Saturday Sweets: Moo Cow Ice Cream

On this Saturday, I am driving back from my favorite place on earth. The good news is I will be back in less than 2 weeks for a long Easter vacation - it is my dear husband's favorite holiday by the way. The most exciting part about this recent trip is the discovery of a brand new ice cream shop. I have always said that St. Simons was lacking an extraordinary ice cream place. Nothing says beach quite like a great scoop of ice cream.

Driving in this past Sunday I almost jumped out our car upon seeing this sign:
After doing a little Googling (yes that is a real verb in my dictionary) and Facebooking I discovered that not only is Moo Cow Cream a super cute shop but a little laboratory of ice cream experiments. Their Facebook page comments had me at "candied bacon" ice cream. We ventured out on Wednesday for a little afternoon ice cream treat and it did not disappoint. After the first bite, I wanted to run screaming back into the shop and hug the necks of those glorious ice cream creators (they may have looked at me a little odd and then declare they would send the ice cream to me instead of me ever stepping foot in their shop again).

The flavors we all savored:
  • Candied Bacon
  • Chocolate Pinot Noir
  • Roasted Pistachio
  • Brown Butter Pecan
  • Guinness
  • Summer Strawberry
  • Peach
  • Cinnamon Buttermilk
They were all incredible and I love the uniqueness of their creations. It calls you to jump out of your chocolate-vanilla comfort chair and leap into a world of unknown. Bottom line: if they had a frequent scoop card, it would be burning a hole in my pocket. If you are headed within 1 hour of St. Simon's anytime soon you must get to Moo Cow Cream whether by boat, car, train, flippers, or your sweet feet. I am already x-ing off the days till I get to step back in the shop and discover a new flavor.
