Thank you Spring, for finally coming around. We were expecting more April showers, but we’re not complaining! We took all that sunshine and packed it in May’s pints.
Flavor of the Month: Flavor #109. Bee Stingsalted honey ice cream with caramelized sunflower seeds
Sugar, oh Honey Honey. You are my candy girl, and you got me wanting you. Word to the wise, this pint is best consumed while tuning into this classic by the Archies. We’ll get you wanting us, that’s for sure, once you take spoonful this salty-sweet, caramel-honey, sunny sunny pint. A perfect pint for a picnic in the park with your Sugar.

Let us tell ya ‘bout the birds and the bees, and the flowers and the trees. They’re all going into this month’s flavor creations. (Minus the birds, ew.) We’re got a pair of pints perfect for your next primavera picnic. First on the menu is the Bee Sting, an adaptation of a flavor suggested by a tumblr fan. Salty sweet and sunny, one bite of Flavor #109 will get you wanting more. And then Flavor #110, is Cara Cara Creamsicle - modeled after a fave childhood treat, this pint is creamy vanilla ‘scream, ensconed by an icy cool Cara Cara orange sherbet.
See ya in Sheep’s Meadow!

Sorry to go MIA on y’all! We were busy serving up ice cream around town last week with our new friends from overseas, The Guardian. We’re back now and wanted to give you guys the inside scoop! Flavors included EBT (a classic English Breakfast Tea of course), MegaByte (a vanilla fondant ice cream with a mix of toasted nuts, toasted seeds, and chocolate chips), and Culture Clash (our Signature 5-spiced chocolate ‘Scream). Which would you go for?

STEP 4 - To pack the pints, we do it by hand. They definitely sell molds for this, but we went real hand-crafted. First we pack the chocolate ‘scream and let it harden. Then we add the fresh-churned vanilla to the other half.

STEP 3 - It’s one half chocolate, and the other half is a vanilla fondant, with powdered sugar in the base. We churn that up and add chunks of Black and Whites from our new friends at Glaser’s Bakery on the Upper East Side. 
Glaser’s is known for having the best B&W cookies in town. And we can attest to that. The frosting is perfect chocolate, perfect vanilla icing, the cookie is like a mini cake, super moist. And it’s now wonder they’re perfect. Glaser’s has been cranking these cookies out since 1902. In fact, we just helped them celebrate their 112th anniversary on April 2.

Flavor of the Month: Flavor #108. Black & White Pintone half chocolate shortbread ice cream, one half vanilla fondant ice cream with chunks of black and white cookies 
Is there anything more New York than New York? And is there a cookie more New York than the Black and White cookie? A spongey shortbread cookie, dressed in perfect halves — chocolate fudge and vanilla fondant. Inspired by this iconic NYC treat, we crafted the Black and White Pint. Half chocolate shortbread, half vanilla fondant, and chunks of Black and Whites from 1902-established family-run bakery, Glaser’s, in Yorkville (that’s the Upper East!). What side will you eat first?

STEP 5 - We label each pint by hand with a custom label for each pint. Then, naturally, we pack each pint by hand. How’s that for a Mint Chip makeover!?
