If you’re a true-blue vegan who still wanders over to the ice cream aisle at Whole Foods and stares longingly into the Ben & Jerry’s freezer, pining over pints of the company’s drool-worthy ice creams, you are not alone. Case in point: A couple in Charlottesville has started a petition on Change.org asking Ben & Jerry’s to please, please, pretty please, begin offering some sort of dairy-free ice cream option, and, as of right now, the petition has nearly 6,000 signatures.

And on the 8th day, there were affogatos.
On Friday August 15th and 30th the coffee lovers of Elixr Coffee and the sweet teeth at Little Baby’s Ice Cream are bringing back Affogato Days to South Sydenham Street.
What is an affogato you ask? It’s basically the divine marriage of hot, caffeinated espresso with frosty, creamy ice cream. When translated, the Italian drink literally means “drowned” referring to the dollop ice cream swimming in espresso. Yum- said every caffeine junkie and ice cream enthusiast everywhere.
The good people at Elixr Coffee want all of Philadelphia to experience this mouth-watering treat featuring Little Baby’s Ice Cream. The collaborators will choose two seasonal ice creams skillfully paired with two unique espressos for the affogato days special. Other great news? There will be both a dairy and vegan option available so everyone can bask in affogato greatness.

Little Baby’s Ice Cream has debuted a new commercial, “Eyes Scream.” In it, mouths replace the eyes in three models as a voiceover extols the virtues of Little Baby’s Philadelphia style ice cream. The new commercial attempts to one-up the original Little Baby’s ads, which the Huffington Post called “terrifying.”
