"bacon ice cream" news and stories
Ice cream is the great equalizer. Every person from every walk of life loves ice cream. (Except for lactose intolerant people, but they're obviously being punished by God.)
While it's perfectly acceptable to march into Baskin-Robbins and demand a triple cone of Jamoca Almond Fudge (you weirdos), or dive head-first into the Haagen-Dazs freezer for a pint of Sticky Toffee Pudding (you English people), wouldn't it feel exponentially more gratifying to make your own?
With a little bit of patience (or an ice cream maker), you can stop begrudging that Sesame, Soybean and Dried Kelp Ice Cream that you couldn't afford to have dry-frozen and shipped from Japan - and just make your own!
Here, eight ice cream recipes worth a whip:

The Udder Delight Ice Cream House in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware makes some of the best ice cream you'll find anywhere. In fact, their Peanut Butter and Jelly ice cream won the World Series of Ice Cream in 2004. To be sure, all of their flavors are very high quality - which is Udder Delight-speak for very high in butterfat - because they use dairy with extra-butterfat for all of their ice cream bases, and the best ingredients they can find as flavorings.
As you might guess from the Peanut Butter and Jelly ice cream, they offer some unusual ice cream flavors. They have Cappuccino Stout Beer, Cake Batter, Honey Fig and Pear Green Tea, and while they don't have a super spicy flavor , they do have Memphis Barbecue and Bacon. That's right, bacon. The bacon ice cream has small chunks of actual bacon in it, which puts some people off it entirely, but fans have likened the texture to pecans.
Bacon ice cream probably won't catch on any more than bacon cereal will, but if nothing else, it is worth a taste when you stop by to sample their other excellent flavors.
