TASTING FLIGHT
MilkMade ice cream flavors

 

One might think it a bit silly to trek from our home in the Upper West Side to Brooklyn for ice cream in the middle of winter but after drooling over MilkMade Ice Cream’s tumblr feed for months, it was time to give it a try in real life.  The journey was worth it and surely won’t be our last. MilkMade is a subscription-based ice creamery with two unique flavors introduced and delivered monthly to its members.  Each of the ingredients has a story, and you can follow along as new flavors are developed.

This spring, MilkMade opened its Brooklyn Tasting Room (204 Sackett Street, Brooklyn).  Located in beautiful Cobble Hill, the space is simply adorned with the focus on the ‘scream.  The scoopista generously encouraged us to taste multiple flavors before making a selection.

The flavors were unique, intense, and delicious.  I decided on the #106 Dark N Stormy, a refreshing combination of fresh ginger and rum.  My toddler had the #48 PB N Jupiter, salted peanut butter ice cream with a grape jelly swirl.  My husband had the #22 Scare-Amel Apple, a caramelized apple ice cream.  In his words, “That’s the best I’ve ever had” … and he’s had a lot.

ps Next time, I’m going for it and ordering the tasting flight, consisting of 5-mini scoops to try, micro-brewery style.  Because, why not?
