When I was little we had 9 of us in a 800 sq. foot house next to my paternal grandparent's. That lasted for about a year. Aside from his in-ground pool in the back, we didn't have much in the way of discretionary income. What we did have was a maternal grandmother with a sweet tooth and an old electric ice cream churner. The best was when the strawberries would ripen in the garden. The only issue I had with it was that it would take forever for that ice cream to make. Ice Cream Magic claims to do something similar in 5 minutes. What we're wondering is whether or not it's worth the lack of wait. And the search begins.

What Is Ice Cream Magic?

Ice Cream Magic is one of those classic little powder & cream & ice concoctions that create an ice cream-like flavor - enough to be passable - in an ice-cream mold so the kids can enjoy the process from creation to consumption. To mix it up a little bit, they provide a recipe book to help keep it fun for kids. The product is pushed by Idea Village. Their other successes have included Pillow Pets.  

Benefits, Claims & Features

According to www.icecreammagic.com, Ice Cream Magic ice cream maker claims the following features and benefits:

  • ready in 3 minutes
  • make and flavor
  • fresh * chemical-free ingredients
  • low fat and sugar free ice cream  
  • rush delivery avialable

Does Ice Cream Magic Work? Reviews, News & Issues from Bloggers, Vloggers & Other Key Industry Sites...

Order Process:  The order process is straight-forward with one exception:  the Party Pack is the defaulted choice so if you want to just go for the simple one, make sure you switch the radio button. Other than that, we don't expect too many problems.  

Product Performance:  So far, the world is pretty quiet on the Ice Cream Magic. The watchdog sites have been quiet and the review sites have been even quieter. Lots of, "we love it fluff," but other than that, not much to hear Then again, complaint sites are riddled with complainers so if there's no complaints, we take it to be a good thing. We're hoping the reader send us the pics soon.

Update:  March 22nd, 2013

We took a second look and found a couple folks whining because they couldn't make ice cream in 3 minutes on the first try. Now, we're not doubting that it someone doesn't get it in 3 minutes on the first try, but that relays into our second thought:  practice makes perfect. At least try it a few times before whining. It just reminds me of the kids who quit playing basketball because they couldn't make baskets on the first day...

If you like ice cream and like find cool pardon the pun things for kids to do, then at least put in a little repetition. If after 10 tries you can't figure it out, let us know...Also, double-bonus score if you take videos of it and post it to YoTtube. Actually, either way...if you have fun with it, we want to know that as well! We'll put them on the review! Take a lesson from the review from NBC 11 out of Atlanta:  it's all about the kids...

Final Thoughts - What to Expect...Perhaps

It's nothing short of peculiar that they would be running a test offer on an ice cream maker in the dead of winter. Then again we don't know if their test is a national one at this time. They could be pushing it only in the Southern states. It's hard not to like the potential of Ice Cream Magic. With the parent company's line of success we hope to see another winner with this. We don't expected it to be the quality of the ice cream parlor we have back home, the   best ice cream in the world , but no one should expect that kind of magic in 3 minutes.

To us, this looks like it could be a lot of fun - and that's all it's supposed to be.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
