SweetPea, a new plant-based, non-dairy ice cream, delivers on half the calories, half the fat and all the taste of ice cream. Its main ingredient is protein-packed chickpeas – one of this year’s Top 10 Food Trends, as recently identified by Whole Foods Market.
SweetPea’s nine instant-favorite flavors include: That’s a Mean Vanilla Bean, Peanut Butter Bomb; Must Do Cold Brew; Mango Tango (feat. Peach); One ‘n Only Cookies ‘n Cream; Salted Caramel’s Sweet Talkin’ Pralines; T.G.I.PieDay: Raspberry; 3 Parts Chocolate; and Hello, Cookie Dough!
“We’re excited to finally share SweetPea with ice cream lovers everywhere,” SweetPea co-founder Heather Romens said. “It was important for us to provide a non-dairy frozen dessert that is both delicious and can be enjoyed by everyone. We’re incredibly proud of the pints we’ve created.”
Romens’ family entered the frozen-dessert business in 1987, opening an ice cream shop in Virginia Beach, Va. It later expanded into multiple stores and ultimately into ice cream cakes sold at supermarkets.
“It took us a number of years, a lot of hard work, experimentation and taste tests to get SweetPea just right,” Romens said. “I’m happy to report that it has been well worth the wait!”
SweetPea is now available to order online for nationwide delivery, with in-store availability anticipated later this year.
