My how times change. It seems like not long ago that Purely Decadent Dairy-Free Ice Cream was the pioneer in the world of non-dairy frozen dessert. Created by Turtle Mountain, the fanciful flavors saved me many times when those cool and creamy cravings hit. But over the years, the soy-based line has repeatedly dwindled. And after a recent rebranding to “So Delicious Soymilk Frozen Desserts,” it’s down to two flavors: Vanilla and Chocolate.
So Delicious Soymilk Ice Cream Scales Down to Core Flavors
Years ago, we reveled in exciting and delicious flavors like Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Zig Zag, and Turtle Trails. But the heyday of soy is past, at least for now. And So Delicious has opted to focus more on dairy-free ice cream made with cashews, coconut, and oats. But thanks to a loyal following, they’re still hanging on to two of the classic So Delicious Soymilk Ice Cream flavors.

The vanilla one is super creamy and really sweet! Much better than the almond and coconut flavors I’ve had before 🙂
The soy ice cream is still a classic in my book.
Honestly, I miss the Purely Decadent flavors of days past. Their new cashewmilk ice cream is amazing, but I’ve always thought the soy ice cream was better than their coconut and almond lines. I’m glad it’s still around though. We’ve bought the vanilla a few times, and it’s relatively soft and creamy. And I love that it doesn’t taste like coconut! It’s lighter than ice cream (in consistency and nutrition), which we actually prefer.
what is the nutritional info? fat and calorie content?
See their website for this information.
I live in Niagara on The Lake Ontario Canada. I can no longer find Purely Decadent chocolate ice cream,
Any suggestions ?
Hi Don, you should reach out to the brand. They haven’t discontinued it yet and can probably help you out. Their Canadian site is here – http://sodeliciousdairyfree.ca/
I am having trouble finding mocha almond ice cream. I repeat mocha almond fudge purely decadent ice cream with coconut milk my most recent location was Whole Foods but today at a whole foods location at where my most recent location was Whole Foods but today at a whole foods location at at States Bridge Rd., Alpharetta near Atlanta Georgia did not have that flavor in their case. I was greatly disappointed. It is my hope that this my has not been discontinued because I like it so much. I try your SOL vanilla today and did not care for it at all in fact I did not finish the pint. It was devoid of the Nella flavor. Please let me know where I can find mocha almond fudge ice cream that’s nondairy and not soy. Thank you
It hasn’t been discontinued James. You can see the store locator on their website – http://sodeliciousdairyfree.com/store-finder – also, you can ask your local store to start stocking it again. Most are receptive to requests.
I’m from Slovenia, Europe!
As I can see, there are quite a few ice cream companies in the US that don’t use dairy/eggs in their production! So why are vegans there praising so much these new Ben&Jerry’s 4 vegan options of their ice cream? They are still heavily eggs/dairy based company and we all know, ethically, what that means for the animals! I don’t get it, what’s wrong with these “So delicious”, “Tofutti”, “Coconut bliss” brands that are obviously not enough for them???
Keep up the good work!
I agree, companies like So Delicious are the best! Unfortunately, they aren’t in ice cream shops. I think we all like the opportunity to go out for a scoop for fun 🙂

My grocery store is no longer carrying the Purely Decadent desserts. I am heart broken. I don’t like the coconut milk versions nearly as well. I wish they would bring it back. Many of us haven’t had a problem with soymilk, and it has protein and calcium. Who carries it?
We love Purely Decadent. It’s the best dairy free ice cream on the market. However, we can no longer find it at Whole Foods or our co-op. Is it still available?
Hi Jan, I recently confirmed with Turtle Mountain (the maker’s of this brand) that Purely Decadent is still available, and have paired down my review to include the flavors still available that we’ve tried. You can see the full list of their available Purely Decadent flavors at http://www.sodeliciousdairyfree.com
I have never tried these before!! They look so tasty!! I love cookie dough…so I would definitely try that flavor first!! mmmm!
i havent try it yet,but bought it to my mom,who absolutly love it.
This is some of the best ice cream around. Can never get enough.
I actually wish they had some that had mix-ins that were not chocolate, or at least not so much chocolate. I am sensitive to chocolate and I usually get cravings at night so I can’t eat the yummy cookie dough flavor. These are delicious ice creams though, and I always enjoy your reviews.
I hear you Natalie, chocolate does get a bit overdone at times!
We used to purchase purely decadent vanilla non dairy ice cream in our local HEB store here in Sugar Land Texas. However they have not carried that flavor for some months now. Has purely decadent stopped making that flavor?
Looks like they still have it! See their website – http://sodeliciousdairyfree.com
Chocolate Obsession was the most delicious non-dairy ice-cream I have ever eaten! Target Store sold it, but has not re-stocked the product. What other retailers sell Purely Decadent? Is the brand name So Delicious non-dairy ice-cream & Purely Decadent non-dairy ice-cream made by the same company or are they separate companies? Purely Decadent is an incredible product and I hope someone can guide me to a retailer that sells this brand.
Hi Joanna, they are the same company. I’ve seen Purely Decadent at Whole Foods recently.
Hi my name is kyndra,
My brother in law and myself are both can’t have dairy and we tried Purely Decadent when we went up to out lake house which is in Chico. We loved it, but we live in Sonoma California and can’t find it in any stores. Do you know of some stores we should be looking at?
Hi Kyndra, I would see their website for a store locator – you can search by product.
I am looking for Purely Decadent Mint Chocolate Chip. I was getting
it at Whole Foods in Santa Rosa, California. They said it has been
discontinued. I will have withdrawals. Can you help me find it?
No idea! You’d need to contact So Delicious / Turtle Mountain directly. Their website is http://www.sodeliciousdairyfree.com
What happened to the Carrot Cake flavor?? I LOVED it and you don’t make it anymore? I want it back – it was awesome!! Your best flavor of all!!
please don’t discontinue the fruit sweetened chocolate almond frozen dessert, it;s the best! my whole foods store said they are no longer carrying it.
You have inspired me to try Purely Decadent again. The only flavor of theirs I’ve tried was the Cookie Avalanche, and it was very disappointing; far too sweet and with hardly any of the ‘cookies and cream’ flavor one expects based on how it looks. I disliked it so much that I threw away the rest of the pint, something I have never done before! But you give me hope that it is the exception to the rule.
