For dessert lovers with dietary restrictions, there's one sweet treat that's better than ice cream: plant-based ice cream. More and more people across the U.S. are taking to plant-based diets for various reasons, and Aldi is capitalizing on the demand with all-new frozen treats that are drumming up attention on Instagram.
Aldi has added Earth Grown plant-based ice cream to stores, according to @aldifavoritefinds on Instagram. The vegan and oat-based dessert lineup includes ice cream sandwiches; quart-sized ice cream tubs in flavors like cold brew, strawberry, and vanilla cookie chip; and frozen "Jonny Pops" that come in chocolate fudge and salted caramel.
"Aldi is becoming my fav place for plant-based groceries!" wrote one commenter on the Instagram post, while another user added, "I tried the strawberry and I never would have known it was oat milk and not dairy." If you love ice cream, but not dairy, head to your local Aldi and see if these new favorites have hit the shelves.
