I told my wife I was making a Pistachio flavor, and she was so happy. It’s her favorite flavor of ice cream or Gelato. Two employees have worked since I made it yesterday. Both texted me exclaiming how good it is. It’s a good sign. One thing I always find weird about Pistachio ice cream Read more about Nomad’s New Pistachio Flavor[…]
I don’t think I’ve ever shared a picture of a “prototype” pop before I had them ready to sell**, but I’m really really excited about this one I tested tonight.
