As the Obama v. Romney election neared, we knew we needed a pair of flavors to go head-to-head. For Romney, inspiration came easy. We made a very expensive flavor: Rom Raisin, rum-soaked raisins in a rum-and-vanilla-bean ice cream. Good, but not popular at all. For Obama, it took a while to come up with a fitting flavor. Then a customer reminded us that Obama keeps honeybees at the White House—and a microbrewery! So we came up with a sweet cream and Ommegang beer ice cream with pieces of our homemade honeycomb candy.
