We Heart Coconut Bliss (Remembering Eugene – Pt. 2)

September 30, 2009

There are few things we love love love like we love love love Coconut Bliss. It is hands down, no ifs ands or buts, the BEST non-dairy ice cream on the market (and made in our beloved Eugene!). We are going to say this once, and only once, so pay close attention…all vegan ice creams are NOT created equal. We admit that there are some other yummy non-dairy frozen desserts out there, but nothing, and we mean nothing, comes close to Coconut Bliss.

The good folks at Luna & Larry’s (the creators of Coconut Bliss) were kind enough to send Wozzie a t-shirt for being such a fan. Say soy cheeeeeeeese!

wozcoconutbliss

In addition to the fabby shirt, they also sent coupons for their yummy dessert. Oh how we heart them! So, although we’d LOVE to use those coupons to get our little hands on the Bliss, we are going to pass along the happiness to YOU! We promised you a contest and here are the details to win a pint of any flavor Coconut Bliss your tummy desires. All you have to do is leave a comment telling us your favorite Coconut Bliss flavor and how you like to eat it (in a float? in a cookie sammie? in a bowl at 5 a.m.? You get the picture…) Haven’t tried the Bliss? No worries! Simply go to their site and pick a flavor you’d like to try and let us know why! We will be choosing TWO winners; one will be chosen at random from the comments and one will be for the most creative way to partake in the Coconut Bliss. We’ll be choosing the winners on October 10 (which happens to be Rahzh’s 4 year Veganniversary).

Still craving more Bliss…and really, who wouldn’t? Be sure to enter Luna & Larry’s A Night of Bliss contest! On November 7th, Coconut Bliss will be making people smile with fifty simultaneous parties across the United States. They’ll provide the Coconut Bliss and you host the party. Together you’ll create a critical mass of ecstasy that will ripple across the country, awakening joy and delight from Petaluma to Poughkeepsie. Not a bad way to spend an evening, eh? Click here for complete details. Be sure to hurry, the deadline has been slightly extended until October 7!

With so many ways to get your hands on Coconut Bliss, what are you waiting for?

NOM.

    My favorite flavor of Coconut Bliss is the Chocolate-Hazelnut and I like to eat it out of the pint with a fork.

    I’ve ALWAYS wanted to try their strawberry lemon flavor but I can never find it down here!!! Maybe I’ll get lucky? :)

    My favorite flavor of Coconut Bliss is the dark chocolate and I enjoy it with some organic locally grown raspberries and a glass of Malbec wine on the side. It’s the ultimate indulgence!

    • October 1, 2009 12:30 AM

      Mmmmmm we like the Malbecs! (And I really like the dark chocolate).

    The Chocolate-Hazelnut is making me drool!! I’d love to try that one for sure.

    Vanilla Island is my favorite. It’s a simple, sweet, delicious classic!

    All these comments are making me want some Coconut Bliss on my waffle!

    This is Kiley from the Coconut Bliss office and I absolutely love that picture-you should add it to our flickr fan pool!
    Thank you for the fantastic write up and sharing the love with everyone else! I can’t wait to start reviewing the Night of Bliss entries next week to pick the winners :)

    Congrats on the upcoming Veganniversary!

    A heaping scoop of Mint Galactica sandwiched between two homemade chocolate chip cookies :)

      Sounds delicious! I love Mint Galactica and chocolate chip cookies :)

    I have always wanted to try Coconut Bliss, but I can’t find it anywhere where I live. :(
    I’ve only seen the So Delicious Coconut ice cream… and while that is delicious, I’d much rather support a smaller company- especially one that uses fair trade ingredients!
    I would especially love to try the Chocolate Hazelnut ice cream… it sounds incredible! :)

      We’ve got a locator on the website; http://www.coconutbliss.com/locator if you come across a store that’s on there that doesn’t have it anymore feel free to send a shout my way and I’ll get a sales rep on it for you!

    All the flavors look luscious, but I think I’d like to try the Pineapple Coconut in pineapple juice; I bet it would make an awesome pina colada!

    I fully concur… no one can touch Coconut Bliss. Even the other coconut milk based vegan “ice creams” are good, but not **amazing** like Coconut Bliss.

    My favorite flavor(s) and how I like to eat them are;

    Naked or Vanilla as a sundae with my homemade vegan Chocolate Fudge sauce

    Dark Chocolate or Peanut Butter Chocolate – straight up!

