Happy July! Summer is in full gear and so are we. This month we’ve got our sunblock on, our Keds tied tight, and a gaping appetite as we head to the fair! We’re ready to test our luck on the ring toss, take a ride the Scrambler, and eat fried… everything. And we’re taking our members with us. Here are our flavors of the month for July:
#89 Strawberry Festival
strawberry ice cream with white and dark chocolate truffles
Alright, we have to tell you. We feel kinda badly about this flavor. No no, it’s not that it’s not super bright and creamy and delicious, and it’s not that we didn’t put our hearts into it. I mean, we de-stemmed pints upon pints of strawberries for it. It’s just that the strawberries we got from Norwich Meadow Farms are just SO fresh and naturally awesome, we feel badly for turning them into ice cream. But I guess we couldn’t pack just a pint of berries. So you’ll have to settle. For bright and creamy and delicious strawberry ice cream, with a festival of house-made white (Godiva) and dark (Mast Brothers) chocolate truffles. We’re sorry.
#90 Orange County Fair
fresh orange ice cream with a hint of vanilla
The Orange County Fair - a staple summer excursion growing up in Southern California. Since 1890, OC has been putting on its yearly show, and since 1983, we’ve paid it a visit just about every year. Though the name “Orange” County is hardly fitting anymore, we’re going old school and crafting up a signature orange ice cream to celebrate the summer. It’s fresh orange ice cream with a hint of Madecasse vanilla. If you’re like us, this one will bring you back to the youthful days of sipping on an Orange Julius in the warm California sun.
