Ample Hills Creamery Salted Caramel

I know ice cream season is just about over, but that doesn’t stop me from grabbing a cone or two. With all my traveling this summer, I feel like I missed out on my NYC summer, anyway!

When I found myself in Prospect Heights, it was a rainy day. Actually, that’s an understatement. The heavens had opened, and with a crash of thunder and lightening, buckets of water poured over Brooklyn. The sky had better water pressure than my apartment’s shower, seriously.

Still, I made my way to Ample Hills Creamery with the certitude of Lewis and Clarke looking for the Western Passage.

This ice cream shop–which opened in 2011–serves up a cornucopia of flavors made in-house of hormone- and antibiotic-free eggs, cream and milk. There’s Sweet Honey, a White Russian flavor called The Dude, The Munchies with pretzel and potato chips, Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, and so many more.

I actually made myself sick. I mean, I had to try two different flavored scoops, right? Everything in moderation–including moderation.

When I was done, I put my waste in compost and recycling, and sailed out into a bright, dripping, after-the-rain day with birds chirping. Perfection.
