Always stop by when in the area

I always have to stop by for some dessert when I’m in the area. Their ice cream is really good and I appreciate that it doesn’t have a coconut taste to it and has the right texture. I also like how they usually have some Asian inspired flavors.

Creamy nice cream!

I have gone here a few times, and any flavor I get is so creamy and good! There are at least 10 different flavors at any time. They also have floats and other nice cream treats available. I recommend this place and would give it a 10 if it were available!

Pros: Amazing flavors, Great parking, Clean, neat, today store

Cons: Wish it were closer to me

BEST Vegan Ice Cream

They offer a variety of flavors for everyone, and they also give samples to help you pick which flavor you want. I visited 11/30/22 around 8:30pm and the woman working was so helpful and kind; some of the best customer service I’ve ever received! They also have many different cones you can pick from which is a plus in my opinion. The scoops of ice cream are portioned very well, I had one scoop on a cake cone and I was satisfied. Hug Life is amazing, and I wish there was locations all over the country!

Pros: All Vegan, So many different flavors , Affordable

Great Vegan Ice Cream

Lots of different options, good vegan ice cream.

Only note is there were 3 security guards in the plaza in the evening so might not be the safest area but was fine while we were there.

Best ice cream shop around

All vegan and totally delicious. You can get brownie and cookie sundaes too with sauces and toppings. There are tons of ice cream flavors to choose from. I always get the taro ice cream brownie sundae with sprinkles. This place is top notch!

Awesome vegan ice cream

We stopped into Hug Life ice cream today. The staff was pleasant and polite, and the scoops were generous. Everyone enjoyed their ice cream, including my omnivore wife and kids. I had the Rocky Road. It was delicious. I was thrilled to be able to enjoy my childhood favorite, in a vegan form. I don't live near Hug Life, but when I'm in the area, I will definitely be stopping in again.

Pros: Vegan ice cream, smoothies, and brownies, Lots of flavors, Helpful staff

I'd give it 10 stars!

(When I stopped in it was during the pandemic)

Hug life is LIFE! When we arrived they had approximately 10 different flavors. Cookie dough, cookie butter, java, mint chocolate chip, berry, and many more! They have several cone options including gluten free! They also have shakes and plenty of toppings. It's a must try if you're in the area!

Pros: Easy parking

Cons: There are no cons to vegan ice cream.

tacos and ice cream of course

Leaving old review for nostalgia of when taco were served at the hug life. Everything remains the same. High quality customer service, product and experience. I choose to live the hug life

Ok I have so much love for this place and the owners. My daughter and I came in the place was super cute and super tiny, But with some cool picnic tables and games at the tables. The place was clean not cluttered.

I'm not sure if we were super lucky or unlucky. They were out of stock on just about everything. So we were lucky that we got the last 2 fishless tacos but unlucky that we didn't get to sample more tacos.

Ok so we ordered the fishless tacos and sampled the some ice cream while we waited. We tried the Berry, thai tea and the earl great tea flavor, I loved all 3.

Our tacos arrived and we ordered the chips and salsa. The tacos were really good, the fish was flakey and not greasy at all, I loved the cabbage and sauce that topped it. Seriously good!

Then it was time for ice-cream, they are trying a new product it's a custom drumstick. This was fun and delicious they offer 3 types of cone, then any of the ice cream flavor you want then a crunchy chocolate shell with your choice of toppings.
I opted for earl great ice cream, in a cinnamon cone With pecans. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful not overly sweet and unlike most vegan ice creams it was overpowered by what ever the base is (usually coconut milk) they have this down. My daughter got the taro and it was just as good as good, she opted for coconut topping. The berry was so good we took a bit home with us.

The owners were personable, totally likeable. We are going to be back and will be bringing friends.

Best ice cream I’ve ever tasted in my life!

This place is and their toppings are legit. The best deal is to buy a pint and take it home. Their cookie butter ice cream is divine also the black sesame seed ice cream rocks!

Pros: Also have a lot of vegan snack options.

Best Vegan Ice Cream Ever!

All I can say is I’m glad a place like this exists. This stuff is my vice. If you haven’t tried it out, go!!! Unless you don’t want to become addicted. In which case, umm, don’t.
