Beer Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches

Have you ever been interviewed by a kid? It’s the best. They aren’t like grown-ups, they don’t care what your job is or where you went to college. They never ask you to detail the history of your current career trajectory, or how you plan to vote. They ask fun questions, like “what’s your favorite cursive letter?” or “If you could be any dinosaur what would you be?” and “would you rather be able to fly or be able to turn invisible?”

Bellingham Alive!

Pick up a pint of Acme Ice Cream in one hand. Now a pint of Dreyer’s in the other. Feel the difference? Acme Ice Cream prides itself on being a zero air ice cream producer, meaning their pints are full of denser, creamier and more fatty ice cream, says Acme sales manager Steve Grichel. While more mainstream brands like Dreyer’s, Haagen-Dazs and even Ben & Jerry’s add air to their ice cream to increase volume, allow for easier mixing of ingredients and change the texture of the ice cream, Acme chooses to eliminate the air. As a result of Acme’s high fat content and zero air percentage, the ice cream falls into the “super premium” industry category.
