Wheelers is excited about opening its South End shop and so is Boston and so are we!!
For five years, Cambridge-based Wheeler (a self-described "ice cream designer" who, in true artiste fashion, rarely uses his last name) and partner Damion Lord (a former Carvel employee, he developed lactose intolerance after eating too much soft-serve) have been selling their soy-based treats by special order. This month, with their planned South End shop Wheeler's Frozen Desserts, they're bringing their product to the open market, offering as many as 20 to 30 rotating varieties. Most spring from Wheeler's imagination, but he's more than happy to create custom flavors like chocolate pretzel crunch and sweet potato on request. "If you told me, ‘When I was in sixth grade, my favorite flavor was marshmallow bubblegum,' I'll do that," he says.
-excerpt from Amy Traverso's Oh Soy Tasty, Boston Magazine April 2008Congratulations, Wheelers. When are you coming to Atlanta?
Anyone have any great recipes to go with the icecream or any recipes that includes their drinks? I'm looking for some grown folk cupcake ideas.
