Last August, we shared the good news about TCBY introducing “the first ever national dairy-free, almond milk-based frozen yogurt option.” More than 400 locations from coast to coast served the decadent Chocolate Almond flavor for a 12-week trial, and it was met with such incredible success, some stores could barely keep up with the demand.
This plant-based option has been so popular that the largest U.S. retailer of soft-serve is expanding its options and responding to customer requests for more flavors. In fact, as part of its announcement of the new flavor — dairy-free Vanilla Almond — a cover photo on TCBY’s Facebook page boasts: “You asked. We listened.”
This classic flavor is the perfect complement to the decadent chocolate, and as a bonus, both are dairy-, gluten-, and soy-free so that allergen-conscious consumers can enjoy fro-yo to their heart’s content. Combine both flavors and top it off with nuts, berries, coconut, and peanut butter for a truly tasty treat.
TBCY’s decision to offer more vegan options is yet another testament to the power of consumer demand. Recent examples include Domino’s Pizza adding of a vegan cheese option in Israel and Subway offering falafel in dozens of DC-area stores.
Want to see vegan options in even more major restaurant chains? Sign vegan celebrity Kathy Freston’s petition to McDonald’s for a veggie burger, and ask Subway to roll out its falafel nationwide.
