New City Microcreamery steeps their ice creams for 24 hours, then freezes them with liquid nitrogen - supposedly that’s why their scoops are so rich and creamy.

And from our experiences with the salted Oreo, ginger lemongrass, and peanut butter brownie flavors, that involvement is certainly not in question.
