The pleasure of an icy bonbon from Incredible Foods comes from its texture as well as flavor. A skin made of fresh cherry or blueberry, cocoa, or salted caramel enrobes a creamy vanilla, coconut-y center. The bite-size spheres are bracingly cold straight from the freezer. The company named the dessert “perfectly free,” and there’s a reason for this: They’re free from eight allergens — dairy, gluten, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, fish, and shellfish ($3.99 to $5.99 for 8). Made with coconut cream, they are a welcome treat for children and adults with food allergies. The Hyde Park company initially started as the Kendall Square incubator WikiFoods, whose aim is to create foods with edible packaging. The frozen bites give a dramatic look to a bowl of strawberries or blueberries or a fruit salad. The company also offers “perfectly free” frozen desserts in pints, rich with swirls, in flavors like caramel cafe, strawberry sundae, and fudge swirl ($3.99 to $5.99) that tastes similar to ice cream, but slightly lighter. Whirl a scoop or two in the blender for a non-dairy and allergen-free shake. Available at Shaw’s, Star Market, Whole Foods Market, Stop & Shop, and Market Basket.
