This exciting news follows Carvel’s 2022 launch of oat milk–based ice cream cakes in Publix grocery stores. We’re thrilled that the iconic brand has made additional nondairy options available to its compassionate customers.

Choosing nondairy treats helps spare loving, playful cows, who are used for their milk. Instead of allowing cows to nurse their own babies, the dairy industry tears calves away from their mothers shortly after birth. Then, workers steal their milk so that it can be sold. Leave the milk to the cows, and choose treats that don’t hurt animals.


If there isn’t a Carvel location near you, don’t fret. It’s easier than ever to find vegan scoops and other options at ice cream shops, including Dairy Queen, Ben & Jerry’s, and Baskin-Robbins. Your local grocery chain is also sure to carry a variety of cow-friendly frozen desserts, including pints and ice cream bars and sandwiches.
