I am sick to death of all the "fro-yos" popping up around town. VEGANS LOVE FROZEN DESSERTS TOO. Just the kind that don't include a heaping helping of rape, plundering and murder of innocent cows. Hello soy ice cream, how YOU doing? Granted, Here's the Scoop is a proud dairy ice cream establishment, but they are gracious and smart enough to offer a small selection of soy ice creams in the usual flavors: cherry, vanilla, mint chip and blueberry (where's the chocolate?!?!). They make sure the classic cone is vegan and they offer a "mallow" topping and your choice of almond slices or peanuts. What does that mean for us? Banana splits, 1, 2 or 3 scoop sundaes, shakes...oh baby. They also offer vegan bonbons and chocolate covered cherries with dark chocolate. mmmm mmmm! They also serve Gunthers freezes if you like, but you have my permission to get that 3 scoop sundae, ok? Haven't you had your fair share of freezes as a vegan!
HINT to Sacramento: if you got a strictly vegan ice cream place it would be out the door, man. Speaking of out the door, be aware that HTS is directly across the street from the high school so either a masochist or a person REALLY needing ice cream would think to go in there during after after school hours. They are open late, so you can go after dinner (or at the dinner hour and *call* it dinner!). There are a few chairs, and some outside seating but with the bbq cooking hot dogs and different meats we like to get ours "to go" if you know what I mean.
I am strictly reviewing the soy 'cream here with 4.5 tomatoes. How else could you rate a sundae? The rest of the menu is about as NOT vegan as you can get but I take it as I can get it sometimes!
