I scream, you scream, we all scream for WINE-CREAM.
The sky has fallen, fat ladies are singin' a slurry tune, pigs are flying everywhere - the wonderful world in which we live just invented, you guessed it, wine ice cream - aka wine cream. It's not just wine flavored ice cream - that would be unnecessary and potentially gross - it's 5% alcohol ice cream in the following delightful flavors: Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Peach White Zinfandel, Port, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Riesling & Spice (the recently launched holiday flavor). The branding is clean, cute and something I sure as hell can get behind.
This 60 year old gem of an ice cream shop became a 100% female run business out of upstate New York in early 2013 - and well, women everywhere (with access to wine cream) are stoked on it.
Join the other some 11k fans on Facebook for updates galore. I'm still a smidge unclear on their ability to ship though their Facebook comments seem to suggest they do. I suppose shipping - on dry ice - may be expensive though so stay tuned on developments of that nature.
In the mean time, peruse cute pics below and imagine the wonder that will come from wine cream drunk.
