We're not sure what the benefit of making ice cream with liquid nitrogen is, although Smitten's website will tell you all about it if you're curious. We couldn't tell any difference between Smitten's extra-cold ice cream and regular ice cream, but they did have some great flavors and it was delicious (all ice cream is delicious).
Just your typical neighborhood ice cream parlor, with its 50,000 gallon nitrogen tank.
Seems like a lot of work for something you could just scoop out of a freezer.
Who knew making ice cream was so complicated?
Brrrrrr! So cold!
The finished product! We tried brown sugar with cinnamon cookies (left) and lemon with ginger snaps (right). Both were great, but the brown sugar was the winner.
