I can get behind a tagline like Dessert Your Guilt any day.
A tagline like that coming from a soft serve place? Now you’ve really got my attention.
Tasti D-Lite takes pride in it’s health factor.
No, it’s not frozen yogurt as it lacks the yogurt cultures (although they do offer a tart yogurt blend)
and there isn’t enough milk fat to actually call it ice cream.
That leaves us with the title of frozen dessert, which I must say is a bit vague.
Think ice cream made with skim milk… only creamy and delicious.
Tasti D-Lite is made with natural ingredients.
There are no artificial sweeteners.
They range from 70-100 calories for a 4 ounce serving,
and there are over 100 flavors (most of which are gluten free) to choose from.
You see, these stats are all wonderful but what it comes down to is the flavor.
Yeah, yeah, it’s the healthiest dessert, blah blah…. but does it taste good?
Yes it does!
I was originally going to photograph a chocolate one… but I forgot to take pictures before I ate the whole thing.
They offer 6 different flavors on tap daily (and yes, you can sample them) and the rest of the combinations are mixed to order.
Tasti D-Lite has been around since the late 80′s,
is huge on the East Coast and has made several debuts on shows like Sex and the City.
This is their first California store and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of them soon.
Even the pickiest palate is sure to like it.
After all, there are over 100 flavors and tons of toppings so you can create just about anything.
It’s sure to be a family favorite.
I loved the marshmallow which is really their equivalent to sweet cream.
If you’re looking for something more, you can order a custom blended quart to take home or you can try their other desserts from the freezer section.
I’m sold… head over there and let me know what you think.
