I imagine the idea of creating a vegan cookie dough ice cream flavor came from a little kid who, while eating an ice cream cone, went to scoop out a finger-full of his mom’s homemade cookie dough only to find a piece of it plopped down onto his cone. Bothered at first, he looked down to see his predicament.

Unable to remove it with his hands, his only choice was to pick up the cookie dough with his mouth. Simultaneously he managed to scoop up a slurp of vanilla ice cream along with the dough and as the flavors mixed around in his mouth, his eyes widened. Had he just accidentally created the world’s greatest ice cream flavor? Without a doubt. Lo and behold, Vegan Cookie Dough Ice Cream!
