Food brand Nestlé recently launched vegan versions of its iconic Drumstick ice cream cones in Canada. Described as “plant-based indulgence,” vegan Drumstick ice cream is available in two flavors: Caramel (caramel ice cream base topped with dark chocolate drizzle and crunchy peanuts); and Vanilla Chocolate Swirl (vanilla ice cream base topped with dark chocolate drizzle and mini chocolate chips). “Now here’s a real game-changer,” the brand describes its new frozen treats. “Crafted in Canada, these indulgent plant-based, vegan cones are made without artificial colors. Proudly raise your cone to Drumstick plant-based goodness.” In December 2019, Nestlé sold its United States ice cream business—which includes brands such as Drumstick, Häagen-Dazs, Dreyer’s, Edy’s, and Skinny Cow—for $4 billion to Froneri, a joint venture it created with European private equity firm PAI Partners. Last month, Froneri-owned ice cream Peter’s Drumstick launched a vegan line of ice cream cones in Australia in three flavors: Vanilla Bean Choc Almond, Affogato, and Raspberry & Coconut. VegNews has reached out to Froneri to inquire about a US launch of vegan Drumstick ice cream cones.
