This week on the show, we talk about potato casserole and eat Strawberry Graham Oat Milk Ice Cream from Simple Truth.
We read a review!
Listener I Don't Want to Say says:
This pod is truly a delight! (Veggie Delite™?) I thought myself for many years to be a meat substitute sommelier, so it’s so great to hear there’s a welcoming community subculture regarding vegan taste-a-likes. Love Becky and Dave’s dynamic and their humor so much! There’s a familiarity to the whole show that makes it so easy and relaxing to listen to. Thank you for making my school commute 100x better.
Thank you, I Don't Want to Say! What an awesome review!

Target Oat Milk Ice Cream Bars
VegNews reports that Target is launching oat milk ice cream bars!
The bars are part of its new (not all vegan) line, Favorite Day to replace its older Archer Farms brand. The line is focused on budget, and these ice cream bars will be $4.49 for a four pack.
Wow wow wow!
There are going to be three vegan oat milk bars as part of the launch:
- Vanilla Salted Caramel
- Forest Fruit (a mixed berry situation)
Did I say wow wow wow yet? I want that Forest Fruit, please!
The line launches on April 5th, and we will pick these up to review as soon as we can get our hands on them.
We ate a potato casserole!
We have talked about my potato casserole before. It's basically a loaded baked potato, but in casserole form.
This week, though, I mixed things up! Instead of steaming or boiling the potato pieces, I air fried them.
Instead of all potato, I did half potato, half cauliflower florets. And it was a delight!
The potato and cauliflower got crispy in the air fryer, which was so nice paired with the creamy, melty cheese and the other baked potato toppings. Recommended!
Simple Truth Strawberry Graham Oat Milk Ice Cream
Dave got us this ice cream as part of our grocery order a few weeks ago. It's a strawberry oat milk ice cream with pieces of graham cracker in it.
Y'all, I loved this ice cream! It was soft and fluffy, and I thought the cookie-like graham cracker pieces paired up with that experience very well.
I will say that the strawberry flavor on this ice cream is mild. As Dave pointed out, we aren't talking about strawberry ice cream with big strawberry pieces here. This is more the "pink" strawberry ice cream, like you'd find in the strawberry portion of a Neapolitan.
Dave wasn't as big a fan. The kid and I get into this pint first, and apparently Dave's bowl was very light on the graham cracker pieces.
As a strawberry ice cream, he liked this a lot. But he was pretty bummed about the lack of graham pieces, since he was looking forward to those.
We will definitely get this ice cream again, though! The texture and flavor were great, even if the graham was a bit inconsistent from bowl to bowl.
