Hooray! Hooray! Bars – a stevia sweetened surprise!

Did you know Tofutti Hooray! Hooray! Bars are sweetened with stevia? Stevia comes from the stevia plant and is the perfect all-natural, zero calorie alternative to sugar…and Tofutti was the first to use stevia in a frozen dessert!

Recently, Food Processing did a little write up on Hooray! Hooray! Here’s a bit:

Hooray! Hooray! Bars – a stevia sweetened surprise!“We’re thrilled to be the first to introduce a frozen dessert sweetened by 100% all natural, zero calorie stevia,” says David Mintz, CEO and founder of Tofutti Brands. “It tastes as good as cane sugar, without the highs and lows or the lingering after taste found in artificial sweeteners, and it’s made by Mother Nature!” he adds.

And in September, Prepared Foods magazine awarded Tofutti the Excellence in Innovation Award – Retail for the Hooray! Hooray! Bar. Hooray! Hooray! recognizes an important niche in the market: consumers who want a dairy-free dessert without all the sugar.

For more on Hooray! Hooray! Bars see our Frozen Desserts page.

30 years of Tofutti – and more to come!

Thirty years ago, Tofutti’s founder and CEO, David Mintz, came up with an idea to create a totally dairy free frozen dessert…and my, have we grown! Sure, we still make great frozen desserts, but Tofutti’s product line has expanded to include pizza, cream cheese, sour cream, blintzes, and more!

The Courier News did an article on Tofutti’s 30th birthday.

30 years of Tofutti – and more to come! Thirty years ago, [David] Mintz, a restaurant owner established the company, which sells more than 80 milk-free foods including frozen desserts, cheese products and prepared dishes. Available throughout the United States and in more than 30 countries, Tofutti Brands answers the call of millions of people who are allergic or intolerant to dairy, diabetic, kosher or vegan, as well as those who strive to maintain a healthier lowfat diet…

…Two of Tofutti’s such naturally sweet products that seem to impress and satisfy customers are the Chocolate Fudge Treat and the Black Gold ice cream bar. The Chocolate Fudge Treat, which is only 30 calories with no fat or sugar, is one of Canada’s favorite Tofutti must-haves. The Black Gold, popular with Europeans, contains a deep flavor savored by chocolate lovers.

And recently, Tofutti rolled out a dairy free ravioli stuffed with Tofutti Better Than Ricotta Cheese…a totally dairy free ricotta cheese!
