I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said that an all vegan ice cream truck would RULE the Summers in Seattle. So many times! I thought it could carry Tofutti Cuties, Yours Truly (like drumsticks), vegan fudge bars, frozen fruit bars, and all the vegan yums available. It was a dream. A pipe dream. A pie in the sky dream. Or was it?
Today friends, something BETTER than that dream is in the works in our town! The Seattle Cookie Counter plans to bring more than a dozen vegan ice cream flavors on vegan cookies to a mobile VW bus. That means hand crafted, more organic, wider variety, and locally owned vegan goodness. I feel faint. Really I do.
But before this little VW bus comes to your neighborhood, they are trying to raise some start up funds to help pay for some equipment, fixing up the bus, and paying for kitchen space rent while they get up and running. Starting a small business can be very expensive, but if we all chip in just a little – in exchange for a treat down the road – this can be a reality! REAL. NOT A DREAM.
Please help make my Seattle vegan dreams come true.
- Step 1: go like them on the FB, if you use the FB and tell your vegan-friendly friends.
- Step 2: go follow them on IG, if you use the IG @seattlecookiecounter
- Step 3: go pitch in a few bucks on Kick Starter and start planning how you’ll use your sweet rewards. Cookie vouchers anyone?
- Step 4: meet me there after you get your rewards to hang out with Chris and Chelsea. All vegan ice cream. All the time.
See you there eclair!
Oh, and for those of you who haven’t taken the vegan plunge, you must read up on why humans taking cows milk is a bad idea. Bad for us, our environment, and especially bad for mama and baby cows. Here are some resources: 8 Reasons to Stop Drinking Milk. The Milk Myth. Milk Facts. Don’t Dairy Cows Need To Be Milked? Health Concerns about Diary Products. What Happens on Dairy Farms (warning, real footage). Calves From Dairy Farms (warning, real footage).
Thank you Chelsea and Chris for making something yummy without animal exploitation!
