"You don't know what you're missing," President Barack Obama told the journalists who'd just turned down his offer to order some ice cream on his family's tab. Meanwhile, the staff at Bruster's Real Ice Cream passed the president's order through the stand's windows—mint-chip ice cream for Obama, a hot-fudge sundae for the First Lady, and a cup of cake-batter-oreo ice cream for Sasha, according to Obama Foodorama.
The customers aren't always presidential, but Bruster's crew whips up all desserts in-store for the average citizen, too—including cakes, waffle cones, and the ice cream itself. Ice-cream choices rotate between more than 150 flavors, including red velvet cake batter and mocha almond fudge made with caffeinated ice cream. Flavors made with oreos and thin mints keep inner cookie monsters from jumping out of their people-suits. The staff also forges the ice cream into other forms, such as ice-cream cakes and pies, sundaes, and Blasts blended with candy mix-ins.
