“Sprouts has been an amazing partner to Van Leeuwen the past few years, so we couldn’t be more excited to be launching a new pint flavor and two new ice cream bars exclusively in Sprouts stores,” said Ben Van Leeuwen, co-Founder and CEO of Van Leeuwen Ice Cream.

“We also wanted to put a unique twist on another nostalgic treat, Banana Bread Pudding, but create this as a vegan flavor. We love providing top-quality ice cream for all, so we are thrilled to be offering vegans another delicious flavor to add to their freezers,” said Van Leeuwen.

Van Leeuwen has now opened 34 scoop shops in NYC, NJ, CT, LA, PA, TX, and CO, has products in grocery stores across the country, and is available to order for nationwide shipping from its website.
