"Hola, mucho gusto.
I'm Laura and I'm a little loco for ice cream."
Here's the scoop:
I grew up in Puerto Rico where frozen confections are a favorite treat given the constant tropical weather year round. We are a culture that loves piraguas (snow cones), limbers (ice cups) and tropical fruit sorbets and ice creams. One of my favorite family traditions growing up was to visit a famous ice cream shop that made the wackiest flavors. This was my first exposure to unconventional ice cream flavors like corn, avocado, jelly roll, rice, red bean and other tropical fruits more typically used for juices.
Through a bit of research I discovered that there was a growing trend in handcrafted ice cream, especially the kind pushing the boundaries out there in terms of flavors, but not so many that catered to those looking for a dairy free, plant based alternative...and not ANY in Hong Kong!
Around the fall of 2015 I wanted to share my ice cream and get feedback on what I was making. The response was so positive that it didn't take much for me to decide to pursue it as a business.
I founded Wild Mylk and took it to the public for the first time in March of 2016. This micro enterprise has had the opportunity to spread the vegan ice cream love through fairs, markets, catering , school visits, corporate events and event sponsorship's. I have been pursuing consistency, adventure and premium quality in the ice cream and also founded a sister company, IT*S DOUGHPE. I see a future were desserts are naughty but nice...truly a new tradition of fun and decadence. I think we can all enjoy and appreciate food made with kinder plant based ingredients. I want WILD MYLK and IT*S DOUGHPE to be a part of this movement. I hope to meet you and be able to cross paths so you can enjoy them too!
