New Goat milk ice cream flavors

  • 22
  • Share

I was shopping the other day at Whole Food and found out that Laloo's has 2 new ice cream flavors Rumplemint and Capraccino. I bought both of them because I love Laloo's, Rumplemint is a great mint chip, chocolate peices that just melt in your mouth. The ice cream is green but does not look unnatural, it's a soft green. The Capraccino was a creamy coffee ice cream that was delicious. I think i will serve it at my next dinner party.
Had anyone else tried the new flavors yet?

  1. Thanks, Hello Kitty, for this information that I really don't want!
    Laloo's is really delicious! I especially like their ... actually, I have not had one that I don't like!!! The pumpkin is especially good, and their chocolate is very rich. I just think this company makes a fine product.

    Until your post, I was really trying hard not to go "there," but now I need to check out these new flavors that you have described so lusciously!

    1. Laloos? Coffee? Mint? WhoooooHoooo! *does the goatmilk ice cream dance of joy* I'm with Liu...evil information! Thanks for sharing!I love Laloos...found out about it through a blog written by a lactose-intolerant ice cream lover, and even though I can handle dairy, I'm all over new ice cream delights (especially when they are local to my area, Sonoma county...Laloo's goat herd lives in Petaluma I believe). My fav flavours so far are pumpkin and the chocolate and strawberry darling and...um...*twitch* Can't wait to try the two new ones!

      I think she has a new frozen yogurt flavour, raspberry, out now too. Very tasty. Tried it the other night, and I think I remember hearing that it was a new flavour.

        chocolateninja -- I share your subdued "WhooooooHooooooo!" enthusiasm!!!!

        Funny, I don't see their new flavors (mint chip and coffee as posted by Hello Kitty here) on their website. I do hope I will be able to find them.

        Have you tried their Molasses Tipsycake? DON'T! Oh my, oh my!

      2. Wasting no time, I scurried to Whole Foods today, but no new flavors. Perhaps their distribution is regional, and perhaps they are testing these new flavors in your area, Hello Kitty. These mint chip and capraccino flavors do not show yet on their website, so maybe it will be up to YOU to let them know how good these new flavors are by buying them out...then my store will carry them, too!

        You can be sure that I will keep checking, and thanks for the "heads up!"

        1. Dairy-intolerant or not, Lalaloo's is the best ice cream I've ever eaten. I'm going to check my Whole Foods tomorrow to see if they have the new flavors. Fingers are crossed. Thanks for the heads-up.

          1. Ooh, exciting update! I just talked to a friend who was picking up some other Laloo's flavours from my local Laloo pimp..ahem...provider, Traverso's Italian Deli in Santa Rosa, and he mentioned that Claudio (the guy who is in charge of the ice cream procurement for Traverso's) was contacted by Laloo's, or their distributor, about the new flavours and Claudio said yes, he definitely wants to get them. They were supposed to be delivered last week, but for some reason they haven't shown up yet. He's expecting them anytime now. The minute I get my hands on some, I'll be sure to report back...and if any of you are in my area, keep an eye on the dairy case at Traverso's. It's a great family-run business to support. (they also sell Ciao Bella gelato, and supposedly getting new flavours of those in soon as well, not to get too off-topic here. (: )

              I got my rumplemint and Capraccino in Petaluma, you can get it at Petaluma Market or the Whole Foods. I think Capraccino is my new favorite but Brownie and Clyde is a very close second.

              1. re: Hello Kitty

                OK -- it's not in my area yet...so now you REALLY need to report back, especially on the Brownie and Clyde frozen yogurt. I haven't seen that in our area, either.

                1. re: liu

                  You haven't tried Brownie and Clyde yet!!?? It's a vanilla frozen yogurt with fat free brownies. And it even has live active cultures its' great !!! They also have a raspberry one too but i have not tired that one yet because i don't like raspberries.

                  1. re: Hello Kitty

                    You know I would have tried it if I could have found it!
                    I am in Southern California and shopping at Gelson's, Whole Foods and Bristol Farms. All three of these stores carry a limited variety of Laloo's frozen treats. I have yet to find their frozen yogurt in any flavor, and I have not seen any of the new flavors that you have offered as a tease!

            2. I swear I saw a strawberry and balsamic Laloo's in the store the other day, and vowed to return for it -- and, alas, it was no longer there. Was I imagining things? Probably not -- so has anyone tried it?

