We had Vegan Soft-Serve Hemp Ice Cream at Seattle Hempfest, and it was Excellent

Ice cream with the vast nutritional benefit of hemp, with the smooth, creamy and decadent flavor and texture of the best soft-serve you’ve ever had: That’s what we stumbled uponhempicecream at Seattle Hempfest this weekend, where we were able to purchase hemp soft serve ice cream, located at a booth which also sold hemp burgers, hemp lattes and hemp bakery items.
