Last month, Graeter’s Ice Cream announced the launch of six new vegan ice cream flavors, the first in the company’s history. By using animal-free dairy proteins, the “Perfect Indulgence” line—black cherry chocolate chip, chocolate, chocolate chip, cookies & cream, mint chocolate chip, and Oregon strawberry—caters to ice cream lovers who are vegan or unable to eat dairy. With the launch, the 150-year-old ice cream chain joined these local stores that offer vegan frozen treats.
