Though these are more like soft cookies than cookie dough bites, it’s still a tasty treat worth trying.

These mini bites have coconut, chocolate chips, and gluten-free ingredients to satisfy any sweet tooth. If you’re especially craving some coconut, then this is the flavor you’ll most like.

If you’re a fan of the butter they serve at Texas Roadhouse, then you’ll love this new product.

This cinnamon honey butter is the perfect amount of sweetness for bagels, toast, rolls, and more. The taste was so delicious we even ate a bit of this butter all by itself.

Delicious dairy-free dessert options can be hard to come by, so this new item is a wonderful choice.

Walmart’s Bettergoods brand has a ton of oat milk options, and you can’t go wrong with this classic strawberry flavor. The oat milk gives it a creamy texture, and the strawberry is the perfect flavor for the summer, especially in a sundae.

Price: $2.97

If you hadn’t told us this was plant-based, we’d never know.

This Macaroni and Cheeze is more similar to Velveeta-style than Kraft, but it’s still a tasty side to any meal.

We paired it with seasoned chicken and veggies, and it perfectly complemented the dinner with a bit of dairy-free cheesy flavor.

Bettergoods Dulce de Leche Premium Ice Cream

Here’s a product that really wowed us with its flavor.

This butter has a nice blend of garlic, parmesan, and the slightest hint of basil for what just might become your new go-to cooking ingredient.

We tried it spread on a biscuit, and it truly elevated the flaky pastry to the next level.

Other Bettergoods items

Though many of their announced items aren’t yet in every store, you can expect even more delicious offerings under this new brand — with the promise of most items being priced under $5.

That includes plant-based options, like dairy-free mozzarella cheese and almond milk, as well as “culinary experiences,” including Creamy Corn Jalapeno Chowder and specialty seasonings.

This brand will also have a “made without” category that is geared toward certain diets, like gluten-free, and it will have a mix of products like pistachio nut butter, white meat chicken nuggets, and sweet cream dairy creamer.

Bottom line
