You know when you visit somewhere in town and think "why haven't I been here sooner?" That's exactly how I felt this morning at eCreamery in Omaha. I was invited out with other fellow Omaha Bloggers to get a sneak peek at the new eCreamery Website that will be launching on May 13th, as well as to learn to more about the deliciousness that is eCreamery.
Sitting on the corner of 50th & Underwood Ave in the Dundee area, eCreamery is an inviting ice cream parlor style joint that will have you coming back for more after one bite. It was hard for me to stop asking for tester spoons of all the flavors to be honest. Creamery, flavor explosions in each bite kept tempting me back to the counter. If you haven't been to eCreamery, here are 10 Reasons to Love eCreamery, and yes, after one visit, and lots of eating, I feel my taste buds are educated enough to make you fall in love with eCreamery too.
10 Reasons to Love eCreamery
1) Ice Cream, Gelato, and Sorbet
eCreamery offers Ice Cream, Gelato, and Sorbet! If you wondering what the heck the difference is, here is little break down.....
Sorbet is non-dairy, fat free, and, gluten-free. eCreamery uses an Italian Style recipe making it much less icy than traditional American sherbet.
Gelato has more butterfat than sorbet but less ice than ice cream.
Ice Cream has a higher butterfat content than sorbet and gelato, as well as more air in the mixture.
2) Create Your Own Flavor
At ecreamery.com you can create your OWN custom flavor in six easy steps. Choose from over 40 flavors, 50 mix-ins, choose your packaging, and even title your special flavors! There are 5 different package options to choose from when ordering your own flavor and they range from 3.5oz party cups up to a "Big Time" Party Pack that will soon be available!
3) Personalized Pints
You can personalize the labels on your pints both online and by calling ahead. This is a fun way to give a personalized gift, have at a wedding, party, or business event, or just to create because it's awesome! Seriously, where else can you create a custom flavor and personalized label on your own ice cream creation? No. Where.
