Earlier today, I mentioned the revamp and expansion of Albertsons house brand of oatmilk ice cream. But their almondmilk ice cream line has also undergone a makeover, which includes two trendy new flavors: Cherry Maximum Fudge Moose Tracks and Caramel Macchiato. These fledgling Open Nature Almond frozen dessert pints also have a new base formula, which boasts almond paste as the first ingredient, instead of almondmilk.
Open Nature Almond Frozen Dessert Holds Steady with 3 Vegan Flavors
The initial launch of Open Nature Almondmilk Frozen Dessert included three flavors. Two have been discontinued, but the new flavors have taken their place. Thus far, the original Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavor has remained untouched. But Albertsons has indicated a makeover of the packaging in the near future. The new flavors are listed first, with the updated packaging that you should keep an eye out for.

best flavor that i have taste
blueberry oatmeal crumble is the best. i would like to see them sold in 1/2 gallon containers. is this ever going to be possible? or any of the flavors ?
Absolutely nailed it!
Probably one of the best non dairy ice creams out there. This flavor is just bomb! Hints of coffee, chocolate bits n caramel. Really impressed!
Priced perfectly too.
Not a vegan, but I’m enjoying these
The fudge brownie almond milk dessert is really good. This is in no way a diet dessert item, but it holds its own against the real thing. I have yet to find the coffee caramel fudge, but I’m keeping my eyes peeled 👀
non dairy frozen desert
excellent much better than i thought it would taste
Fudge brownie- EH!
Well this left much to be desired in flavor. I won’t buy any more of the almond milk frozen dessert anymore, but will buy the others .
Too many ingredients, none of which helps this product taste good/better. Very bland flavor. Does not even come close to the quality of a couple other plant based ice creams on the market. This was a regrettable purchase. Please study Coconut Bliss product of you want to compete.
Tried the Chocolate Fudge Brownie
It wasn’t bad, but didn’t make us inspired to try other flavors. The creaminess is moderate – not super creamy, but not icy. The flavor was a little lackluster. Like some other non-dairy brands, they focused a little too much on the sweet and chocolate sides, without balancing out the flavor.
