Peterlee firm Beau’s Gelato announces collaboration with vegan chocolate bar maker

Vegan chocolate bar makers LoveRaw and Peterlee-based plant-based ice cream experts Beau’s Gelato have announced an exciting collaboration ahead of Veganuary 2022, with a Limited Edition ‘Love Raw Gelato Box’ featuring two exclusive Beau’s ice cream flavours made using LoveRaw’s popular Cre&mÒ Wafers and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.

The Cre&m One contains pieces of moreish Love Raw’s Bueno-like Hazelnut Cre&mÒ Wafer enrobed in Beau’s creamily decadent praline gelato. The Butter Cup One, meanwhile, offers chunks of salty Love Raw Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, swirled with ribbons of thick, gooey caramel in a buttery, rich peanut gelato.

Both flavours come in 450ml recyclable tubs, accompanied with vegan cones, wafers and toppings in the box. All boxes arrive frozen using carbon-neutral delivery and can remain so for up to twelve house after delivery before needing to be placed in the freezer.

“Veganuary is such a brilliant initiative to support people considering transitioning to veganism, or just trying it for the first time, so we wanted to create something that would be both familiar and a bit special, to encourage people looking at switching to vegan options,” explains Amber Fox-Eyre, co-founder at Beau’s Gelato. “The LoveRaw team has been brilliant to work alongside and the perfect partner for our first ever flavour collaboration.”

“With one third of people in the UK already consuming plant-based milk as a preference*, choosing plant-based for other traditionally dairy products – such as cheese, chocolate and ice cream – can be a relatively simple switch,” adds Joseph Eyre, co-founder at Beau’s. “We want to highlight that there are now an abundance of delicious alternatives out there that people can try: plant-based is no longer synonymous with inferior quality.”

The Love Raw Box goes on sale for £24.99 from 1st – 31st January 2022 (or until supplies run out) and can be found exclusively on
