EUGENE, Ore. - January 6, 2020 - Whether you are dairy-free committed or dairy-free curious, Alden’s new dairy-free recipe is one that everyone can love. Crafted to be creamy and melt-in-your-mouth amazing, Alden’s Organic Dairy Free serves up true-to-flavor taste and texture. 

“Consumers are craving a dairy-free option that actually delivers an exceptional flavor filled experience,” says Joelle Simmons, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Alden’s Organic. “We saw an opportunity and worked through 29 variations to develop a more progressive, organic dairy-free recipe that upholds the high standards of our famous ice cream.” The unique recipe is a blend of brown rice, oat flour, coconut oil and pea protein that takes on the flavor profile of the organic ingredients inside.

The seven new dairy-free flavors (SRP: $5.49-$5.99) and two new dairy-free Sammies (SRP: $4.99-$5.49), that will be available in Sprouts, Natural Grocers, and National Co+Op Grocers in March 2020 are: 

  • Dairy Free Caramel Almond Crunch - Caramel frozen dessert with sweet organic caramel swirl, chocolate flakes and crunchy almonds
  • Dairy Free Muddy Brownie - Rich chocolate frozen dessert packed with decadent brownie pieces
  • Dairy Free Vanilla Bean - Creamy vanilla frozen dessert with flecks of organic vanilla bean

  • Dairy Free Cookie Crumble - Cookie frozen dessert blended with chocolate crème cookie crumbles 
  • Dairy Free Vanilla Bean Round Sammie - Bold vanilla bean frozen dessert scooped between two chocolate cookie wafers
  • Dairy Free Caramel Drizzle Round Sammie - Caramel frozen dessert swirled with organic caramel ribbons, sandwiched between two vanilla wafers

From dairy ice cream to dairy-free dessert, Alden’s is committed to making their products irresistible for all. “We know our consumers rely on us for our commitment to organic and providing a delicious treat that will spark a good time,” says Simmons. “With the new dairy-free line, we’ve created even more options that deliver on those promises to serve both new and existing consumers.”
