New fair food provides 'smoke and mirrors' experience
Nitro Ice Cream, a new food vendor at the Pierce County Fair this year, uses science to give customers dessert and a show.
Its ice cream is made from liquid nitrogen that turns into gas, flash freezes and creates a spectacle before being turned into food.
“There’s all kinds of steam and noise and smoke and mirrors and stuff like that,” said Jerome Sorenson, owner of Nitro Ice Cream. “Not only is it great ice cream, but it’s fun to watch it being made.”
