The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at www.stevecarper.com/li 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 Smashwords.com or Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com 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.

Yours Truly by Tofutti

"Crunchy sugar cones lined with rich chocolate, topped with smooth creamy vanilla and dipped in a thick chocolate coating with chocolate cookie crunchies."

Sounds good? Notice what isn't mentioned? Well, what goes in sugar cones? Ice cream, of course. In fact, this sounds exactly like Nestle's Drumsticks. "Creamy vanilla dipped in a rich, extra-thick chocolatey coating—all in a crispy, chocolatey-lined sugar cone with a chocolatey surprise." Hmmm. That doesn't mention ice cream either, now that I look at it. (Technically, it isn't. The first ingredient is whey, not milk or cream. Surprise.) Whatever Drumsticks might be, though, they're certainly dairy.

Not Yours Truly by Tofutti, though. Like all Tofutti products it's non-dairy, even parve, made from corn and soy oil, soy protein, and tofu powder. Tofu powder! Who knew you could powder tofu?

You should be expecting a picture now. Certainly a link. You're not going to get one. That's because that's not even a hint of a mention of Yours Truly cones on the Tofutti website. I can find mentions of the product on the Internet dating back to last August, but no pictures at all. Even more oddly, the Canadian Tofutti site does mention it.

Yours Truly Cones

Why is this odd? The cones are the only product not listed on the ingredients page.

Yours Truly by Tofutti. Mystery cones, creamy vanilla smothered in an enigma, dipped in a conundrum, and sprinkled with mystification.

UPDATE: A review of Yours Truly cones can be found here.

I had these at a friend's, thought they were absolutely delicious, but need to know where to obtain them in Southern California. I looked at Ralph's and Albertson's, and neither store had them. Please let me know where to find them.

I would like to know which stores carry the Yours Truly by Tofutti ice cream cones, milk-free. Thank you.
