The blazing heat of summer as well the frequent heat waves that racks the state has brought back the popularity of ice cream as a way to escape the heat. Not only that, it seems that sugar free and fat free ice creams are losing ground in favor of the old tasty, sweet and full ice creams we liked so much when we were kids. This is not really so surprising. With the increasing problems we are having with the economy and the increasing pressure to manage our finances, ice creams represents a cheap and effective way to chase away the blues. This is the reason why ice cream manufacturers and ice cream vendors are having a field day selling the old style ice cream with some relatively new additions like the smoothies that includes frozen custard, a variation of the old style ice cream with egg as an additional flavoring.
These relatively new ice creams production process reverts back to the old fashioned way of ice cream production which is hand mixed and home made. As always, ice creams are popular because not only are they delicious, there are also a lot of things different in the ice creams of today.
One remarkable thing in the ice cream business is the general mood of people when they come inside an ice cream parlor. As people look for ice cream when they are in the mood to treat themselves, people buying these desserts are often a happy bunch. Indeed a bonus to all the ice cream vendors out there. Today, instead of going on a vacation, eating an expensive meal in a restaurant or splurging their hard earned cash on shopping sprees, people are settling for ice creams as a way to regain some sense of equilibrium, celebrate a good day or forget about a stressful day.
As the popularity of ice cream grows, competition popping out of everywhere only seems to fuel the public’s desire to have more ice cream. Today, you can see a lot more ice cream brands than there were ten years ago. Two of these success stories are cold stone creamery and Ritter’s and Culver’s ice cream. The increasing demand for frozen custard and super premium ice creams has contributed much to the spectacular success of these two companies. Because of this, even the franchise industry in the ice cream business is experiencing a boom.
