Spun Ice Cream, the anticipated made-to-order frozen sweets shop, will open on Wednesday, December 16. Liquid nitrogen will be used to cool the ice cream batter right there on the spot. Diary will come from Liberty Dairy Farms in Hico, Texas.

The opening seasonal gluten-free ice cream menu includes popcorn and gingerbread, while the toppings feature dairy-free chocolate shell, brown butter powder, and peanut brittle. Check out the full menu below. The special house combination is the Crackerjack, where popcorn ice cream is topped with peanut molasses brittle, caramel popcorn sprinkles, and brown powder. The first 200 customers on opening day will receive a special item, too.

Co-owners and sisters Christina Cheng (also the executive pastry chef) and Ashley Cheng (previously an Eater Austin contributor) both embarked on the project last fall. Spun is located next door to Salt & Time at 1912 East 7th Street. Hours will be from 12:00 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
