I saw this ice cream making gadget recently on television – maybe Food Network, I don’t remember– and wondered if just shaking this and tossing it around would be enough agitation to actually make ice cream. And would it actually get cold enough to freeze? While I want it to work because of its sheer “cool factor,” I need to see it in action–literally.
Who knows? Maybe the exercise you get by shaking this for 20 minutes will burn off enough calories to make you feel less guilty about what you’re about to eat.
CNET’s CRAVE blog, which reports on gadgets, points out that you better make sure the lid is on tight, as there could be a real mess otherwise.

If you’ve never tried SheerBliss Ice Cream, it’s worth the indulgence. Inside the unique metal can packaging (which reportedly keeps the product colder than paper packaging), you’ll find a very rich, flavorful and all natural ice cream that’s certain to be a new favorite.
On a personal note, I’m also pleased to see the progress that SheerBliss Ice Cream has made in the marketplace.

SheerBliss is also doing good work as national sponsor of AMVETS, which supports programs offering assistance to U.S. veterans and their families. SheerBliss has dedicated a new red (pomegranate swirls), white (vanilla ice cream) and blue (blueberry swirls) flavor called “Freedom Ice Cream” to American veterans.
