Boca Raton, Fla. – Just in time for Valentine’s Day, PETA has selected the Top 10 Vegan Sweet Treats from restaurants and bakeries across the U.S.—and the Cookie Cake from Parlour Vegan Bakery has earned a (sweet) spot on the list. The award-winning treat—which comes in round or heart shapes and in Chocolate Chip or Pink Velvet White Chocolate Chip flavors—can be personalized.
“With their rich chocolate chips and adorable frosting messages, Parlour Vegan Bakery’s Cookie Cakes are a delicious way to show a little love to animals this Valentine’s Day,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA’s top 10 list is a love letter to the bakeries that whip up sweet treats without harming chickens, cows, or any other animals.”
Not only are vegan desserts free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol, they also spare animals immense suffering: In the dairy industry, calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth, and in the egg industry, parts of chickens’ beaks are cut off with a hot blade when they’re just a few days old. Vegan treats are also “greener,” as animal agriculture is one of the biggest producers of the greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
Other winners include the Mini Cannoli from Philadelphia’s Batter & Crumbs; the Turtle Cake from Denver’s Make, Believe Bakery; and the Heart-Shaped Chocolate Cake from Harmony Vegan Bakery in Baltimore. Each eatery will receive a framed certificate.
