Our first Durham-themed flavor!

As I’m sure most of you have noticed, it takes us a really long time to get around to making the flavors that most people consider “classics’. Take, for example, cookies and cream ice cream. It took us until this past summer to make our first batch (when we accidentally overbaked some cookies), and we’ve […]
