Vegan MoFo 2013:8 Tofutti Cuties – Key Lime

If you don’t know about my love affair with Tofutti Cutie ice cream sandwiches and summertime, you can read about it at its origin here. I’ve also tried the Mint Chocolate Chip ones, but while they were good, the Cookies n Cream are definitely our number one favorite. I had long heard good things about these key lime ones. Though they were fairly ubiquitous in Florida, I’d only really seen chocolate or vanilla at our Whole Foods or QFC in Seattle, since we moved here. (For the record, I prefer the vanilla of the two). After stuffing ourselves at Wayward yesterday (blog post tomorrow!), we decided to swing by Vegan Haven, which is conveniently located on the same block. Since we were heading straight home after, we were able to pick up some frozen treats for a change, and snagged these along with some other goodies.


I ate this in my preferred manner, which is after letting it sit on the counter for 5 minutes to get a bit melty. It really is bursting with key lime flavor, which is a nice thing considering I’ve yet to have a vegan key lime pie or lemon meringue pie. (PLEASE, if you have a good lemon meringue pie recipe, link or email me at your earliest convenience!!) However, I can’t help comparing them to our chocolate wafered hero, Mr. Cookies N Cream, and when I do that, these fall short. I think if you can put their perfection out of your mind for a sec, these are tasty in their own right though. Maybe it’s just that I wasn’t in the proper mood today, or that the other kind play more into my childhood nostalgia, but these didn’t blow my mind, and seemed just okay. But I do have 5 more in the freezer for further research… I’ll let you know if they do any further convincing.  🙂

What are your favorite vegan ice cream snacks?


Tofutti Cuties – Cookies ‘N Cream

Published September 4, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

I had been meaning to try Tofutti Cuties since I went vegan, mostly because of how much Alicia Silverstone talks about the mint chocolate chip ones in the kind diet. They may not be the healthiest vegan treat, but they are really pretty tiny, so how much damage can they really do? : ) Here’s a pic of one in my [small] hand for reference of their diminutive size.

Besides, it’s still summer, so you can totally get away with the, “but it’s so hot out!”, excuse. Believe me, you want to. These are SO GOOD!

I’d never had Tofutti ice cream until I went to that restaurant at Disney World recently, and it was pretty yummy. Have you had an ice cream sandwich in recent history? I hadn’t, and this totally took me back to the ones from school lunches. The ice cream was totally great, no weird soy aftertaste. The chocolate wafers were just how I remembered them from childhood. I mean, exactly. Just firm enough to give a good bite to the sandwich and mushy enough to just melt in your mouth with the ice cream goodness. Yum, yum, yum!
