Bliss Dough Super Premium Ice Cream
by Jess Hewitt
Okay, first things first...
What the heck is Super Premium Ice Cream?
Did you know there are four categories of Ice Cream quality? They are Economy, Regular or Standard, Premium, and Super Premium. What determines an Ice Cream's category are the overrun and milk fat percentage.
The first Quality Indicator of ice cream is the overrun, which, in the simplest terms, is how much air is in your ice cream. The lower the overrun, the lower the air content, and the better the quality of ice cream. Economy Ice Cream has an overrun close to the maximum of 100% (meaning half of the ice cream is air) while Super Premium Ice Cream has an overrun of less than 50%. Anything above 100% overrun is no longer considered Ice Cream and must be labelled as "Frozen Dessert".
The second Quality Indicator is the percentage of Milk Fat. Economy Ice Cream has a Milk Fat percentage around the minimum requirement of 10%. Super Premium on the other hand has a Milk Fat content in the 14-18% range; anything much higher than that and the Ice Cream starts to take on a greasy texture.
So where does Bliss Dough Ice Cream Score?
With an overrun of approximately 30% and a Milk Fat content of about 17%, this places us in the Super Premium category. Our Ice Cream is denser and therefore creamier and more flavourful than most!
Okay, now tell me the Flavours!
We are going to launch with 3 flavours of Cookie Dough Ice Cream. All will have 1/3 of a jar of Cookie Dough and 2/3 of a jar of Ice Cream. All flavours will use Vanilla Ice Cream, with Chocolate options to follow in the near future. Here are our first 3 flavour combinations:
-Vanilla Ice Cream with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
-Vanilla Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Dough
-Vanilla Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate Cookie Dough
We can't wait for you to try our new Bliss Dough Ice Cream! This product will only be available for pickup at our Bliss Dough Headquarters at 3 Watson Road South Unit 6 in Guelph, ON and for delivery through SkiptheDishes, UberEats, and DoorDash in Guelph. As our Ice Cream contains Dairy, it will not be Vegan. This decision was made based on data accumulated through a survey sent to those on our mailing list. We hope to explore Vegan Ice Cream options in the future and we will continue to make Vegan Cookie Dough!
Keep an eye on our Instagram or Facebook page for more details regarding the launch date!
