So Delicious Coconutmilk No Sugar Added Ice Cream has Changed

19

Updated December 2020! After nearly a decade as one of America’s favorite dairy-free, sugar-free ice creams, So Delicious changed their formula. Yes, I’m sad to say that yet another brand has opted to mess with perfection in pursuit of the latest dietary trend. They added oatmilk to their No Sugar Added Ice Cream, increased the fat and calories, and reduced the carbohydrates. For some people, this move toward keto is good news. But for others who’ve loved this product for years … this isn’t the same product anymore.

So Delicious Coconutmilk No Sugar Added Ice Cream has Changed

The formula change of So Delicious Coconutmilk No Sugar Added Ice Cream happened right at the end of 2020, so be sure to leave your own rating and review below once you’ve tried this new formula.

The texture of the prior recipe was awesome. It was so smooth and creamy that I looked like an ice cream parlor jockey serving up perfect round scoops. I did find the alternative sweeteners a little overpowering at times, but my taste buds adapted a little with each bite. That said, the new recipe of their no sugar added ice cream is higher in both fat and alternative sweeteners (the flavors have more sugar alcohols), so I’m curious to see how they compare. I’ll update with our own notes once we’ve tried it.

Butter Pecan

This recipe doesn’t appear to be changed, so I’m leaving our prior tasting notes. The Butter Pecan was rich and filling – the way good ice cream should be. I’m a big fan of butter pecan, and really can’t get enough of the flavor. For that reason, I wished this one had a little more of that intense buttery flavor. Again, the sweeteners overpowered it a bit for me, but that didn’t stop me from sneaking spoonfuls throughout the day.

USED to be the best, new recipe NOT EDIBLE!

Rated 1 out of 5
February 15, 2021

I was really excited to have this icecream again after not having it available where I lived for over a year. This USED to be the only icecream I would eat–absolutely wonderful, creamy and chocolatey and no after-taste. And being sugar-free made it just that much better. However, when I took a nice big bite last week I was very disappointed to see that they have drastically changed their recipe. It is now completely inedible. It has a strong artificial, almost plastic-like stevia sweetener flavor and tastes nothing like it used to. So disappointing and such a waste of $8! Complained to SD customer service and got a generic response back.

I just spent $10 on 2 pints of So deliscious dairy free ice cream that says new recipe on it. Is it the oat flour milk or the monk fruit? Whatever it is I got a stomach ache within 5 minutes of eating some. I get my favorite choc. mint and tried what I expected to like, the pecan. I can’t afford to spend money on things I cant eat. Any coupons available I will try the chocolate coated bars again. So deliscious was so disappointing.

A year ago I would have given the no added sugar coconut ice cream five stars, but since they’ve changed the recipe I can only give it one. Now it’s diminished to a small and expensive container of an icy, flavorless, hard to scoop, mess. Kinda like when you leave a cheap ice cream in the deep freezer for a couple of years with the lid off. So disappointing.

Due to dietary restrictions I haves been enjoying your sugar free vanilla ice cream for years until today I bought one and noticed the difference in taste- I looked at the ingredients and noticed the change and for me I can tolerate wheat or oat flour. Unfortunately I will have to stop buying this brand of ice cream which makes me sad😕

I never tried dairy-free ice cream and Haagen-Dazs was always my favorite. I tried my favorite flavor, vanilla, and it was very good. I like my ice cream quite hard and it was very smooth, so that part didn’t bother me. I would choose 4.5 stars because I think they tried a bit too hard on the sweetness level. It was just a bit sweeter than perfect, but overall very good and worth switching to a healthier option.

I accidentally bought a couple of the changed flavor without realizing and had to throw it out. It was literally the only ice cream I could eat without getting sick. The new ice cream is hard as a rock and the flavor is terrible.

Not the same product anymore

A couple years ago, I gave this product 4 stars, and rated it one of the best dairy-free, low sugar options available. It was smooth, rich, creamy, and the taste wasn’t half bad at all. But now, it’s just not good. My ice cream scoop no longer sinks in, it doesn’t have a rich and creamy mouthfeel, and the taste is just off. I added it to a vanilla ice cream taste test we did with four people, and everyone made a funny face. I’ve removed my old review, and am replacing it with this one to better reflect the current product.

  1. It’s very good however it’s not 1 gram of sugar per serving, it’s actually 6 grams of sugar per serving. You have to count the 5 grams of sugar alcohol per serving.

  2. I live 30643 area code..I have tried so hard to buy the no sugar added mint chip with no success…I’ve tried to order vis Publix nearest me without luck. So disappointed.

    • I wish I could help you Rebecca, but I’m not affiliated with them. You might want to contact So Delicious directly as I don’t see it available in your area when I searched their store locator on their website.

  3. Glenis Gambrelll on

    Your facility sounds as though lines and all tools are cleaned sufficiently for people with nut allergies. Am I just assuming? My granddaughters doctor said to find out whether nuts are processed in the facility before buying…please respond

    • Glenis, you would need to contact So Delicious directly to get allergen information on their facility. This is an unbiased third party review – Go Dairy Free is not affiliated with them.

  4. But why did they need to add Carageenan to the ingredients? It’s a cancer-causing ingredient and makes this product a no-go for me.

    • I’m not sure Barbara. They’ve reformulated a lot of their products to be carrageenan-free, but I guess they haven’t gotten to these yet. You might want to put in a request!

  5. My husband’s cancer diet is sugar, milk sweeteners (except Stevia) free. He loves the chocalate, but I can’t get it here in town. They don’t handle the no added sugar icecream. Can it be mailed directly to me?

    • I haven’t seen a place that sells the So Delicious online. However, Halo Top recently started selling their new non-dairy ice cream online – I know it is much lower calorie, but I’m not 100% sure what sweeteners they use.

      • I’ve been looking everywhere for the no sugar mint, even ordered it, but it never comes to they are lying to me and never order.

  6. I absolutely love the chocolate & mint and chip no sugar added. This is hands down the best find for me during a diet or just staying healthy.

  7. Unfortunately, I’ve only been able to find the vanilla at the Whole Foods where I live. I agree with Cara, it’s fair…I asked the Whole Foods to please stock some of the other flavors, but to no avail…would love to try the rest as I too have sugar problems.

  8. I dunno, Alisa, I am kind of with you on this one! And normally, I am someone who CAN stand stevia in things. I’ve had the chocolate and the vanilla from this bunch. I confess to buying the chocolate for an ice cream sundae party, so I probably missed what it actually tasted like by smothering it in candy 😉 But the vanilla… it was just “ehh” and sort of fake-tasting for me.
