Molly Moon’s Ice Cream – We All Scream?

I was strolling around University Village on Sunday with a couple of my friends. They wanted to stop for ice cream at Molly Moon’s. I have lived in the Seattle area for 3 years now & this was my first visit to Molly Moon’s. I am admittedly not the biggest fan of ice cream. I do not dislike it but it is never my first choice as a dessert. However, I decided to at least sample a flavor or two since my friends were partaking. They had some very interesting flavors up for offer, both seasonal & everyday. I found the “Cheese platter sampler” particularly interesting; one of the flavors included is Cherry Goat Cheese, which is made with Gothberg Farms Chèvre. I ended up sampling Balsamic Strawberry & stopped there. It was delicious. It is not overly sweet in the way a standard strawberry ice cream is. It also has an incredible depth of flavor. All in all I quite enjoyed it. The staff was friendly, the shop was clean and smelled like waffles as they were making the waffle cones right in front of me, the ice cream is quite good & different than the standard flavored fare offered by most places. They have vegan flavors as well and their website allows you to suggest flavors. From reading their website and blog, it’s very easy to ascertain this company is committed to local, organic, quality ingredients from the milk and honey to the lavender and berries…that is reason enough to try & love them. Not to mention the absolutely adorable logo and cute cups the ice cream comes in. 20140505-132518.jpg 20140505-132741.jpg 20140505-132755.jpg
