Realy Simple – The taste testers at Real Simple magazine trialed dozens of sorbet brands and flavors to find the best on the market. The full report will be in their August issue, but a sneak peek at the results shows that 6 out of the 57 varieties savored, were awarded top honors for "just-picked flavor." And the winners are:
Best Coconut Sorbet: Ciao Bella
Best Lemon Sorbet: Sharon's
Best Blood Orange Sorbet: Ciao Bella (really, how many competitors were there in this category?)
Best Mango Sorbet: Double Rainbow
Best Raspberry Sorbet: Ciao Bella
Best Strawberry Sorbet: Häagen-Dazs
Next week we will begin some of our own sorbet trials, venturing beyond the mainstream to trial Blackwell's Organic Sorbetto, and even a few of their dairy-free/vegan soy gelatos. Keep an eye on the freezer section in the Go Dairy Free product reviews for updates!
