For two weeks we’ve been scouring every grocery store in the area for the legendary Ben & Jerry’s vegan ice cream.
We traveled far and wide, to Kroger, Earth Fare, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Food Lion, and even Walmart. But to no avail; the mythic vegan delicacies were nowhere to be found (in Cary), although numerous other Ben & Jerry’s flavors were prominently displayed.
After nearly giving up hope, we stumbled across this vision on the shelves of our local Target store:
An astounding offering of three cow-free ice creams! Coffee Caramel Fudge, Peanutbutter & Cookies, and Chocolate Fudge Brownie. All for $3.99 per pint (the same price as their usual ice creams). A little expensive, but still enticing enough for us (considering they are on sale from the suggested $4.99)
A little disappointing that there’s no mention of “vegan” on the product other than a tiny little “V” symbol buried in the fine print on the back. These pints are marketed as “dairy-free”. No doubt, there are more overweight diabetus-ridden lactose-intolerant Americans than there are vegans to market to. Wouldn’t want to spoil anyone’s fun by letting them know they’re eating vegan food.
Anyway, we bought a pint of Choco Fudge Brownie and rushed straight home.
and all is right with the world…
