3 NEW THIS MORNING... IT'S SUMMERTIME...THE WEATHER'S WARM...WHICH MEANS IT'S ICE CREAM SEASON. SO... ARE YOU READY TO MOVE BEYOND THE USUAL FLAVORS? SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? WELL, A NEW ICE CREAM COMPANY IN HARRISBURG IS WHIPPING UP SOME UNIQUE OPTIONS ... FROM BEER... TO BACON. 3 --NATS-- IT MAY REMIND YOU OF THE HOMEMADE ICE CREAM YOUR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS USED TO MAKE.--NATS--- BUT THE FLAVORS INSIDE THESE CHURNS PROBABLY WEREN'T SERVED AT THE FAMILY GET-TOGETHERs.22:37:30 "I try to make unique stuff." ADAM BRACKBILL IS THE OWNER AND OPERATOR OF URBAN CHURN IN HARRISBURG. IT'S A MICRO CREAMERY... SMALL BATCHES OF UNUSUAL ICE CREAM.22;37:35 "Just crazy flavors that people don't usually have access to in your typical grocery store." BRACKBILL WORKS IN WEBSITE DESIGN... BUT MAKING ICE CREAM IS IN HIS BLOOD.22:30:36 "My family, they've made ice cream for all the family functions for generations.." BRACKBILL SAYS HE FELT LIKE THERE SHOULD BE MORE ICE CREAM OPTIONS IN THE CAPTIAL CITY... SO HE STARTED MAKING THE FROZEN DAIRY TREAT IN A COUPLE OF SMALL CHURNS .. PRODUCING JUST SIX QUARTS AT A TIME. 22:31:50 "It's something different, different pace, I can get out of sitting at my computer all day, everyday." AND HE DECIDED TO MAKE THE FLAVORS A LITTLE DIFFERENT TOO. 22:35:12 "With the small batches, I can customize ice cream for people based on whatever they're looking for." NOT THAT EVERYTHING WORKS OF COURSE... BUT IT'S ALL ABOUT EXPANDING YOUR ICE CREAM PALATE... SO I DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY.22:43:14 "This is whiskey, with bacon grease. I little bit of bacon grease, not too much." THAT'S RIGHT...WHISKEY ICE CREAM... AND IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH... IT'S TOPPED WITH CHOCOLATE- COVERED BACON. AND YOU KNOW WHAT ... IT'S PRETTY GOOD. 22:59:10 "Oh.. It's excellent." WE ALSO TRIED CHOCOLATE GUINESS ICE CREAM... AS IN GUINESS STOUT BEER. YUP... THIS ISN'T YOUR GRANDFATHER'S ICE CREAM. 22:40:05 "As long as people enjoy this, it's all I care about.I think that's the motivation behind it, really." 3 WE SHOULD NOTE...THE ICE CREAM IS NON-ALCOHOLIC... ALL THE ALCOHOL DISAPPEARS DURING THE PRODUCTION. ADAM PLANS TO START SELLING ICE CREAM SOMETIME NEXT MONTH...
