Paper ice cream cups

During the winter months, it can be very cold in the United States. Depending on where you live, of course, the serious temperatures can be downright brutal. Some states never see cold temperatures, especially compared to other states where temperatures can routinely reach several degrees below zero during the blustery months of the winter.

Still, no matter what the temperature is outside, Americans will continue to enjoy what has been for centuries one of the most delicious and satisfying dessert treats: ice cream.

Recently, NPD Group did some research into a number of things including how, when, and why Americans eat ice cream. It turns out that during any two-week period throughout the year, four out of every ten Americans will eat ice cream. Even in the dead of winter, it is very d more »

Tasting spoon

In the United States, the most popular dessert by far is none other than the beloved treat of ice cream. In other countries, there are popular alternatives like Gelato but it does not compare to ice cream. This is why ice cream continues to dominate the world of desserts and will continue to do so as we move forward.

There are plenty of ways to serve ice cream that include using colored spoons, dessert cups, and even plastic spoons. Gelato will usually contain just about 5% of milk fat and up to 30% of air which is not the same process of creation for people who make ic more »

Here’s What Happens When You BBQ With the Best Grill Grates Home Depot Has to Buy

Coffee : January 15, 2018 8:45 am : Ace hardware smokers, Grill and smoker, Home depot barbecue grills

Franklin grill

Whether it’s charring, grilling, or smoking, cooking over a fire is a practice that dates back hundreds of thousands of years ago. Fast forward to today, and cooking over an open flame still continues to satiate this primal need. In addition to environmental factors, the biggest difference is better equipment.

Portable barbecue grills, cast aluminum gas grills, and other kinds of snazzy personal grills were simply not a thing when man first began cooking food over an open fire. Nevertheless, these things are a reality now and the kind of equipment you use has a direct and major impact on how well the food is — or isn’t — c more »

The Top Essentials for an Awesome Coffee Shop

Coffee : January 14, 2018 4:30 pm : Coffee stirrers, Sugar, Wooden stir sticks


It could be argued that the United States runs on coffee. The United States is the world’s largest buyer of coffee, importing over 27 million bags in 2014. That was about a quarter of global coffee imports. Additionally, the United States retail value of the coffee market is just under $50 billion — specialty coffee accounts for 55% of the value share. So it’s no wonder that coffee shops continue to pop up — there’s always a market for them, especially as new innovations in coffee continue to crop up. Cold brew, draft coffees, and latte art are just some of the recent new coffee crazes that have emerged in the last year. And of course, a good old cup of drip coffee, a latte, or an espresso will always be popular stalwarts.

The first fancy dessert took place in 1529. King Louis XII had planned a great feast for his daughter, Princess Renee. At the time, people throughout Italy were fascinated by all things with sugar. They would have ornate sculptures of the stuff made for their banquets. When the party was scheduled for the town of more »
