Gilmore Girls fans can now add a sweet, chilly treat to their Nov. 25th shopping list.
To celebrate Netflix’s revival of the beloved series, Brooklyn-based Ample Hills Creamery announced the winning flavor for its Gilmore Girls Ice Cream Contest flavor—and the winning combo will come as no surprise to GG diehards. “They Scoop Gilmores, Don’t They?” is a mix of coffee and chocolate pudding ice creams, snickerdoodle cookies and pink Pop Tart (the Gilmore ladies’ favorite on-the-go breakfast food) sprinkles. “After combing through over 2,500 entries, we are thrilled to announce the winning flavor!” the creamery revealed on Instagram.
The winning ice cream, a play on the iconic episode They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?, will be available at all of the chain’s New York City locations and can be shipped nationwide.
In October, Netflix converted 200 coffee shops around the U.S. and Canada into mini versions of Luke’s Diner, Rory and Lorelai’s favorite Star Hollows eatery. And earlier this year, superfan Kristi Carlson announced plans to release the Eat Like a Gilmore cookbook, a compilation of new recipes inspired by the series.
Thank you to all those fans who participated in our #GilmoreGirlsIceCream contest! After combing through over 2,500 entries, we are thrilled to announce the winning flavor! They Scoop Gilmores, Don't They? Coffee (of course) chocolate pudding ice cream (because Emily is trying after all) but oy, with the snickerdoodles already– topped with pink [Pop Tart] sprinkles. There were so many excellent options, puns and flavor combinations that we couldn’t choose just one. The winning flavor is an amalgamation of three amazing suggestions: @pauline__beal’s allusion to Emily’s attempt at chocolate pudding, @ryebecca’s ingenius “oy with the snickerdoodles already” and @jjjmmd’s name– a reference to a reference to a reference. This flavor will be available at all our NYC scoop shops beginning this week and is available for nationwide shipping now! You can order individual pints in a Choose Your Own Story 5-Pack or opt for a Gilmore Girls-themed 4-Pack: Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow (name suggested by Rebecca Phillips). Copper boom!
If coffee ice cream isn’t your thing, you can also pick from other Gilmore-inspired flavors.
“You can order individual pints in a Choose Your Own Story 5-Pack or opt for a Gilmore Girls-themed 4-Pack Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow (name suggested by Rebecca Phillips) that includes two pints of the winning coffee chocolate pudding flavor, 1 pint of marshmallowy goodness in the form of Snap, Mallow, Pop! ice cream and 1 pint of No Sleep Till Pumpkin ice cream– coffee base with pumpkin ooey gooey butter cake pieces.”
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres Nov. 25 on Netflix.
