Sweet Claude's

Just a quick post tonight.

While I was at our Connecticut office today, I had to run out at lunch time for some computer supplies. One of the ladies from the office joined me and on the way we drove by Sweet Claude's Ice Cream. I hadn't been to Claude's in well over year, but I noticed that their sign said ice cream and Tofutti on it. That's right Tofutti at an ice cream parlor!

Of course, we had to stop. I got a bowl that was half cookie and half mocha almond. She got half cookie and half chocolate. Both of us preferred the cookie flavor. Anyway, if you happen to find yourself in Cheshire, CT...check out Claude's.

It is a small little ice cream shop with quite a few vegan options. They carry a few flavors of Tofutti and also sorbet. I sent them an email thanking them for the vegan/non dairy options.

It's great to see more and more veg options showing up at places you'd least expect.
We vegheads are not going away. In fact there's more and more of us all the time. I think businesses are finally realising that and are moving into the future.

That is so cool! I don't expect that trend here anytime soon, but perhaps someday.

Hi Jody! That is so cool that they have tofutti at an ice cream shop! I would have been so excited! I have never seen that, so it was wonderful that you emailed them to thank them!

What a great place. I agree with Carrie. Hopefully more and more businesses eventually think about this large segment of the population who would choose vegetarian/vegan items and include more veg-friendly fare on their menu. It really would be nice to not have to be excluded all the time.

Tofutti in the parlor, that is classic and wonderful!! Way to follow up, too. That's way cool. Being proactive and showing appreciation is always the best way to go!
