Favorite Day Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert adds Dairy-Free Value to Target

0

In late 2018, I reported on the store brands of dairy-free ice cream that were popping up. Honestly, I didn’t want to get my hopes up that they would stick around, but most are holding strong, including Target’s line. In fact, they just updated and rebranded their entire selection. Archer Farms Non-Dairy has now become Favorite Day Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert! Don’t worry, the product itself really hasn’t changed, but the look and the price have with this value-oriented brand.

Their initial Archer Farms launch included seven flavors, and those same varieties are still available under the new brand. Favorite Day Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert pints come in classic vanilla bean plus six more flavors that are generously stocked with gluten-free add-ins, like cake, cookie down, brownies, caramel, and fudge swirls. This sweet, indulgent, plant-based ice cream is loaded with dessert intentions and made with a lightly creamy almondmilk base.

Best nondairy ice cream ever!

I shopped at the new Target site Friday 6/18/21 & discovered an excellent & tasty nondairy ice cream since I’m lactose intolerant. My favorite one is the cashew caramel & plan to try caramel brownie.

I loved Archer Farms chocolate/peanut butter dairy free ice cream.
When they changed companies, I tried the new brand.
The recipe for this flavor had changed.
Am very disappointed with the new ice cream.

I can’t eat gluten, dairy or soy and hate the plain ice cream flavors especially the non dairy that taste like chalk but the vanilla cake and cookie is amazing! Ive missed cake batter ice cream since being gluten free and this made my day. Next maybe cherry ice cream with the same chocolate hard shell swirl?

Traditional flavors

It’s nice finding ice cream that I can finally eat. Was wondering if you would consider some traditional flavors. Example cookies & cream in vanilla, plain coffee ice cream, vanilla, just strawberries, plain chocolate. I only ask because I happen to like plain coffee ice cream, I miss not being able to buy it. There are others of us that would like traditional flavors?

Good flavors, but very sweet!

We tired the Vanilla Cake & Cookie Dough and the Caramel Brownie and they were both very sweet. My husband loved them, and I liked them, but would like it if they knocked down the sweetness a notch or two. The cake/cookie dough variety has big chunks of chocolate, which surprised me, and generous balls of cookie dough throughout. For some reason, I thought the Caramel Brownie would be chocolate, but it’s vanilla-based with caramel sauce swirls and some big pieces of brownie – they could have been more generous with the brownies. It seemed a bit more like caramel swirl ice cream.
