This past weekend I attended the Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, MD. One of the more exciting new products I saw at the event was a new vegan ice cream made by the company, Wink. The thing that really got me hooked on Wink Ice Cream was that the entire pint only has 100 calories! A serving is 1/4 a pint and only has 25 calories. With flavors like cinnamon bun, cocoa-dough, and cake batter, I was impressed!
The ice cream is made with a monk fruit, peas, and stevia which makes them healthy and natural. It’s free of common allergens like egg, nuts, and dairy. A complete list of ingredients can be found here.
At the Natural Products Expo, I was able to try the cinnamon bun flavor. I was skeptical of how it would taste with such low calories but I definitely enjoyed it. The ice cream wasn’t as creamy or decadent as other more high calorie desserts, but I was surprised how good it tasted. It’s a great alternative to vegans looking for something healthy but tastes good, and for those with allergies.
I was amazed that I could eat nearly 5 pints of Wink Ice Cream and it wouldn’t even amount to the calories in one pint of other vegan ice creams. The flavors choices are great and I can’t wait to try some of the other flavors.
Right now, Wink can only be found in the North East, primarily in NYC and Philadelphia. You can see what stores it’s available in near you by checking out the store locator. I didn’t get to write down the retail price, so if you know please send me a comment! Stay tuned for more new products I found at the Natural Products Expo by subscribing!
