Haven’t seen enough Star Wars branding yet? As the emperor once said – ‘Good.’ Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn is offering you a chance to sample Star Wars ice cream – both the light side and the dark side while you watch the first six movies.
Apologies to those who force themselves to endure the prequels. Good lord…
What if you don’t live near Brooklyn? Wonders of the Internet. You can order a pack of four to your house. The company packs it in dry ice, ensuring it arrives at your house intact. Yes, you’ll still want to grab it out and into the freezer asap.
Pricing? $36 for the four-pack. Shipping? That adds $40 for a FedEx 2-day shipping (I used my address in Alabama). I’ve had food shipped overnight, and that’s pretty close to the typical price. Damn, I wish my Amazon Prime worked everywhere.
The Light Side Ice Cream
Want to join Luke and watch over the galaxy? The force won’t be strong, but the flavor will be. Per the company, the light side is a ‘bright marshmallow ice cream with homemade crispie clusters, as well as a smattering of handmade cocoa crispies (to represent the dark side still lurking within the light).’
Well, that sounds damn delicious.
The Dark Side
Tired of the rebel (or resistance) scum? Join Kylo Ren’s Vader fan club and indulge in your darker fantasies. It is ‘an ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate pearls (to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through).’
The shipping makes the four-pack expensive, but it’s Star Wars. The cartons have custom artwork the superfan will want to keep, and the ice cream is a limited edition product.
Though the empire has always had my favorite characters, I’m siding with Luke and company. Marshmallow ice cream? Hell yes. And I’m not the biggest dark chocolate fan. Give me milk chocolate every time.
Sound off below. What do you think of Star Wars ice cream in handmade batches?
