Vegan soft serve is spreading

Dairy-free ice cream has just gone soft on us. We’ve had delicious traditional dairy-free ice cream available in many locations for some time. Many people also like what’s commonly called “soft serve.” We’re lucky to have so many brands to choose from and we’ve been able to enjoy them, pre-Covid, in many places, but we haven’t yet seen them in baseball stadiums. That’s changing!

One company making soft serve, Oatly, will now be serving their soft serve ice cream at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, and at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois. What a treat for Cubs and Rangers fans! Mike Messersmith, Oatly North American President, said “More and more, people are choosing to eat more plant-based, even at the ballpark….Globe Life Field is a great place to make that choice, and we’re excited for Rangers fans to try Oatly in a whole new way with our soft serve.”

It seems that many of us will finally be able to go see baseball this summer. How about it, Mariners? Seattle has long been know as a cutting edge city so its baseball stadium should be cutting edge as well. Vegetarian and vegan food options are available at The Natural food stand at T-Mobile Park, but wouldn’t it be great if they could top that off with soft serve dairy-free ice cream!

Nadamoo – new dairy-free ice cream

Nadamoo HelicoptersThere are so many wonderful products at Vegfest every year and many are new to our region. One of our favorites is Nadomoo!  As its name implies it’s a dairy free ice “cream”.

Nadamoo! was a big hit at Vegfest so we decided to find out more. Here’s how they answered some of our questions. I’ve just got to try the Birthday Cake Cookie Dough!

When did your company start? Our company was started in 2004 in Austin, TX.

How would you describe your product? It’s the best tasting ice cream on the market! We think that just because it’s non-dairy doesn’t mean that it should lack in flavor. We have the creamiest, richest most ice cream-like plant-based product out there, or at least we think so!

What motivated you to begin? What’s Nadamoo! all about? NadaMoo! is a family brand that was created by our founder so that her sister, who suffered from food allergies, could enjoy ice cream with the rest of their family. Needless to say, we are all about family and inclusion. We want everyone to enjoy our dessert regardless of dietary restrictions.

What interested you in expanding into the Northwest? Just like Austin, we know there are lots of customers in the Northwest looking for organic, non-dairy desserts. We believe in transparency and creating a clean label.

How many kinds of Nadamoo! are there? What are the newest varieties? There are currently 15 flavors of NadaMoo! The newest flavors are Birthday Cake Cookie Dough and The Rockiest Road which were released in February 2017. Chocolate Peanut Butter was just released in May 2017!

Where can I buy Nadamoo! products locally?  Our products are currently available in Whole Foods Markets in Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Lynnwood, and University Place, and also at the Metropolitan Market in Tacoma (Proctor) and Sno-Isle Coop in Everett.
