, that was my response when the oh-so-awesome folks at So Delicious Dairy Free offered to send me some of their new Almond Milk Ice Creams and Almond Milk Beverages. I am already a huge fan of their coconut milk and yogurts, and I have met some of my worst sweet tooth battles head on with their gluten-free Purely Decadent Peanut Butter Zig Zag Ice Cream.

I had a chance to try five of the new flavors: Butter Pecan, Chocolate, Vanilla, Cherry Amaretto and Mocha Almond Fudge (all gluten-, soy- and dairy-free).

They are all really good and it’s tough to pick a favorite, so I am going to limit it down to two: Chocolate for nights when I feel like a classic ice cream choice and Butter Pecan for when I feel like mixing things up a bit. There is also a Mint Chip flavor (gluten-, soy- and dairy-free) that I haven’t had a chance to try yet, but I can’t wait to scoop it up once I spot it in stores!

I also had a chance to try their Mocha Almond Fudge and Vanilla ice cream bars (again, both gluten-, soy- and dairy-free). Both are delicious, but the Mocha Almond Fudge is to-die-for. The flavor is great and I love the crunchy almonds that are mixed into the chocolate coating. I may or may not have eaten two in one sitting. Maybe.

Lastly, but definitely not least, I gave their new Almond Plus™ Almond Milk Beverages a tasting. Both were awesome in my regular Green Monsters, and I had plenty of the original flavor mixed with some of my granola in the morning. The bonus with this almond milk? It has FIVE TIMES the protein of other almond milk beverages. (One more nod to vegans everywhere who consistently field the question: But where do you get your protein?)

One of the things I love about this company is that they really try to make life a little easier for those of us who are looking for specific ingredients (or a lack thereof) in our products. Each one of the products on their Website has a full nutritional analysis and a list of common allergens (and whether or not they include them). How nice is that?

 GOOD NEWS FOR YOU: All of these products will be in your local stores this month! Get your coupons here, and try them for yourself!
