Wildgood, a plant-based ice cream and the first non-dairy frozen dessert made with extra virgin olive oil, can now be delivered directly to consumers' doors. The brand is offering nationwide shipping (with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii) for orders placed on the Wildgood website. This expansion comes on the heels of a successful grocery store roll-out in select stores across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region earlier this spring.
Made for ice cream lovers, Wildgood is creamy and decadent yet surprisingly lower in calories and saturated fat. The brand launches with eight flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Coffee, Mango, Pistachio, Chocolate Hazelnut, Sea Salt Caramel and Mint Chocolate Chip. Each flavor is made from pronounceable vegan ingredients and contains less than 2g of saturated fat per serving.
Born out of a passion for personal and planetary health, Greek artisanal ice cream maker and Wildgood’s founder Sotiris Tsichlopoulos, who also founded one of the most beloved ice cream brands in Athens, Greece, crafted the frozen treat with a single goal. "It’s been my mission to share a plant-based ice cream that would win over even the most discerning ice cream connoisseur,” explained Tsichlopoulos. “I created Wildgood to deliver the deliciousness of premium ice cream without compromising taste and texture.”
Using olives pressed at his family’s ancient groves in Greece, Tsichlopoulos spent eight years on a quest to perfect the ultimate replacement for ice cream. Tsichlopoulos believes extra virgin olive oil is the perfect starting point for a plant-based ice cream that will fit seamlessly into a naturally healthier, happier, and more sustainable way of life.
Wildgood uses no alternative milks, just extra virgin olive oil, and a handful of easy-to-read plant-based ingredients. As a cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet, olive oil is one of the most versatile ingredients on the planet. After harvesting and pressing in Greece, the super-premium olive oil used in Wildgood is sent to the U.S. where filtered water, plant-based proteins and fibers and premium ingredients such as organic coffee, fresh pistachios and Alphonso mango are churned to create the finished product. The result is a light, simple, yet incredibly flavorful and creamy non-dairy frozen dessert.
“We have been so excited by the reviews to date from dessert aficionados and ice cream lovers all around the country who have been sharing their reactions and testimonials on social media,” said Tsichlopoulos. “Media and influencers have also listed us as a must-try. We believe Wildgood can be a real game changer, not just for those who are leading a dairy-free lifestyle, but for anyone looking to change things up in a healthier and delicious way.”
You can purchase Wildgood on the company website for $9 per pint (plus tax and shipping). Wildgood is also available at select grocery stores in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, including: Wegmans, Whole Foods, ShopRite and Stop & Shop. It will also be available at select Harris Teeter locations starting May 15, 2021.
