Struggling with choice overload? Sensations are great pre-made choices crafted for you! But what are they really like? Here’s a little mental taste to help you choose.

Our feature this week is Strawberry Sigma: Strawberry and Vanilla Ice Cream, Marshmallow Cream, Strawberries, and Whipped Cream.

Oh baby, strawberries and cream. This is such a classic, strawberries and cream was probably one of the first ice cream flavors to be invented. If you want something familiar and fruity, light and summery, this is perfect. The smooth strawberry is only enhanced by the sweet creaminess of the marshmallow. Whipped cream makes the perfect topping while the strawberries give it real strawberry flavor and texture.

This is a perfect choice for someone who loves ice cream but is trying Sub Zero for the first time. It’s a familiar flavor, so there’s nothing to distract from the difference—that smooth texture, how much more creamy and dense it is melting in your mouth. The strawberries are perfect for highlighting the differences too. Usually fruit gets too frozen because regular ice cream sits in a freezer. The high water content of fruit makes it melt slower and biting solidly frozen fruit can hurt, either teeth or by brain freeze. Sub Zero ice cream is flash frozen with liquid nitrogen, which doesn’t have time to penetrate fruit to the center. This means the outside gets a nice crispy, frozen texture and flavor, while keeping the center cold but soft. It’s the perfect way to enjoy fruit in ice cream, and that makes strawberries the perfect mix-in for this sensation.

Bottom line: Strawberries and Cream, fruity and light, perfect for highlighting all of the features of Sub Zero Ice Cream to a first-timer with a familiar classic for comparison.
