D-Lite Your Soul

Coffee Toffee with Dutch Chocolate was our first Tasti D-Lite (1707 Westheimer) experience, and by no means will it be our last. Nestled in the corner next to a Berryhill, this cozy franchise is a little difficult to find the first time.

Don't expect a huge, punch-you-in-the-face flavor at this "skim-milk-based dairy treat" establishment. Instead, enjoy a light, revitalizing, slightly less-sweet ice cream cone packed with a walloping 75 calories. The calorie count is where this dessert really outshines those shady frozen yogurt places popping up everywhere. This really is an almost not-bad-for-you option for your sweet tooth.

It's the subtle nuances of flavor we appreciated the most at Tasti-D. These cats will even let you pick your own flavor and make it for you right there on the spot, and it's available in larger pint-and quart-size containers to take home. With more than 100 flavors, making a choice can be a little intimidating. Luckily, we ran into a Tasti-D fan named John who compiled a list of must-have flavors for Eating Our Words.
