Wayfare Pudding is a Dairy-Free Snack in Ready-to-Eat Cups

0

It’s been over six years since I first reviewed Wayfare Pudding, and this dessert has gone through some changes. First, they ditched the Carob flavor and are focusing on their three most popular flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, and Butterscotch. Second, they changed the Wayfare dairy-free base. It used to be made with beans and several grains, but now it’s just organic butter beans and organic oats. Don’t let the beans deter you; this pudding really is a dessert-like treat!

Tasting Notes for WayFare Pudding

Wayfare has nearly perfected the consistency of their pudding. It’s very thick – like stand a small spoon in it thick. But it’s now perfectly creamy with a very smooth mouthfeel and a light richness. It isn’t exactly like that pudding you get from a box, but it is vegan, dairy-free, allergy-friendly, and made with far better ingredients.

Vanilla

I could see the vanilla pairing nicely with crushed cookies or fruit. It has a nice light sweetness and a gentle, but notable, infusion of warm vanilla. I’d call this one pleasant, but feel like it needs some complimentary flavors to help it pop.

Ingredients (Vegan & Non-GMO) – WayFare Dairy Free Base (water, organic butter beans, organic oats), organic cane sugar, coconut oil, wayfare natural flavors, gum arabic, sea salt, sunflower lecithin, calcium citrate, konjac root powder.

Butterscotch

I really like the warm flavor and smooth texture of this variety. It isn’t as “in your face” butterscotch as I remember from the prior formula. It’s mellower, but just flavorful enough with spot on sweetness.

Chocolate

This is my WOW flavor! I can’t quite tell what it reminds me of – maybe classic chocolate milk? Either way, it’s rich, chocolaty, and indulgent with the perfect balance of flavor and consistency. I sampled all three flavors at once, but kept going back to this one for more!
