Vegan eating at IKEA
With the news breaking yesterday that IKEA donuts/doughnuts are suitable for vegans - (the plain ring sugary ones) we decided to do a post about the growing number of vegan-friendly food that the world's largest Swedish furniture store has to offer and plan to offer in the near future.

IKEA veggie balls are suitable for vegans and available in stores now! In the restaurant to eat as a sit down meal and the food hall frozen section to take home with you.
Coming August 2018
Vegan hot dogs are on the horizon. Here is the statement from IKEA:
"Ready for some tasty news? IKEA Food is testing a Veggie hot dog in the IKEA Malmö store in Sweden! If you're around, try it and tell us what you think of it. Adding a Veggie hot dog to the IKEA Bistro range is part of our ambitions to include more plant-based ingredients in our food offer. The final version of the Veggie hot dog will be available at IKEA stores in Europe from August 2018. "
Coming Summer 2019
Vegan soft-serve ice cream is coming! Here is what IKEA said:
"100% plant-based, 100% delicious. Today we are sharing our ambitions to introduce plant-based ice cream to the IKEA Bistro. The development has started and we aim to bring this alternative to dairy-based soft ice to IKEA Bistros in Summer 2019."
Just a few days ago IKEA posted on Instagram the following:
" We're heading back to the IKEA Food Lab in Malmö to continue our work on some tasty plant-based alternatives." with an image that read - "More plants for the many people"
So, fingers crossed, I think there will be plenty more vegan food coming our way!
