Locally Made Hard Pack Vegan Ice Cream Available Now

Posted Feb 09 2013 6:30pm
Last August, one of my favorite Austin food establishments launched a Kickstarter campaign to expand their small business. Sweet Ritual specialized in vegan soft serve ice cream, and they were excellent at what they did. Their goal was to add hard pack ice cream to their offerings, which would provide customers with more flavors to choose from as well as the ability to take their products home with them. They were successfully crowd-funded the following month and their backers and loyal consumers have been watching their progress as they unroll their new flavors.

I had seven flavors to choose from including Cookies & Cream, Thin Mint Cookie, Strawberry Cheesecake, Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter Patty, Bananas Foster, and Rocky Road. The Thin Mint and Peanut Butter varieties were made with Girl Scout cookies, by the way!

After trying a sample, I got a two scoop bowl of the Strawberry Cheesecake. Described as "not as sweet," I had a feeling it would be up my alley. It wasn't overly sugary, but did, indeed, tasted similar to cheesecake. It had a nice strawberry swirl that was light and fruity, with graham cracker mixed in as well.

The other flavors looked equally delicious, with the Salted Caramel being soy-free. The original vanilla soft serve is still available, too, with a myriad of toppings and dessert building options.

Pints to go are currently $7.50. You can also take home their Fleur de Sel Caramel sauce for $4.25. Don't let the cold, dreary weather stop you! Vegan ice cream will make you feel better. And those Girl Scout cookie flavors won't be around for very long! Click below for more images
