So Delicious WonderMilk Ice Cream Review
Vanilla Peanut Sundae
Taste Score: 6/10
This had a good amount of peanuts on the to (although I would have preferred them to be distributed more through out).
The chocolate was tasty, but also more concentrated in certain areas. (layered in the top and at the bottom of the cone.
By itself- I did not enjoy the ice cream very much. it was a bit watered down and had more of a coconut flavor (the vanilla was more subtle)-which I personally don’t like very much. However, the consistency was smooth!
The cone did have a large mass of chocolate at the end, which was tasty, but I would have preferred the chocolate to be throughout the cone instead. It leaves me wanting to drink a plant based milk after or eat the end first and than ice cream to balance it out lol!
Salted Caramel Sundae
Taste Score: 7/10
This one was a bit better! The caramel flavor seemed to mask the coconut tinted ice cream better.
The chocolate was enjoyable, but I thought it was too accumulated at the bottom (not enough at the top or throughout).
So while I did enjoy the caramel flavored ice cream better, as I continued to eat the cone, it was just a bit too much.
Like the other flavor, if the chocolate was more spread out through the cone, I think I would have enjoyed it more.
I will note though, that for both of these flavors, the cone held up pretty well, and was not as soggy as some other frozen vegan dessert cones I’ve tried!
As you can probably tell from the pictures, the cones are quite big!
I think that most people would feel like they’ve had a satisfying portion.
But you let me know your opinion!
Nutrition and Ingredients
So, these cones aren’t exactly a healthy (but I bet you didn’t expect that eh?).
Both flavors contribute a significant amount of added sugars and saturated fat (you can check out the amounts below).
A lot of that saturated fat likely comes from the coconut oil because it is the third ingredient (ingredients are listed in order of weight contributed toward the whole product). Some research suggests that coconut oil increases LDL cholesterol (a risk factor for heart disease) more than non tropical oils (1).
(P.S.: You can learn more about vegan fat sources in this article)
I can get why they used coconut oil in the dairy free recipe – it helps make the consistency creamy!
Like the the high amounts of added sugars, remember, this is just one food. It’s important to keep your overall diet in mind. I still enjoy desserts like these!
But I will not be buying them again, because I am not sure about the cocoa sourcing (you can learn more about the significance of this in my article here).
Vanilla Peanut Sundae
Here are the ingredients, and some of the nutrition facts as taken from the above picture of the nutrition facts for the Vanilla Peanut Sundae flavor:

Salted Caramel Sundae
I listed the ingredients and some of the nutrition facts as taken from the above picture (side of package of the Salted Caramel Sundae flavor)
“Ingredients: Filtered water, cane sugar, coconut oil, organic tapioca syrup, wheat flour, organic sunflower oil, chocolate liquor, rice starch, soy lecithin (emulsifier), pea protein, potato starch, cocoa (processed with alkali), salt, cocoa butter, natural flavor, guar gum, organic molasses, apple juice concentrate (for color), sodium citrate, caramel syrup, pectin, locust bean gum, calcium phosphate.”

I got these at Meijer for about $5.89 USD a package (same price for each flavor).
That’s about $1.96 per cone, which is quite expensive!
Would I Buy These Again?
No. While these were tasty, I’d prefer a treat with more transparency in cocoa sourcing.
- Pretty tasty overall!
- ice cream consistency was nice and smooth
- Would appreciate more transparency with the cocoa sourcing.
- Chocolate could have been dispersed throughout more evenly.
- High in saturated fat
- High in added sugars
