I’m really excited for the brand new vegan creamery that opened up in Vancouver (Yaletown) called Nice Vice. Why would I be excited?!?! Why not….
- I can’t wait to try some amazing new vegan ice creams! I’m going to be overwhelmed with the amount of ice cream choices, but that’s a good thing! As you probably already know, there isn’t a whole lot of vegan options at the supermarket, at least in comparison with dairy ice cream. At this point, I’m not used to having much of a choice, but now with all these choices I can feel “normal” again. Well, a “normal” ice cream consumer that is hahaha.
- The world is changing slowly but surely. I’m beginning to feel hope this world. With Hellman is making their own vegan mayo and Ben & Jerry’s releasing their four vegan flavours, everyone is getting on the vegan bandwagon. That’s great! Even if the company’s intent is not based of the ethical aspects of veganism, at least there are new vegan options for not just vegans but potential vegans, the lactose intolerant, and everyone else. More vegan options means more potential vegans feel like they could transition! Haha I’m getting carried away!!!! Going back to Nice Vice, I’m extremely thrilled that this creamery is 100% vegan, not to mention Non-GMO, gluten-free, organic, soy-free etc. So everyone can enjoy!
- It’s a new place to hang out. Along the same lines as above, it’s a great place for vegans to take their non-vegans friends and family where everyone can hang out and enjoy food together without contributing to animal products. Quality vegan food demonstrates that foods which we enjoy can be made without animal products. It’s a great way to introduce someone to veganism. Plus, it’s a cool date idea 😉 Can’t wait to go with Clark sometime soon!
Sadly, although I’m really excited to go, this ice cream will be out of my budget (I’m a student). However, I do plan to go in the near future to treat myself! Possibly go on rare occasions… haha….to celebrate! Why not? When finally do try Nice Vice, I’ll post a review! Until then, you can learn more about Nice Vice here! Have a nice week!
