  1. Hey!
    You missed my favourite vegan ice cream bars MiiRO 🙂
    They support Veganuary and they’re a great alternative to Magnum.

  2. Coconut Collaborative makes ice cream 🙂 Most of the Perfect World ones aren’t vegan as they contain egg…I think maybe one flavour is. Also Magnums and Cornettos – so much choice

      Perfect World are all vegan, they used to contain egg but relaunched as fully vegan last year. Plus they don’t have sugar so way better for you 🙂
