This workshop was conducted by their flavour guru, Peter Lind form Vermont, and we learnt how the latest flavor - Couch Potato - was made on the spot!  Couch Potato is their newest ice cream flavor that contains potato chips..

This was one of their attempts in making the flavor - chocolate coated BBQ flavoured chips, but it turned out a little weird hehe.

The potato chips were made into crunchy balls to be added into the ice cream..

Vanilla ice cream and salted caramel was then piped into the pint in order to create swirls..
