And you thought there’d be a picture of food here, didn’t you? Well, so did I, but I apprently have a few things to learn about my new camera.
My friend’s wedding yesterday was in Cambridge, MA, so on my way home, I crossed the river and took a detour into Boston, to stop at Wheeler’s Frozen Desserts, home to Black Label Vegan Ice Cream. First awesome thing: it was after closing, but they were still open, so that rocked. Second: look at the door. It doesn’t say anything about “vegan.” You could well walk right into there, order an ice cream, and never know that you were eating a vegan treat. Third: it is AWESOME. I had the peanut butter chip ice cream, which rocked. I also had a taste of the Mexican Chocolate, which was also great. Awesome place, all around. I will definitely go back next time I’m in the Boston area.
Also cool- they have an ice cream truck! They go around to various places in the Boston area to sell their ice cream. I didn’t take a picture of the truck that was parked outside (hey, I was tired), but I can share a non-Wheeler’s ice cream truck related story. In my 10th grade French class, we were given an assignment to write and illustrate a children’s story. My story was a little twisted. It was about a boy named Jacques who was run over by an ice cream truck:
Of course, I am sure that Wheeler’s, being a vegan operation, would never do that. And hey, Jacques was just fine. He just broke his leg and got to be in traction for a while. It had a happy ending!
