Last month, I was delighted when Wheeler's Black Label Ice Cream offered to send me some samples to taste-test. I had tasted their heavenly ice creams once, back at the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival in October, and had become enamored immediately. Like many other bloggers who have reviewed this ice cream, I'm an unabashed fan. I have seen the future, and it is Wheeler's: decadent and creamy ice cream that comes in fabulous and tantalizing flavors that would make anyone's heart melt. This is the ice cream to serve to those picky and skeptical omnivores in your life.
This ice cream is enough to make me contemplate moving to Boston. It might have a similar effect on you. Until then, sit back, relax, and let the photos tide you over.
Here are the flavors I got: (clockwise from top left) Black Russian (yes! booze and ice cream - what more could you ask for?), chocolate coconut (an underutilized and awesome flavor combo), and peanut butter chocolate chip (made this non-PB-dessert-lover swoon). You might notice that my tower of ice cream had 4 containers, not the 3 you see here. Well you see,
x-treme ice cream close-ups!
taking tiny tastes in tiny spoons- the best way to savor the ice cream- and delay the inevitable sadness that will come when my temporary stash of this miracle from the vegan gods is depleted. Sigh.
I want to thank Wheeler's for letting me taste and review their ice creams, and humbly beg them to start making their products available in Syracuse ASAP.
