New Plant-Based Flavor Released from Granny Gothards! England

Kula Desserts Debuts 3 Gluten-Free Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches, United States

Kula Desserts’ new coconut-based frozen dessert sandwich flavors will cool you off this summer! Noticeably large and made with a thick layer of frozen dessert between two uniquely soft-baked gluten-free cookies, the sandwiches are also top 8 allergen free!

They’re making a splash in three different options:

  • Chocolate Chip: A thick layer of coconut-based vanilla frozen dessert loaded with shaved chocolate chips sandwiched between two drool-worthy chocolate chip cookies

  • Mint Chip & Cake: Kula’s signature coconut-based mint chip frozen dessert pressed between two soft-baked chocolate brownies

  • Strawberry Short Cookie: A thick layer of all-natural strawberry frozen dessert made with real fruit, nestled between two soft-baked vanilla blondies (Kula’s special new recipe)

You can find the new treats in retail stores at over 25 locations (such as Boney’s Bayside Market, Cardiff Seaside Market, Glowing Plant-Based Eatery, and Just Peachy Market) across Southern California, with more to come by the end of summer. The sizes range from 6.15-7.5oz.

New Epic Flavor from Plan(e)t Ice Cream! Greece

This innovative soft-serve frozen dessert (described by the brand as a plant-based yogurt) is unlike any "Greek white cheese" or "plant-based yogurt substitute" you have ever tried! Greek Yogurt No Sugar with bio-agave nectar and nuts is fully natural and lacking added sugars. As an added bonus, it comes with an edible, waste-free spoon!

The 100 percent plant-based product is currently only available in the Plan(e)t Ice Cream flagship store in central Athens.
