WFMZ, (The Morning Call – McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) – The Da Vinci Science Center will serve up exotic flavors of ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, on Saturday during the third annual competition center Ice Cream Wars.
Ice Cream Wars 3.0 pits the teams of Domino’s Pizza, The Morning Call, WFMZ 69 News and The Da Vinci Science Center to create delicious ice cream.
The teams will taste, and then mix them with liquid nitrogen at least 320 degrees Fahrenheit. As the nitrogen warms up quickly, creating dense clouds, the gas freezes supercold liquid cream and sugar in ice cream in minutes.
The four teams will also incorporate a mystery ingredient that will be announced early in the competition, which is hosted by Morning Call columnist Bill White.
The event runs 11 am to 3 pm Visitors can taste and vote 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event will also include live science shows.
