Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. – PETA has selected the Top 10 Vegan Sweet Treats from restaurants and bakeries across the U.S., and South Florida’s Sublime Restaurant & Bar is at the top of the list, winning the Best Vegan Sweet Treat Award. There’s no shortage of fabulous vegan desserts these days, but Sublime secured the winning spot, thanks to its Chocolate Nirvana dessert: rich chocolate cake topped with Kahlúa butter crème and dark-chocolate ganache—all quite amazingly dairy- and egg-free.
“At Sublime, you can indulge in a decadent dessert that’s 100 percent animal-friendly and as sweet as can be,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “As PETA’s coast-to-coast list of decadent desserts proves, choosing vegan treats today is a piece of cake.”
Rounding out PETA’s list is iconic bakery Vegan Treats Bakery in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; Passion Flour Patisserie in Salt Lake City; Cinnaholic in Atlanta; Avalon International Breads in Detroit; My Vegan Sweet Tooth in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Strong Hearts Cafe in Syracuse, New York; Sweet Ritual in Austin, Texas; Little Pine in Los Angeles; and Back to Eden Bakery in Portland, Oregon. Each winner will receive a framed certificate.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or to abuse in any other way”—is pleased to find a proliferation of vegan desserts that not only are free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol but also spare animals immense suffering. In the dairy industry, calves are taken away from their mothers shortly after birth, and parts of egg-laying chickens’ beaks are cut off with a hot blade when they’re just a few days old.
