Obviously, the ice cream flavors are the best part of any visit to Scoops. They blend different flavor palettes to get non-traditional flavors that are NEVER gross and never too sickeningly sweet. Seriously, I've tried so many flavors (oh, did I mention you can get a spoonful of any flavor to try, for free? !!!) and expect some to be weird and gross but they never are: Spiced Beet
- Ok, this sounds so disgusting, right? It was awesome! It was beet-colored but not really beet-flavored. It mostly tasted like a slightly-vanilla flavor with some spices - maybe cinnamon and nutmeg. Not my favorite, but surprisingly good! Brown Bread
- Definitely one of my favorites. Tastes like a mild plain/vanilla flavor with Grape Nuts
topping the batch. AMAZING. Popcorn
- My NUMBER ONE favorite. To me it is most similar to a Butter Pecan- it is sweet but with a bit of a salty aftertaste to it. Mmm, sweet&salty comno rules! It's INCREDIBLE.
And, some more flavors that aren't too weird but still delicious:
Vegan Banana Oreo Earl Grey Chocolate Mascarpone Oreo
If you try Scoops make sure you go earlier in the day, and preferably on a weekday. As the day goes on the flavors tend to sell out (when I go 20 mins before closing they can be WIPED out.) Also, they tend to keep weird hours- normally they stick to the hours listed but there have been times I've tried to go at like, 3:30 PM on a Sunday and they were closed. Hm.
Scoops sells their ice cream by the scoop, so one scoop is $2.75 and you can upgrade to two scoops or three... However, one scoop means they put 2 HEAPING scoops in - it's a great deal AND you can mix flavors! If you want my advice, I'd say to go for the $6 pint - you can also mix 2 flavors in this size and they PACK. IT. with ice cream. Probably the most bang for your buck.
....Unless you're like me and eat a pint in one sitting with your ice cream-obsessed boyfriend. :) We're addicted!!
