The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

Turtles All the Way Down ... the Gullet

Long, long ago, the dairy lobby got federal and state laws and regulations galore to ensure that no substitute product could ever be mistaken for the real thing. So the soy world is stuck with descriptions like "Organic Soy Delicious non-dairy frozen dessert of the chocolate chip variety."

It's a mouthful, albeit one that many people find flavorful. Like Sarah Jowett at the American Chronicle.

What it REALLY is, in simple terms, is an ice cream cookie sandwich with vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookies... but with no dairy products in the ice cream or cookies, and made with USDA certified organic ingredients.

Located in Oregon, Turtle Mountain has been making natural and organic dairy-free products that are distributed throughout the US and other countries like Japan and the UK since 1987. I am not sure this product is made anymore as it's no where on their web site but they do have regular organic non-dairy ice cream sandwiches in vanilla, chocolate, mint and Neapolitan.

So why write about then?

Never mind, I probably don't want to know the answer.

Anyway, Turtle Mountain products are found on the website.

They include the Its Soy Delicious, So Delicious, Purely Decadent, and Sweet Nothings brand names. I don't see any Soy Delicious cookie treats on the website either. In fact, the "ice cream" sandwich equivalents are from the So Delicious brand. Its Soy Delicious are all pints of non-dairy frozen dessert.

Products come and go. The cookies were first announced in 2002 and apparently have been discontinued since then. I'll be taking them off my Nondairy Milk Alternatives - Frozen Desserts page in my Product Clearinghouse.
