In more vegan-friendly news, ice cream giants Ben and Jerry’s have announced the addition of vegan items to their product lines. The company has used almond milk to create the creamy texture of the sweet treats and vegans can enjoy non-dairy versions of P.B. & Cookies, Coffee Caramel Fudge, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Chunky Monkey.
However, currently these options are only available in the US, which is a real shame for the rest of us! Let’s hope that Ben and Jerry’s will realise that there are a great many people outside America who would love to enjoy their almond milk delights – vegans of twitter unite and tweet!
Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Guru Kirsten Schimoler commented: “Creating these new flavors with a Non-Dairy base composition that meets the high expectations of Ben & Jerry’s consumers was quite a challenge. We wanted to bring the same fun with all of the creamy, funky, and chunky swirls plus the Ben & Jerry’s flavor excitement to our Non-Dairy fans and we nailed it!”
