Vegan ice-creams have been taking the world by storm in recent months, with Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s launching a whole range of dairy-free ice-creams throughout the U.S, Fry’s launching a range of artisan coconut milk ice-creams, Cornetto Italy announcing the addition of a vegan Cornetto range and Alpro debuting a range of dairy-free delights. So it’s no surprise that a Manchester ice-cream shop that already served a delicious range of vegan ice-creams has decided to shun dairy once and for all and go 100% vegan!

We’re excited to hear that the store will even feature a chocolate counter, and according to Fat Gay Vegan it will contain “more than 20 vegan dark, milk and white chocolate truffles, a raw chocolate bar range featuring five flavours, chocolate shortbreads and a vegan dog biscuit range with peanut butter and carrot treats.”

If you’re thirsty you can get stuck into one of their super-decadent soyshake milkshakes!

When does it re-open, and where can I find it?

The store will re-open on April 4th, and you can find it on the edge of Withington Village, Manchester, directly behind Withington Library on the corner of Wilmslow Road, at 1c 160-164 Wellington Road and Rippingham Road.
