Roll your own gourmet ice cream


I quit smoking one hundred and seventy days ago, and I've discovered that ice cream is a suitable substitute for nicotine. While reading Gourmet magazine today I discovered a company that combined my two favorite things: technology and dessert. By combining the magic of frozen cream with the power of the internet, Chicago based Ecreamery lets me point and click custom flavor concoctions in a web browser.

The process starts by selecting one of three milk fat ratios: 8% Gelato Mix, 12% Classic Mix, and 14% Super Premium. Higher milk fat percentages produce denser ice creams with creamier consistencies. Ecreamery offers seventy-seven base flavors, and by matching two flavors with two mixed-in toppings the variety and choice is almost beyond comprehension. I've never tried dill weed or chocolate merlot as an ice cream, but I'm tempted to give it a shot.

Shipping options are limited to only two sizes: four pints or four quarts. Those cute cartons do not come cheap. $100 per gallon doesnít include the cost of dry ice packing and two day shipping, but thatís the cost of a cutting edge ice cream addiction.
