Product Review: Tofutti Ice Creams

I am reviewing two newest Tofutti vegan desserts: Yours Truly Caramel Sundae and Cafè Latte bars.

★ PRODUCT NAME: Tofutti
★ WEBSITE: www.tofutti.com
★ ABOUT: In the 1970s, a Brooklyn restaurant owner, David Mintz was looking for a dairy substitute to use at his kosher restaurant whereas he’d discovered tofu. This concept became “Tofutti”, where there are variety of dairy-free soy-based products such as Better than Cream Cheese & Sour Supreme. Tofutti also carry dairy-free frozen desserts such as Tofutti Cuties, ice cream pints and stick treats. Not all of Tofutti products are vegan such as the Mintz’s Blintzes. All Tofutti products are kosher (KOF-K) certified.

Tofutti Ice Cream “Cafè Latte dipped in Rich Dark Chocolate”

These Tofutti’s Cafè latte bars reminded me of chocolate skinny bars I used to eat when I was a kid, instead, it has coffee/latte flavour. The combination of chocolate and cafè latte was very tasty. At 130 calories per serving, it is a lighter chocolate indulgence.

★ INGREDIENTS: I can’t find the ingredients on their website, however here is the nutrition fact:

Tofutti Ice Cream “Crunchy sugar cones lined with rich chocolate, topped with smooth creamy vanilla and dipped in a thick chocolate coating with chocolate cookie crunchies.”

Tofutti’s Yours Truly Caramel Sundae is one of my favourite vegan desserts (contains soy and wheat). It is very rare to see a vegan sundae cone product in the U.S. (as of Summer 2012). There was another vegan sundae brand that I had in Italy with nuts rather than the yummy chocolate cookie crumbs. The sugar cone was a bit chewy & soft to chew off, but not “crunchy” as described, probably due to being frozen (it’s hard to freeze and de-frost a cone). However, I enjoyed the creamy vanilla dipped in chocolate coating with chocolate cookie crumbs. The best part was getting to the caramel in the centre, and I certainly wish there was more of that luscious caramel.
