So Delicious

So DeliciousWe all scream for ice cream — even those of us who can’t tolerate milk, gluten or other food allergens.

That’s why So Delicious has spent the last 25 years making creamy, non-dairy creations everyone can enjoy, including coconut milk, soymilk and almondmilk frozen desserts, cultured products and beverages.

All So Delicious products are 100% plant based and vegan, ranging from coffee creamer to Greek-style yogurt to what some dedicated fans consider their crowning achievement: gluten-free cookie dough ice cream!

Many of these dairy-free delights are made with organic ingredients, and all are Non-GMO Project verified and made without artificial sweeteners or hydrogenated oils.

For gluten-free products, So Delicious works with GFCO (Gluten-Free Certification Organization) to provide third-party certification. They also test for common allergens and disclose detailed allergen information for each product so consumers can make informed choices.

So Delicious

“The success of our products is as much about what they don’t contain as what they do contain,” says So Delicious President John Tucker. “We employ the most stringent testing, production and packaging methods to ensure the utmost quality.”

Besides their dedication to deliciousness for all, the company has demonstrated a strong commitment to the environment, from using 100% recycled paperboard cartons for their frozen dessert bars and sandwiches to reducing water usage and restoring millions of gallons of water to the Middle Deschutes River in Oregon, where the company is based. Recently So Delicious also partnered with The Brees Dream Foundation to help raise funds for charitable programs that improve lives in the New Orleans area.

So Delicious“Our mission is to bring joy to dairy-free lives,” says So Delicious President John Tucker. What sweeter way to accomplish that than a So Delicious frozen dessert?

My daughter loves yogurt and ice cream, really loves it. So imagine my heartbreak when she was recently diagnosed with autism and a gluten free casein free diet was recommended . To tell my 4 year old you can't have yogurt anymore was devastating. Then we found so delicious products! I use everything! I use the coffee creamer, Unsweetened coconut milk for smoothies, coconut kefir, ice cream sandwiches, ice cream bars, ice cream and Yogurt!!! It has been our families lifesaver in a difficult dietary transition. Thank you

Tracey Gorham says …

I'd indulge in any of the SO Delicious Coconut Milk frozen treats, but my favorite has to be the Mini's Organic fudge bars! Yum!!

Jeanne Jacobs says …

Well ... I adore all the SoDelicious frozen tests but my splurge are the mocha almond fudge Mini bars. You simply cannot have just one!!

Kim says …

I love almost any vegan dessert, but So Delicious ice cream is my favorite store-bought treat. For daily dairy-free indulgence it's almond milk, especially in an iced coffee in warm weather.

Ashley Neifert says …

My kids are both sensitive to dairy and soy so they love So Delicious frozen dessert.

Nathan Ebenroth says …

My favorite non-dairy indulgence is the So Delicious Coconut Milk CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL. Thank you So Delicious for demonstrating how good dairy free can be!

Tamara Case says …

It is hard to pick a favorite, I love all the frozen desserts. You can't go wrong with chocolate. I also drink the sugar free almond milk every day. It's a must. I have always been allergic to milk and was thankful when I found So Delicious.

Misty Beasley says …

I love SO DELICIOUS!!! I am hooked on SO DELICIOUS Chocolate coconut milk frozen sweets! I also love the SO DELICIOUS mini vanilla sandwiches.. Yummy!!

Liza Johnson says …

Everything from So Delicious is... well so delicious! I love their coconut milks for everything I would use regular milk for and the ice creams are awesome for a little indulgence. They keep my tummy and my consciousness happy!

Emily Pritchett says …

After being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, I was pretty bummed about having to give up dairy. Luckily, I discovered So Delicious products. My absolute favorite is Cookies'N'Cream Coconut milk ice cream. It's like being on a little tropical vacation and I don't miss regular ice cream at all!!

Hannah S says …

I love the coconut milk chocolate ice cream pictured above as a treat, but on a daily basis, I enjoy vanilla coconut creamer in my coffee and can't live without it!

sarah D. says …

I love so delicious cookie dough coconut milk ice cream! So nom.

Heather Peterson says …

So Delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Coconut Milk Ice Cream is my favorite! I love trying new flavors all the time. And the almond milk ice cream is really good too! I also really enjoy the coconut milk yogurt! And I recently tried the new unsweetened vanilla coconut milk! Yum!!

