Some may say it’s too cold for ice cream, but I’m a true believer in eating ice cream year round! Besides, the lines are much shorter in the winter ;-)

I’ve been hearing about Big Gay Ice Cream pretty much since I moved here, but this was actually my first visit inside. Before I even made it in the doors I spotted exactly what I was going to order. Their Apple Gobbler.

Big Gay Ice Cream really has it all… Bright colors, a cat chalkboard wall and hellooooo unicorn! Not to mention fun treat names featuring one of their signatures, The Salty Pimp. Even though I already decided on the Apple Gobbler before walking in, it only too a brief look over the menu to know I will be back!

So did their ice cream measure up to all of the press I’ve seen? Absol-fricking-lutely! Think about how great apple butter, bourbon butterscotch ice cream with pie piece and whipped cream sounds and then times it by 5, and that’s how delicious it was. The perfect combination of sweet and salty topped with the right ratio of creamy whipped cream and crunchy topping.

Chris settled on trying the Salty Pimp, which is vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, and sea salt dipped in chocolate. Another seriously delicious option too. 

You can find locations both in the East and West Village as well as the Ace Hotel in LA. With upcoming locations coming to Philly and LA. All I know is, definitely add this spot to your dessert list. YUM!

Update: I actually just found out that today, February 18th is actually National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. Sometimes these national days can be silly, but today was actually created to honor kids who have had cancer. Even more of a reason to enjoy something sweet today!
