Gender Reveal Ideas – It’s A Boy! For SURE!

Every once in awhile we get a request for custom ice cream that makes even our cheeks blush.   A customer called and asked if we could have some custom labels ready for pick-up one evening.  We said,  ”No problem! What would you like the labels to say?”  She explained that she would be using eCreamery custom Ice Cream as part of her Gender Reveal Party that evening and proceeded to list a couple adorable, “It’s A Boy” names.

The names were:

Snips & snails & puppy dog tails, that’s what little boys are made of.

Bouncing Baby Boy Smith

Daddy Mike’s Sidekick!

*real first and last name was changed. 

She then asked if we had ever put ultrasound pictures on our ice cream labels.  We had not but we wanted to give it a try.  I have always heard that they distinguish the gender by examining internal body parts so I wondered what exactly she was going to email me.

For her 4th pint label we added an ultrasound picture.

Meet Dr. Allen Chen: eC Flavor of the Month Member

Dr. Chen, Creator of "The Double Double"

1. When did you become an Ice Cream Lover?Really, when haven’t I been an Ice Cream Lover? I’d have to say, it was love at first bite.

2. Favorite All Time Flavor?Now this is a tough question to answer, since so many great flavors come to mind. In terms of things you can get at any grocery store, coffee Oreo, coffee Heath bar crunch, mint chocolate chip, and mocha almond fudge are always welcome. When I was a graduate student at Duke, I dated a woman who owned a gourmet ice cream store, and her Rossini’s Dark Chocolate #2, fresh off the dasher, was pretty amazing: extremely rich, smooth, and complex. I like spicy flavors, and have had some excellent cinnamon and even better fresh ginger ice cream. I think my all time favorite was a fresh mango ice cream that had absolutely explosive flavor.

3. Favorite eCreamery flavor?You guys made me a custom flavor that I called double – double because it combined coffee and mocha as base flavors, with premium chocolate brownies plus chocolate chunks mixed in. That turned out well. Really well.

4. What is your favorite “Ice Cream related memory or tradition”?I have fond memories of sitting on top of a wooden ice cream machine filled with a rock salt/ice slurry, turning the crank, working up an appetite for the fresh, soft ice cream. Also, I must say that a deciding factor in my choice to go to Dartmouth College was that an alumnus had bequeathed them a fund that provided unlimited soft ice cream at all meals in the dining halls. That decision turned out well – it’s a great place to go for an undergrad education.

5. What has been the best part of being a 6 month Flavor of the Month Member?Creating premium ice cream flavors is fun!

6. Any other Food Loves besides ice cream? Since I live in Baltimore, I have to plug the crab cakes! And shrimp salad, Peking duck, snow pea tips, fresh Copper River red salmon, roast lamb…

Let’s Give Thanks For Ice Cream!

There are many, many things to give thanks for this year. We all have very special people and events that we are the most thankful for but we wanted to break it down to some of the simple things in life that make it oh so much sweeter.

eCreamery Gourmet Ice Cream Gifts - Thanksgiving Ice Cream Flavors

Give Thanks for Thanksgiving Ice Cream Flavors!

This year we put four flavors together that you can enjoy on their own or that would be perfect to accommodate the other desserts in your life that make you so thankful.

Cinnamon Ice Cream: Made with fragrant, sweet, organic Korintje cinnamon from Sumatra. Skip the whipped cream and top your Pumpkin Pie with a scoop of Cinnamon!

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream: Made with Madagascar Vanilla Beans. They are what make a Vanilla Ice Cream life less vanilla. Another classic Pumpkin Pie topper.

Classic Pumpkin Ice Cream: This is pretty much a creamier, colder version of Pumpkin Pie. Pumpkin, ginger, cloves, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, we roll out the spice cabinet. Combined to make a delicious Classic Pumpkin Ice Cream flavor. Top your Pecan Pie with Classic Pumpkin Ice Cream?

Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream: Yum! We make an Oatmeal, Butter & Brown Sugar crust. We cook down Granny Smith Apples with all the yummy spices you’d suspect. See Classic Pumpkin. I mean, we rolled out the spice cabinet, let’s spice them up. We blend the apples into the base and then fold in layers of Rich Caramel Sauce and the yummy Oatmeal, Butter, Brown Sugar Crust. Each bite delicious. We suggest you enjoy this one after all of your guests have left. Perhaps you, the pint and a spoon in bed. Sleep Tight!

Give thanks for the things that make your everyday life a little bit sweeter.
