I tried all the vegan soft serve in Ottawa

I tried all the vegan soft serve in Ottawa. I probably missed a few but I did try a lot of them. I have lived in Ottawa for two years and I was still transitioning from vegetarian to vegan when I moved here. I don’t remember having a lot of soft serve in Vancouver when I did eat dairy. I only remember having it at McDonald’s and buffets. I didn’t even know vegan soft serve was a thing until I moved to Ottawa. I tried six places The Merry Dairy, Oddburger, Little Jo Berry’s, Chocolate Favouris, IKEA, PastelXCoco, and 2 bonuses dole whip from Cinnaholic and the plant based dilly bar from Dairy Queen. I also went to Mavericks but they have been having supply issues and the soft serve is currently not vegan. Let me know if I missed any and maybe I’ll update the post in the future.  The Merry Dairy was the first vegan soft serve I had in Ottawa. I remember thinking I had to wait in line to get into the store only to learn soft serve was at the truck with no line. I was super excited that I

2024 Contest Wins updated July 2024

Contest win #5 and #6 are actually both prepaid credit cards. I don’t often win credit cards so pretty amazing that I won two in July. The first one was a $50 USD Amex card that I won from the Jamie Kern Lima show during her podcast launch. I’m a huge fan of her way back since she was selling IT Cosmetics on the shopping channel. I had already listened to the pre launch podcast which was amazing Oprah was the first guest so I decided to join the launch party on YouTube as she was giving away a lot of gift cards. I was surprised I won in the first round. I received the card unfortunately I can only use it in the US but it doesn’t expire for years and it is very likely I will visit the US again. The second prize was a $25 CDN Visa card from a coke contest. If you are not following @yourcouponingsis you should because she posts reminders of contests daily. I already knew about this contest and the no purchase entry emails I had found because I read the fine print on everything but what I hadn’t realized is those same email links could be used daily. I learned about reusing the link from yourcouponingsis. This really worked out for me because those emails were saved in my trash folder and all but one link had been deleted. That one last link was the one I won on. I have received the card and added to one of the online apps I use frequently. The value of the two gift cards in CDN is $90.00

Total value of prizes July 2024 $241
Contest win #4 is a $25 gift card for Beavertails. I love beavertails in Ottawa because the turnover is high and the pastry is always fresh. A beavertail is a fried sweet pastry kind of like a donut. There are no animals involved in many of their flavours so I can easily get a vegan one just by asking for no butter. They do mark which flavours can be vegan on their menus. My favourite is apple pie. I get beavertails regularly but I’m waiting until my friends come to visit to use the gift card and am looking forward to it. 

Total value of prizes so far June 2024 $151.

Contest win #3 was a medium mixed produce box from OddbunchCanada. Until this contest I didn’t know much about OddbunchCanada. I can’t believe they are selling a produce box of this size and quality for only $32 plus $4 delivery. It is a lot more produce than I was expecting to get and it’s very good quality. Last week during a trip to Montreal I may have complained that I needed to eat some vegetables after all the croissants and sweets that problem is solved. I will likely order a small box $20 from OddbunchCanada in the future. 

Total Value of Prizes so far March 2024 $131

Contest win #2 for 2024 was a Queen Cake from Strawberry Blonde Bakery. A very yummy vegan cake. I packed some up to share with my friends. I’m not sure what this cake is valued at but cakes range from $44-100 on the website. I will go with a conservative $50. 

Total Value of Prizes so far March 2024 $95 

My first win of the year happened to be while I was visiting Vancouver in February. I won two tickets to the home and garden show and a package of Noods (vegan noodles). Thank you to Plant Based Workshop value $45.