Noelle MN says …

I love toasting coconut flakes and putting them on top of So Delicious Chocolate ice cream!

sheila kalajdzic says …

My favorite So Delicious indulgence would have to be the French vanilla coconut creamer. I enjoy it every morning in my coffee...whether it's iced coffee in warm weather or a warm cup of Joe on chilly days. In addition, I use the French vanilla coconut creamer whenever I make white Russians or pina coladas. It makes these cocktails go from ordinary to extraordinary. I also add the creamer to my smoothies, as well as to truffles, rice pudding, cakes, and other desserts. I love the taste of So Delicious and buy many of this company's products at your store. They make awesome products! :)

Summer says …

I love So Delicious Coconut Milk, Vanilla flavored. I think it's the closest thing out there to milk-based ice creams. It got my omnivore boyfriend to try non-dairy ice cream! He loves vanilla, and the specks of vanilla bean in there really caught his attention. We buy this stuff by the truck-full! We eat it plain, on berry cobblers, and in shakes. This is the ice cream that I recommend to all my dairy-loving friends. It's so good that it speaks for itself!

Sandra Lavigne says …

I love the ice creams. I almost always have some in the freezer during the summer. Any that I've tried have been great. We don't seem to get the full range of products in stores around here so any time I come across a flavour I haven't tried yet I jump on it and am never disappointed.

Katherine says …

As some who can't tolerate grains, dairy, or soy, I love that So Delicious offers so many delightful choices for those of us who are limited in our choices. And those choices are so delicious! My absolute favorite non-dairy indulgence is So Delicious pomegranate chip. It makes my tastebuds dance!

Dana Gilliam says …

I love the No Sugar Added Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Ice Cream! I plan to spend a lot of time with that this summer. :-)

Kim says …

I have recently discovered chocolate covered strawberry milkshake! So Delicious Chocolate Ice cream with So Delicious Coconut milk and the add frozen strawberries to taste! It is a little taste of heaven! :)

Joan Coloma says …

Since I am vegan and my husband is lactose intolerant we love to eat your ice cream. It's perfect for us! Our favorite flavor is Soy Delicious Mocha Fudge, yum. :)

Catherine Speed says …

I ate So Delicious Vanilla Bean Ice Cream for the first time. My daughter told me about it and I tried it. It was so wonderful! My husband couldn't believe it could be so good. As for now, I can buy this at our Walmart, but at any given time they won't carry it any longer.

Cheryl Crossman says …

Love the creamer in my coffee and feel like I'm really cheating when I have the chocolate coconut milk..thanks Whole Foods for being in our community.

Barry Bright says …

I thought being diagnosed with Celiac Disease was bad until about 3 years ago I was told that I had many food allergies including daity products, soy, and cane sugar. This was like a death notice for me, the man who loves his cheese and ice cream! Fortunately, my wife food your products! Every night since, I have induldged in your So Delicious Coconut Milk products. My favorites are the Mint Chocolate Chip "ice cream" and the Almond Bars.

Evonne Daniel says …

I recently found out why eating ice cream made me cough a lot for a couple hours after eating it. Found out I had a sensitivity to dairy. Oh no! Ice cream is my favorite food! I had a mission! When I found SO Delicious brand in the freezer at Whole Foods and some other retailers, I was ecstatic. I grabbed a little carton of vanilla and went home feeling great! After supper, I scooped out 1/2 a cup and sat on the couch. One bite and I was hooked! It tastes better than regular ice cream! So creamy and full of flavor! I've tried several flavors now, but my most favorite treat is to eat the Vanilla Bean coconut ice cream topped with fresh (or frozen) sweet dark cherries! Wow! True Bliss!

Barbara KelleyMathis says …

How many calories ans how much sugar?

Shannon says …

I love So Delicious ice cream, ice cream bars, and ice cream sandwiches! All the frozen dessert products are amazing, still haven't found one I don't like!

Catherine says …

Pomegranate chip and French vanilla creamer!

Katie Windom says …

My favorite dairy-free indulgence is the So Delicious Chocolate Almond Ice Cream Minis! I LOVE ALL So Delicious products!

James M says …

I love the Ice Cream Sandwiches! Although my local grocery store recently stopped selling them, I try to snag some at the Whole Foods when I'm in the area of one. One time I randomly found one in the back of my freezer and was super stoked!

Rita says …

I swore off ice cream years ago--it wasn't worth the stomachaches. Then I discovered So Delicious. I've tried most of the flavors offered, but their chocolate is still my favorite. It's like enjoying a frozen dark chocolate bar. Not too sweet, it allows the bold chocolate flavor to shine. When they say chocolate, they mean CHOCOLATE! My second favorite is the cookies n cream. There's something about the cookies that taste so good. Finding a big piece of cookie is like hitting the jackpot!

aubree says …

Now that Summer is finally here , it's time to come up with some cooler treats to get for the season . Unfortunately , my sister has an Dairy Allergy and she can't eat anything with Dairy based products . That is why I am signing up for the SO Delicious contest ! We love every SO delicious ice cream sandwiches and milks that your company brings to the milk Aisle ! It would be an true blessing to win the contest . Summer is almost here and I can just smell the ice cream aroma right now .

Kristine Ahlskog says …

I love their passionate mango ice cream! My favorite!! And I don't know what I would do w/o the coconut milk creamer......I just purchased the shelf stable creamer at Whole Foods today! Cannot wait to use!!!