                Ooh, you are talking about "Strawberry Darling" and no, you are not imagining things. Strawberry ice cream with a swirl of balsamic vinegar throughout. It is one of my favs. Sweet creamy strawberry, not overwhelmingly "goaty" (I've found some of the flavours are more "goaty" than others), and the swirl of balsamic is not too sour, nearly sweet, adds a great bite to the strawberry, compliments it very well. I've found that some containers have more of a swirl than others...I'm not sure if the balsamic swirl is still put in "by hand" or not. Very, very tasty stuff!

                If your store doesn't carry the flavour you desire, I highly recommend requesting it. (It might take multiple requests...but eventually they should get the picture that a certain flavour is in demand. (-: )

                Speaking of flavours, here is the current list from Laloo's website: http://www.goatmilkicecream.com/flavo...

                1. re: chocolateninja

                  I do not like strawberry ice cream in general so i have not tired it yet but maybe i will get it for my next dinner party. The other flavor that i have not tired yet is the Chocolate Cabernet. Has anyone tried that?

                  1. re: Hello Kitty

                    Chocolate Cabernet, Chocolate Hazelnut, and Black Mission Fig Laloo goat milk ice creams are my favorite flavors!! Do yourselves a favor and try them out now!!

              2. I just bought my first pint after reading this thread. My local Wild Oats had vanilla, fig, and pumpkin. I bought the fig, and it is delicious. I want the chocolate cappucino, and will hunt for it this weekend. Also, being a Weight Watchers member, I'm happy to report that it only has 75% of the points that regular ice cream has. Thanks for the 411!

                1. Success! Traverso's FINALLY got in their order of the two new Laloo's flavours: Capraccino (Capricorn is the sign of the goat, it's goat milk coffee flavoured ice cream...haha...I only got the name of it after I had stared at the carton for a while. Doh!) and Rumplemint. I've tried both and they are terrific!

                  The Capraccino is a nearly perfect coffee ice cream: it has the extra creaminess that I've noticed Laloo's has in comparison to other "gourmet" ice creams such as Hagen Daz, the coffee flavour was a perfect level and not overwhelming, and I think this is the least goaty flavoured of any Laloo's I've had yet. The pint didn't spend much time in the freezer in our house!

                  Rumplemint was just a great mint chip (one of my top fav ice cream flavours)...a bit of the goaty flavour (not overwhelming at all), and the mint was fresh and well, minty...good mint not a fake mint flavour. Chocolate chip bits were just the right size...not too tiny and not too chunky.

                  Double thumbs-up for Laloos from me! I hope these show up in a store near you soon!

                    This thread is very hard to read without weeping. My local Whole Foods only stocks vanilla, chocolate, and black mission fig. I'm so fixated on the chocolate, I haven't tried the fig. Any opinions?

                    1. re: Indy 67

                      Hello, Indy 67!
                      I am having the same difficulty finding all the flavors mentioned above...I just think they are teasing us so!
                      The black mission fig is very delicious, and it was the first LaLoo's that I tried long ago. Since then, of course, I have enjoyed several others! The only warning that I can offer is that sometimes certain flavors don't move well off the shelves, so I have tried a few cartons of various flavors that have been a little freezer burned. However, if you can be sure that you are buying fresh, the black mission fig is quite tasty, and you will definitely know that you are eating a goat milk chill. I actually like that grassy taste, although some might not.

                      1. re: Indy 67

                        The fig has been a great foil for summer fruits and I expect it will be great with sauteed apples as well, later.

                        1. re: Indy 67

                          I am a chocolate hazelnut lover, yet I'd have to say that out of Chocolate Cabernet, Chocolate Hazelnut, and Black Mission Fig, the fig flavor is my favorite! Go try it soon!!

                      2. I am glad to see these two new flavors -- Rumplemint and Capraccino -- on their website. I have not seen them in my stores yet, but I continue to search so that I can try these new flavors.

                        I have not met a flavor that I did not love, although their Molasses Tipsycake and Pumpkin Spice are two of my favorites.

                        Thanks to everyone who has kept this post current. Although I don't need any encouragement to buy their products, I do think LaLoo's well deserves all these rave reviews for making a great frozen delight.

                          This stuff is crazy! I have no issues with regular ice cream, but my mominlaw does.. so we bought her this for a special treat.

                          Holy CRAP is that tipsycake the best thing on the planet. I am glad I am frugal and it is expensive or I would have an addiction. Quite sweet, but in a 'this tastes really good' kinda way.. not just sugarpackets. Yum.

                          All this posting made me go & make little vegan oatmeal cookie chunks to put in our vanilla ice cream at home yesterday afternoon. Looking forward to our own version of the treat soon:)
