Apparently blogger Click Clack Gorilla, who wrote the post I mentioned above, had just recently tried it and was a big fan.
Oh yeah! I did a search for "spaghetti ice cream" and recall where I heard of it. I saw a machine (online) for it a while ago from the aptly called Spaghetti Ice Cream Co, though apparently Click Clack Gorilla said you can use an "old noodle press."
Here is the Spaghetti Ice Cream Co's "spaghetti ice cream maker" as seen on the Food Network five years ago.
Looks fun and makes a nice display, but seems like an extra step to me...
I wonder if the ice cream eating experience is really that different? Has anyone tried it? I'd love to hear more...
It's only $12.95 on the site for a "unit [that] may be without the attractive retail gift box and/or unit may have some minor cosmetic flaws" (the $22.95 unflawed one is out of stock) -- maybe it's worth trying?
