Happy New Year, nice vice fans! We hope you have some incredible health goals for 2016, and we’re ready and willing to help you meet them! Since our grand opening is quickly approaching, we thought we’d better give you a crash course on our vice cream—Vancouver’s healthy alternative to traditional ice cream.
The V is for Vegan
Although we prefer the friendly term ‘plant-based’ as opposed to the often less accepted term ‘vegan’, our vice cream is exactly that. In fact, that’s what the ‘v’ stands for—vegan. Our product is made from kind plant products, and zero animal products. There is no dairy, gelatin, or anything else that derives from animals in your cup of vice cream.
This is important to us, because aside from the human health factors associated with consuming animal products, there are also ethical and environmental ones to consider. We only source kind and mindful ingredients, and we’re proud of that.
Honestly Healthy Ingredients
Aside from being dairy-free, our vice cream is also organic, and dairy, soy, allergen, GMO, and cholesterol-free. Our ingredients include fresh fruit, natural colours and flavours, and locally supported plant-based products.
That’s it, and that’s truly healthy.
At nice vice, we don’t stop at ingredients. Our cute cups are made from the some of the best and most practical and environmentally friendly packaging around. It keeps your vice cream cold, while ensuring our customers know that they are contributing to sustainable practices by choosing to purchase a product that is offered in 100% compostable material.
Jobs Created for Those Who Need Them
nice vice owner Chris White feels passionate about helping others who may be struggling as he once did. We are very proud to acknowledge that nice vice is creating jobs for fellow Vancouverites who need not only employment, but a friendly and safe environment where love and acceptance is emphasized.
Life can be tough, but a kind and supportive workplace can make all the difference.
Our New Yaletown Home
We are thrilled to be very close to opening in Yaletown, where our built-in consumer base consists of a plethora of personalities. Located very close to a variety of health-promoting businesses makes us feel like we’ve found our home, and we’re eager to share our excitement and gratitude with anyone who will let us fill them full of Vanilla Vice or Buzz’d!
So now that you know more about us, we want you to return the favor. Drop by 1022 Mainland to take part in our grand opening (dates TBA)! We want to hear your story, because nice vice isn’t just about vice cream—it’s about the community that supports it.
Please find us on social media and follow us! We'd love to hear from you.
