It's been a long time since I've had the misfortune to try a non-dairy dessert, but for the good of all the people who can't have dairy, I offer up my horribly biased opinion of Tofutti.
That's right my fellow ice cream lovers, there is Tofutti in my freezer. As the name implies, there is Tofu in this treat, but don't fret just yet. The dessert is actually water, sugar, corn oil, corn syrup solids, soy protein, TOFU, cocoa butter, etc etc. So tofu is just part of the equation and not the whole thing. The good news here is there is no brown rice syrup and no tapioca syrup.
I took a big spoon and tried a bite. Hmmm. I took a second bite. Hmmmm. I dumped a few small spoonfuls into a tiny bowl and began to dig in. It's weird, very weird, but it's way better than that So Delicious junk. It has a very potent smell, but it matches the taste. The best way I can describe it is that it tastes like frozen vanilla cake batter. And it's not mild either, it's a full on, full tilt, full throttle, pedal to the metal, batter flavor that is assaulting my senses.
Hmmmm, maybe that is the Tofutti plan. You are so thrown off by the flavor that it's hard to focus on texture and creaminess. It makes sense really. At least they are trying, and that's always appreciated.
It's no ice cream, but I'm curious to see how a few bites will taste after I've had more time to reflect on what I've tried. We'll leave the final verdict to the second scoop.
