For years, Coconut Bliss Cookie Sandwiches have been making the rounds at small festivals where they have been well received. But a few years ago they finally hit the market.
They are basically ice cream sandwiches, but with several dietary and nutritious twists. They use a whole grain formula for their cookies and use unrefined sweeteners in the cookie dough. And oh yes, they’re not only dairy-free, but also vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and certified organic.

What others say…

Tried the chocolate one, normally $5.99 which is crazy… got it for $3.99 which is still crazy. The cookie is incredibly dry and brittle, you need a plate. Also tasteless, like ice cream… which is hard and tasteless. I would refuse to eat this in a prison cell, you need a lot of water when you consume whatever it’s supposed to be.
Great and guilt free!

These are absolutely DELICIOUS! I’m so surprised the other 2 reviewers disagree with this. They taste like cookie sandwiches that make your eyes swell when you look at them, but they’re actually GOOD FOR YOU. My local market is always in need of them because they are in such high demand!

I bought these because I have celiac disease and wanted to try something new. I ate it and immediately afterwards I felt sick and stayed up all night. The taste wasn’t even good.
NOT sweet, creamy, indulgent, luscious, luxurious. . . SO NOT worth it

I have fond memories of the occasional frozen treat: the chocolate wafer was just the perfect way to bring the delicious vanilla ice cream to your mouth. These cookies do NOT even remotely resemble them. They contain whole millet, and in this case they are frozen, which gives them an unexpected crunch and extra hardness – very disappointing – so different from the descriptions that come with the ice cream. They are in good health, which is good. But the wholesome flavor overpowers the vanilla. I would never buy these again, even at half the price – I will keep looking at the GF DF chocolate wafers filled with creamy, scrumptious, DF, soy-free vanilla ice cream. Oh, how I want one! It’s the thing I’ve missed the most in my 15 years of being a celiac DF. In addition, I reacted to these cookies. GF oats don’t work for many of us celiacs. I wonder which company will have a bright idea!

Depends on what you want. All things considered, it’s not too bad for a healthy snack. I didn’t like biting into hard millet seeds (is frozen very hard?) and frozen crunchy chocolate chips at all when I dream of those soft, smooth and delicious ice cream sandwiches (unhealthy ) that I miss. The cookie has quite a strong healthy flavor, and the ice cream tastes like coconut, definitely not vanilla as the box advertises (and I really don’t like coconut ice cream), only vanilla (the if applicable) is completely masked. Neither the texture nor the taste even remotely reminds me of an ice cream sandwich that I sometimes crave. If all I want is a healthy cookie, there are plenty of cheaper and better options. I had been so excited when I saw this, but it was a disappointment. Maybe the dark chocolate sandwich would be more what I’m looking for – does that flavor overpower both that healthy taste, as well as the coconut ice cream? But wait, is there frozen whole millet? This is the only GF ice cream sandwich I’ve found – in over 20 years – so maybe this is the start – I’ll watch what evolves next in the world of GF ice cream sandwiches . Until then, I’ll skip them. And these, I hope, won’t have GF oatmeal, because a lot of us non-dairy celiacs react to that. Just another reason to leave them alone – they’re not GF enough for me. I already have a stomach ache and it wasn’t worth it.
Sorry, Coconut Bliss, I wanted to write a glowing review.

I ate cookie dough ice cream and it made me feel terrible with headaches – blurred vision, brain fog – all day. This product should have a warning if it is “produced in a facility” with wheat – etc. – hemp must also be listed as an allergen – how can they say they are gluten free?☹️
