Called Lord Grantham's Upper Crust, this ice cream is strictly for the elite among us and has a rich, clotted English cream base with a swirl of graham cracker crust crumble. It is also dotted with caviar and gold leaf and must—must—be eaten with a mother-of-pearl spoon. There is also a flavor for the common people, Bates' Poisoned Pie. This flavor was suggested by Virginia Smith, and has a currant-flavored ice cream with a swirl of, well, poison. The poison serves two purposes. It evokes the pie that sent Bates to jail, and, also, it kills the people who eat it. Because they are common. And don't really deserve to live.