Karen McDonald says …

It was bad, the vice had a grip on me. I prayed that somehow, I could control myself and resist, and then... I became lactose intolerant!!! No dear God... please don't take my ice cream away!!! Well, years passed, and I missed the yummyness of ice cream, the cream in my coffee, the goodness of yogurt, and the crunch of my Cheerios. I tried some of the products on the market, and I was "Take it or leave it". Then I discovered SO Delicious Coconut products!!! Oh my, how I LOVE the creamyness and the richness that I have missed for so long... Yes, things in moderation, I learned my lesson!!! We have 3 sons & they enjoy them too. Our favs have to be the Chocolate Mint Chip & Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk "Ice Cream" and the Vanilla Almond Milk. Thanks for the great recipes that offer new options for things we had to give up. The flavor & texture are great & we love the variety it's SO Delicious!!!

Cristiana Giulia Calderan Bell says …

My son and I are both vegan and we love So Delicious products! This weekend we made rootbeer floats and purple cows with natural stevia soda and So delicious coconut milk vanilla ice cream. It was SO DELICIOUS! The coconut milk creamer over fresh strawberries or blueberries makes a delicious treat. I am so proud of my son and his devotion to being vegan. So Delicious makes it easy for me to treat him to delicious and yummy things that he otherwise would miss out on because he does not eat dairy products. Thanks!

Dana says …

No sugar added Butter Pecan with Trader Joe's semi sweet chocolate chips!

Stacy Schlocker-Zurich says …

So Delicious has revolutionized my husbands' life. Prior to meeting me he had always struggled with "stomach problems." Breakfast was always cereal with milk and coffee with creamer. By mid-morning he was suffering! He could not workout consistently due to severe stomach cramping. Now it is So Delicious Coconut Creamer in coffee, Almond milk on cereal and Vanilla Ice Cream for a sweet treat. Both of us are healthier than we have ever been. I am planning on surprising him with So Delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream for his birthday!

Diana Noll says …

My favorite non-dairy indulgence is strawberry ice cream that I make using SoDelicious coconut milk and SoDelicious coconut creamer!!

Aubree says …

I love your Ice Cream Sandwiches ! My sister is allergic to Milk dairy products . So we had to limit the things that we usually get from the store that were made with milk and choose to get the SO Delicious coconut milk instead . It was an perfect idea because I never thought that coconut milk would taste this good ! You guys can make the best milk that no others could ever make ! Oh , and I am in love with your chocolate milk ! It takes me into another paradise in just one sip !

Niki says …

My partner found out a year ago she is unable to eat dairy, soy and wheat. So Delicious has helped her ease into a new way of life. She loves the Mint Ice cream. We also have removed our family from cow milk and ONLY use So Delicious.

Patricia Parrish says …

My favorite is Coconut. I love coconut in just about anything. It is hard to find in an "ice cream" unless it is summer and then it is very limited. So with So Delicious Dairy Free, I can have coconut all year round. Thank you for the great product.

Kim says …

I love almost any non-dairy dessert but So Delicious is my favorite store-bought treat. For a daily non-dairy indulgence my favorite is unsweetened almond milk in my coffee.

Courtney Cox says …

my absolute FAVORITE has got to be a tie between the coffee creamers and the almond milk/coconut milk, i drink coffee on a DAILY basis so when i recently discovered my lactose and gluten intolerance i honest to goodness felt like the walls were closing in and i'd lost more than HALF of what i was used to using! Then i remembered SO Delicious, i can't express to you how grateful i am for a company that has such high standards to keep it's customers safe not only from food allergens but from GMO's as well, you all have a customer for LIFE.

Jenine Lawton says …

My children have severe food allergies to milk, egg,peanut, wheat and barley. We are SO thankful for you chocolate cookie dough flavor. My kids, and their parents, LOVE it! So creamy and delicious!

Nabcy Martin says …

I guess my favorite non- dairy indulgence would be vegan banana splits. All the ingredients add up to a pretty expensive desert, so those are extremely rare treats in my house!

Diana Novellano says …

My family loves the neopolitan ice cream sandwiches!

Jennifer says …

Our family is dairy free, soy free and egg free and your frozen deserts are a god-send. The chocolate ice cream is like heaven on earth, so is the vanilla bean. My kids like Cherry Amaretto and also chocolate mint. Thanks!!

Sandy Smith says …

I love all your products (and wish local stores carried more of your "ice cream" flavors), but I REALLY love the soy sandwich minis!! Thanks for making great products that never harm animals!!

Lydia says …

I love SoDelicious yogurts! The strawberry and cherry kinds rock my world :)

Suzanne says …

As a vegan that's also allergic to soy, I love so delicious's product line Not everything they make is soy-free, but they very clearly label their products which I very much appreciate. My favorite right now is the banana split ice cream sandwiches, omigosh they're so good!
