Vegan gelato shop giving away FREE frozen treats this weekend

Jul 9 2020, 7:13 am

It’s ice cream szn, but for the lactose intolerant, this time of year might feel more focused on the sweltering heat than the milky refreshments that offer respite from it.

Those adverse to dairy are in luck, as a vegan gelato shop is celebrating its grand opening in Toronto this weekend. And those who arrive early can get a free treat.

M!LK Vegan Gelato will be celebrating at 536 Queen Street West on both Saturday and Sunday.

Opening up at 1 pm, the first 20 people in line on both days will get a free scoop of gelato.

The rules are — arrive early enough to snag a free scoop, but don’t crowd the area. A line will undoubtedly form, but you must stand an appropriate distance from the person ahead of you while waiting.

At the address, the front window opens up, so you’ll be able to retrieve your goods while remaining on the sidewalk, without needing to go inside.

And while the free scoop is a major draw, don’t feel limited by that option! The spot is also serving up gelato wedged between waffles (wheat and gluten-free), and plopped inside cupcakes.

If it’s in stock that day, we recommend trying out the spot’s Blue Vanilla flavour, in whatever form you prefer.

Infused with Butterfly Pea Powder, the gelato is a vibrant blue colour, and it turns a gorgeous purple when lemon is squeezed over it!

Which, the spot says, is delicious.
