It's due to ship this week! And there are FOUR vegan flavors not just one! and one is Chunky Monkey! This is very exciting; I hope the people who normally buy B&J's will try and love the vegan ones. If anyone finds it please say where!

(I thought there was a thread already about it but didn't find it!)

I wasn't that thrilled until I found out Chunky Monkey was one of the flavors.

Also, hate to be a bummer, but they are owned by Unilever. I didn't even know Unilever owned food companies.

I don't care who owns them. Vegan chunky monkey makes this my favorite day ever.mat least until somebody makes vegan pistachio ice cream.

Yeah it sucks to support Unilever and I don't plan on giving them a ton of money but it's worth a try, I think. The real win is for people who already are customers - I saw under B&J's twitter page someone was like, "if this is good, I won't have to take a pill when I eat Ben & Jerry's anymore!" That's awesome, to get nonvegans in the mainstream to switch from dairy to non.

I think the big winner is making vegan food more and more mainstream. If you can walk into Walmart and buy vegan ice cream and mayo, veganism isn't really all that weird or fringe, is it?

Vegans who use CREDO & Working Assets are stoked (is that reference hella dated now?).

I have to admit, those flavors look forking delicious. I might try the three that won't send me into anaphylactic shock.

ETA: I just read in that article that Hellman's is going to be putting out a vegan mayo. fork them! Good luck getting our money now, crassholes.

Hah, yeah. fork them. Now we know why they were such whiny cry babies.

I'll eat a dry sandwich before using anything they put out.

OMG the comments are all "This is garbage and no one should eat it! Take out all the soy, sugar, fat, HFCS and start over!" Really, a mainstream company makes a vegan, fair-trade ice-cream which means that we could get vegan options conveniently in regular supermarkets and stores and people are complaining? The coffee caramel chunk sounds so good and we are so excited for Chunky Monkey!

Can we just leave some nice comments, people?

I want Chunky Monkey but I don't know if I'd buy it because of the parent company issue. I mean I stopped buying St. Ives because they got bought by Unilever so wouldn't it make me a hypocrite to turn around and buy B&J when I have so many other options? I can see it ad a win for people who don't have access to different choices but for me personally I feel like I'd be a hypocrite.

I also checked on the Palm Oil usage and Ben & Jerry's does use a sustainable source.

I'm really hoping the coffee caramel flavor is good. I miss coffee ice cream! None of the (very few) vegan ones I've tried have been the same.

And yeah I think people walking into Walmart or the like and having all these vegan options is huge.

I think the soy angst is out in full force just because of the soy lecithin in it. I imagine that soy has now become bugbear number 1, for some reason and the crunchy crowd are treating it like its a deadly poison for no apparent reason.

God vegans are dicks sometimes. I get the impression with some of them it's more about going "Look at me, so pure, so healthy" rather than not eating animals.

Like all those people slagging off the cupcake book because all the recipes had sugar.

Mat.

I'm super bummed it's an almond base (almonds make me itchy so no go), but I'm going to watch this thread with extreme interest anyway. The chocolate fudgey one looks divine.

I first realized Unilever owned food brands when I noticed their logo on Maille mustard. Giant bummer. But parent companies are such a big gray area for me. I mean, I sometimes buy Tom's of Maine or Gardein? Bah, I don't know.

But if they made vegan Phish Food I would probably trample a herd of puppies to get my hands on it (disclaimer: I would not actually trample puppies).

Oh, and I 100% agree that stuff like this is awesome and the more mainstream vegan stuff there is, the better. I'm just angsty about whether I will personally buy it, when I have lots of other options.

I want Dave Matthew's Magic Brownie. Lula's used to make it and Blythe used to put a pint aside for me and tweet me she had it.

I am so sad that Lula's is closed. Blythe is amazing and her ice-cream products were incredible. I'm really going to miss her and them.
