This one deploys a bold chocolate flavor that lets you know at first spoonful that it would like to extend a hand and make a proper introduction. To be slightly more specific, Joakim — our product development lead who moved from Malmo to New Jersey in order to bring his genius Oatly product innovation secrets to the US — says it tastes like a frozen creamy ganache of chocolate, without any malty/chocolate milk powder distractions. And that’s straight from the guy who created it, not website-writer-person marketing hype. So when you taste it, feel free to whisper “Thank you, Joakim” or, you know, whatever feels natural.
Oat base (water, oats), coconut oil, sugar, dextrose, glucose syrup, low erucic acid rapeseed oil, cocoa powder treated with alkali. Contains 2% or less of: mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids, locust bean gum, guar gum, sea salt.

Take the carton out of the freezer and start scooping away. Yes, the “sitting out on the counter” step has been innovated out of the vegan frozen dessert equation. Welcome to the future. (Pretty sure Joakim had something to do with this, too.)
A list of the non-amazing things a product doesn’t contain will, by the laws of marketing speak, end up in the “what’s amazing” section. Like this: No dairy, no nuts, no soy, no gluten, and non-GMO.
what might be less amazing
So we think it is less amazing that the laws of the land say we have to call this product “non-dairy frozen dessert” which is a pretty vague and slightly ridiculous name when you know what it is, and we know you know what it is, and once you taste this vegan, cold and creamy, um, “non-dairy frozen dessert” made from oats, you’ll find that the words you-know-what just naturally appear in your brain, leading you to call it by its rightful but highly illegal name anyway. It’s cool though, we’ll go with vegan “non-dairy frozen dessert,” but we just wanted to address the “large gray mammal” in the room and let everyone know we know you know we know what this stuff really is.
We only use what we really need to and we are proud of all our ingredients. For instance, without stabilizers/emulsifiers, the coconut oil and water would separate and you would not be here reading about a non-dairy frozen dessert on this webpage; in fact, this webpage wouldn’t even exist. How sad for everyone.
Our vegan non-dairy frozen desserts are made from amazing plant-based ingredients, but they don’t really have less calories than the old-school dairy version. That's why they’re good. The thing about fruit being nature’s candy? Nobody’s really buying that.
