Hey There!

Now, you know that I’m a tea lover, but you may have also picked up on the fact that I’m an ice cream fanatic!

I loooove ice cream.

Especially chocolate and variations of chocolate. If I’m trying to be good about my diet, I can’t keep it in the house (or I replace it with Halo Top) because it will-not-last long.

Usually, you can’t beat the flavors of Hershey’s hand-dipped ice cream, but lately I’ve been fortunate enough to stumble into a few independent ice cream stores. I’m not sure if this is a growing movement, but I sure hope that it is!

Mama and I both had a food item we wanted while on our weekend getaway; she wanted ice cream, and I wanted a scone. We couldn’t find me a scone, but on the way from Gettysburg to our inn there were a few different ice cream shops (one even boasted Vegan ice cream), but neither of us really wanted to fight with the on-street parking in town. We decided to go to the last shop before our inn, Half Pint Creamery. It was in a building off by itself, but each evening we drove by it had a line of people.

We stopped in late afternoon and had the place all to ourselves. There is no indoor seating, but they did have tables outside for you to sit and enjoy your sweet treat.

It seems like a lot of places were participating in Christmas in July, and Half Pint Creamery was no exception. The little girl behind the counter was dressed up like Santa. They had their Christmas tree up, and some fun seasonal flavors out like Buddy the Elf and Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows.

From their website, the owner of Half Pint Creamery Trish states that she “believes the childhood joy of ice cream has no age limit and aims to spread happiness by serving flavors with locally-sourced ingredients and building a locally-fueled community.”  And it has to be the quality of the ingredients and her imagination that created the amazing display of glorious, creamy ice cream that we had to choose from. They make their ice cream fresh every day, and the sheer selection of flavors was staggering. They carry 36 flavors at a time, rotating through their full flavor list.

With that many options, Mama and I both decided to indulge and get 3 scoops of ice cream, and I am SO glad that I did.

For my flavors, I got the Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, and Chocolate Marshmallow.

Y’all. That Peanut Butter Cookie Dough ice cream is the best thing I’ve ever tasted in my entire life.

I would drive to Gettysburg just for a giant bowl of it. No lie.

Their website lists all of the flavors they have, and if I lived closer I’d make it a bucket list mission to try all of them.
