It's National Ice Cream Month people!
Here are a few of my favorite scoops.
5. Working Cow- Florida
Fav Flavor-Cappucino kahlua. Cappa Kahlua with sweet chocolate chips, and a chocolate swirl blended into our natural coffee flavored ice cream....Oh Yea
4. King of Pops- Atlanta/Athens, Georgia
Not technically ice cream but DELICIOUS! Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Lemongrass are my late night vices.
3. Honeysuckle Gelato- Atlanta, Georgia
All of their flavors are incredible but the Mango-Peach blew my mind.
2. Hand Spun Milkshake- any old school soda fountain
During our summer vacation, my grandmother loved to treat us to a milk shake from the old soda fountain Gilcrist in Mountain Brook Village. Chocolate of course.
1. High Road Craft Ice Cream- Atlanta, GA
I first discovered High Road at Heirloom Cafe in Athens, Georgia. I saw them again at Food Blog South in January...yes it was freezing outside but sample cups of Aztec Chocolate and Vanilla Fleur de Sel seemed like a necessity at the time. To my surprise and delight they were featured at the first Southern C Summit event on Jekyll Island at the oceanside beach luncheon. I have loved every flavor I've tried from them and can't wait to see what flavors they create next! Fav High Road Flavor so far- Sweet Pea and Mint Sorbet. So unbelievably refreshing, sweet, and herbal- makes the perfect ending to a summer meal.
Have a great weekend y'all!
