They have it in a shop in Brighton in the UK but it's the only place I've seen it here and now I'm addicted they seem to be reducing their stocks!

i really didn't like the vanilla ice cream in the Soy Delicious choc ices i tried (they sell them in Holland & Barrett). it's put me off trying the other flavours.

Don't be put off!! You just had plain vanilla--you need to try a REAL flavor! I LOVE Peanut Butter ZigZag, Cherry Nirvana, Mint Chocolate Chip---try one of those!

those flavours aren't easy to get hold of in the UK, if at all. :( i've heard the mint flavour can be found in a shop near me but i've never seen it there myself. ice cream imported from the US is so expensive here.

cedar, aren't normal ice cream cones vegan? i haven't looked but i'm thinking there must be some brands that are suitable. have you tried supermarkets, Holland & Barrett etc?

yes i have gorilla, both the cheapo or the more expensive 'askeys' waffle cone seem to have milk in them.

never seen them in h&b.

that's annoying! :mad: yet another product that i doubt actually really needs to have milk in it. i have a feeling H&B may sell some sort of gluten/dairy-free ones or something, sorry very vague i know! i'm going shopping tomorrow so i may have to see if there is such a thing as a vegan ice cream cone.

Vegan looking cones are out there in supermarkets, can't remember any brands at the moment thou. Askeys *used* (about 6 years ago) to sell decent waffle cones that only contained vegan ingredients, but they have milk products in now.

I'm craving ice cream now.

Maybe when/if I go to the eye glasses shop, I'll pop in to the supermarket too. I love So Delicious fudge bars. You can't even taste the soy in them.

Hello Cedarblue...I've looked on the internet for you and found this website www.goodnessdirect.co.uk (http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk). They advertise Barkat Ice Cream Cones and say they are Dairy/Gluten/Wheat free. Bit costly though at 3.95 for 24! Hope that helps. :D x

Tofutti - Butter Pecan
It tastes like butterscotch and the pecans taste like they've been roasted...
It's so delicious! :D
EDIT: Oh, and tofutti has the best texture out of all the brands I've tried. Very light and fluffy.

My favorite is probably Tofutti! They also have ice cream sandwiches called Tofutti Cuties and choclate covered vanilla ice cream on a stick called Hip Hip Hooray.

Other good ones are Soy Dream and Soy Delicious. There is a rice-based one, called Rice Dream, which I don't really like - I find it has an aftertaste.

OH MY GOODNESS I tried the Tofutti Cuties ice cream sanwich last night and nearly died it was sooooo yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently Nestles 102 Dalmations ice cream is vegan so that must taste rather nice.
But, Swedice Glace Ice cream is the best! It comes in vanilla, strawberry and chocolate.. I got mine from Tesco but they sell it at health stores too!

i love the tofutti icecream. here in denmark you can get chocolate, vanilla, mocca (my fav) and strawberry. then you can get a mix of, i think it is, strawberry, vanilla and pear? never tried that one, though.
i like the cones too, and the cuties. haven't seen that since summertime, but then they'll have it back soon:) i looove icecream.

we also have VERY nice icecream shop here, which has ordinary dairybased icecream, and ten they have THE BEST vegan sorbets i've ever tasted. and they have all kinds of flavours; berries, elderflower, apple, lemon, lime, orange and whatever. it's soooo good.

I used to like Tofutti coffee marshmallow but it was discontinued a few years back.

There is such a choice of fab vegan ice cream in the States, it puts our small selection to shame. :mad: For a while I could get Soy Delicious chocolate madness (or something like that) in Brighton but they don't have it anymore.

I loved the Vanilla B-Nice ice cream I tried at the christmas without cruelty fayre. It's made out of rice too, so if you avoid soy or reduce the amount in your diet it's great!

At the risk of being told off again ;)


Apparently Nestles 102 Dalmations ice cream is vegan so that must taste rather nice.

For reasons found in the following link, quite a few people around here boycott nestle (http://www.babymilkaction.org/pages/boycott.html), irrelevant of products that may be vegan made by them.


i love the tofutti icecream

I understand the level to which vegans care about manufacturing techniques varies greatly and is up to the individual, however I should point to anyone reading that Tofutti themselves have admitted several times (including in a letter posted to this forum) that their non-organic products may use sugar processed with bone char.

I for one won't tell you off. It's useful and important information.
