We Can All Still Scream for Ice Cream

Summer is here and the days are warming up. The lingering light brings thoughts of backyard grilling, late night bonfires, pool parties, and of course, ice cream!

For our dear family members and friends with food allergies, dairy-based ice cream is not the satisfying go-to treat it used to be. Awareness of food sensitivities continue to rise as the Food Allergy Research & Education organization estimates that 15 million Americans, including 1 in 13 children, are affected by food allergies (http://www.foodallergy.org/facts-and-stats).

While dietary issues take traditional ice cream out of the picture for some, others are simply seeking an alternative that packs in all the creaminess and smiles. This is why we make Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss!

How many bites of food do you take in a day? This number is probably large enough that coming up with an accurate figure is difficult. Now imagine that you cut that down by 1/3. To put it another way, for every three bites you normally enjoy, subtract one of them. This number illustrates the influence of pollinators on our diet. And it is just a conservative estimate.

A Night of Bliss 2013

 

Every year, a few weeks before Thanksgiving, we like to host our own gathering, in the spirit of giving back and giving thanks.  We call this little event A Night of Bliss

We call upon our community members, fellow businesses, friends and family, and we throw a party.  There is food, music, dancing, games and endless, (yes, I did say endless) Coconut Bliss ice cream sundaes. 

Imagine a heaping bowl of your favorite flavor, or flavors, all decked out in vegan caramel, fudge, roasted nuts, goji berries, or whatever it is that brings you bliss.  In a word, it is awesome.

Gratitude

You know that feeling you get when you have a great day?  Not just great, but completely awesome?  When you wake up with energy before the alarm goes off, your morning routine goes smoothly, your coworkers have nothing but positive feedback for you, and the guy you stand in line with at the grocery store compliments your style and offers to let you go in front of him? 

On days like this gratitude comes easily.  When you pull out of the parking lot, you wave to the pedestrians crossing the street, smile at the child in the car next to yours and greet your family with joy.  Your gratitude cup floweth over.  Doesn’t that feel amazing?
