Ample Hills Creamery

Even in sub-freezing temperatures, nothing is better than Ample Hills Ice Cream. Sold at three different Brooklyn locations and as of YESTERDAY, at the Gotham West Market in Manhattan, this ice cream is like no other. More like a pot of 24K gold in comparison to bronze.  Not only does it taste delicious, but it is the only ice cream parlor in New York City that makes ice cream completely from scratch on the premises. It gets its eggs and dairy from local farms, and each aspect of the ice cream is handmade with premium ingredients. Holy cow.


The store

The Gowanus Ice Cream Parlor on a recent cold, snowy, freezing weekend afternoon. Check out the roof deck up top. I want to have a party up there — for lazy people who don’t want to come to my party in Brooklyn, they will not know what they are missing. It is simply amazing.


Not only is the ice cream my style, but the decor, feel, and ambiance is too!

Fridge with pre-packed pints.

Fridge with pre-packed pints if you don’t want to wait in line! Otherwise, you can choose up to three flavors per container,  vertically or horizontally stacked. Hard to go wrong!

So rain or snow (or temperatures in the single digits), find your way to Ample Hill Creamery and get some ice cream. You can now order online and have it shipped across the country. $60 for 6 pints — best birthday present EVER. DO IT. GO NUTS. And whatever you do, make sure you order pints of Peppermint Pattie, Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, Salted Crack Caramel, and PB Chops. I also want to order (and devour) a cake. Why not? We only live once. Have a great weekend.
