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!
