You’ll Scream for Ice Cream. Literally!
Now this is an ice cream for Texas if there ever was one. Bonfatto’s Spice Cream Ice Cream started life as – wait for it – hot sauce for wings.
They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and the need to cool down led up to Bonfatto's Spice Cream: The Lettermans helped themselves to cups of vanilla ice cream, and on a whim, drizzled their Bonfatto’s fruit-based wing sauces over it. With flavors like Sweet Peachy Heat Wave, Rolling Berry Blastoff, and Jumping Jack Apple Splash, you just knew it was going to be good.
Here's the story: While at a food show displaying those award-winning wing sauces, third-generation Bonfatto family-member David Letterman (no, not that David Letterman) and his wife faced 100-degree heat with no end in sight. (That sounds familiar, right?)
And it was! The following Eureka! moment was a cool treat with just enough heat to make that vanilla ice cream less vanilla. The spontaneous hot-weather snack became a bonafide Bonfatto’s favorite: premium French vanilla ice cream packed with dessert goodies like peanut butter cups, peaches, and pecans, then spiked with grown-up goodies like Jack Daniel’s and spicy habanero sauce.
