Innocent Ice Cream is a triple threat when it comes to cold and delicious treats.
The all-natural, gluten-free ice cream sandwich purveyor has a a solar powered truck and a shiny pink tricycle for special occasions and events, along with a brand new parlour located at 4895 Main Street, tucked into the Little Mountain area of the neighbourhood.
That’s three ways to get this company’s goods in Vancouver, and let me tell you, you’re going to want to get ’em.
Innocent offers drool-worthy sandwiches with names like the Canadian (oatmeal cookies, maple walnut ice cream), the Fairytale (white chocolate chip cookie, raspberry white chocolate ice cream), the Kong (chocolate cookie, banana ice cream), and the Cherry Bomb (double chocolate cookies, wild cherry gelato), to name a few.
You can get 12 different kinds of these babies in regular size ($6.95), or mini ($2.95), and all cookies are gluten free too.
Other offerings include mini sandwich flights for $7.95 – yes, four small-but-mighty flavour-packed ice cream sandwiches – so you can wet your whistle with all your favourite kinds at once.
Patrons here all have the option to swap in vegan ice cream and a vegan gluten-free cone for an additional price.
To wash that ice cream/cookie goodness down, Innocent’s parlour offers coffee and tea, along with combos like the Fam Jam (two sandwiches, one mini for $16.50), The Pursuit of Happiness (sandwich and Americano for $9.15), and the Little Bang (mini sandwich and an espresso).
It’s pretty unlikely, but if sandwiches aren’t your thing, Innocent also offers cups and regular ice cream cones (gluten free cones, of course), but you’re bound to find something cool to help you with that summer heat at this new Main Street spot.
Innocent Ice Cream is open from noon to 10 pm daily.
