So you pour whatever liquid in to the container, pour in the powder and then whisk away. Once it's near the appropriate mark, we can get crazy with the mix-ins. Now what flavor do I want to make? Part of me thinks I should just do straight vanilla but the other part of me wants to go cookies and cream.
Ofcourse, the marketing materials talk about being "bravely curious". You know I can get crazy, but I don't want to be foolish crazy on my first attempt. Wait, I just remembered they sent over their "campfire creation" recipe, so let's do that! Milk, mix, graham cracker crumbs, chopped up mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips. Let's do this!
I started off with only using one of the whisks in fear of damaging the container, but when progress seemed slow, I added in the second whisk and they fit fine. All in all, I whisked for ten minutes. I was going to say that it didn't whip up as much as expected, but I did actually make it up to the line, at least with all the mix-ins added in.
Now for the hard part: waiting! Did I mention I tried the results before throwing it in the freezer? All the whipping has made it quite warm, but basically it tastes like whipped cream. Yes, I realize that sounds stupid.
On Second Scoop: I wasn't going to post this review until I broke in to the second mix bag but I had a thought. Am I really reviewing the ice cream (which is going to vary wildly based on who makes it), or am I really just reviewing the fun factor? Well, I don't need to make another container of ice cream to know I had fun. Sure, I made a mess because I'm me, but I have a cabinet full of potential possibilities. Cereal ice creams, cookie ice creams, heck, I could even go with a pretzel or chip ice cream. I love the possibilities here. If you are interested in trying it yourself, their retailer list is here. [I'll be trying to cake mix in the coming weeks]
Buy Again? yup!
