About two months ago my husband decided to stop drinking milk and convert to nondairy milk; we now drink almond breeze. He still consumes diary but no longer drinks 2 glasses of straight milk a day. About a month into it we ended up at the Ghirardelli discount store and ice cream parlor on highway five near Tracy, CA, I think, and I was in complete shock that he declined buying a sundae because of the milk.
Now that summer's here, and we're somewhat dairy free, I decided to treat us to some very cherry ice cream. We've had a sampling of dairy free, gluten free ice cream before but I had never purchased the Good Karma brand before. I tried out the very cherry flavor, and it is indeed very cherry. I was happy to find that it did not have any sort of lingering chalky taste that I've gotten with other brands of dairy free ice cream. It's just missing the chocolate chips from Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia, but otherwise it gets two thumbs up in flavor and texture.
Mike's thoughts: For a non dairy ice cream, I found it surprisingly rich and creamy. As Debbie said, the cherry flavor is very much there, right down to the cherry bits. I had no idea this ice cream was made with rice, and I bet it would fool a lot of people who are allergen-free.
