Wink – It’s Ice Cream

When it’s time for cake and ice cream no kid wants to be left out. Nor do grown-ups for that matter. If someone in your household is allergic to milk products Wink Frozen Desserts can help put the ice cream back on your shopping list. Diagnosed with dairy intolerance and celiac disease at the age of 17, New York resident Gabriel Wolff founded Wink, a vegan frozen dessert that is 100 percent gluten, soy, wheat, dairy, tree nut and peanut free! We tested the vanilla and cake batter flavors (two top sellers) and would never have guessed it’s derived from yellow peas. At 35 calories per half-cup serving it’s a bargain on the waistline as well. The product is currently available online at www.winkfrozendesserts.com.
