Tofutti Cuties and Tofutti Premium Frozen Dessert

Good morning! I was recently given the opportunity to taste a few frozen desserts from the Tofutti Company. Of the many dairy free, vegan and Kosher offerings I chose the  Tofutti Cuties and Tofutti Premium Frozen Dessert in Almond Bark

In all honesty I was prepared to dislike these products for many reasons, first and foremost because they contained soy. The only other time I had tried tofu was about 15 years ago and some friends were experimenting, lets just say the taste put me off for the last 15 years. 

I was not only pleasantly surprised by the taste and texture of both the Tofutti Cuties and the Tofutti Frozen Dessert I was blown away by the taste. 

The Cutties reminded me of long ago days waiting for the ice cream man to come around the neighborhood so that I could get my favorite novelty, an ice cream sandwich. The chocolate Cutties are rich, creamy and delicious! You cannot tell that they are not real ice cream or in fact are completely dairy free. 

These "ice cream" sandwiches come in several flavors: Cookies ‘N Cream, Vanilla, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Key Lime, Wild Berry, Coffee Break, Strawberry Wave, and Very Vanilla and of course the selection will vary by store. 

I also sampled the Tofutti Vanilla Almond Bark Premium Frozen Dessert and once again I was in love. It is creamy and rich, it has the texture of ice cream and the crunch chocolate covered almonds which melt in your mouth. The almond flavor is very distinct and reminded me of a piece of delicious marzipan. 

The Premium Frozen Dessert comes in several of your favorite traditional flavors, like Chocolate, Better Pecan, Vanilla, Vanilla Fudge, Wild Berry and of course the Vanilla Almond Bark. 

If you are a vegan or lactose intolerant than perhaps these tasty treats might be an option for you. 

Or if you want to prolong the taste of summer than these might be the perfect dessert, and the good news is that you can get them at most grocery stores all year long!

My daughters are vegetarians so I am going to send your post to them. They love Tofu, me, not so much. However since they are chocolate, I might try one.
