The dairy-free ice cream formerly known as Totes Oats has an all-new look, formula, and name. But despite the flashy new image, Must Love Oats is still a rather wholesome and humble frozen dessert. It’s made with a base of oats and coconut, and it comes in some rather cozy flavors.
Must Love Oats is Totes Creamy Pints of Dairy-Free Frozen Dessert
Some of the formula changes include scaling back on the dates, using more traditional sweeteners, and swapping the organic chocolate for three-ingredient dairy-free chocolate chips. This allowed them to lower the price!
The initial roll out includes two of their classic flavors, and a completely updated version of their third original flavor. And as you can see, there are some more flavors to come. Once you buy and try any Must Love Oats pints, be sure to leave your unbiased rating and review below.

I asked Must Love about allergen protocols, and they sent the following response:
We are managed on equipment that sometimes processes milk, wheat, tree nuts, eggs, soy, corn, and peanuts, so if your audience has severe allergies, it would be safer for them to not consume our product.
But when I specifically asked again about their cleaning processes, they responded:
Our plant has a strict policy of thoroughly washing before and after each production run of our products!

By the way, the oat ice cream is amazing!!!!!! I just found out its a small business. We gotta to wait bit longer for the responses. It is not easy during 2022.
It was caramel in the vanilla pint. I contacted Must Love to let them know about it. No one replied. I tried to get their attention in instagram. She deleted my comments and no response back to me. Poor customer service. I was trying to be caring and must love didnt reply nor any offer solution.
I thought it really tasted great for non dairy ice cream. An entire container is only 45 grams of sugar. The big brands have much more. Also it’s sweetened with coconut nectar. The calories are much lower than others. I compared a pint of must love to a quart of Haagen Dazs. Total calories per pint of Must Love is 480. Total calories for a quart of Haagen Dazs is 990.
