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?

The So Delicious coconut milk is a staple in my smoothies and cereals, but the coconut ice cream is the best indulgence that makes me not miss dairy at all!

Kimberly says …

my kids, who are on a dairy-free diet because of life-threatening food allergies, *love love love* your vanilla coffee creamer--with coffee, with tea, or all by itself. if i let them, they would consume an entire pint-sized carton every day! :)

Cheri Dubs says …

I am all for this...gluten and dairy free. The only problem is, access to your products. We live in a rural community and have to drive 2 hours to go to a Whole Foods or other store that carries the SO product.

Maurina Paradise says …

I love it all! I am allergic to dairy, and have been since birth, and thanks to So Delicious I don't have to have apple juice with my cereal. And neither does my daughter - who has my allergy. If I had to pick ONE product that I just would CRY if I had to give it up, would be Turtle Trails frozen dessert. AMA-HA-ZING!!

Paul Lipsky says …

My absolute favorite non-dairy indulgence is the So Delicious Coconut Milk Green Tea ice cream. Not only is the taste amazing, but I feel absolutely no guilt in eating an entire carton in one sitting :-)

Suzanne says …

As someone who is both vegan and allergic to soy, I love so delicious's product line. Not everything they make is soy-free, but everything is very clearly labeled, which I appreciate. Right now I'm hooked on their ice cream sandwiches, they're really tasty and low in calories which is also nice!

Kayla D says …

Favorite? Lots! OK, I'll narrow it down to the So Delicious frozen desserts. It's pretty tough to choose a favorite flavor, but I've been a mint chip lover since the beginning - it was my first experience with So Delicious, and I never can get enough. Living here in the heat of the Deep South, I need my frozen treats! How wonderful that after years of not being able to indulge, I can once again enjoy a fun frozen dessert without guilt, illness or pain! And the donations to the Brees Foundation . . . awesome!

tara pittman says …

I love peach ice

Linda Collier says …

I love so delicious chocolate coconut milk ice cream. I don't miss dairy(the cow kind) at all.

Heidi Gigante says …

My favorite So Delicious product is their Mocha Almond Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert. I can't tell you how much of a blessing it is to find an "ice cream" that is dairy free, and SO DELICIOUS! I applaud the company name, it's spot on!

Mandy Aureli says …

We LOVE So Delicious Coconut Milk ice cream in Chocolate Peanut Butter!!!! But we can't live without So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk, it's a staple and make the best smoothies!

Lorraine says …

My favorite non-dairy indulgence just happens to be So Delicious coconut milk ice cream. It is so delicious & creamy! A very close second is So Delicious hazelnut creamer. Thanks!

Andrea says …

I love your Coconut Yoghurt! My son is intolerant to dairy and this is a great calcium source. Thanks!!

Liz says …

SO many favorites, but the top one is So Delicious Yogurt ! Every flavor I have tried has been really tasty. Thank you for helping me stay dairy free!

Elizabeth says …

When I found out I was lactose intolerant, I was so sad that I would no longer be able to freely indulge in ice cream - my only lactose-filled food that I just cannot do without! That is until someone suggested I go to Whole Foods (I had never been) and I discovered the wonderful "dairy free treats" section! Yay!!! My favorites are now So Delicious Chocolate/peanut butter swirl and the Coconut/almond bars! :) Thank you, Whole Foods and So delicious!! My stomach - and taste buds- thanks you!

Crystie says …

When I first discovered So Delicious Coconut Milk "ice cream" my grocery store only had two options- vanilla & mint chip, I love mint so it was an instant sell- and FINALLY a creamy, full satisfying, totally indulgent non-dairy dessert! A few months later I was traveling and stopped in a new grocery store only to find NEW flavors-- SO exciting. Needless to say I walked out that day with five pints in five different flavors. I would have to say the variety is my favorite- being able to choose between the cherry amaretto, cookies and cream, mint chip, chocolate and cookie dough is amazing! I can't wait to keep discovering new flavors!

Kevin says …

I SCREAM FOR THE ICE CREAM! Amazing stuff!

Kathy Carli says …

My favorite indulgence is nuts especially pistachios.

Julie Otto says …

I was tired of missing out on fun family birthdays with cake and ice cream because I can't eat that until I found the cookie dough ice cream ad other wonderful flavors. I am able to celebrate with family and friends or indulge without worry that I will get sick. Thank you for your dedication to our health and wellness! You have given me Andy family something to celebrate!

Connor Helms says …

I am split between the coconut and chocolate flavored So Delicious coconut milk ice creams. However, I eat over 100 grams of cacao a day and it's a huge part of my life so.......chocolate it is!

Kait says …

My favorite So Delicious item is the Coconut creamer. As a person who has a dairy allergy it is important to me to find healthy (preferably soy free) alternatives that taste great. This company does just that. Thanks So Delicious for helping me to indulge!

Vivian says …

The coconut milk ice creams are my favorite! Especially the chocolate.

Erin says …

Having a dairy intolerance my son was raised on So Delicious products. We love it all the frozen desserts, coconut milk, yogurts are all delicious. We would love coupons for our favorite treats :)

Dedra R says …

My favorite indulgence dairy-free is the 'milk' drinks. It's all the flavor, enjoyment, vitamins, and pairings of dairy milk without the problems of dairy milk (upset stomach :_( !

