WOOHOO! Ice cream! No, this isn't a beauty post. But I'm a beauty/life blogger, and ice cream is a huge part of college life. It's the fuel behind last minute papers and power reading.
I found out about Scoopsies through the Boston Bloggers Facebook group. Being a college student who LOVES ice cream, I was naturally interested in an ice-cream delivery service. It's a start-up company based here in Boston. The company delivers to Cambridge, Somerville, Allston, Brighton, Newton, Brookline, Watertown, Back Bay and Jamaica Plain.... but the important part is of course that it delivers to Boston University.
Chloe, who is the mastermind behind all the delicious ice cream, isn't planning on opening an ice cream shop. However, she started the 100 Scoopsies project (1 year to make 100 flavours). It was successful, and now it's an ice cream brand. I think it's cool that she gets inspired by basically any sort of food, and travelling really helps her come up with new flavours.
What's also cool about Scoopsies is that there are vegan options! I'm not vegan, but I like using vegan products and eating vegan food. The Vegan Turkish Coffee ice cream looks simply amazing-- and I love Turkish coffee! Chloe also tries to use local ingredients, which is good for the environment.
The pictures are Chloe's... I've been eating it straight out of the pint, and it's darn good that way too.
I requested a pink of Smoked Sea Salt Caramel, and it did not disappoint. The ice cream was wonderfully creamy without being overly heavy. The flavour was a bit of an acquired taste. My roommates were put off by the "smoked" aspect of the ice cream... which is precisely what I loved about it! Smoked Sea Salt Caramel has a wonderful depth to it. It combines my three favourite things: caramel, salty foods, and smokey foods. YUMMY! I must confess I ate through half the pint in one sitting. It's that good!
