Summertime is the ideal time for sweet, tasty, carry-around treats that cool you off and fill you up. Sugar Spell Scoops, the vegan ice cream shop has been appearing at events in Pittsburgh. Now, Sugar Spell will be sold at a brick and mortar location!
Owner Amanda Burk has been a vegan for 10 years. She yearned to create an ice cream company that not only features vegan ingredients, but also has ingredients that are as organic as possible. The ice cream at Sugar Spell Scoops is created from cashew milk, then sweetened with agave or organic sugar.
Beside creamy soft serves, she also plans to sell novelty treats and cakes, all made from cashew milk. Flavors include almond butter maple cookie, blueberry, cookie dough, blue moon, chocolate covered pretzel, Mexican hot chocolate and strawberry cheesecake, giving a whole new meaning to ice cream flavors. Customers will be able to get their treats on the go, or sit in with indoor and outdoor seating.
She told The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, “This ice cream thing has been in the back of my mind forever. Pittsburgh needs more vegan options.”
The website states, “The meaning behind Sugar Spell Scoops comes from the use of sugar and other sweeteners in magic to create powerful “sugar spells” which usher in happiness, love, good fortune and peace.”
Summertime and the ice cream is creamy!
