Caramel! Action!’, her custom flavour “features a mix of vanilla ice cream with salted caramel swirls, graham cracker swirls and gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough”. DuVernay’s ice cream will have milk-based and non-dairy options for consumers and will ship across the nation at the beginning of January.