Teresa says …

We love ALL So Delicious products. My youngest son has severe food allergies. As his mom, the one thing I always wanted was for him to be able to enjoy ice cream. Before we found you, we had tried ice cream made with rice milk, but it just lacked the creamy texture and full flavor of ice cream. I would always have my older son eat his bowl of ice cream after my youngest went to bed so he wouldn't have to watch his older brother enjoy something he couldn't eat. Now they can eat and enjoy their ice cream together! Now that we have found So Delicious ice cream I feel so thankful because he has such a high quality, delicious product to enjoy. His favorite is Cookie Dough and Mint Chocolate Chip. Being able to buy your ice cream has been an answer to my prayers. Next I hope you open some scoop shops or offer your product to scoop shops, so it would be available in a variety of venues. Thank you. Please continue to remember those with food allergies as you add to your product line.

Adelle F. says …

We go through a lot of So Delicious coconut milk ice cream in this house! It is a delicious and creamy non-dairy option.

marisa teeter says …

I've just recently had to give up dairy and discovered your coconut milk ice cream bars with chocolate and almond coating! Now I'm addicted, they're the yummiest thing I have ever put in my mouth!!!

kaos2897 says …

It's really nice to have some non-dairy choices to replace the dairy I had to give up due to an allergy to whey. Having loved yogurt, especially Greek type, I was thrilled to see this and ice cream as treats. I have to say I was really disappointed in your Greek yogurt. The texture was more liked yogurt with lots of something added to it for thickening.

Sandrine Davis says …

I love So Delicious' frozen coconut desserts! So far I have only tried the vanilla, but I can't wait to try the chocolate! Thank you all so much!

Alayne Palacios says …

I looove the cookie dough ice cream! Its the best!

Rita says …

My favorite indulgence used to be coconut milk, but after finding So Delicious at my local Meijer, I have fallen in love with the chocolate coconut milk ice-cream. I have a pint of the cookie dough flavor in my freezer, but haven't tried it yet. It may surpass my love for chocolate.

Tim says …

Come to us!

Rachel says …

I'm writing this for my daughter....she's 13, and been milk allergic for many years! Recently, our Kroger has started stocking a cookies and cream variety of So Delicious. Now, every time we go to town, she begs to stop and run in the grocery to get her ice cream!! I've actually let her get a whole pint a few times, so as we drive around she gets to eat a "ton" of her favorite ice cream!

Alison says …

My 4 year old daughter loves the ice cream sandwiches and my personal favorite are all of the Greek style yogurts. Thank you for making dairy free So Delicious :)

Stephanie Hillery says …

We love the So Delicious ice cream. Our favorite flavors are Cherry Amaretto and Mint Chocolate chip. We also love the creamer but can't find it anywhere. I wish I could find out who carries it.

Melissa says …

I love the So Delicious Almond Milk and the Chocolate Coconut ice cream!!

Jeannie says …

I have been using and loving So Delicious coconut milk for the last couple of years. I love the new unsweetened vanilla too for a change of pace. Yummy Hazelnut coffee creamer and the frozen desserts!!! Thank you So Delicious for your wonderful products!!!

Kelli Schulenberg says …

My favorite non-dairy dessert is So Delicious' Turtle Trails Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert. I was ecstatic after discovering the flavor through a friend, after not having caramel for a few years, this was an awesome find!

Tricia Wagner says …

Thank you so much for completely changing my life! I am 40 years old and have never been able to tolerate dairy or soy, so life of food was pretty limited. Since I discovered So delicious, I have eaten a bowl of cereal and enjoyed the amazement of hot chocolate!! My favorite though is the yogurt. I am a true "foodie" and I longed to experience yogurt and what it brings to recipes, now I can. With sincerest gratitude, Tricia

Alex says …

Being a lactose intolerant family, we've been waiting for a product like this for years and thankful it's now available! Love the chocolate!

Ashley Faddis says …

So Delicious is AMAZING!

Natalia says …

The So Delicious Coconut Milk - Coconut flavor ice cream is absolutely the best. Love it!

Amanda Kendall says …

My favorite non-dairy indulgence is definitely the SO Delicious Minis Vanilla Sandwiches! Something about an ice cream sandwich just screams "treat" for me and the SO Delicious version is no exception. The ice cream part is so smooth and the cookie is just the right amount of chocolate. I LOVE THEM!

Deborah Eby says …

My favorite non-diary indulgence is So Delicious fudge bars. My daughter is allergic to milk, so I have been on a quest to find delicious foods for her to substitute when everyone else is enjoying a diary treat. So Delicious has some of the best on market!

Katie Casey says …

Oh my, I just started buying your products and they are delicious! My absolute favorite is your French Vanilla creamer! All I have to do is add a little to my coffee and it tastes amazing. I don't even have to add additional natural sugars to it!

Desiree says …

I love love love So Delicious vanilla soy free,dairy free coconut ice cream. I also can't have coffee without So Delicious vanilla coffee creamer. Thank you for so many delicious options. Des

Craig Casey says …

My wife and I recently went on the Paleo diet and just started buying and trying your products. Although I did love my dairy, these are great alternatives that taste really well. Two of my favorites are your unsweetened coconut milk for smoothies and your vanilla coconut milk that I can just drink straight. Thank you for making great products!

Nissy says …

I just loveeee So Delicious products. We use the So Delicious Coconut Milk for our cereals and oatmeal and when we eat sweets. We love the coconut ice cream, especially chocolate and the ice cream sandwiches. It would be so wonderful to receive coupons for our financial situation is not a good one and my parents both have cancer. Thank you so much and keep making these delicious products!

misty says …