    I would loooooooooooovve to try Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge! Just about all of them look “drool-ingly” delicious!

  14. October 1, 2009 10:59 PM

    Ooooh, what a tough one. So much bliss!

    How about…Mint Galactica while watching Battlestar Galactica on DVD?

  15. October 3, 2009 1:50 AM

    CHERRY AMARETTO! Straight out of the pint! It never occurred to me to try anything else, but that ginger ale float sounds amazing…

  16. October 3, 2009 3:50 PM

    Mint Galactica sounds like a dream come true. I’d love to try it all on it’s own.

    As much as I love the exhilarating combination of mint and chocolate, I think I love the chocolate-peanut butter even more, so that’s the flavor I’d choose to try. Those flavors together are like comfort food, rich and satisfying!

    We have one little store near us that carries Coconut Bliss, but I have never seen the Cherry Amaretto or the Cappuccino. I’d love either one of those with a nice vegan brownie. yum!

    • October 3, 2009 8:27 PM

      Have you used the locator on the CB site? sometimes places carry Coconut Bliss and people don’t even realize it. Or sometimes places start carrying it after you already checked.

      • karyn permalink
        October 4, 2009 1:10 PM

        Yes, the locator shows the same store that I buy it at already and I usually pester the store people at my regular grocery store, so its all good.

        I feel fortunate that its even available here since we are a very small town up in the mountains. There are a lot of products we cannot get up here.

    I like it naked. Don’t try to cover up the yummyness, my goodness.

  21. October 3, 2009 11:13 PM

    That’s a really cool idea! I love love love coconut bliss. My favorite vegan ice cream, no question. Unfortunately, I don’t think I could round up many interested folks here in the woods of Maine. More for me, I guess.

    Happy Mofo!

  22. October 4, 2009 12:36 AM

    Thanks for linking me to the contest! I’ve only tried the Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge, but I’m itching to try the Chocolate Peanut Butter. And I’m all for the KISS method of eating ice cream – keep it simple, stupid! :D

    Oh, and happy early Veganniversary!

    Yummmy! How do I get in?

  24. October 4, 2009 3:07 AM

    I love Coconut Bliss!!! My favorite indulgence is a scoop of Naked Bliss or Vanilla Island in a bowl of homemade, chilled mango soup, garnished with a bit of vanilla sugar. Yum!

    Hey! I haven’t had the joy of trying Coconut Bliss yet, although it sounds AMAZING! I will defaintly go searching for some tomorrow. I have always stuck with Soy Dream, which is pretty good. However they didn’t offer such unique flavors!

    As to how I would eat it, I beleive I would choose the naked almond fudge ontop of a coconut macaroon, drizzled with the slighest bit of chocolate drizzle on top! MMMMM!!!! Can’t wait till i get my hands on it!

  26. October 4, 2009 4:05 AM

    Never had it, but Chocolate PB, no contest!!! :) Thanks

    MMMMMM! Coconut Bliss in chocolate. Just pull it out of the freezeer and sit down to devor the whole pint. Just me and my spoon!

  28. October 4, 2009 8:20 AM

    Ah, I LOVE classic vanilla. Nothing better than vanilla ice cream over a warm vegan brownie!

  29. October 4, 2009 9:34 AM

    I’ve never had Coconut Bliss but I’ve always lusted after it. Its always been a bit out of my price range. But with the opportunity I would have to go for the naked, pure coconut. I love coconut and really, this just sounds divine. Nothing extraordinary or crazy, just pure orgasmic coconut.

  30. October 4, 2009 10:56 AM

    I’ve never had the opportunity to try Coconut Bliss, so I’ll have to hope for luck of the draw…and wow, chocolate hazelnut fudge sounds heavenly.

    The chocolate peanut butter is my favorite!

  32. October 4, 2009 1:04 PM

    I would wait for my husband to leave for work and then eat the chocolate hazelnut fudge, slowly, savoring every bite. If he was home I’d have to share :-)

    October 4, 2009 3:36 PM

    well, my favorite flavor is the cappuccino, possibly because the best way to eat coconut bliss is to have a scoop of naked coconut with a shot or two of espresso over it–but i’ve only been lucky enough to have that once.
    (i’ve also loved eating it in a little cup while oogling other decadent vegan desserts at eugene’s own sweet life!)

