Hi everyone: long time no see!
I know that it has been so long since I’ve put out a blog post, but I’m back! As most of you know, I am a student, and I have been so busy with school work these last few weeks. But now that I’m on summer break, I’m hoping to be back to regularly posting blog posts. If you want to keep up with what’s going on, you can follow me on Instagram at @nallergy. I post fairly regularly on there, and you can also find lots of other food allergy tips! Now, let’s get on with today’s blog post.
Two weeks ago, I got to go to Videri after a whole year of not going there. And… I finally got to try their nut free, soft serve ice cream! Spoiler alert: it was amazing.
The way that it works is you go up to a window outside of their store to order your soft serve. The physical store part of Videri reopened a couple of days ago, but you will still find the soft serve window outside of the store.
You can get vanilla, chocolate or swirled soft serve in a cup or waffle cone, and you get one free topping. Any additional toppings are $0.50 each, and there are some deluxe toppings that cost $1 each. Surprisingly for Videri, the soft serve is pretty fairly priced. You can get a waffle cone for $3, a small cup for $3 or a large cup for $5.
One topping that I thought was interesting but didn’t get was the YumEarth gummy bears. For those of you who don’t know, YumEarth is an allergy friendly company that makes candy free of the top eight allergens. It made me so happy to see an allergy friendly brand being used!
I got a small chocolate soft serve with chocolate fudge sauce and chocolate cookie crumble on top. As a choco-holic, it was amazing! Everything about the ice cream was just so good, and I savored every last bite. The best part? Knowing that it was completely tree nut and peanut free.
At the window, we also got five of Videri’s chocolate bonbons. I mean, did you really go to Videri if you didn’t get any bonbons?!? Every one of them was delicious, as usual.
Also, as an FYI, you won’t order the chocolate bonbons at the window stand anymore. You will have to go inside the actual Videri store to buy them, but they also have some that you can buy online.
As you can probably tell from this blog post, this trip to Videri was a ten out of ten for me. Everything tasted amazing, and I can’t wait to go back already!
