Favorite Things: Frozen Treats from the Streets of DC

August 23rd, 2013 · 2 Comments

Our favorite things week moves right along with 3 of our favorite locally-made frozen treats of summer. Our love of dairy extends beyond cheese every once in a while, and we spend a fair bit of our summers searching out the best and brightest ice creams and other frozen goodies. Like these…


1. Roasted Strawberry Gelato from Dolcezza — if you missed it, you’re out of luck till next year as the strawberry season here is so fleeting. But, you really can’t go wrong with any of Dolcezza’s decadent gelato flavors. Chocolate mint stracciatella is always a favorite of mine.

Milk Cult Popcorn Macaron Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwich

2. Salted Caramel Popcorn Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich from Milk Cult — discovered at the Farm-to-Street Party, Milk Cult is a mobile ice cream sandwich and cold brew coffee company. What a coincidence, those may be my two favorite things.

3. Old school Root Beer Floats from Gigi, the retro Goodies Frozen Custard Truck we spotted last week at Truckeroo.

(Two favorites of previous summers still on our agenda: soft-serve at Northside Social and a visit to Pleasant Pop‘s not-that-new-anymore retail location.)

What favorite frozen treats have you discovered this summer?

    We are a DC area family too. Goodie’s milkshakes are one of our favs…discovered them on Saturday outside of Eastern Market and have hit them up at Truckaroo twice now. YUM. BTS milkshakes come in a very close second. So thick and cream and who doesn’t love that huge straw they give you! We are also slightly obsessed with the gelato at Killer ESP in Old Town. Red Velvet Cake Batter is to die for. Haven’t tried Dolcezza yet but it’s on our list.

    @Leigh — We haven’t been to BTS or Killer ESP yet, guess we have more homework to do! I do love the toasted marshmallow shake at Good Stuff, but it’s been a while since we’ve eaten there too. So many choices…..
