Atomic #7 Trustworthy Treats


Two weeks ago, the coolest place opened up just outside of Las Vegas in Henderson, NV: Atomic #7 Trustworthy Treats. They’re an ice cream parlor that serves huge variety of vegan ice cream (and dairy, too, but they keep everything nice and separate… honestly, the dairy feels like an afterthought with all the attention given to the vegan side of things). But get this: it’s all made to order from scratch. You pick the flavor, the type of milk–including rice, soy, coconut, and almond–and “chunky elements.” And if you want it, a homemade vegan waffle cone.

But wait until you see the video (I shot this last tonight):

How freakin’ cool is that? Add the fact that a local vegan baker was handing out samples of cake and that’s a hard place to beat.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some mint chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream waiting to be devoured.

RIP, Amina


We lost our sweet girl today.

We will miss you so, so much, Amina. Thank you for picking us and sharing your life with us.
