The Fancy Food Show in New York City is the Holy Mecca of gourmet food goodness. I had the opportunity to explore the products of over 2400 vendors, featuring over 180,000 products at this year’s show. I sought out products that were innovative, delicious and of course, appealing to women. Here’s what I found.
Wine ice cream
By far, one of the most flavorful products I sampled was from a company called Mercer’s Dairy located in upstate New York. Their Wine Ice Cream line was simply outstanding. Six different flavors range from Cherry Merlot, Peach White Zinfandel to my personal favorite, Royal White Riesling.
In the past, I have tried all sorts of gourmet products that boast a wine flavor. I have always been disappointed. This ice cream was creamy, silky and frankly, tasted exactly like the wine that it was named after. Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream is distributed all over North America in specialty grocers and can also be purchased online at www.mercersdairy.com.
