Vegan Ice Cream Requests for Oprah . . .

To everyone sending us pre-paid orders of vegan ice cream to ship to Oprah, we would like to say thank you! We are honored that everyone thinks our ice cream is so tasty and are willing to pay out of their own pocket to ship to America's top talk show host. However, we have a bit of bad news. Recently we contacted Oprah's studios and apparently they do not accept unsolicited packages or samples. So unfortunately, we must ask everyone to please stop sending us pre-paid orders! We are unable to ship the ice cream to Oprah and we definitely do not want to take your money if we cannot fulfill your request. Thank you so much for thinking of us - we hope you understand!

Additionally, we would like to say THANK YOU! to everyone stopping by and picking up some ice cream + goodies at our shop. Business has been awesome and we appreciate your support!

Wheeler's Frozen Desserts in the Beer Advocate!

Hey everyone! Christine Liu wrote an awesome article about us in the Beer Wares feature of the Beer Advocate Magazine. Here is the link the to the PDF, but this is the transcribed version in case you have trouble opening it. Thanks Christine!

Beer Wares by Christine Liu
Wheeler's Black Label Vegan Ice Cream

"Consider this pie-in-the-sky idea: Imagine any beer of your choice - a chocolatey-rich Stout, a refreshing Mexico quaff, your own genius homebrew - transformed into ice cream. Wheeler del Torro, Boston-based founder and mastermind behind his eponymous line of custom vegan ice creams and sorbets, can make that cream dream come true. With immaculately accurate flavor profile intensity, he can work anything, beer or otherwise, into a customized dessert. His repertoire is unlimited, and his specialty is alcohol-based flavors. He's done a heady Sam Adams Utopias ice cream and has been known to create a killer sorbet using entire bottles of Dom Perignon Rose.

"'I can make any flavor ice cream that you can come up with,' del Torro says. 'I can make absolutely anything.' His spin is a vegan one, mastering recipes produced without animal products or bi-products - instead of cow milk or cream, the desserts contain soy, coconut, rice or almond milk. But before you start missing the dairy, just consider that a very empathetic carnivore (i.e., me) absolutely went nuts over Wheeler's product. It really is that good. Custom flavors require at least a purchase of three gallons' worth (one batch) and del Torro 'would prefer to work with vegan-approved alcohol.' So if your selection is safe from animal filtration methods such as isinglass or bone char, you're good to go. Try not to go too crazy in the meantime thinking about enjoying a beer float with a perfectly complementary beer ice cream imparting cold, melty, frosty goodness."
