What Is Tasti D-Lite? Tasti D-Lite is the world's leading provider of great-tasting, good-for-you frozen desserts. Our signature product is a soft-serve, dairy-based frozen dessert with an indulgent, creamy delicious taste. It's significantly lower in calories, fat, carbohydrates and sugar than traditional ice cream products. Yet the taste is rich and satisfying.
This is a new kind of product, created through science that harnesses nature's own technologies. Tasti D-Lite is not a "fad" concept. Our products are based on 20 years of experience, consumer testing, and street cred. Unlike other concepts, we offer healthy eaters a lot of healthy choices. Classic Tasti comes in more than 100 fabulous flavors, and we also make healthy shakes, sundaes, smoothies, and cakes. More healthy options—like added probiotics—and new products are still to come. It's easy for Tasti D-Lite to become a daily delight—for any day part.
Tasti Is On Track To Grow Fast. Tasti D-Lite is uniquely positioned to become an essential part of everybody's life. Because healthy eating isn't just a trend. It's taking off. Overall spending on reduced fat, carb, and calorie products is up $9 billion in the past 4 years (QSR One Source, "How America Eats," Nov. 2007). Consumers of all ages expect food to fulfill their dietary requirements while satisfying their appetites. They're steadily shifting from traditional or premium frozen desserts to lighter options.
