Herndon, Va. – The doors just opened at former Michelin star pastry chef Olivia Green’s new ice cream shop, Crème de la Crop, and the all-vegan venue already has a cool honor to brag about: national recognition from PETA, the world’s largest animal rights organization. A framed certificate is on its way to Green’s Sunset Business Park location, which offers ice creams, sorbets, and sammies in mouthwatering flavors—including tahini caramel, strawberry basil, and banana nut brûlée—made with gluten-free oat and coconut milks that everyone can enjoy.
“Crème de la Crop’s creamy, decadent treats are proof that being kind to animals and indulging your sweet tooth are a match made in dessert heaven,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA applauds Olivia Green’s innovative ice creams and urges chefs everywhere to follow her lead and ditch dairy.”
Everyone who goes vegan spares the lives of nearly 200 animals a year; reduces their own risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and cancer; and dramatically shrinks their carbon footprint. PETA has free vegan starter kits for anyone ready to make the switch.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, or Instagram.
