I scream for ice cream!

Hi it's Caroline!
So, with summer fast approaching, there is one big thing on most people's minds: ICE CREAM!!! What's the first thing you think of when those 2 words? Probably your favorite flavor, or ice cream shop. Not fair trade ice cream! But, as crazy as it sounds, I found it: ice cream, fair trade style. When I went to Whole Foods (a supermarket with a huge array of fair trade products) I was able to find an entire brand dedicated to fair trade ice cream!! The brand also carries chocolate flavored dessert bars, and pints of ice cream in varied flavors, most of them fair trade.
Ice cream: Luna and Larry's Coconut Bliss
Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Bar
Soy, dairy, and gluten-free
Low glycemic, agave sweetened, vegan
Naked Coconut (plain coconut flavor)
It was pretty good, but since it's dairy-free, it has a VERY different texture. Not bad, but just different. Kind of a little bit creamier. Plus, it has real pieces of coconut, which make it extra sweet. Some people might not like sweet, but I'm not one of them. If you like coconut, you will love this! :)
