Today, the kids and I went to Trader Joe’s. We took the double stroller, which was quite an endeavor in itself.

On our way back home, we walked up Bergen Street and saw a familiar site, The Van Leeuwen ice cream shop! I’d been meaning to check it out for some time. Especially because my kids’ last name is Van Luyn, which is super close to “Van Leeuwen.” Hooray!

The double stroller was filled to the top with groceries. The kids were really sucking at walking home so upon spotting the Van Leeuwen ice cream shop, I decided to bribe them.

“Who wants ice cream?!” I exclaimed/asked
“Me!” Shouted the kids.

We entered the Van Leeuwen ice cream shop and I noticed a sign for “Vegan Ice Cream.” It looked delicious in the picture, but I was suspicious. I bet it tastes like cardboard… I thought.

Betsy, the lovely girl behind the counter, handed the kids and I a giant scoop of chocolate vegan ice cream to share.

I took a bite, and I immediately tasted a combination of coconut and chocolate. It was delicious and tasted nothing like cardboard.


Thank you to Betsy for taking these stellar photos.

I highly recommend the vegan ice cream! WOW! Go to  Van Leeuwen in Brooklyn!

Have you gone yet?
You should eat it.
