More ridiculously good flavors - SCOOPS

J.L. Aug 10, 2008 08:33 PM

Hi gang,

Last week Tai the Ice Cream Maestro somehow convinced me to buy another 5 pints at Scoops again... Calorically, that's about a 85.02 mile jog. Ick.

Flavors this time around:

Mango / White Wine: Usually, the white wine in his white wine concoctions get lost or overpowered by the fruit, but not this time. Perfect balance.

White Chocolate / Sea Salt: Rich and complex, chocophile Mrs. J.L. confiscated it from me and I haven't seen it since.

Almond / Horchata: Very true to its label. Refreshing as heck on a hot humid day.

Blackberry / Triple Sec: Wow.

Beet / Cashew: My dark horse favorite. Neat combination.

Scoops - a gem in in our fair city.

    Sounds great. Completely agree that Scoops is a gem...one-of-a-kind.
    Problem is, I'm usually so stuffed after Pure Luck, not much room left.
    Somehow, though, I manage...

      Are they closed on Mondays now? The doors were locked this afternoon and the guy next door said they were starting to close Mondays.

        I agree: White Chocolate and Sea Salt is definitely amazing.

        I once had a Strawberry Chimay flavor that almost made me cry, it was that good. One of my favorite fruits and one of my favorite beers... Tai, you are the master!
