FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sweet Jane’s Introduces Dairy-Free and Traditional Ice Cream Treats to Astoria
At 120 calories per pop, the Vegan treats bring guiltless indulgence in time for summer
Astoria, NY. May 27, 2014 – A new ice cream shop called Sweet Jane’s Frozen Desserts is now in offering refreshing summer treats in Astoria. The store’s key offerings include dairy-free ice cream and made-on-premise dairy-free fudgesicle pops, along with traditional ice cream and Italian ices. Located at 27-17 24th Avenue, in the heart of Astoria, Queens, Sweet Jane’s fills a void for delicious, sweet and low-calorie summer frozen novelties.
**** GRAND OPENING ALERT: The public is invited to join the Grand Opening festivities on Saturday, May 31, 2014, commencing at 1:00 p.m. Activities will include a ceremonial ribbon cutting with Costa Constantinides, Queens City Councilperson. All guests are invited to try free samples of ice cream. ****
“As a long time Astoria resident, this community is my community and I wanted to bring them the absolute best frozen treats,” said Jane McGinn, Creator and Owner of Sweet Jane’s. “By offering a vegan treat that tastes just as good, if not better, than dairy, my hope is to provide a treat that appeals to both the old-school Astorians and the recent wave of fresh residents who are bringing new vibrancy to the area.”
Sweet Jane’s Frozen Desserts offers the best of both worlds: the goodness of a healthy, environmentally-conscious product and the indulgence of delectable and creamy ice cream in one treat. ”I believe we can treat ourselves and indulge ourselves while respecting our world as well,” continued McGinn. “It doesn’t have to be bad for you to taste oh-so-good.”
Fudgesicle flavors will change daily and include: “A Crazy Li’l Thing Called Chocolate,” “Bohemian Raspberry,” “Mellow Mango,” “Rhubarb Strawberry Pie” and “Buzz Me Up Butter Cup.” Along with her dairy-free ice creams, Sweet Jane’s will carry traditional ice cream made with non-rBST milk and organic ingredients. Jane is also developing a line of Italian ices which are High Fructose Corn Syrup-free and will debut in June.
In addition to the desserts, Sweet Jane’s is incorporating a respect and care for the environment into every aspect of the store by using recyclable or recycled serving supplies and green cleaning products. “My paints, cabinets and counter-tops were retrieved at Build it Green, NYC, which provides low cost, salvage surplus building materials,” said McGinn. “My counter-tops were once a bowling alley lane in the Bronx and they have been restored to show the beauty of the wood.”
Sweet Jane’s Frozen Desserts is located at 27-17 24th Avenue in Astoria. For more information and updated flavors, visit Sweet Jane’s Frozen Desserts page on Facebook. Follow Sweet Jane’s on Twitter @sweet_janes, for daily flavor updates.
