Trader Joe’s Adds Boba-Filled Vegan Cold Brew Frozen Dessert

There was a time someone with severe lactose intolerance couldn’t enjoy a pint of coffee ice cream without getting a stomachache. Those days are long gone now, as brands have begun offering a plethora of non-dairy options in all sorts of flavors for those not about dairy.

Take Trader Joe’s new Cold Brew Coffee and Boba Coconut Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert. While this mouthful may give you brain freeze if you dive in too fast, there’s nothing about this robustly-named product that hasn’t piqued my coffee dessert-loving interest.

The brand’s newest flavor features a creamy coconut milk base, with the flavors of cold brew coffee made from Thai-grown Arabica coffee beans, and chewy tapioca pearls.

You can find this entirely vegan frozen dessert at the freezer section of your local Trader Joe’s.

When you’re at the Dairy Queen, one of the most refreshing treats you can indulge in is a milky sweet chocolate-covered Dilly Bar. For those who haven’t been able to fully enjoy the iconic Dilly Bar because of dairy restrictions, Dairy Queen has now launched a Non-Dairy Dilly Bar for everyone to enjoy.

Made with coconut milk and covered in a crunchy chocolate coating, the new variation of the Dilly Bar is completely vegan.

You can find it at participating Dairy Queen locations nationwide now as single serve orders or multipacks that come six in a box. Dairy Queen is currently offering drive-thru, takeout, and delivery options for anyone craving some! In-restaurant and outdoor dining is also starting to re-open depending on the state.

Pop Tarts Ice Cream Bars Are A Sweet And Refreshing Reality

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts are hands down my favorite flavor when it comes to choosing from the lineup. I imagine many will be delighted to see that flavor and texture transition over into ice cream bar form. Yes that’s right, Pop Tarts ice cream bars are a thing now and we’re all for it.

Partnering with Good Humor, the two brands created a new Pop Tarts Brown Sugar Cinnamon Frozen Dessert Bar. Put that sweet image in your mouth and nibble on it.

The bar features creamy vanilla flavored frozen dairy with a rich cinnamon core. It’s then topped with a coating of brown sugar cinnamon crumbles to create a crunchy, creamy bar.

Sounds kind of perfect, especially now that summer is quickly approaching.

You can find them now at available grocery retailers nationwide. Makes me wonder if they’ll ever do a s’mores flavor?

Brand Cravings What's New

Skittles Premieres New Sour Skittles-Infused Ice Cream Bars

As spring transitions to summer, so too do snack cravings. Gone are the big bags of sweets that are to be devoured under three blankets while watching movies. It’s time for ice cream. But, as we sit in the in-between period of the change — too hot for a sweater, but not hot enough for a t-shirt— a cravings crisis begins to form. Much like choosing an outfit, choosing the appropriate snack can be a downright challenge.

Enter, Crazy Sour Skittles Coolers, the hybrid ice cream-candy. 

The new treat is the latest in the candy’s ice cream bars, the first of which dropped last February. The premise remains the same: deliver the Skittles experience, but make it ice cream. Except now, the humble Sour Skittle is the star of the show. 

This is accomplished by dipping a fruit-flavored, Skittles-infused ice cream bar in a “sour fruit sorbet.” 

The results can be seen on the Instagram page @newfoodsuk, who reported the find at an Iceland Foods supermarket. 

The response to the account’s post were, unsurprisingly, mixed. But, it’s hard to imagine ice cream and candy not being good together (or at least good enough to try) so this seems like an easy move for candy fiends.

Unfortunately, this is a UK-only product, so any stateside Skittles fanatics will have to find something else to fulfill their cravings.

I’m sorry, Marshawn

Jason Derulo Has Gone Full Foodbeast During Quarantine And We’re Here For It

The quarantine life has us all on kitchen duty and results have been a mixed bag for many. Folks not used to their way around the kitchen have been forced to get acquainted while others may have found a second calling the way they’ve been giving full exec chef energy with some creative and delicious creations. Count one of those of the latter to be pop star Jason Derulo.

The “Want To Want Me” star has been making the most of being at home with entertaining TikTok videos that have him either showing off his renowned dance moves, doing funny skits, and most surprisingly of all, going full blown Foodbeast in the kitchen with some uber decadent recipe videos.

Celebrating 10 million followers on TikTok ! So I made this🤯

A post shared by Jason Derulo (@jasonderulo) on

In a series of TikTok and Instagram videos that have him celebrating million follower milestones, Derulo is seen concocting some pretty Foodbeast-worthy creations like skillet pancakes loaded with what looks to be the entire candy section of the movie theatre concession stand and French toast sticks loaded with all the sweetest breakfast cereal. In the video up top, he’s celebrating 16 million followers on TikTok by throwing together a chocolate pizza that’s got a caramel-glazed pizza crust and topped with what looks like Nutella, cookie dough, M&M’s, and chopped up Twix bars. Wow.

Look I’m not even mad that watching some of his recipes feels like my blood sugar is rising dramatically. I mean the man is out here living his best Foodbeast life and buying ovens with automatic pop-out trays — I support it!

La Monarca Bakery’s Horchata Cake Is The Very Definition of Moist

la monarca bakery horchata cake

Face it, many of us are coming out of this quarantine earning fresh and comfy extra poundage like a hibernating grizzly. Folks are either cooking up a storm like Gordon Ramsay in The Matrix (didn’t happen, but if it did good lord Mr. Smith you’re in for a sumptuous feast) or hitting up food delivery on the regular, so trust my theory holds weight. You know what else does? The Horchata Cake and Tres Leches Cake from La Monarca Bakery & Cafe.

With 12 locations throughout the greater Los Angeles area, La Monarca has Angelenos covered when it comes to sweet Mexican treats and unique coffee offerings. And what could be a sweeter form of indulgence than a Horchata Cake and Tres Leches Cake?

Their Tres Leches (translates to ‘three milks’) Cake is a Mexican classic: vanilla sponge cake with house made tres leches milk blend, topped with vanilla bean chantilly cream (fresh whipped cream w/sugar) and a dark chocolate ganache swirl, topped with preserved cherry.

La Monarca tres leches cake

Now for the Horchata Cake, they basically used the same principle of a Tres Leches Cake and soaked it with their house made horchata. It’s a novel and simple premise that executes perfectly, with each morsel of the cake being the very definition of moist. Each bite practically had my tastebuds splashing through the whole experience like it was the first day of summer at the community pool. It’s no wonder that La Monarca’s Horchata Cake is a best seller, with one Yelp user gushing, “It tastes like Mexican heaven.”

Now imagine pairing these cakes up with La Monarca’s signature cafe drinks like their Oatchata Latte or Tres Leches Latte and you’ve got yourself an ideal situation for any fan of irresistible cake and delicious coffee.
