Since the world descended into total chaos this week, the best thing would probably be to hide in bed all day with junk food and a Gilmore Girls marathon. Honestly, nothing can heal hearts like Luke… or food. As if you weren’t already hyperventilating about Year in the Life, the GG goddesses are really blessing us this holiday season, because now you can eat your very own Gilmore Girls ice cream. Say what?! Yeah. We’ll all be snack queens just like Lorelai and Rory soon enough.
Ample Hills, a creamery in Brooklyn, has created “They Scoop Gilmores, Don’t They?” which is of course a word play on your fave episode “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?” On top of the name and packaging being literal perfection, the flavor is right on point. According to Ample Hills it’s “Coffee (of course) chocolate pudding ice cream (because Emily is trying it after all) but oy, with the snickerdoodles already—topped with pink [Pop Tart] sprinkles.” How they managed to fit so many flavor references in one tiny pint we don’t know, but we’re so excited.
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!
It’s available for nationwide shipping right now, so what are you doing girl? Get on that! The closer you can get to the Stars Hollow life, the better.
