These few days off in NYC have given me a few moments of joy. One, sleeping in. Two, ice cream.
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that a trip to NYC means Blacktap and other great frozen treats. This time around I passed on the Blacktap and hit up 3 new ice-cream shops instead!
#1 Ample Hills
#2 Ice & Vice
#3 DO, Cookie Dough Confections
My favorite was probably Ample Hills. Don’t get me wrong, they were all amazing. But the Do was a little sweeter than I hoped it would be. And the wait time/cost was a bit of a turn off. With that being said, I would go back in a heartbeat. Ice & Vice was delicious- but too much work. You pay for a scoop of ice-cream, then the cone, then the toppings (aka vices). It was tasty, but I honestly preferred the pie to the ice-cream. Now Ample Hills, the ice-cream was rich and creamy, and each flavor I tried was delicious. The cone was simple but satisfying. And it was reasonably priced. The only downside was not every location has every flavor, so don’t have your heart set on one flavor you see on IG, because it might not be there when you arrive…
Moral of the story. Another trip to NYC, another trip I spend the majority of my money on ice-cream and clothes at H&M.
