Faithfully Sweet: Ice Cream Innovator: Free Ice Cream Today in DC!

| April 20, 2012

Do you like ice cream? Do you like pie? Do you want FREE ice cream? If you live in DC, get on down to Georgetown and be one of first 100 people on Friday April 20 between 5pm to 7pm for free 2oz. scoop of PieScream ice cream. 

This is no ordinary ice cream…and some of the best ice cream I’ve had! I had the wonderful chance to talk to Faith, the owner, founder, and creator of Faithfully Sweet, about her ice cream.

Faith has always loved experimenting in the kitchen. Last year, she combined her passion for cooking, knack for innovative, and love for delighting people to create this unusual ice cream. One year later, she has 4 portable kiosks throughout the DC Convention Center, and people are going crazy over the ice cream. What makes her ice cream so unique and desirable? First, her organic super premium ice creams and sorbets are made with liquid nitrogen.

Liquid nitrogen?

Yup.

I’m no scientist, so I have no idea what this is. Sounds spaceship-y. Turns out liquid nitrogen freezes at 320 degrees BELOW zero and helps to make some of the freshest ice cream with the smallest ice crystals in any ice cream, which leaves is extremely creamy and rich (without that added fat). Moreover, the ice cream is made right in front you in less than 90 seconds. No joke, I watched this happening! I watched her pour the cream, and poof, my ice cream. It was mad cool and so worth watching.

For those who you trying to cut down on sugar, Faithfully Sweet also has a naturally sweetened super premium ice cream, sweetened with Pure Maple Syrup (PMS), Pure Honey and Pure Agave Nectar, all of which are 100% natural and organic. She began this line out her recognition “of the negative affects that processed and refined sugars have on so many people [and] studies have shown that sugar is often a leading cause in the development of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and premature aging.” Understanding her own body’s positive reaction to a sugar-free diet, her naturally-sweetened ice cream offers a healthier alternative still satisfying the sweet tooth.

Not bad, right?

With all the demand for her sweets, Faith needed to find a storefront to bring the ice cream to the people, and as luck would have it, she has opened up this week in Pie Sisters Georgetown! Pie Sisters is a a place of warmth and elegance, homemade pies of wondrous flavors by three sisters.

Homemade ice cream and homemade pie in one spot. Head over there for your free ice cream on April 20! (PieScream…pieces of Pie Sisters’ pie in liquid nitrogen ice cream….)

    Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work? I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
