Now You Can Have Ice Cream Delivered to Your Door

The signs of winter are everywhere. Fake Christmas trees are making their yearly descent from attics. Men dressed as Santa Claus are making their yearly descent into bottles of peppermint schnapps. Ice cream is, uh, showing up on doorsteps. Wait a minute. Ice cream is showing up on doorsteps?

It's true. An NYC-based company called Milkmade makes the ice cream and then they deliver the ice cream. It's a monthly subscription service, kind of like the DVD portion of Netflix only with approximately ten times the calories and fat. It costs you thirty bucks a month, which will net you two creamy pints of the good stuff. That's pretty expensive but, hey, you only live once. Spend it inside, gorging on entire pints of ice cream.

Right now the service is only available in New York City, but the company has started a "Lickstarter" to raise money to take this thing to the rest of the country.
