I am jealous.

I have wanted an ice cream maker for months. I have wanted to make flavors that would disgust anyone within 100 yards of me, like olive oil and gorgonzola ice cream.

But I love you guys so much that I wanted to give one to you instead of buying it for myself.


If it wasn’t for you, I would be sitting at home on my couch all day eating bonbons and flipping through Us Weekly with a green mask on my face. If it wasn’t for you, I’d also probably be in a smaller jeans size too, but what’s the fun in that?


You can win this Cuisinart Mix-It-In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker.

Fully automatic ice cream maker—makes up to 1½ quarts of soft ice cream, yogurt, sorbet or sherbet in as little as 20 minutes. Mixes treats right into ice cream as it’s dispensed—choose one, two or all three. No chemicals, salt or ice required.


Even if you already have an ice cream maker, wouldn’t this make a fun gift for someone? Like me?


To Enter:

1.) Leave a comment telling me which ice cream flavor you’d love to make.

Are you plain vanilla? Peanut butter chocolate? I think it’s no secret that mine would include some form of bacon and chocolate. Perhaps like this?


For 2 extra entires:

2.) Follow How Sweet It Is on Twitter and tweet about this giveaway . Leave a comment letting me know you did so.

3.) Like How Sweet It Is on Facebook and post a link on Facebook to this giveaway. Leave a comment letting me know you did so.


Contest runs until tomorrow night, Sunday, June 13th at 8pm EST. :)

    i would LOVE to make peppermint ice cream. I LOVE peppermint ice cream. I remember my dad making it from the snow growing up and it was so yummy. He would use Leo peppermint sticks and i would try to find them to make the peppermint ice cream just like his, w/out the snow of course.

    Ohhhhh, this would be an awesome thing to win! My husband recently deployed to Afghanistan and everytime I asked for an ice cream maker he said we didn’t need one. I figured since he is gone I could now buy one. lol! But it would be so much better to win one, one less disagreement to have with him. =)

    The kids would be fighting on who got to decide the first flavor so I choose since I am the mom, and I would make lemon with either raspberry mix in’s or a raspberry glaze for the top… YUM!

    I am off the Fb and tweet about it too!

    Garlic! I come from a family of garlic lovahs and can’t ever make it to the big CA garlic festival to actually try some of this.

    I’d then try to make a T-Flo flavor (cherry) for my new hubby with his favorite mix-ins: gummy bears, butterfingers, cherry sours, and Sweedish fish. I would call it “A Diabetic’s Nightmare”

    As a newlywed, this would be a great, “welcome to marriage present!” :))

    Drena Paulson — June 13, 2010 @ 12:16 pm

    My flavor.. Vanilla base with caramel candy swirl and chunks of honeycomb candy. Has that burnt sugar creme brûlée idea. Then when eating some a small sprinkle of fleur de sel (French sea salt) for that salted caramel package. Yep. Tasty.

    I am dying to make London Fog icecream. Earl Grey tea and a tiny hint of vanilla. I had it once in this beautiful little cafe and have been in love ever since. If you even remotely have a thing for bergamont, you need to try it. It’s the most beautiful, light, and decadent thing I’ve ever had, dessert wise.
