Hey that's cool, and I know a great place you can advertise. Right here at this site. And pay for it!

Also, ice cream by definition contains.....cream. How is that vegan?

"Cream" doesn't only refer to milk: http://www.answers.com/topic/cream?cat=health.

But I think that mostly it just sounds better than "vegan frozen dessert."

Jodie, from the same site you used for you link:

http://www.answers.com/ice+cream?cat=health

You posted the link for the definition of "cream", my link has the definition of "ice cream", and the only entry mentions milk and milk fat as components.

I'm not making fun of vegan ice cream substitutes, I have had tofutti and Soy Delicious and I like both of those products, even though I am not a vegan. I just think people should tell it like it is and not call something "ice cream" if it isn't.

I'll bet the shopkeeper can come up with a catchy name for the product and still be accurate. And then pay Adam to advertise their catchy name

But they're not calling it "ice cream" they're calling it "vegan ice cream." By the same token, "fat-free ice cream" would need a new name too, as ice cream by definition contains fat.

Language is supposed to be dynamic. If we didn't g around pushing the limits of definitions, the English language would end up like Latin. I don't want to speak Latin!

Also, it's not exhaustively cow's milk. Ice cream can theoretically be made from goat's milk or sheep's milk or the milky substance from plants...

OK then....why did you cite a definition first then Angelic if we're not going to go by them.

I do like the idea of a Latin name for ice cream ! ALthough I couldn't find cream...so ice milk is lactis glacialis....Catchy!

Well, I was pointing out that it *is* covered by definition.

I don't think that "Lactis" would be good- I started eating soy ice cream before I became vegan because I don't digest lactose so well, and I think there's a sect of non-vegans who eat soy (vegan) ice cream specifically for that purpose (man oh man, the Lactaid products are gross- soy ice cream is way better). "Lactis" would probably be a turn off in terms of mrketing.

Yes that, and also folks like me looking to lower their intake of saturated fat and cholesterol.

If you're going to advertise your web site, you should consider putting some content there first. Especially if you want people to use it to order merchandise online.

I think sorbet is considered a type of ice cream...and it would be vegan...

Sorbet is definitely vegan, but not creamy.

It should be, but a few brands put egg whites in the sorbet. Several do it for chocolate and a few do it for all the flavors. Fuckers. But these tend to be the super corn-syrupy grocery store ones, not the better natural ones. And there's one brand (Hgen-Dasz?) that uses small amounts of dairy in their chocolate sorbet. I actually read about both brands initially in allergy magazines we had at an early childhood center where I worked; people were getting pissed off because they'd told their daycares that sorbet was fine to give their kids with allergies, since they were only aware of the normal (vegan) sorbet that the higher quality brands make. Then their kids were given Hgen-Daszxcszs or whatever and got poofy. Fortunately these weren't kids with severe allergies, which was probably why the parents were fine with them being fed some things that they hadn't inspected themselves.

What kind did you try? This isn't a challenge; I've had gross non-dairy frozen desserts and good of the same.

Well, if he only tried blended tofu, I'm sure it was gross.

The first soy ice cream I tried years and years ago was horrible. I had tried it as an alternative to regular ice cream since I'm lactose intolerant. At the time, I felt it better to suffer the consequences of eating real ice cream. Since that time, there have been a lot of improvements in soy ice creams (i've never tried the rice or other non-dairy types).
