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?

Our family LOVES So Delicious Ice Cream. There are five people in our family and four are allergic to milk so So Delicious has been a God send. The Vanilla and Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Creams are the favorites by far. Thank you for this company!!!

I am new to this whole non-dairy and gluten free world. Not sure where to begin. I have been in and out of the hospital in the last 2/3 months over 8 times for stomach problems. Think the doctors have given up on me. So, I am changing the way I eat and live. Quit smoking cold Turkey after almost 14 years March 7th. Very excited and nervous to start this new chapter in my life. Reading this site helps me know that there is still going to be things I can eat and don't have to give up on FOOD:).

I have shopped at Whole Foods 1989 when I lived in Austin. Since I moved to the DFW area there no stores within an hour drive of my house or 45 minute drive from work. May I suggest a store in Las Colinas. It would be a great area for one of your stores.

I absolutely LOVE So Delicious Coconut Milk frozen desserts! If I had to pick a favorite it'd be a tie between Cherry Amaretto and Mint Chip. My fiance introduced me to Cherry Amaretto one night when he surprised me with a candle lit dessert night after a late night at work. It was so sweet...both him and the Cherry Amaretto :) The Vanilla Bean is also an excellent topper on some non-dairy brownies!! So Delicious Coconut Milk frozen desserts has made being dairy-free and soy sensitive so much easier...and tastier!! :)

I absolutely love So Delicious. It has honestly saved my skin. Eating and drinking products with milk in them was causing my acne to flare up. I gave up milk and switched to So Delicious and it has made all the difference in the world. Thank you so much!

I had been looking for a *delicious* dairy alternative, so thank you!! My absolute favorite combo is the pomegranate chip! I love the brightness of the pom with the indulgent chocolate. When the love of ice cream comes up & I learn someone has dairy issues, I start telling them about So Delicious. Ha! I just realized, your name is ridiculously fitting. :D
