      If you’re a fan of the “vice cream” made by Vancouver’s only plant-based, non-dairy micro-creamery, you better race down there fast because you have limited time left to purchase their frozen treats.  

      Nice Vice 0% Dairy Creamery started as a food truck and opened a permanent location at at 1022 Mainland Street in February 2016. However, they announced today (January 12) that they will be closing their shop in Yaletown.

      While the final date has not yet been determined, they will announce it on their social media.

      Due to the closure, they’re announced a blowout sale: all cups and cones are on sale for $1 each (with no quantity limits)—a surefire way to get people buying them despite the cold weather.

      Their vice cream is organic, and free of dairy, soy, allergens, GMOs, and cholesterol. In lieu of cow’s milk, they utitlized ingredients such as sweet-potato milk and kabocha squash to achieve the same qualities as ice cream. 

      They offered 12 flavours daily and made their vice cream daily.

      While their menu included familiar flavours such as double fudge, raspberry, and cookies and cream, there were also some adventurous and innovative selections such as banoffee pie with graham crackers, Earl Grey bergamot with activated charcoal, mojito, fennel licorice, passionfruit hibiscus, lemon tangerine basil, rapberry navy bean fudge, and watermelon mint.

      Sales at wholesale outlets will also end with the closure of their shop.

      In their dedication to sustainability, their sought plant-based packaging, and all of their containers were made out of straw.  

      In their announcement, in which they thanked their loyal customers, they stated that they do hope to reopen at another location in the future but so far they don’t have any specific plans established yet.
