Starting in Providence, Rhode Island, a vegan ice cream truck turned brick-and-mortar called Like No Udder is serving soy based soft serve and 12 flavors of hard ice cream made from a variety of bases (cashew, peanut, coconut).

Everything is made in-house including the burgers and cheese. They even offer gluten-free options including desserts, plus a range of organic vegan beers and wines.
