How our Custom Creation package works...
1. Fill out the Custom Creation form.
2. We'll contact you to set up an appointment time in our test kitchen.
3. During the appointment, we will work together to develop your custom recipe in a "test batch" environment. The package includes all equipment and basic ingredients needed to make two test batches (1/2 gallon each) of your formulation. You may bring additional ingredients such as homemade cookies if you'd like. Each batch may have a different formulation.
4. Once the ice cream has hardened, you may come back to pick it up, and then place an order for a larger batch! Note: Full scale runs are made in our ice cream plant which due to health regulations is not open to the public.
