Sweet Freedom Bakery

Who: VEGdaily Co-founder and Ecorazzi Senior Editor Michael Parrish DuDell
What: Some serious dessert-eating action.
Where: Sweet Freedom Bakery, Philadelphia, Penn.
When: Monday, January 25, 2010
Why: Because every time a vegan eats dessert an angel gets his wings.

If you ask me, there’s nothing greater in this world than healthy, vegan baked goods. True love? A million dollars? World peace? Nope, nope, nope! None of those hold a candle to the tasty, cruelty-free goodness that is a vegan dessert.

Just last week, while speaking at Temple Law School, I discovered Sweet Freedom—a brand-new Philadelphia-based bakery that’s pumping out pure deliciousness by the second!

What makes Sweet Freedom so darn sweet? First, the treats are all vegan (duh) and gluten-free. In addition, the shop never bakes with corn, wheat, peanuts, or soy. Moreover, it only uses natural, unrefined sugars and dutifully avoids all toxic chemicals and preservatives.

In Sweet Freedom's own words:
Philadelphia is a city known for its soft pretzels, cheese-steaks, and all things chock-full of gluten and dairy. For those of us with food allergies and intolerances, or who are mindful of how our diet impacts our health and well-being, it can be difficult to nearly impossible to find a tasty treat for our sensitive systems. Not any longer! Sweet Freedom is here to serve as a safe haven to children and adults alike who have been deprived of the simple pleasure of eating a freshly baked goodie.
Because I love to support vegan operations (and because I happen to know a lot vegans who enjoy baked goods), I bought five or six things to take back to NYC, my favorite being the Cookie Sandwich. I promise that after just two bites, you’ll find yourself proudly exclaiming, “By the beard of Zeus!”

A sweet sampling of allergen-free baked goods

Long story short, this all-vegan bakery proves that cruelty-free desserts cannot only be super delicious, but also nutritious and good for the planet. How sweet it is!
