Swedish-style NICK’S Ice Cream and animal-free dairy innovator Perfect Day have partnered to launch a new line of vegan dairy ice creams. Seven new vegan ice cream flavors, including Swedish Mint Chip, Choklad Choklad and Karamell Swirl, will complement N!CK’S existing light ice cream line.
“A vegan ice cream that doesn’t taste like a vegan ice cream, that’s the magic of what happens when you combine industry-leading food science with a passion for great tasting, better-for-you ice cream,” said Niclas Luthman, founder and chief science officer of NICK’S.
This innovation is made possible with Perfect Day’s unique animal-free dairy proteins, which are identical to the milk protein found in milk but made without a single cow. Perfect Day partners with widely loved brands to create animal-free dairy products with the same real taste, texture and nutritional qualities of dairy, in sustainable ways that forgo the usual downsides, like factory farming, lactose, hormones and antibiotics.
Ryan Pandya, co-founder and CEO of Perfect Day, said, “We’re excited to partner with NICK’S on a vegan take of their flagship Swedish-style ice cream, delivering all of the taste people love without a single cow. Our versatile animal-free protein allows NICK's fans to enjoy the healthier ice cream they crave without compromising on the delicious, melty, silky taste of dairy."
Key features and benefits of the new N!CK’S Vegan line include:
Keto-friendly – only 3-7g net carbs per pint
Low calories – 70% fewer calories than traditional premium ice cream
No added sugar – won’t give you a sugar crash

About Perfect Day
Founded in 2014 by CEO and co-founder, Ryan Pandya, and co-founder, Perumal Gandhi — Perfect Day is on a mission to create a kinder, greener tomorrow by developing new ways to make the foods you love today — starting in the dairy aisle. Instead of relying on cows, the Bay Area startup utilizes fermentation to create proprietary 'flora-made' dairy protein. Perfect Day's ingenious animal-free protein can be used across a range of products — from ice cream and milk to cheese and butter — to deliver the same taste and texture of dairy without the environmental, animal welfare, or food safety concerns. Foods made with Perfect Day protein can be labeled as vegan and lactose-free and are coming soon to a fridge near you as the company expands its network of food and dairy manufacturing and foodservice partners.
