Ice Cream Jubilee is now selling small-batches of ice cream that can be delivered straight to your door in D.C., the Dcist reports. The company is offering “subscriptions” that deliver four half-pint cartons of their flavors once a month. For $25 a month, or $50 for two months, the company sends a bike messenger with a cooler full of pints. The delivery system will use dry-ice to keep the ice cream from spoiling in the hot D.C. heat.
The company sells inventive flavors, and the flavors scheduled for July include chocolate five spice, blueberry pie, gin and tonic sorbet, and Thai iced tea. The company uses cream from Maryland to make their sweet treats.
The founder of Ice Cream Jubilee is Victoria Lai, who by day is a lawyer for the Department of Homeland Security. She started the company a few years ago, casually serving tasting parties for friends, and the company has now moved into Union Kitchen, the food start-up area behind Union Station. The ice cream is sold at Glen’s Garden Market, a recently opened grocery store.
