I'm in love with NYC vegan ice cream shop Lula's Sweet Apothecary. I make special trips the east village just to get some treats. New York Egg Cream! No eggs. No cream. It's pretty much chocolate soy milk with seltzer, but yum! No unnecessary waste; they use metal straws. I bought some for my smoothies.The ninja got the bubble gum flavor on a cone.
Root beer float! They use an organic root beer which is clear instead of root beer colored. Served with a cool metal straw/spoon.
