What is your favorite flavor at SCOOPS?

Went there for the first time. Tasted quite a few flavors and got two scoops--Brown Bread & Pistachio w/ Rose Water! Yum! Bought a pint of Lychee/Guava sorbet to take home. Have to go back to try more. What is your favorite flavor?

  1. Holy Cow!!!
    I love Scoops!
    My favs:
    Brown Bread
    Vanilla Bean/Jim Beam
    Now, after reading the flavors you got to try, I may hunt them down tomorrow.
    Lychee/Guava?...could it get any better than that on a hot summer day...can't wait to try it.
    Love Rose water anything...and with Pistachi...geepers, that sounds so good.
    The only things I've gotten more than once were the Brown Bread and the Vanilla Bean/Jim Beam...I've had some others that I've really liked (Hazelnut/Cappuchino, Date/something) but haven't seen them again...they change up quite often but never had a problem finding something else that was super-good.

      You got to run for the lychee/'s heavenly!!!

        with your proclivity for saffron, rosewater, and pistachio, you sound like you'd love persian ice cream. saffron and rosewater are always there, sometimes pistachio, plus also cardamom. ever been to mashti malones?

        (also my favorites at scoops are anything maple, and the yerba mate/banana -- it's amazing)

          Good Morning tannazie,
          Yes, I've been to Mashti Malones and I guess I can't get over the rude brats that had been behind the's hard to enjoy tasty ice cream when someone's bad attitude leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
          I prefer to do the long drive to Scoops where everyone is pleasant and the ice cream is super yummmy and there is always a new flavor adventure waiting...yum.

            yeah, what is it with those kids? I've had the same experience. But the older guy in Hollywood mashti's is great!

            By the way, many Whole foods now carry prepaked Mashti's top mango and ginger rosewater.

              Hi Diana,
              Don't laugh, I don't own a freezer....everyhting is fresh fresh fresh in my house...otherwise I'd have ice cream thighs and that doesn't look all that impressive on a personal trainer.
              I actually like the gelatto at Whole Foods...they sometimes have lavender and rosewater and they are always pretty cheery, happy people

              1. re: tatertotsrock

                I'm not laughing. I think it's a good way to eat.

                You work in the fitness industry too? Cool!

      2. Tarot, followed closely by pumpkin chestnut.

          2. Anything with a coffee flavor. I don't need a sample.

            1. I dunno, I've tried twice and I can't seem to get there. We keep getting lost, which is odd, since it's right on Hyperion and Melrose in K town.


              One day....

                heliotrope and melrose.

                712 N Heliotrope Dr. Los Angeles, CA 90029

                put me down for one passionfruit/mint. holy moly.

                1. re: moeberg

                  Which explains why I keep getting lost. I KNEW it was Heliotrope..but when I go to look for it, my brain says "hyperion"

                  I do this all the time.

                  There is (or was) a place on the Santa Cruz pier called "Gilbert's". My brain decided it was "Humphry's". I never could call it Gilbert's. Luckily, all my friends knew what I was talking about.

                2. re: Diana

                  THAT's where you've gone astray; it's on HELIOTROPE just north of Melrose. . .
