Just a hole in the wall on Richards near Hastings, Vegan Pudding has (not surprisingly) vegan pudding and vegan ice cream to go. It is one of the featured places in our Plant Curious Plant-Based Coupon Book that we had never visited.
We showed up on a Saturday and got some puddings to go (that is your only options) and a cup of their vegan ice cream.According to their Instagram page, Secret Ice Cream was born as a secret menu item at Vegan Pudding! Sort of like animal style at In n' Out but cruelty-free here. Anyway, the ice cream was not cheap but it was delicious. We ended up eating it on our skytrain ride home (I wonder if you are actually allowed to eat on skytrain) as the melting factor came into play.
We got 6 puddings altogether and they all made it home to Aldergrove, As near as I can tell, there are 8 pudding flavours and 5 more soy pudding flavours. We tried Mango Vanilla, Green Tea Matcha, and Chocolate and enjoyed them all. Each pudding comes with a separate sauce packet which you add at time of consumption! They were all silky and tasty! The main ingredients are Kabocha squash, coconut milk and maple syrup which is really interesting.
We also tried their Creme Caramel in what flavours, I do not remember. We watched them torch the topping before our eyes which was not as dramatic as it sounds. Unfortunately, that crispy topping was a little soft by the time we got home but still sweet and pleasant. You can get Vegan Pudding products at quite a few local grocery stores and even few restaurants. You should try them for a cruelty-free treat.
