You don’t have to purchase anything, and there are no odd strings attached. You simply walk in, ask for a scoop of one of their non-dairy, 100% vegan certified flavors, and dig in.

For those with nut allergies, just keep in mind these flavors are made with almond milk, so that may or may not be a deal breaker for you, but for everyone else, just enjoy a scoop on the house.

Thank you, vegans.

The 4-Day Ice Cream Cleanse That’s Not the Worst for You?

icecreamcleanse

We can’t pretend we haven’t thought of it. You could even say it’s kind of a dream come true: a diet cleanse made entirely of ice cream? Get outta here!

Yep, it turns out there’s a vegan ice cream shop in Los Angeles that’s offering a four-day, ice cream only-diet cleanse that’s supposed to be good for you. For $240, Kippy’s Ice Cream Shop will give you 20 pints of its coconut-cream based, raw, organic, non-dairy ice cream, in a variety of flavors, from Himalayan Fire Salt to Orange Creme. All in all, the cleanse works out to one pint per meal, five pints per day, for four days straight.

According to Kippy’s promotional email,

“When you cleanse from eating Kippy’s Ice Cream, you are feeding your body not only the raw saturated fat from the coconuts, but living nutrients from the fruit and Superfoods present in the ice cream. The raw honey used to sweeten Kippy’s Ice Cream is a double whammy of amino acids and living enzymes, which aid digestion and reduce inflammation [. . .]

Basically, you can expect to lose weight and feel great! And since it’s Kippy’s Ice Cream, you know it’ll be delicious… and fun!”

Gizmodo’s Brent Rose tried the experiment with his girlfriend, and found the experience to be fairly delicious, if exhausting, and only dubiously healthy. There was plenty of poop involved, as well as a nutritional check that revealed over 800% over the daily recommended amount of saturated fat and over 360 grams of sugar consumed per day.

On the plus side, it probably made for one bomb Netflix-binging session.
