Back in October of 2014, we told you guys about a Change.org petition begging Ben & Jerry’s to please, please, pretty please start churning out some non-dairy ice creams. And now, 28,000 signatures later, TIME reports that Ben & Jerry’s will be bringing four vegan ice cream flavors to the masses starting this month.
According to Ben & Jerry’s website, the non-dairy ice creams — Chunky Monkey, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Coffee Caramel Fudge, and P.B. & Cookies — are made with almond milk, and all the ingredients used in them are certified vegan through Vegan Action. But don’t get it twisted: A vegan food does not a health food make. The lowest-calorie option, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, rings in at 200 calories per serving, while the highest, P.B. & Cookies, will run you 290 calories per serving. So when plowing into your vegan pint, try to exert some self control. (I’m well aware that might be an impossible request.)
Pints should be rolling out in stores mid-February, so keep an eye out. And mean time, here are 15 spots around Philly that can satisfy your hankering for some vegan ice cream, stat.
