Oatly Vanilla & Chocolate Non-dairy Frozen Desserts

Ready for more Oatly reviews? Well, too bad, we're doing it anyway!

Oatly Vanilla Non-dairy Frozen Dessert
Oatly Chocolate Non-dairy Frozen Dessert

Strangely enough, both pints had the same seal!

I see vanilla bean specs!
And chocolate has crystals

I try the chocolate first and it's a bit much. the vanilla is better but reminds me of oats. also reminds me of rice dream (which is what my son was looking for)

Decided to mix the two and it was a good choice. kind of a frosty texture and taste. 

Conclusion? I think the strawberry flavor worked better than either of these two flavors. Neither is bad, but I feel like that the strawberry flavor was a less jarring change from regular ice cream.

On Second Scoop: So I was eating some regular ice cream while my son was trying this again. He enjoyed it, but didn't eat a ton of it. I didn't want to waste, so finished his small bowl for him. Going from dairy ice cream to Oatly made it super obvious how much this stuff tastes like oats. It also made the texture difference stand out more (there's a weird glycol like slimyness to it... sorry, I know that sounds rough, but can't think of a better word at the moment). That said, I still think this is a nice, safe, non-dairy alternative and maybe one of the other flavors will click better.

Verdict?  meh
Buy Again?  meh

(need to add nutrition labels this weekend)
