Made with cheese powder, it is a nostalgic bite of the macaroni and cheese we all love, but ice cream. It’s a simple yet complex idea. Your brain may not understand what is happening, but your taste buds are begging for more. 

There is nothing like the smell of bacon in the morning, but what about the taste of maple bacon ice cream? Crumbled bacon bits, swirls of maple syrup, and a hint of brown sugar come together in this surprising but not unwanted dessert. 

A cheesy base is the key to a pizza ice cream. If you are a tomato-based pizza lover, don’t worry you’ll be missing out. Everything you want in a pizza is there… in an ice cream. We have all eaten a cold slice of pizza for breakfast, so is this flavor really that out there? 

A satisfying snack, often one for as you survey the backyard, is a fluffy, flaky buttermilk biscuit filled with locally made jam. Now imagine buttermilk ice cream loaded with crumbled biscuit bites and fruity jam swirls. That’s the perfect way to continue the tradition in hot afternoons.
