When word of a good new vegan food product hits the street, it spreads through the PETA office faster than a California wildfire. Sometimes the product lives up to the uber-vegan hype; sometimes not. So when I caught wind of Dairy Queen’s new “Star Kiss” frozen treat, I was more than a little skeptical. But I had the chance to try one yesterday and I can honestly say that the Star Kiss is the best thing to hit the market since sliced bread. OK, it may have a little bit to do with the fact that it’s a frozen ice cream type treat and it’s like a million degrees in Virginia right now, but still, it’s good. Really good. Obviously, it’s not exactly an ice cream bar—it is vegan after all—but it is definitely rich and creamy like ice cream, and there is the added advantage that it’s not full of fat and cholesterol like ice cream. Oh, and there’s another small advantage over ice cream—extreme cruelty to animals isn’t involved in its production. So anyway, there’s my pitch. Check out the Star Kiss at DQ and judge for yourself.
