Coconut Bliss - Review and Giveaway!
Ok, I've been super excited about this review and giveaway for a while, it's for one of my favorite things in the world, Coconut Bliss ice cream! I've been eating vegan ice cream for decades - not because I've been vegan that long, I've only been vegan for nine years, but because it tastes good. Over the years it's been fun to watch vegan ice cream grow up and become more sophisticated with tons of flavors, bases, and new companies. My favorites have changed over the years but Coconut Bliss is by far the best ice cream I've ever had for several reasons - it's delicious, the texture is perfect, and it's healthier for you than most other ice creams. The ice cream is made from a base of organic coconut and agave (a sweetener that comes from the agave plant). But just because it's made from coconut doesn't mean it has an overpowering coconut flavor. In flavors like Mint Galactica and Chocolate Peanut Butter, the coconut flavor is extremely subtle.
With the free coupons that Coconut Bliss sent for me so I could review the ice cream (this is not the first time I've had their ice cream, I've bought it many many times before) I picked up a pint in Chocolate Peanut Butter and Cherry Amaretto. I'd never had the Chocolate Peanut Butter and had only had the cherry once before. First, the Chocolate:
The Cherry Amaretto is one of my faves (my #1 fave is Mint Galactica!) - I love cherries and ice cream so it's perfect. My husband however, usually hates all things cherry but he loves this flavor too, that's because it's natural cherry, not red # whatever like some ice creams use. This baby has real chunks of delicious cherries swirled in, so delicious and refreshing.
Ok, you guys ready to win a pint for yourselves? Coconut Bliss was generous enough to send me two coupons to give away to my lovely readers - so two winners will receive a coupon for a free pint in any flavor! Use it wherever they carry Coconut Bliss (Target and Whole Foods are good bets, but you can also check their website for more locations).
