In the beginning, there were cheesecakes.

Well, at least when it comes to Josef’s Cheesecake Cupcakes in Chippewa Falls.

And now, there’s cheesecake ice cream – a brand-new treat to beat the heat. Owner and cheesecake extraordinaire Nicholas Weiner whips up his treats fresh every day, so customers get a surprise as to which flavor of cheesecake is available.

Now, Weiner has whipped up a creamy and dreamy new treat: ice cream. And the Chippewa Valley is already gobbling up the sweetness, which is only available in a one-quart size. Besides the flavors, this ice cream is different from others by the way it’s made.

“Our cheesecake ice cream is made with cream cheese instead of a lot of milk or cream,” Weiner said. “Then, we add fresh ingredients to make whichever flavor I decide to make or has been requested.”

Flavor possibilities are endless, Weiner said, with over 450 flavors of cheesecake, and many more possibilities with the new addition of ice cream. Just like his cheesecakes, he makes a handful of flavors fresh every day and when those flavors are sold out, they are gone for the rest of the day.
