So (Delicious) you can’t do dairy? Not to worry!

DSC04158 (450x337)GreenAcres customers were sold on So Delicious dairy-free products from the very first time we demoed them in our stores.

For one thing, the ice cream tastes delicious and only the most discerning can tell it’s not full-fat dairy ice cream.

We’re coming into the holidays and it’s full speed ahead for So Delicious dairy-free Coco Whip Topping. Our customers serve it a’top pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. They make sundaes out of it in the summer. They have shared recipes for Jello-jiggly desserts using Coco Whip.  There’s really nothing you can’t use non-dairy whip on, or so it seems.

Besides tasting good, So Delicious has put a tremendous effort into making sure those with allergies can enjoy whipped and icey goodness without fear of reprisal.

DSC04159 (400x300)The So Delicious website declares it is “…committed to doing the right things for people, animals and the planet. We use organic ingredients whenever possible and our entire line of foods and beverages is certified vegan and Non-GMO Project Verified. We don’t use artificial flavors, colors, hydrogenated oils or trans-fats. Because our foods and beverages are plant based, our line is also cholesterol free.”

The company partners with farmers and suppliers from countries such as Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Brazil where its primary ingredients are grown, and it takes pride in treating its farmer partners with the dignity and respect they deserve.

So Delicious likes to say it has built a “culture of care.” Everything from using recycled cartons for its frozen dessert bars and sandwiches to reducing water consumption to save energy to protecting world forests from needless destruction helps the company fulfill its primary mission to minimize its carbon footprint.

Many of its frozen desserts are made from cashew nut milk with each spoonful creamy and delicious and made from Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients, certified gluten free and certified vegan.

While the company is more than 30 years old, and started out as a soy-based frozen dessert company, the fact that many consumers cannot tolerate soy started the founders in another direction. Says the website: “Our passion for providing foods and beverages that are delicious and safe to those who can’t consume certain ingredients is at the core of what we do, so we expanded our portfolio to fit the needs of many people who manage complex food restrictions. 

DSC04161 (400x300)For years we have been making soy, almond, cashew and coconut based products in our facilities as well as managing various inclusions that go into our frozen desserts. We have been able to manage this really complex portfolio of products because of our rigorous allergen-control program.”

For those GreenAcres customers who are dairy free and have food sensitivities, feel free to celebrate the holidays with a dollop of whip on your favorite pie—just make it So Delicious Coco Whip and no one will know the difference.

And to make it more economical for you to indulge, the So Delicious Coco Whip is on sale all of November for $2.99 a 9 oz. tub.  Check out our most recent newsletter and see if there’s anything else you need for Thanksgiving dinner.
