Temptation on the East Coast


Here’s some news I’ve been meaning to post about for the last couple of weeks.  In case you haven’t heard, the oft-talked about Temptation non-dairy dessert from Chicago Soy Dairy is now being distributed on the east coast.

As recently as September, the word I heard was “pretty much no chance” with regards to seeing it here in the DC area.  But apparently, the Connecticut wing of a major distributor in the east is carrying it.  My local health food store had chocolate chip cookie dough (verdict: MMMMMM!) and chocolate flavors and I was told that a large co-op in Maryland had most of the flavors available.

So, if your health food store or co-op doesn’t have it, place a special order.  As I’m sure you’ve heard, it’s well worth it.  The texture is very rich and creamy and Chicago Soy Dairy is the only company to use dedicated equipment throughout production.  That’s right: no “possible traces” of dairy!  Also cool: it’s not terribly expensive.  In fact, ’round these parts it’s a little cheaper than Soy Delicious.

    I guess I’m a bit spoiled down here in Atlanta. I’ve been able to purchase it at my local health food store for about 6 months or so. They’re only carrying 3 different flavors (Vanilla, Strawberry and my favorite, Mint Chocolate Chip), but I gladly drive out of my way to get some.

    The Coffee Temptation is my favorite. Whole Foods carries it in Minneapolis.

    Great blog, by the way!

    Any chance your local health food store is Mom’s? It has been too cold for me to think about looking in the freezer section, but if I know Temptation is there…

    And if it isn’t there now, I’ll make sure to request it of mom’s! They do have a pretty good vegan ice cream selection already, surely they can add to it!

    Deb, no not Mom’s, but I think it’s the other bigger health food store that’s not far from Mom’s — I’m totally blanking on the name… ask Terry @ PS — she was the one who found it there.

    Mom’s may have it, though.

    I’ve got to get off my bum and make my local places order this! (I’m in upstate NY)

    Sounds tempting. I love their Web site, quite cleverly done. And they’re kosher, too. Very nice!
