The Ice Cream Show (Viceland) – Premieres 24th April
The ice cream answer to The Pizza Show, this has ice cream parlour owner and host Isaac Lappert heading off to visit various producers to see how they make their product.
After a brief introduction on Isaacs history in the industry, he sets out to visit small independent manufacturers through to the large scale operations. There he finds out how the businesses were started, sees how they make and develop their ice cream, and ending up with him tasting the stuff for himself.
With Isaac trying to get his dad and parlour co-owner interested in expanding their business, he talks to the various owners about how they expanded, why they did, and what problems they ran into.
Even for a 20 minute show, this does seem to run out of steam half way through the episode. And with the premise being so narrow, it feels like once you seen one episode that there’s not much else to see.
