Everyone Screams for...
By Capt. Patrick Sciacca — May 2003
...ice cream, of course. It's a summer staple, like hot dogs and baseball games. So why shouldn't you have this tasty treat onboard for your Fourth of July fireworks cruise? Black & Decker has put a twist--literally--on this crave-inducing delight that will even let you make a red, white, and blue sundae if you'd like.
The Arctic Twister Ice Cream Maker runs about $75 and is fairly simple to operate. First pick your favorite flavor, which according to the International Ice Cream Association is vanilla (chocolate came in second) and place it in the top of the machine. Next, add candy, nuts, or whatever topping you prefer. The final step takes a little elbow grease: With your magical mix ready to go, place the lid on top of the machine and start pumping the handle. Now, place your cup or cone underneath, and in seconds you have sweet relief from the summer heat.
If you can't wait to stop in at your local mass retailer or specialty store, the Arctic Mixer Ice Cream Maker can be purchased through Black & Decker's Web site or by phone.
