Vegan ice cream shop Vicecreme opened on Earth Day last Saturday in Austin, TX. The interior of the shop—owned by brother-and-sister-team Mike Limongelli and Gina Galvan—is emblazoned with the message “Being Kind is Cool,” and offerings include six flavors of hard ice cream, banana-based soft serve, shakes, ice cream sandwiches, and three-scoop sundaes. New flavors—such as maple pecan for fall—will be introduced seasonally, and current toppings include chocolate cookies, peanut butter, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and whipped “creme.” There is no shortage of vegan treats in Austin, as evidenced by the rapid growth of local ice cream company NadaMoo!, which, in addition to adding two new flavors to its coconut milk-based line, expanded to Sprouts stores nationwide last year.