    My daughter and I adore and treasure the Coconut Bliss flavor of Cappuccino and we love to enjoy it in the evening right out of the pint! Not only does bonding occur but blissful smiles are exchanged!

    thanks for the contest! I’d love to try the chocolate peanut butter flavor–I have not seen this flavor in my co-op yet, and it is such a classic, comforting pairing that would be so soothing as the weather changes and the days shorten.

  36. October 5, 2009 1:48 PM

    chocolate peanut butter…. best flavor combos, ever!

  37. roxanne permalink
    October 5, 2009 1:53 PM

    I like to let the Cherry Amaretto set out a bit to soften, then I dig around and eat the cherry bits. After stirring I like to savor the ice cream last.

    I’d like to try the Cappuccino, Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge, Naked Almond Fudge and Chocolate Peanut Butter!

  38. Kala permalink
    October 5, 2009 6:05 PM

    My favorite is the Mint Galactica and I love to eat it straight out the pint with a spoon :)

  39. October 5, 2009 10:05 PM

    wow! I went to their website, and I hadn’t realized how many flavors they had! I’ve only tried the cherry amaretto, but it was amazing. It sounds boring but I think I’d like the naked coconut best, but also would love to try the pineapple coconut for tropical sundaes.

    I once got a pint of their Chocolate Peanut Butter as an impulse buy while visiting a friend and then proceeded to eat it for breakfast the next day when I found out the friend didn’t have any other vegan breakfast options in his house. Outside of the Chocolate Peanut Butter, the Cherry Amaretto has often been tempting, but what I really want to try are the Dark Chocolate Bars. Haven’t seen ‘em around where I live though.

  41. October 6, 2009 3:10 AM

    I would love to love some Strawberry Lemon Love!

    • October 6, 2009 9:15 AM

      Sadly they are in the process of discontinuing that flavor (by the end of 2009)

    I would love to try the pineapple coconut. I have two little guys with food allergies that keep them from enjoying treats with dairy and eggs as ingredients. While we have been trying one of the guys on lots of soy based items, we are a bit afraid that he is reacting to the soy too. Please pick us! I can’t wait to get some for the boys to try. :9

  44. October 6, 2009 11:57 AM

    I haven’t had bliss yet so cannot pick a fav! ={ But the Mint Galactica sounds as if it be yummy with a brownie! SO PICK ME PICK ME so I can get a taste =b

    I’d love to try the dark chocolate flavor. I find that the chocolate helps my migranes and this would add my health as well as satisfying my senses. :)

  46. October 6, 2009 2:38 PM

    This past weekend I was at CHFA Expo East and found out that Coconut Bliss is coming to Canada in February. I was so thrilled and will be posting about this find on my blog today. I can’t wait to try the Mint Galactica. I suggest grabbing a little spoonful just before heading out the door for a run. It will give you a little boost and you’ll run home faster knowing there is more in the freezer.

    • October 6, 2009 3:51 PM

      That might just make me want to stay home and eat the Bliss ;)

    I haven’t had the joy of trying this yet, but I feel like I absolutely have to try the Naked Almond Fudge. That sounds so so so good!!!! I like to make cookie sandwiches, but not having tried this yet, I’m not sure what cookie I’d pair it with — perhaps I’d have to make a new cookie ;)

    My favorite is Cappuccino and I use it to make my vegan frozen pies.I have a non-vegan hubby who loves this bigtime.

  49. October 8, 2009 2:55 AM

    well, I’ve never tried Coconut Bliss… but if I won a coupon, I’d *definitely* use it for Chocolate Hazelnut. Back when I lived in Italy, pregan, I used to eat tons of gelato, and my most favorite was always one scoop of chocolate and one scoop of hazelnut. I find that the hazelnut is under-appreciated here in the US, and this makes me and my tastebuds sad.

  50. Melissa permalink
    October 9, 2009 7:13 PM

    I’ve never tried Coconut Bliss and they all sound so good! I think I’d have to go with Cappucino, and I’d put it into a banana split. Yum!

  51. October 10, 2009 4:59 AM

    Which flavor to try? Dark chocolate would be deeply satisfying and oh-so-decadent with the creamy coconut undertone. But how can you pass up impossibly creamy cappucino? And well you can’t pass by Naked Almond Fudge, it’d be wrong. Must try all flavors as soon as possible, but especially these three. Did you really expect anyone to choose a single flavor to try??

  52. October 10, 2009 7:17 PM

    Winners will be chosen and posted soon.

  53. October 10, 2009 11:17 PM

    Naked Almond Fudge is delightful enough
