Coconut Mint Chip – Made with coconut milk (vegan)
Price: $3.00 for one scoop
Now normally I shy away from anything that has “vegan” attached to it. Not that I have anything against vegans. I just find animal products to be tasty and so far I haven’t found a good substitute. So when I saw Coconut Mint Chip as one of the flavors at Bluebird Creamery I was excited and thought “Hey I like coconut and chocolate together. I wonder what that would taste like with mint?” Then I saw (vegan) beside it and paused. This was my ice cream treat. Was I going to spoil it with something that lacks the main component in ice cream – the cream part? At this point I was so set on the flavour, I got it anyway. On first taste I noticed it was icier than regular cream based ice cream but it definitely had a good coconut flavour and quality chocolate bits. The mint flavour was a bit overwhelming at first but mellowed out as I ate it. Would I go vegan again when it came to ice cream? I guess it would depend on how rich and creamy I wanted my ice cream. As far as flavour goes, this was a tasty treat!
