Review For So Delicious Coconut Ice Cream

Imagine my surprise when I found So Delicious Coconut Milk ice cream… not just coconut ice cream but ice cream made with coconut milk. With so many folks avoiding dairy this is a great idea. I LOVE ice cream, so I had to try it. The local Walmart had three flavors available, Vanilla, Chocolate and Mint Chip. We got the Mint Chip and the Chocolate to try.

I liked the chocolate, it had a nice creamy texture the only drawback in a way is the coconut taste does come through (not a bad thing) with this flavor. I would suspect that a little homemade chocolate syrup drizzled over the top would take that hint away and well, you can never have too much chocolate.

The Mint Chip however was fantastic… I LOVED it.  This is not usually my favorite flavor but I am SOLD on this one. The texture again was creamy with these great dark chocolate flakes. This is a must try!  Paul was a fan of both flavors but liked the mint chip just a “teeny bit” more than the chocolate (really I think he was hard pressed to even choose).

I should also report that the other day when we tried the So Delicious Coconut Yogurt, Paul made the switch and we had to make another run to Marlene’s to pick more up for the week.

I do regret not grabbing the So Delicious Vanilla now. I did see some mini ice cream novelties at Marlene’s when we were there, but I failed to get those either because we were going to be stopping at another store before heading home. Of course now I think we could have just eaten tham all in the car right?

As I was writing this I thought I would search for the So Delicious product website and see who all carries this… holy cow they have a TON of ice cream flavors. This is great news for us because ice cream is a food group all its own and I am not giving it up. Thankfully I won’t even have to try.

    I LOVE So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice Cream! The Mint Chip is one of my favorite flavors, too! Wait until you taste the Pomegranate Chip. It’s sublime.
