Now that the heat has really ramped up, I’m pleased to say I have finally followed up on my pledge to find out about how to order the Maple.Bacon.Waffle frozen custard that won the 2010 Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank Off’s “You Made What?” category.
The company who makes it is called Creamy Bastard and you order by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. They make your order up fresh and then deliver it to your door. I wrote and got the menu a month or so ago but didn’t get around to ordering until just recently when, after mentioning the custard to my co-workers, we agreed to all chip in and order several different flavors for a “taste-off”. I posted the results of that tasting to another blog, Living in the HD. (Click here to see that post).
The experience was so good that I ordered three more pints for home delivery today and they just arrived. Maple.Bacon.Waffle, Valherona Chocolate & Coconut Sherbet and Ginger & Watermelon Sorbet are sitting safe and sound in my freezer and I am just so impressed I have to let people know that this stuff exists.
I can’t wait until their fall menu comes out (they’ve got a pumpkin spice custard that sounds yummy). I urge you to check out their menu of currently available flavors and indulge yourself a little:
Fleur D’Orange & Pistachio Custard
Valherona Chocolate & Coconut Sherbet
Double Valherona Chocolate with Chocolate-Covered Espresso Bean Custard
Cherry & Port Custard
Citrus & Creme Sherbet
Spiced Wine & Fig Custard (seasonal – Summer)
Cantaloupe Sorbet (seasonal – Summer)
Ginger & Watermelon with Wild Flower Honey Sorbet (seasonal – Summer)

Until next time,
