In case you didn't know (shock!), Gilmore Girls is coming back for four more episodes on Netflix at the end of this month. This is very exciting news. It's time to start planning what you'll eat during this special binge-watching occasion, and I found just the perfect thing to add to your menu. As of this week, Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn has released a Gilmore Girls-themed ice cream and it actually sounds pretty perfect.
Thank you to all those fans who participated in our #GilmoreGirlsIceCream contest! After combing through over 2,500 entries, we are thrilled to announce the winning flavor! They Scoop Gilmores, Don't They? Coffee (of course) chocolate pudding ice cream (because Emily is trying after all) but oy, with the snickerdoodles already— topped with pink [Pop Tart] sprinkles. There were so many excellent options, puns and flavor combinations that we couldn’t choose just one. The winning flavor is an amalgamation of three amazing suggestions: @pauline__beal’s allusion to Emily’s attempt at chocolate pudding, @ryebecca’s ingenius “oy with the snickerdoodles already” and @jjjmmd’s name— a reference to a reference to a reference. This flavor will be available at all our NYC scoop shops beginning this week and is available for nationwide shipping now! You can order individual pints in a Choose Your Own Story 5-Pack or opt for a Gilmore Girls-themed 4-Pack: Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow (name suggested by Rebecca Phillips). Copper boom!
Ample Hills ran a contest to find the best name and flavor combination for a special Gilmore Girls pint. They received over 2,500 entries, and ended up combining three awesome suggestions to create "They Scoop Gilmores. Don't They?" Ample Hills describes the ice cream as "Coffee (of course) chocolate pudding ice cream (because Emily is trying after all) but oy, with the snickerdoodles already — topped with pink [Pop Tart] sprinkles."
The three contestants who won are @pauline__beal for her chocolate pudding idea (a reference to Emily's attempt), @ryebecca for coming up with "oy with the snickerdoodles already," and @jjjmmd's name for the ice cream (a reference to an episode name in season three).
Don't live in Brooklyn? No worries. You can also order this special pint online as a part of a five-pack for $45, or get the special "Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow" pack, which includes two Gilmore Girls pints alongside a "No Sleep Till Pumpkin" pint and a "Snap, Mallow, Pop!" pint for $36.
