Most people freak out when they hear the words ‘vegan food’. It’s like all they think vegans eat is a giant bowl of raw kale for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh, and tofu (I hate tofu by the way). So then when you show them delicious things like vegan cookies, cakes, ice creams… they can’t believe it’s vegan.
One of these people is my boyfriend Simon, one of the biggest carnivorous I know. He’s Danish so I guess that explains it. When I started my vegan period, he hated being at my house because I didn’t have “anything” to eat, which resulted in him finishing my whole jar of peanut butter in a day as revenge. Thanks. But in the end, he was starting to get used to it and actually enjoying the meals I cooked. Now he is actually pretty open minded and the word ‘vegan’ doesn’t scare him anymore! Or not as much at least.
I had been telling him about this vegan bakery in Camden Town for ages, called Cookies and Scream, and last weekend we finally went. I knew they were going to be good, but not that good. And Simon was absolutely blown away, he couldn’t even believe it was vegan.
He got some coconut cake with chocolate and a peanut butter and jelly cookie, and I had an ice-cream sandwich, which had two AMAZING chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream.
Whether you’re vegan or not, you HAVE to try this place next time you’re in Camden Town! Or just go to Camden Town to try this place. Believe me, it’s more than worth it.
