When I first went vegan a decade ago, I was lucky if I could find a single vegan ice cream option at the grocery store. But today, ten years later, many mainstream grocery stores have entire freezer cases dedicated to their dairy-free ice cream selection. Several all-vegan brands have come to life and many other widely loved brands have caught up with the trend and started offering vegan options (like Ben & Jerry’s and Haägen-Dazs). I figure it’s about time we do a complete round-up here at World of Vegan so those who are new to the vegan lifestyle can quickly get the lay of the land.

Popular Ice Cream Brands With Vegan Options
I should make a note about this. Some vegan enthusiasts are throwing shade on traditionally dairy-based companies that are entering the vegan market space, and even going so far as to encourage people to boycott their vegan options. That is insane. Here are 5 reasons why mainstream ice cream brands carrying vegan ice cream options is incredible news for animals.
