Punk rock band Alkaline Trio recently unveiled a folksy jingle they wrote for the vegan dessert company Vegan Treats. The song debuted this week on the Web site for music magazine Alternative Press.
Vegan Treats was founded by Pennsylvania native Danielle Konya and its cakes and other sweets are distributed in Pennsylvania, Baltimore, New York City, New Jersey, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The desserts have a number of celebrity fans, including actress Alicia Silverstone, former presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, and musical acts AFI, The Beastie Boys, and Moby, who features the desserts on the menu of his New York City vegan restaurant Teany. Konya stresses that all of her creations are free of cholesterol and trans fats.
