Giveaway!

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 am obsessed with licorice ice cream and coffee ice cream.
    If I had an ice cream maker I would probably try to combine them both, not because I think it would taste good. Just because I could ;)

    Hi there – I would love to make “Rice Pudding” ice cream, and some form of S’mores with home-made marshmallows. I put your line on my facebook, and we made “Phila Flyers” cookies all during the playoffs (photos of them on my facebook)…would love to have an ice cream maker where we could add these special Flyers cookies to the ice cream and call it “Broad Street Best” ice cream!!

    I always wondered if you could make vanilla ice cream and put fresh mint leaves in it? Of course you’d need chocolate chips with it to finish it off. Mint would take the sting out of this muggy weather!

    I make a mean peanut brittle. Perhaps combining some of that wonderful nutty caramel with some really nice vanilla bean ice cream?
