There are no words to describe the bliss upon discovering these vegan ice-cream sandwiches. So far, we’ve seen only two flavors, vanilla and dark chocolate. If you’re already a fan of Coconut Bliss, you know you’re in for a treat.

We tried the vanilla first, and of course, the coconut-milk ice cream was creamy and delicious, and refreshing.

What’s unexpected about this decadent dessert is that the cookie portion is rather healthy (not that there’s anything wrong with that). The cookie is made of sprouted brown rice flour and hemp seeds, which means it tastes a bit more like a granola bar than a cookie — but we didn’t have a problem with that; in fact, it made us feel rather virtuous.

The vanilla sandwich allows for more of the cookie flavor to come through; you’ll definitely taste the nutmeg and cinnamon. The dark chocolate variety is a bit more flavorful in the ice cream department, but the cookie isn’t the highlight.

For chocolate lovers, the dark chocolate is definitely the way to go; the rich flavor of the ice cream is the main attraction here, with the cookie providing a lovely texture, though its flavors don’t stand out quite as much as with the vanilla.

Our advice? Try both. It’s the only way to know for sure which you’ll love best, and well worth it.
