Kelly Sweitzer, owner of The Pepper Mill Shop, loves a good food pun. Since 2015, she’s been traveling up and down the coast selling her goods to the general public at art festivals and markets, as well as to shops locally and across the country. Inspired by music, cooking, and solid dad joke, her designs serve one purpose: to spread laughter.
In addition to her endeavors as an illustrator, she has worked as a scenic artist for film and television on and off for the past 15 years.
Sooo… How exactly does this work?
Hey, we’re glad you asked! Shipping ice cream is a little more complicated than shipping an ice cream hat, but no worries. We’ve got this!
First, we only ship our ice cream out on Tuesdays. So when you place your order make a mental note that your pints will be leaving our shop the following Tuesday. We pack your pints into a reusable foam cooler and pack in enough dry ice to keep everything fully frozen for the journey. Once you (or a friend, family member, coworker, perfect stranger) receive the ice cream you’ll want to get it into your freezer to warm up. Nope, not a typo. The dry ice will freezer your ice cream to such a low temperature that your freezer will actually help things get back up to a scoopable temperature. And as for the dry ice? Don’t touch it with your bare hands! Dry ice is so incredibly cold that it can burn you. Just leave the bag of dry ice in a safe location (free from pets or small hands) and the dry ice will sublimate (turn directly into a gas.) See, we told you there was nothing to it.
