Gluten Free Ice Cream Cones at Sustainable NYC

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.
