Other Flavors: A variety of soy-based, almond-based, and coconut-based ice creams.
Why We Love It: We don’t so much. We were so excited to try gluten-free cookies ‘n cream, but sadly the flavor didn’t taste anything like cookies ‘n cream, although the texture was pretty close. In general it just tasted like a sweet cold dessert, but with not a lot of flavor besides the sugar. We do, however, love their Turtle Trails and Peanut Butter Zig Zag flavors, just not this one so much.

Fun Fact: Turtle Mountain’s company name was inspired by a place in Nicaragua that borders the ocean, where sea turtles lay their eggs. Natives to the area refer to the place as Turtle Mountain. As part of its company mission, Turtle Mountain donates a portion of its profits to the Sea Turtle Restoration Project, an organization that seeks to protect endangered sea turtle populations around the world.
