When I moved to the UK, I wasn’t sure what my dietary future was going to hold. I imagined eating a lot of chips (fries) would be in my future, but I wasn’t sure what else the country had to offer in terms of vegan fare. Then I ate Swedish Glace Vanilla ice cream, and I knew that everything was going to be alright. If I had to eat beans and toast for the whole year, I could at least take solace in the fact that I could go to the shop around the corner and pick up some delicious vegan ice cream.
Swedish Glace vanilla ice cream is so like the real thing that you have to check a third time to make sure it is vegan. It’s creamy, smooth, and vanilla-y, just like ice cream should be. I have even successfully made cherry coke floats which were sugar laden and heavenly. My only warning is that you need to pace yourself, because something this cheap, delicious, and accessible can lead to eating half a container and questioning where your life is going as your stomach aches from the sugary goodness.
Note: Swedish Glace has been bought by Unilever, a terrible company that tests on animals. You may chose to not buy this product because of this fact. Personally, I like to buy vegan products no matter who owns them in hopes that voting with my dollars (or pounds) will make vegan products more accessible and popular. Then they will gradually replace the non-vegan products and everything in the world will be vegan. It’s only a matter of time.
