In the 80's, I was part of a project team in Russia. At a dinner, our host ordered ice cream to be delivered with the appetizers. Each guest had a silver stemmed bowl of vanilla ice cream above our plates. We were advised that it would be our dessert. We watched it through the remaining courses, our host smiling at our confusion because nothing was happening to the ice cream although the silver was beginning to sweat. Finally we attacked the unmelted ice cream, which was cold and delicious. How? Why? It had a much higher percentage of butter fat and never melted...

I would much prefer a more simple and natural form of ice cream. The best vanilla I ever made had sugar, cream/half&half, vanilla bean and extract and slow churned. If you want to go to the trouble of making a custard with egg yolks that's a personal choice but not necessary. Ice cream is supposed to melt! I don't want to eat any chemically altered stuff that doesn't-what does it do once you ingest it?
