This summer, iconic Aussie ice-cream brand, Drumstick has added plant-based ice cream to its range, so now, vegans can join in on the Drumstick craze.

Staying true to its creamy vanilla base, the new plant-based range tastes just like the real deal and is topped with decadent chocolate and crunchy peanuts, all encased in a crispy wafer cone, finished off with a classic choccy tip.

“As more people move towards a plant-based diet, it’s important that we create something that everyone can enjoy without compromising on taste or texture.

Tara Cook, Drumstick senior brand manager said, “To achieve this, our tastemakers have been hard at work to ensure the new Drumstick Plant-Based Classic Vanilla delivers on that iconic Drumstick texture and flavour that they know and love. Ice cream is a summer staple and something all Aussies look forward to on a hot summer’s day so it was important for us to create something that everyone can enjoy and that genuinely tastes great. We’re excited to see how consumers respond to this new addition.”

It is the perfect summer treat for vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, those that are dairy-free, those that are making more plant-based choices and those that just want delicious plant-based ice cream.

You can pick up the Drumstick plant-based classic vanilla box from your local supermarket for $8.40 for a pack of four.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
