I have loved the Lactaid products ever since they came on the market. I have even encouraged supermarkets to carry it. There is a difference, however, between Chocolate and Vanilla. The Vanilla is perfect. It tastes great and is no compromise to regular ice cream products.
The Chocolate for me, has had issues and it's not with the taste, which is awesome. Every time I've had the Chocolate my intestines act up. I can't figure it out except that whatever Lactaid uses for chocolate is not pure dark chocolate. Essentially, the ingredients are the same as the Vanilla except for the chocolate.
My intestinal issues with Lactaid Chocolate are not as bad as eating regular dairy laden ice cream, which would be an immediate physical rejection. Rather, it is a slower onset and progresses into the next morning. I think Lactaid has a winner with the taste but should find another chocolate source. I'll stay with the Vanilla.
No, I would not recommend this product
