If you tuned in to the latest episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” you may have caught a glimpse of frozen treats made by an Omaha company.

“We got personal Facebook messages. They said, 'I swear we just saw eCreamery on the Kardashians.' We laughed and had no idea,” said Becky App, who with Abby Jordan owns eCreamery, the Dundee ice cream and gelato parlor that also has an online shop.

After watching the episode that aired on E! on June 9, App and Jordan realized that friends, family and customers were right. Two custom pints called KKTM — which stands for “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” another one of the famous family's reality shows — made an appearance when Rob Kardashian opened the freezer and grabbed one.

App said she and Jordan were as surprised as everyone else, saying, “We didn't pay for product placement or anything.”

Following the episode, eCreamery wrote to the show's producer Ryan Seacrest for his permission to acknowledge that it was indeed their product. App said eCreamery doesn't talk about client orders unless it has written permission.

“He said, 'Go ahead. (The Kardashians) loved it,'” she said. The specialty pint was actually a gift to the famous sisters from Seacrest, who App called “a really good customer to us.”

App wouldn't disclose what flavors make up KKTM, but said she's gotten plenty of inquiries about its big moment. The pint was on “for just a millisecond,” but that was long enough for plenty of viewers to clearly see the eCreamery logo, she said.

“It's been funny,” she said. “I can't believe how quickly the Kardashian news spreads.”
