Saturday was one of the hottest days of the year here in NYC with temperatures rising above 100 and not a cloud in sight. My dear friend Morgan told me about a store in the east village that has gluten free ice cream cones and Saturday was the perfect afternoon for us to try them.
Sustainable NYC is a store boasting local, organic, fair trade, recycled, re-purposed, biodegradable, and alterative energy products and gifts for women, men, kids, babies, and pets. They also have a café in the back with fair trade & organic coffee and vegan soups, snacks, baked goods, and ice cream. I was there for the ice cream, not because it was vegan, but because of the gluten free cones! In fact, I didn’t even know the ice cream was vegan while I was eating it. Morgan and I both got peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream. It was delicious. Not only didn’t I notice that the ice cream was vegan, but the cone tasted just like a regular sugar cone. They didn’t even charge me extra for it, I don’t think.
I highly recommend this little treat for any gluten free, vegan, hippie, or regular Joe that isn’t squeamish about trying new things.
