After hinting about the possibility of vegan-friendly ice cream for quite some time, Ben & Jerry's has now released a new line of dairy-free frozen desserts. While it may be the middle of winter, vegans everywhere are rejoicing over the delicious new ice cream flavors.
The new dairy-free desserts from Ben & Jerry's come in four delicious flavors, which include Chunky Monkey, P.B. & Cookies, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Coffee Caramel Fudge. All of these flavors are based on classic Ben & Jerry's products, except for the Coffee Caramel Fudge variety, which was created specifically for dairy-free consumers. All of the ice creams are made from vegan-friendly ingredients such as almond milk and vegan brownies from New York's Greyston Bakery.
The move represents a major shift in the food industry in that mainstream brands are now expanding their offerings to compete with niche companies.
