Since I started Tipping Cow, I knew that I wanted to stay away from the traditional standbys of ice cream, and make exclusively unique and offbeat flavors. My mantra when coming up with flavors was always "anything but vanilla."
The fact remains, however, that people like vanilla. It is absolutely delicious and is a popular flavor for a reason! How was I to make a version of this flavor that everybody loves and yet remain true to my vision for Tipping Cow? So my challenge has been to make vanilla ice cream less "vanilla."
Our vanilla buttermilk ice cream is the perfect middle ground! It has the versatility of traditional vanilla, but the buttermilk gives it its own distinct flavor that you cant get anywhere else.
My Take Away: For your product to be special, you really don't have to reinvent the wheel; instead just focus on making the ordinary extraordinary. Take something that is already great and make it your own!
Starting a food business has been exciting, rewarding, stressful, terrifying, and without a doubt the most fun I have ever had. I write here to share with you my struggles and successes in this journey.
