The folks at Try Vegan Week gave us Portlanders our first taste of Temptation Vegan Ice Cream this weekend at Vegfest. It was sold as a fundraiser for the informational week.
Ridiculously, on my way to the opening events, I crashed my bike and scraped up my right knee pretty badly. I now have some tough wounds and a story.
When I finally got Vegfest, I sat down with this waffle cone and felt better! Sure I was breaking out of the 'healthier' eating I've been doing lately, but for new vegan ice cream being sold for non-profit reasons? Yes, yes, yes.
My waffle cone was filled with cookie dough and mint chocolate chip. I also had some cookie dough and tried new flavors at the actual Vegfest. I only had a bite, but the Fair Trade Coffee was by far my favorite.
I would flat out call Temptation more gelato-like than ice cream, honestly, but it's still delectable and sweet. I really like gelato! It's creamy and icy.
I read on Food Fight!'s blog this morning that the leftover ice cream will be sold at Papa G's soon! Nice.
