I scream, you scream, we all scream for (vegan) ice cream! We are excited to share the news that Los Angeles-based, low-calorie ice cream brand Halo Top Creamery’s is launching all-new vegan ice cream flavors. The coconut milk-based line includes seven flavors: Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate, Oatmeal Cookie, Sea Salt Caramel, Caramel Macchiato, Cinnamon Roll, and Chocolate Covered Banana. The flavors sound so yummy!
The new dairy-free line will be hitting shelves in mid-October. Yes, please!
With Häagen-Dazs and Breyer’s already in on the vegan ice cream game, not to mention Ben and Jerry’s line of vegan ice cream flavors, we aren’t surprised to see Halo Top coming out with their own line. In fact, Halo Top CEO Justin Woolverton told VegNews, “The number one request that we get from our fans is to make a non-dairy and vegan-friendly version of Halo Top.”
Consumer demand for milk alternatives is on the rise. People are becoming more concerned about their own health and are also coming to realize the impact that their food choices have on the planet and animals. As a result, they are actively looking for alternatives that can not only replace the traditional animal products they grew up with – but also surpass them in taste and quality as well. With the entire plant-based milk market expected to reach 16.3 billion in 2018, it seems like a total no-brainer that Halo Top would want to offer their own awesome non-dairy ice creams to meet this rising opportunity.
We can’t wait to try Halo Top’s new vegan ice cream flavors! To learn more about the environmental impact of our food choices as well as trends and developments in the plant-based food space, check out our podcast #EatForThePlanet with Nil Zacharias.
