The new vegan ice cream is posted on the Haagen-Dazs website, along with all of the ingredients.

Although it’s available at my local Target, I called another Target store nearby and they didn’t have it in stock yet, so be sure to call first.  Also, you can search on the Haagen-Dazs website for stores that carry it, but I noticed it wasn’t fully updated.

So if you don’t see a store listed near you, still call just to be sure! You might just be in luck.

If anyone out there still isn’t convinced that there’s a huge paradigm shift to all things vegan, the explosion of plant-based ice cream, made without ANY animal products, should convince you otherwise.

We’re not just talking about small mom and pop start-ups here; we’re talking Target, carrying a vegan ice cream made by Nestle, on the heels of Unilever’s launch of lots of vegan Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and an assortment of vegan Breyer’s Ice Cream, too.

Even So Delicious, maker of my favorite vegan ice cream: Cashew Milk Salted Caramel Cluster (YUM!) was snatched up by Danone, a french company which generates over 22 billion dollars a year in sales.

And get this: Just last month Danone announced they’re launching a multi-million dollar campaign to promote So Delicious vegan ice cream!

 

Yes, it’s always bittersweet when small companies get gobbled up by the big ones, snatching their smart ideas and products, but this is how the shift occurs, folks.  I’d rather small companies get gobbled up than have the animals get gobbled up, wouldn’t you?

 

According to Nielsen, in the 52 weeks ending April 29, U.S. non-dairy ice cream sales in the grocery and supercenter sectors surged 46%!

Soy Delicious Cashew Milk Ice CreamSo even if you don’t like ice cream (are there such people?), after all a bowl of fresh fruit is much healthier (tis’ true!), there’s something to be happy about here, folks!

The world is going vegan in a very delicious way. Enjoy!
