Have you been there yet? To Sprinkles Ice Cream. I assume you’re familiar with the now nationwide Beverly Hills based cupcake company, but did you know that they recently started opening up ice cream shoppes?
On our last trip to Fort Worth, we squeezed in a trip to the newly opened (Aug. 16) shoppe in Dallas. They had Thomas Jefferson’s Ice Cream Recipe on the wall. I’ll be adding that to my list of recipes to try. I hear the former president was a foodie.
It seemed their most popular offering was their cupcake sundaes, but I had to try a red velvet cone. I wish the red velvet flavor came across more, but the cone was delightfully thin and crisp. I think the fact that they serve “cake and ice cream” really sets them apart from other creameries, and the red velvet cones certainly don’t hurt.
Of course I had to use the cupcake ATM, so Anthony and I split a vanilla hazelnut chocolate cupcake. There’s a 50 cent premium for using the machine versus going in the store, but it functions 24/7.
If you’re lucky enough to live or travel to a city that has Sprinkles Ice Cream, I’d highly suggest going.
You can have your cake, and eat ice cream too.
