Mr. Dewie’s cashew ice cream is no longer available in grocery stores, but if you’re lucky enough to visit the Bay Area, you can visit one of the creameries yourself. And we highly recommend doing this.
All but one of the flavors offered on the day we visited were vegan (anything not vegan or organic is clearly labeled), and the hot fudge and caramel sauces are also vegan. We tried chocolate orange chip and coconut flavors with hot fudge and almonds.
While we only had room for one scoop each (and because cashew ice cream is so rich, it’s a good thing there’s so much available to go), we were able to sample many of the flavors, which made the decision-making very difficult.
All flavors are rich, creamy, and delicious — most unique and interesting is “tumeric spice,” which is sweet with a little bit of zing; it’s bright yellow-orange and incredibly appetizing. The chocolate orange chip is another unique and wonderful combo; other favorites were chocolate coconut, mint chip, and caramel almond.
In addition to Albany, you can find Mr. Dewie’s at the Emeryville Public Market. Show up hungry, and bring grocery bags to take home what you can!
