On the first day of National Ice Cream Month, a news story in Arkansas illustrated the sad truth that it is actually possible to take love for ice cream too far. Hard to believe, I know, but wait until you read the story. When you’re finished, you may be inspired to get your own ice cream maker, or dig your old one out of the attic. It’s cheaper and more convenient than going out to the store, and safer too!
It all started when an unsuspecting driver suffered a rear-end collision by another car that was following too closely. Instead of stopping, the driver at fault continued on her way. Distressed but not willing to let the driver get away, the victim followed her all the way to her house and called the police. When officers arrived, they were surprised to hear some unusual—but seasonal—excuses from the hit-and-run driver.
First of all, the driver said that she thought her collision hadn’t caused enough damage to warrant stopping at the scene. But there was another reason not to stop: She had cold ice cream in the car and didn’t want it to melt.
Granted, stopping to exchange insurance information and give a statement to the police can be a time-consuming process, and on a hot summer day the ice cream was certainly in danger of becoming collateral damage of the car accident. But was it worth leaving the scene of an accident? The driver probably doesn’t think so any more, after receiving two citations for the incident.
Have you ever been in this kind of a predicament? Hopefully it didn’t involve a car accident, but we have all had to decide whether or not to make that one final stop on the way home from the grocery store and put our precious ice cream in danger. If you have an ice cream maker, though, you can keep your entire ice cream process in house. And once you’ve had fresh, homemade ice cream out of your own ice cream maker, you might be unwilling to go back to the grocery store brands!
Our website has all the information you need to conduct research and select the perfect ice cream maker for your family. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can branch out to fruit and candy varieties, or invent your very own original flavor. Someday, maybe your new flavor will be the one that people are rushing home from the store!
