An efficient manufacturing and distribution system for food products that are
normally served at temperatures well below ambient uses a two stage manufacturing
process. In the first stage, a neutral base product is prepared in bulk and is
shipped to point of sale at ambient temperatures by common carrier, private trucking,
parcel express, mail, etc. At the point of sale, a user selected quantity of it
is finished to the specification of the user by aerating it, adding flavorings,
mix-ins, etc. as desired, chilling it, and delivering it to the consumer.
