Quick Bites from New York- Big Gay Ice Cream Shop
Here’s a little marketing tip for you… If you name your business Big Gay Ice Cream Shop, I will visit it based on that name alone.
It turns out that the name is a bit misleading.
Oh, it’s plenty gay alright, but big? Not so much.
Amongst the iconic gay culture images adorning the walls were menu’s of the items available that day. The choice for me was easy. First thing on the menu- The Salty Pimp.
The Salty Pimp is a cone filled with vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, and sea salt, dipped in chocolate. Perfection.
The dulce de leche is actually injected inside the ice cream, making these little pockets of sweet deliciousness that are hard to beat. The salt adds that little bit of zip much like a good salted caramel has, and the chocolate dip is fantastic.
Robyn decided on a Lovelet ice cream sandwich. The cream cheese ice cream sandwiched between red velvet whoopie pies was really rich and tasty when it warmed up a bit, but was too frozen to enjoy right away. So Robyn ate half of my Pimp while we waited. She then conveniently forgot to share the ice cream sandwich again after I got a first taste.
Then she stole my fur coat and purple fedora and slapped me across the face.
Now that’s a salty pimp!
