Technically, Coconut Bliss Ice Cream Bars haven’t been discontinued. Instead they were slightly reformulated and rebranded as Cosmic Bliss Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches.
For years, Coconut Bliss Cookie Sandwiches made the rounds at small festivals where they were well received. But a couple of years ago, they finally made it to market.
These are basically ice cream sandwiches, but with several dietary and nutritious twists. They use a whole grain formula for their cookies and use unrefined sweeteners in the cookie dough. And oh yes, they are not only dairy-free, but vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, tree nut-free, and certified organic too.
Coconut Bliss Cookie Sandwiches are Legendary Vegan Frozen Desserts
Thus far, we’ve spotted two varieties of these ice cream cookie sandwiches. If you have tried either one, don’t forget to leave your own rating and review below!

But their products are made in facilities that also process frozen desserts containing dairy, eggs, wheat, soy, peanuts, and other tree nuts. Nonetheless, they have strict allergen protocols which involve dedicated production days, scheduling to minimize cross-contamination, strict sanitation between batches, and allergen testing of every batch.

Tried the chocolate one, normally $5.99 which is nuts…got it for $3.99, which is still nuts. The cookie is insanely dry and brittle, you need a plate. Also tasteless, like the ice cream…which is hard and flavorless. I’d refuse eating this in a jail cell, you need a lot of water when consuming whatever this is supposed to be.
Great and guilt free!
These are absolutely DELICIOUS! I’m so surprised the other 2 reviews aren’t in agreement with this. They taste like the cookie sandwiches that make your eyes fat when you look at them but they’re actually GOOD FOR YOU. My local market is always out of them because they’re in such demand!
Bought these because i have celiac and wanted to try something new. I ate it and immediately after i felt sick and was up all night. The taste wasn’t even good.
NOT soft, creamy, gourmet, luscious, luxurious . . . SO NOT worth it
I have fond memories of an occasional ice cream treat: the chocolate wafer was just the perfect means to get the delicious vanilla ice cream to the mouth. These cookies are NOT even remotely like them.These contain whole millet, and in this case being frozen, which gives them an unexpected and extra hard crunch–very disappointing–so unlike the descriptions that go with ice cream. They are healthy, which is good. But the healthy flavour over powers the vanilla. I would never buy one again, even at half the price–i will continue watching for GF DF chocolate wafers filled with creamy, luscious, DF , soy free, vanilla ice. Oh, how I long for one! It is the thing I have most missed these 15 years of being a DF celiac. As well, I reacted to these cookies. GF oats does not work for many of us celiacs. Wonder which company will get a bright idea!
Depends what you want. All things considered, it isn’t too bad for a healthy snack. I did not at all enjoy biting down on hard millet seeds (are frozen ones extra hard?) and frozen, crunchy chocolate chips when I’m dreaming of those soft, smooth, delectable (unhealthy) ice cream sandwiches that i miss. The cookie has a strong enough healthy flavour, and the ice cream tastes like coconut, definitely not like vanilla as the box advertises (and I really dislike coconut-flavoured ice cream), that the vanilla (if any) is totally masked. Neither the texture nor the taste even remotely remind me of an ice cream sandwich that I sometimes long for. If all i want is a healthy cookie, there are many cheaper and better options. I had been so excited when I saw this–but it was a let down. Maybe the dark chocolate sandwich would be more what I’m looking for– does that flavour overpower both that healthy taste, as well as the coconut ice cream? But wait–does it have frozen whole millet? This is the only GF ice cream sandwich i have found–in over 20 years–so maybe this is the beginning–I’ll be watching what evolves next in the GF ice cream sandwich world. Till then, I’ll pass these by. And those, I hope will not have GF oat flour, as many of us dairy-free celiacs react to that. Just another reason to let them alone–they aren’t GF enough for me. My belly aches already, and it wasn’t worth it.
So sorry, Coconut Bliss, I wanted to write a rave review.
Reacted to something
I ate the cookie dough ice cream and it caused me to feel ill with headache – blurred vision, brain fog – all day. This product should have a warning if it is ” made in a facility” with wheat – etc- also hemp should be listed as an allergen as well – how can they say they’re gluten free?☹️
