Big Gay Ice Cream Truck

Yesterday I planned to try a gelato popsicle from Popbar in Greenwich Village, but I was seriously craving a Salty Pimp from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. What to do? Well, do what any normal person would do. Get both.
Was it worth it?
Heck yeah. Because otherwise I would [...]

Humphry Slocombe

I first heard of Humphry Slocombe when its proscuitto ice cream was highlighted in the “Totally Unexpected” episode of Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”, and since then I’d been dying to make a trip to San Francisco to try it. Some people might have been turned off by the sight of [...]

Bi-Rite Creamery

It’s been a long, long time since my last post. Many apologies! I’ve been moving around for almost 2 months, and while that hasn’t stopped my quest to sample great ice cream everywhere, I’ve had difficulty finding time to keep this blog updated. This post has been in the queue for almost [...]

Lula’s Sweet Apothecary

I finally made it to “New York’s first vegan and dairy-free frozen dessert shop” a few weeks ago, and boy, was it worth the wait. Even though it’s currently being renovated and we were only able to order the soft serve from the front window, both the cake batter and strawberry flavors are so [...]

Max’s Best Ice Cream and Sandwich Shop

My friend and I made this colorful ice cream shop near the Vice President’s residence our last food stop in D.C. before heading back to NYC. Homemade ice cream (over 100 flavors throughout the year!) plus the fact that Max and his wife still run the shop themselves (this is their 19th year) were [...]

Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

This has long been on my list of “To Try” ice cream places, so I was very happy when my friend and I found ourselves near Van Leeuwen’s new brick-and-mortar shop in Brooklyn last week, and on a warm, sunny day to boot.
The shop is small and charming, with a delightful painting of their truck [...]

Emack and Bolio’s

Last week some friends and I decided to hit the St. Patrick’s Day parade in New York City. We had a late start, though, and by the time we reached the starting point at 44th Street and 5th Avenue we could see the tail end of the parade moving further away from us, traveling [...]

La Maison du Chocolat

Summer is several months away, but it’s never too early to make plans when it comes to food. Especially when it only comes around during the summer, like the ice creams and sorbet offered by La Maison du Chocolat, a gourmet chocolate shop in the heart of Manhattan.
My friend and I were in the [...]

Berkey Creamery

The second ice cream shop my friend and I stopped at on our way back to New York City from Punxsutawney, PA, was Berkey Creamery at Penn State.  The Creamery was first established in 1865 and moved into a standalone building in 1889, where it processed milk, churned butter, and offered instruction in dairying.  In [...]

Meyer Dairy

Last week, my friend and I made a last-minute decision to drive out to Punxsutawney, PA, from New York City, to check out the Groundhog Day festivities.  Yes, it may seem quirky, but how could we pass up the opportunity to experience a uniquely American tradition?  Involving a cute, cuddly creature?  And top hats??  All [...]
