Merry Christmas from Wheeler’s Frozen Dessert Co!

Pin It!

What? What’s that you say? You say that Christmas came and went almost a month ago?

Au Contraire, my blogging friends! Christmas showed up at my house just last week, in the form of FIVE containers of vegan ice cream! The company is based in Boston, but the super-friendly Wheeler’s folks felt so sorry for me down in Dallas that they shipped me some of their ice cream so that I, too, could partake in the delectation!

(Pictured above– Five flavors of Wheeler’s Vegan ice cream: Peanut Butter, Piña Colada, Kahlua, Pumpkin, and Chocolate-Chocolate Chip.)

Now all I needed were some cohorts to share in my sweet feast.

I recruited two friends (neither of whom is a vegan), and, equipped with quite a lot of spoons, we commenced the ice cream-tasting. Friend #2 was skeptical, but still open to the possibility that vegan ice cream might actually taste good. Friend #1, however, was downright close-minded. “I can’t believe I am actually going to try this stuff,” she grumbled.

Ignoring her whining, I set a container of Piña Colada in front of her. She reluctantly picked up a spoon and, scowling at me, placed a tiny amount of ice cream on her tongue. Watching her face in the next few seconds was priceless– her expression quickly changed from distrust… to disbelief… to sheer delight.

“Well?” I asked, raising my eyebrows at her.

Friend #1 grinned sheepishly, announcing, “It’s actually really good!”

Hearing this stamp of approval, Friend #2 grabbed the unopened Peanut Butter ice cream from the counter and elegantly danced her spoon into the smooth, creamy confection.

“Oh wow, Katie, this is DELICIOUS! I hope you’re not expecting me to leave you any,” she gushed, as she scooped some more peanut butter ice cream into a bowl and topped it with banana slices and chocolate syrup.

Friend #1, meanwhile, had moved on from the Piña Colada and was helping herself to some vegan Kahlua ice cream.

As for me? Well, what kind of chocolate-covered vegan would I be if I didn’t go straight for the Chocolate-Chocolate chip? Although I was more than impressed with all five of the flavors, this one was definitely my favorite. With each bite, rich bursts of chocolate joy shot through my mouth.

    NOOOOO way! For one thing, that’s *awesome* that they sent you all that ice cream, it sounds so very good (chocolate bursting through your mouth and all!), and that nutritional information? I figured this Wheeler’s Wondercream stuff would be oh so decadent and guilt-making, but 80 calories a serving???????

    I want Wheelers, too! ;______;

  2. Veggie says:

    Wow, that looks awesome. I’d love to try some. Those flavours sound so good. Yum!

  3. VegMomma says:

    Ooooh! That is exciting. I was just thinking outside of the box with the cupcake thing. 😉

  4. Romina says:

    I love it when non-vegans find out that vegans aren’t deprived. Mmmm. That’s awesome that they sent all that to you!

  5. Sam says:

    Okay, I’m jealous. It is NOT fair that you get to eat that amazing ice cream and I’m stuck with nothing but old popsicles…

  6. Ruby Red Vegan says:

    Hey, you lucky girl! Glad you had such an awesome ice cream feast, and that your friends were convinced of the awesomeness of vegan desserts! The pumpkin ice cream sounds amazing… and the chocolate-chip… and the peanut butter… and I bet the Kahlua might be fab too, except I have no idea what Kahlua is supposed to taste like!

  7. Theresa says:

    You are one spoiled vegan. Those are such creative flavours! And it’s great that you succeeded in changing the opinion of 4 non-vegans! Score one for the herbivores.

  8. Paulina says:

    Oh.My.Gosh. I am so jealous now! I’ve been seeing Wheeler’s Icecream on a lot of blogs lately so it’s about time I got myself some! Did you actually get yours for free? I’d love to try some, it looks absolutely decadent!

  9. Lizzy says:

    Oh my god that’s so extraordinarily nice of them, aww. See, good people exist in this world *coughs*vegans*coughs* 😉
    And all the varieties <3 I must say I am quite jealous haha!
    I’ve never had soy ice cream before, I should really try it out because the way you described that chocolate ice cream it has to be vegantastic!

    I had to laugh so hard when I read the explanation of your friend’s facial reaction to it. Nice to see that your parents enjoyed them aswell and what an awesome comment from your mom (who knows, maybe someday you will) 😉

  10. Cookiemouse says:

    So you did post about ice cream after all! They look delicious. I have never tried pumpkin ice cream and you make me very curious about how it tastes.

  11. Jenny says:

    Wow! Sounds good! Will they always ship out of state, or was it a one time occasion?

  12. Ashasarala says:

    I am sooooo jealous! How’d you get them to send you all that? I suppose they’d never do the same for me, seeing as I live right in Boston.

    I’ve only ever tried Peanut Butter and that was enough to make me believe that this ice cream is the best ice cream on earth!

    …Maybe if I tell them that, they’ll send me some, eh? 😉

  13. Jennifer says:

    You are so very lucky, and I would be with you starting with the chocolate.

    I wish they would send me some yummy vegan ice cream!

  14. Rural Vegan says:

    You know, we’re currently buried in a blanket of snow with more coming down as we speak, and you STILL make me jealous that you have vegan ice cream! Somehow I must try this stuff.

  15. Vegetation says:

    Jealous!!!! I wonder if they’d ship to Australia?

  16. russ says:

    In all my years, I never tried vegan ice cream, so I can only imagine… You all have nice big smiles though, so it really must’ve been good 🙂

  17. Vegyogini says:

    You lucky duck! They said they’d send me some, so I’m trying to wait patiently!!!

  18. Melisser; the Urban Housewife says:

    DAMN GIRL! You got to try more flavors than I; color me jealous! I’m glad everyone enjoyed them!

  19. Lizzy says:

    Aww no, that’s so unfair to get locked out when it’s snowing, poor you!
    Luckily I live in a big building and sat in the staircase in my sweatpants. You cannot believe just how glad I was that I had just changed from a skirt to pants and threw on another jacket, because it did get a little cold out there.

    I read your post about the pudding discontinuation, that’s so sad. I know I would’ve done the same thing as you though, stock up! It still sucks though, but maybe you’ll find an equally(or close) tasty pudding. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for sure 😉

    Chocolate covered almonds, ohhhh <3
    I used to make chocolate covered chopped almonds a lot! Small heaps of heaven, ha ha!
