I just realized that today is March eleventh, which means that it's pretty likely that the new Ben&Jerry's vegan ice crams should be in stock at the Ben&Jerry's store. The manager said that they were getting it on or around the tenth, or I guess the week of the tenth, and then it should be hitting Target and wherever else soon after. I might call Target to see if maybe they got it in early. The store is going to be two bus rides away from me, and Green Lake is not a neighborhood I'm too familiar with. When it isn't raining I'm a lot more willing to explore new neighborhoods. We are in that time of year in Seattle where days with non stop rain are very common. Le sigh. Anyway, sometime in my near future I will be trying some vegan Chunky Monkey! I've been feeling torn, because once I was reminded that Ben&Jerry's is owned by Unilever, my enthusiasm waned a little bit. Then, I spent some time going back and forth. There are solid arguments for not supporting Unilever at all, because Unilever, but there are also strong arguments for supporting vegan products from non vegan companies, letting them know that it is worth it to make vegan products. I try my best to not buy anything from Unilever's many, many, many brands, but I'm not perfect. Plus, it's hard to keep up sometimes. These huge conglomerates just keep expanding. Anyway, I don't eat a ton of vegan ice cream to begin with, but I think in the future I will probably try to stick with other brands, but I do want to try this. It's been years in the making, and I want to support this decision to make vegan ice cream for sure. So, that's my plan. Now, if Ben&Jerry's ever decide to make vegan Phish Food, I might not be able to contain myself and my desires.
I have the most Ahmazing update. When I started typing this Target wasn't open yet, but now they are, and I called them and they have all four flavors NOW! Target is close to my apartment, no riding two buses and possibly getting lost! Woot Woot! If you haven't been able to find it yet, I would check your Target store, I've noticed a few YouTubers found theirs at Target.
Happy Happy Friday!
