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. :)

    Wow Jessica! Thanks for the giveaway offer!
    I’ve been drooling over this soft serve maker at Sur La Table since last summer. If I owned it, I would make some sort of frozen yogurt. It’s tart and tangy to cool you off in the summer heat!

    David Lebovitz makes the most interesting ice cream flavors… they always sound great. (an olive oil & gorgonzola flavor sounds good to me too…)

    If I received an ice cream maker, I think my first flavor to try would be black licorice. Then I would make a tiramisu ice cream for Jason. :)

    …but mine first. :)

    Cake batter ice cream. Hands down.

    I’d put multi colored sprinkles in the end as “cherry on top.”

    This is so generous of you!
