Ample Hills Creamery

Ample Hills Creamery

Location: Gowanus (Union Street and Nevins Street)

What We Ordered: Hannah - Snap, Mallow, Pop and Malty Salty Pretzel Punch; Jon - Chocolate Milk & Cookies and The Munchies

Since we started reviewing ice cream about two months ago, we've been asking people to give us recommendations on places we should visit.

OddFellows

Location: Williamsburg (Kent Avenue and N 3rd Street)

What We Ordered: Hannah - Lychee and Saffron Passionfruit; Jon - Miso Cherry and Milk Chocolate Caramel

We did something unprecedented this week and both visited OddFellows Ice Cream in Williamsburg separately and unintentionally one day apart. Call it fate. Call it coincidence.

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck

Location: Williamsburg

What We Ordered: Hannah - Pistachio and Gianduja; Jon - Mint Chip and Strawberry

We put on our best hipster outfits and took to the streets of Williamsburg this weekend to check out the Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck. While technically not a shop, Ice Cream O'Clock does not discriminate when it comes to ice cream. Hannah ordered a cone of pistachio and the special flavor of the day, gianduja. For the non-hipsters out there, gianduja is a fancy word for Nutella. Jon went with the classic mint chip and strawberry flavors.
