But how much alcohol is actually in these delectable desserts? Enough to get you a bit buzzed, or just a trace?
via: Getty ImagesAccording to the company, these treats contain less than 0.5% alcohol by volume. For reference, the alcohol by volume for beer is around 4.5%, for wine it's around 11.6% and for liquor it's around 37% so 0.5% is really really low. Will you try these boozy ice creams, even if they don't pack an alcoholic punch?
