Where can I find a carton of bacon ice cream?

I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan; anybody know where to find bacon ice cream in either borough? I've never tried it, but a fleeting mention in a recent article triggered a craving. I expect to be enamored...or disgusted.

  1. Is there a particular country or region that it originates from? If you know, that may help.

      I believe it's just the product of bacon's recent (overdone) trendiness here in the States. But maybe not.

        Maybe it's only available in restaurants?

          No there is a company called ben and jerry's that sells cartons of bacon ice cream look up bacon ice cream on google images and you will see.

        2. I had bacon infused whiskey and thought maybe it would work. Actually - - it was gross. I have a feeling that may be true of the ice cream you describe. People fetish over bacon (and I can see why) but it is not as flexible a food as you think. That said, I have never seen Bacon ice-cream, but I bet if you google it you can find it. Locally? Probably a small batch parlor.

          1. You have about as much chance of finding bacon ice cream in a store as you do in a kosher deli. I'm afraid it's one of those things you have to try to make for yourself.

              When I was at the chocolate show there was a chocletier down on Essex street, I believe near or in the Essex Street Market. She made chocolate covered bacon, that might be a substitute for ya. Someone I work with said they tried it and loved it.

                  Yes, thank you! she made a really heavenly butter crunch too.

              1. Applewood in Brooklyn has served it in the past; I don't know if they still do.

                A good approximation based on David Lebovitz's recipe is to candy your own bacon using brown sugar and mix it into vanilla ice cream.
