Okay, so we don’t have a cool Buzzfeed-style quiz generator . . . and by “personality”, we really mean “dietary preferences and digestive foibles”, but stick with us! Here’s a breakdown of the ice creams of Moberly, and a handy guide to figure out which is the ice cream for you!
The “I Can Eat And Digest ANYTHING!” – Mapleton’s Organic Ice Cream
Made with all organic ingredients and fresh cream, Mapleton’s Ice Cream is gluten-free and salt-free and, with the exception of the Cappuccino flavor, nut-free. Mapleton’s is a local Ontario brand, and they get all their cream from their herd of 70 cows.
Choose this ice cream if: you want ice cream like you had as a kid – delicious and full of dairy.
The “Dairy Might Be An Issue For Me, But It’s Not TOO Bad” – Hewitt’s Goat Milk Ice Cream
Because goats are more similarly-weighted to humans than cows are, their milk is more akin to human milk – less lactose, and a particle size that is more easily digested by humans. Often, people who have difficulty digesting cow dairy can enjoy goat bloat-free! Hewitt’s Dairy is also Ontario-based, and has been producing milk-products since 1887! Another plus in the Hewitt’s column – they sweeten their ice cream with honey instead of sugar.
Choose this ice cream if: you still want your ice cream from milk, but just can’t stomach the cow dairy.
The “Gimme All The Soy!” – So Delicious Ice Cream
Choose this ice cream if: you’re skipping the dairy, and can handle soy (no allergies, thyroid or hormone issues)
The “Coconutty Non-Vegan” – Screamin Brothers
As seen on Dragon’s Den, the Screamin Brothers started selling ice cream as a way to raise money for children’s charities – 5% of their profits are donated to children in need, both locally and internationally. The coolest part – the Alberta-based Screamin Brothers are kids themselves.
Their product is coconut-based, and free from the most common allergens. They are INCREDIBLY eco-conscious, and dedicated to sourcing local, ethical ingredients for their products. Their ice cream is honey-sweetened, so it isn’t suitable for strict vegans, but is DELICIOUS nonetheless (we are particularly fond of the Key Lime flavor).
Choose this ice cream if: you love giving back with your ice cream habits, and you’re looking for a cross between an ice cream and a sorbet.
The “Coconutty Vegan” – Coconut Bliss
Luna and Larry set out to create a delicious coconut-based ice cream alternative, and they succeeded. Most of the time, you won’t even know you’re not eating traditional ice cream! Available in pints or bars, Coconut Bliss is also gluten-free and vegan-friendly.
Choose this ice cream if: you’re looking for a 100% vegan option and lots of flavor choices!
Summer is here (most days), so celebrate with ice cream that the whole family can enjoy! Did I mention we also have gluten-free cones?
