Finding out about it now is fairly useless, given that summer has drawn to a close and you're presumably already fighting off a cold - but if you turn the heating right up at home, then maybe you can have a sesh on the ice cream. And, if you're American then this has come at the right time for you.
Arctic Buzz, based in Baltimore, are the brand behind the innovative desert offering flavours such as Key Lime Pie, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate, Raspberry, Vanilla and Coconut.
