Canada Dropping Dairy with the First Vegan Ice Cream Storefront
Ice cream cravings are not to be taken lightly. Thankfully for vegans in Vancouver, the first dairy-free creamery in Canada has opened!
Nice Vice Creamery knows that going dairy free shouldn’t mean sacrificing everyone’s favourite cold treat. And with store-bought options gaining in popularity, we think they’ve found brick and mortar at the perfect time. Ice cream University grad (seriously) Chris White started the business with a mobile ice cream truck, and plans world domination with many more locations, and an entire fleet of vehicles.
But Nice Vice doesn’t just stop at dairy, everything they make is organic, and soy, allergen, GMO, and cholesterol-free. Kitschy-named flavours like Chocoholics Anonymous, Tripped Out Tropical, and Buzz’d Coffee will be available by the scoop in a bowl, vegan waffle cone, or as a sundae. They promise to offer 12 select flavours daily, and 4-6 seasonal ones. I’m hoping they hear my prayers and make s’mores ice cream this summer!
Still not sure if this ice cream meets your ethical standards? Chris wants you to know it’s all made with locally sourced ingredients, and served in recycled, organic, sustainable packaging. You might actually start feeling guilty if you don’t have this dessert.
With summer just around the corner, we see a sweet future for this cow-loving company. Finally, ethical vegans and the health conscious crowd can share a sundae and agree that dairy sucks.
