In addition to seven flavors of dairy-free ice cream, Oregon Ice Cream is launching two varieties of single-serve ice cream sandwiches. Alden’s Organic Dairy-Free Sammies are made with vegan round cookie wafers and their relatively low calorie dairy-free ice cream for a much lighter version of a very indulgent frozen dessert.

Alden’s leverages two of their organic dairy-free ice cream flavors in these light ice cream sandwich treats.

More Allergen Notes
Alden’s also makes dairy ice cream, and they have shared the following allergen information.
All of our products are made on shared equipment, which sometimes processes milk, eggs, wheat, soy, tree nuts, and peanuts. We have a strict allergen control policy and work hard to prevent cross-contamination of allergens, but we do not test finished products for the presence of allergens unless the package clearly states the product is free of a specific allergen. Alden’s does test for the presence of dairy / milk in the Dairy Free products. Also, because they are Vegan certified, allergen testing is conducted so customers can feel confident that there is no cross contamination with milk.

What Others Are Saying ...
Love the Caramel Drizzle Sammie
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first opened one. The cookies looked more like crackers. But they were perfectly sweet, soft, and a little sticky. The ice cream was firm, but just creamy enough, and the caramel swirl – oh my, the swirl! It was sweet, salty, sultry, and oh-so addictive. We tried the Vanilla Bean Sammies, too. They were good, just not as wow as the Caramel ones.
You'll Never Know It's Dairy Free!
I bought the vanilla/chocolate sammies. Excellent! Good flavor, good texture, and considerably thicker than the competition. Two thumbs up! I may go back for the caramel flavor.
