BRISTOL’S VX NABS A SPOT ON PETA’S ‘TOP VEGAN SWEET TREATS’ LIST
Coffee Shop Wins Award for Its Decadent Egg- and Dairy-Free Sundaes, Cakes, and Pastries
Bristol – PETA has finalised its list of the Top 12 Vegan Sweet Treats across the UK, and scooping up a coveted spot is popular Bristol eatery Vx, whose delicious egg- and dairy-free options include French-style eclairs filled with whipped cream as well as vanilla and caramel “monster shakes” topped with a salted caramel brownie, cream, and pretzels.
“Vx’s delectable cruelty-free offerings 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 The Lady Luck in Canterbury, Science Cream in Cardiff, The Caffeine Drip in Edinburgh, Rabbit in Exeter, Our Kitchen in Liverpool, Yorica! in London, Ice Shack in Manchester, Doughnotts in Nottingham, Luna Rossa in Sheffield, and ASK Italian and Shakeaway, which have locations across the UK. 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.
