A cup of Choco Chip Cookie Dough. The sweet cream ice cream has pieces of cookie dough and a cookie dough swirl. It’s topped with a chocolate chip cookie and a fudge drizzle (all photos © Churn Baby | Casper’s Ice Cream).
 A cup of heaven: chocolate ice cream with a peanut butter ribbon and brownie bites, topped with a double fudge cookie and peanut butter drizzle.
 What’s under the lid? Seven ounces of chocolate and peanut butter.
 Mint Chocolate Chip Churn Baby. A package contains two seven-ounce cups.
Ice cream is our favorite food, so we never turn down an invitation to try a new brand, flavor or format.
Our recent discovery of Churn Baby ice cream cups was, what the company calls, “a delicious churn of events.”
What the company calls “boutique-style cookie cups,” we call “gourmet.” We’d also call it a sundae-in-a-cup, topped with the ice cream swirled with a ribbon swirl (e.g. chocolate or peanut butter).
The crowning ingredient is a cookie and dessert sauce atop the ice cream, replacing the whipped cream and a cherry of a sundae (photo #2).
We couldn’t resist, and gobbled up a week’s daily supply in two days. And went to the website to order more.
The brand, made in Richmond, Utah, is currently distributed in the western U.S., but is available to everyone online. (Retailers in the East: Order it now!)
They’re sold in packages of two cookie cups, each seven ounces of pure delight.
We ate all of ours at home, but there’s a plastic spoon inside the lid for grab-and-go.

Similarly, the chocolate flakes and drizzles were so good that we knew they were from a top-knotch producer. It turned out to be Guittard Chocolate.
Churn Baby is a class act, an ice cream treat for those who want the best.

Ice cream cup trivia: The first ice cream cups were introduced in 1923, following the development of the patented Dixie Cup with a lid.
The manufacturer permitted only producers of the highest quality ice cream to license their cups and use the Dixie Cup brand name. Here’s more about it.
> The History Of Ice Cream
CASPER ICE CREAM COMPANY
The Casper Ice Cream Company of Richmond, Utah, producer of Churn Baby, began in 1925. The first product was Casper Merrill’s Ice Cream Nut Sundae on a Stick, known today as a FatBoy Nut Sundae.
Casper used milk and cream from the family’s herd, and the ice cream debuted to acclaim and demand.
Three generations later, his grandsons manage the company.
Today, Casper’s brands include Churn Baby, FatBoy and Jolly Llama (sorbet cones and gluten-free ice cream cones and sandwiches) [source].
