I love checking out homemade ice cream shops. The interest started a few years ago. During a trip to Taiwan, we stopped for ice cream and I was amazed at all the flavors offered. It put Baskin Robbin's to shame. After that I became obsessed with trying new ice cream flavors. I soon discovered that homemade ice cream shops were my best bet for trying a lot of unique ice cream flavors.
So on my trip to Seattle, Molly Moon's Creamery was a must stop. For a while, Molly Moon's was serving ice cream for breakfast, but by the time I got to Seattle, this was no longer the case. Too bad.
We went to Molly Moon's and were surprised at the long line that awaited us. Despite the chilly weather, quite a few people were waiting for ice cream. And despite all the nice seats inside, most of the Seattleites chose to eat their ice cream out in the cold.
I took one look at the menu and was pleased to see flavors I'd never tried before. Some that caught my attention: cucumber sorbet, sweet basil and balsamic strawberry.
In the end I settled for sweet basil and honey lavender. Each scoop was huge. I thought it was interesting that two scoops was $5, but a pint is only 50 cents more.
I was surprised at how creamy the ice cream was. Creaminess is something that is sometimes sacrificed with homemade ice cream shops. But Molly Moon's offered some of the creamiest ice cream I've ever tasted. I couldn't believe it was homemade.
I thought the flavors were a bit mild. I couldn't really taste the basil that much in my sweet basil, but it tasted good.
BF opted for vanilla bean and theo chocolate. He likes the classics. We had our ice creams on freshly baked waffle cones. Yum.
If Molly Moon's was around in San Diego, I'd definitely take home some pints.
