Escape to Turtle Mountain

Turtle Mountain has always been one of my favorite companies. First of all, everything they make is Vegan, no exceptions. How many companies can say that? Second of all, Turtle Mountain is an innovator. In the last 3 years they have created dozens of new products and introduced new ingredients to accommodate celiacs, diabetics and those with nut and soy allergies. I'd like to thank them for all the years they kept me stuffed and happy.

The So Delicious Minis line is great with a little something for everyone! My fav out of the three is probably the fruit bars. My girlfriend likes the Banana Split Bars just for the Banana Ice Cream, hint hint Turtle Mountain!

The O.G.'s of Turtle Mountain. I remember when the ice cream changed from Soy Delicious to So Delicious. At first I was thinking they botched something up but then I realized it was a conscious effort to move away from the "soy ice cream" tag. I still think their plain vanilla is the best out there. Oh and the Ice Cream Sandwiches are still a part of the cold regions of my freezer.

I've been trying the new Coconut Milk products with cereal and can't wait to try them with baking, coffee or whatever crazy thing I get talked into.

I'm one of those people that eat yogurt everyday. If you must know, I eat a pb sandwich, yogurt and chips at my first break at work. For as long as I can remember (2003?) I've had a Silk yogurt in my lunch box. Last month I switched to So Delicious yogurt because Silk has been hard and harder to find and to be honest, it just tastes better. It costs a little bit more but its worth it to me.

If you know me then you know I love this Cherry Nirvana to death! It reminds me of chocolate covered cherries, something I miss from my childhood. The one place in Omaha that has it is the Bakers on Saddle Creek. Whole Foods used to have it but now it's gone. WTF Whole Foods! And don't try to tell me the Cherry Amaretto is the same thing!!!

My runners up as far as ice creams go. Cookies and Cream has always been a favorite, does anyone NOT like Cookies and Cream? The Purely Decadent Cookie Dough is pure heaven, my second favorite to the Cherry Nirvana. Thanks Turtle Mountain for years of joy and many more to come!


  1. Thank you for the very tasty review, John! We're delighted that we are making your vegan life so much more delicious! ~Gail at Turtle Mountain

  2. I'm a huge fan of Cherry Nirvana, too! Let the store where you shop know that you want them to stock it. (That's what I had to do to make sure they carried my second fave-Turtle Trails.)

    Their banana split coconut milk mini sandwiches are like little bites of joy. And my chai has been taken to a whole new delicious level with their French Vanilla coconut milk creamer. Can't wait to see what these guys come up with next!

  3. Surprisingly enough, I don't think I have ever heard of Turtle Mountain, but it sounds pretty good to me! Gotta check it out :)

  4. You don't happen to know what happened to the SO DELICIOUS (soy) Cookie Avalanche? I love it soooooooooooooooooo much but haven't been able to find it for over a year. *tear*

  5. Adrienne, it was replaced by the Coconut Milk Cookies 'n Cream flavor.
