These are the simple Tasti Truths.
Some think it’s all too good to be true. But they’re wrong.
What is Tasti D-Lite?
Tasti D-Lite is a dairy-based soft serve frozen dessert. Not frozen yogurt, because it doesn’t contain fermented yogurt cultures. Not ice cream, because it contains less than 10% butter fat.
What’s in Tasti D-Lite?
- Vanilla dairy base made with all-natural ingredients: water, nonfat milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, guar gum, locust bean gum, carrageenan, vanilla.
- Chocolate dairy base made with all-natural ingredients: water, nonfat milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, cocoa (processed with alkali), guar gum, locust bean gum, carrageenan.
- Flavors: Made from a variety of the finest ingredients.
How many calories are in Tasti D-Lite?
Fewer than you probably think. Depending on the flavor, Tasti D-Lite has between 70 and 100 calories per 4 fluid ounce serving (most flavors have 70 calories per 4 fluid ounce serving). That’s about the same as in two rice cakes—with a heck of a lot more flavor. To find out the calorie content for each flavor, visit the Flavor & Facts menu.
How much fat does Tasti contain?
It’s downright skinny. Most flavors contain 1.5 grams of fat per 4 fluid ounce serving; none have more than 3 grams per 4 fluid ounce serving.
How many carbs?
Most flavors contain 13 grams per 4 fluid ounce serving.
How much sugar is in Tasti D-Lite and how does that compare to other frozen treats?
Great question! Most Tasti flavors have just 12 grams of sugar per 4 fluid ounce serving. Two leading frozen yogurt brands publish 18-21 grams of sugar per 4 fluid ounce serving on their website. And one of the top ice cream brands lists 22 grams of sugar in a half cup serving for one of their popular flavors. So we stack up pretty well. I guess that’s one of the reasons why our customers love us so much and why we’ve been around for more than 20 years!
Is Tasti D-Lite a diet food?
It tastes so good, nobody would ever call it “diet”. Tasti D-Lite is for everybody. Made with the finest ingredients, it’s just smarter than your average frozen dessert. But if you’re on a strictly controlled diet, Tasti D-Lite can be a smart snack to curb hunger or a light, sensible meal replacement. Nutritional information varies by flavor. You may substitute a 4 fluid-ounce serving of any category 1 flavor for 1/2 milk and 1/2 non-citrus fruit, which is equivalent to 1 point.
Is Tasti D-Lite kosher?
The Tasti D-Lite proprietary base mixes and syrups which create Tasti D-Lite are certified kosher in their original package from the manufacturer. The dry toppings, which are sourced from several suppliers, are certified by a variety of supervising organizations. Several of our centers are under rabbinical supervision, meaning that the products sold in that particular location are certified kosher when served to you. Please confirm kosher status of the products and location with the manager of the center you visit.
What flavors do you carry?
We have a long list of more than 100 creamy delicious flavors. Please view our list of flavors under “Tasti Treats” and also check out our monthly flavor menus for specific locations.
What makes Tasti so creamy and delicious?
That’s the one secret we won’t tell. Tasti D-Lite base mixes use a proprietary formula with a unique balance of the finest natural ingredients. Unlike other lower calorie and lower fat frozen desserts that leave an unpleasant aftertaste (or worse, no taste), our formula makes Tasti D-Lite smooth and creamy like ice cream, without the nutritional drawbacks.

Our small size is 4 fluid ounces, regular is 8 fluid ounces and large is 12 fluid ounces. If you’re concerned about your calorie intake, just let us know when you order.
