THE BEST VEGAN SWEET TREATS IN THE UK

UK Eateries Win Awards for Their Decadent Egg- and Dairy-Free Desserts

London – As the number of British vegans reaches over half a million, the market for plant-based meals, snacks, and desserts is at an all-time high – and that’s why PETA has created a list of the Top 12 Vegan Sweet Treats across the UK. Some of the winners include the following:

Yorica!: This London-based ice cream parlour offers dairy-free ice cream, frozen yogurt, shakes, and waffles. Its mouth-watering flavours include rainbow candy, cookies and cream, gooey vanilla brownie, and banoffee. There’s also a variety of tasty toppings and fresh fruit sauces.

ASK Italian: This popular UK chain serves a range of vegan desserts, including a zesty dark chocolate tart with a nut and date base, served with tangy raspberry sorbet.

Shakeaway: Soya-milk shakes aren’t in short supply at this nationwide chain, and its delicious vegan options include Oreo, After Eight, and Turkish Delight flavours. Additional toppings include Starburst, Skittles, and Maoam Stripes.

“From ice cream parlours to doughnut shops, all our winners make it possible to indulge your sweet tooth while also being sweet to animals,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “As all the compassionate eateries on PETA’s list prove, choosing vegan treats today is a piece of cake.”

Rounding out PETA’s list are Vx in Bristol, The Lady Luck in Canterbury, Science Cream in Cardiff, The Caffeine Drip in Edinburgh, Rabbit in Exeter, Our Kitchen in Liverpool, Ice Shack in Manchester, Doughnotts in Nottingham, and Luna Rossa in Sheffield. Each winner will receive a framed certificate.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way” – notes that the consumption of eggs and dairy foods, which are high in cholesterol and saturated fat, contributes to the UK’s obesity epidemic, which is linked to many of the country’s top killers, including heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancer. Not only are plant-based meals better for our health and the planet – since animal agriculture is one of the biggest contributors to climate change – they also spare millions of animals the horrors of factory farms every year.
