Wine and ice cream are irresistible on their own but even more heavenly together. Thus, the folks at Mercer's creamery in Boonville, New York have taken a gamble on launching their own line of wine ice cream so you can eat your feelings and binge drink at the same time.
Mercer's Wine Ice Cream isn't your typical wine-flavored frozen treat. The company takes pride in the fact each pint is made with 15 percent butterfat and up to 5 percent alcohol by volume. That means if you must be at least 21 years of age to enjoy it.
If the thought of a wine-ice cream combo isn't enough to make you melt the company's eight amazing flavors will: Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Peach White Zinfandel, Port, Red Raspberry, Chardonnay Riesling, Spice, Strawberry Sparkling.
Mercer's Wine Ice Cream is available at a store near you or by calling 1-866-MERCERS (637-2377).
