There’s two main variables in ice cream: quality and type of ingredients. Thanks to these two things there are innumerable flavors, limited only by imagination.
If you sample two ice creams of the same flavor but with different quality of ingredients next to each other the differences are almost guaranteed to be prominent – the higher quality ingredients will shine and give the best flavors possible.
I’ve made my own ice cream before, experimenting with ingredients and flavors, and have come to a few conclusions. The best ice creams use quality ingredients. For example, using Snowville Creamery’s grassfed creams (our favorite!) or using the whole vanilla bean pod over vanilla extract for a vanilla ice cream base.
Which is why we love Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams: the perfect example of quality ingredients and ingenuity in ice creams.
