Phoenix – 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 Phoenix’s Nami has secured a (sweet) spot on the list, thanks to its silky-smooth “tSoft-tServe” ice cream, tSoynami. The handcrafted treat is made with organic unrefined cane sugar and organic soy and coconut milk, and it comes in a chocolate or vanilla flavor, with toppings of your choice, such as chocolate chips, pecans, and toasted marshmallow syrup. Or customers can opt for one of the creative signature combinations—with names like Clunky Monkey, the Haystack Attack, and the Fluffernutterin—instead.

“Nami’s arsenal of artisanal vegan ice creams helps patrons satisfy their sweet tooth and be sweet to animals,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA’s new ‘dessert directory’ will help diners indulge in the best compassionate confections from coast to coast.”

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.

Rounding out PETA’s list are treats from America’s first gourmet vegan restaurant, the iconic Sublime Restaurant & Bar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as well as NuVegan Café in Washington, D.C.; Divine Treasures in Manchester, Connecticut; Timeless Coffee in Oakland, California; Venerable Bean Bakery in Morgantown, West Virginia; Detroit Vegan Soul in Detroit; Plant in Asheville, North Carolina; Mud Pie Vegan Bakery & Coffee in Kansas City, Missouri; and Morels Cafe in Louisville, Kentucky. Each eatery will receive a framed certificate.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—also offers free vegan Valentine’s Day dessert recipes on its website, along with a selection of sweet gifts from the PETA Catalog.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
