Oh, Funky Ice Cream
Would these flavors count as "gourmet?" They certainly were far beyond the norm for ice cream flavors. When you think of Kemps, do you think of Sex on the Beach, Irish Carbomb, or Cement Mixer? Of course not: you think strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. Whee. You might even think of mint bon-bon or cookies 'n' cream, depending on your market.
But I remember a day when another manufacturer--I can't recall who--had developed an amaretto ice cream, and it was my holy grail to pursue. Eventually I did find it (one advantage to living in Minneapolis is that it's a test market, and some cool and bizarre food items come down the pike occasionally) and it was fantastic, and so of course it had to go away, disappear from existence.
