Fun In Louisville #2-The Arctic Scoop! #IceCream

Today's Louisville feature is, without a doubt, one of my favorites for two reasons. First of all, I just love ice cream! I've tried to cut back a little, but believe me when I say I could easily eat ice cream every single day without ever getting tired of it. The second reason I loved this visit so much is because it was so unique! Let me explain a little bit about The Arctic Scoop first, and you'll see what I mean.

"Ice Cream has always been fun to eat, but now it is just as much fun to make. With the use of Liquid Nitrogen, as a freezing agent, we are able to custom make your ice cream right in front of your eyes. As we chill your cream, a cold cloud forms and we mix your cream into the freshest ice cream available."


We visited on a Friday evening after dinner, and were each able to choose an ice cream. You can choose form premium or low fat ice cream, or frozen yogurt, soy cream, or almond ice as your base. Then you can choose a flavor and add-ins. Alison recommended the Honey Cinnamon flavor, and I decided to give it a try. It was interesting to watch them actually make it right in front of you! It's a very quick process, but believe me; you've never tasted fresh ice cream like this in an ice cream shop before! I was surprised by how much better it tasted; very rich and creamy. The honey cinnamon may sound like a different kind of flavor, but you have to try it!! I love Mexican fried ice cream, and this has a very similar taste, minus the shell obviously. Finding little patches of real cinnamon in the ice cream was so delicious. The perfect way to cool off in the evening after a long day!




C mentioned that she was a chocolate and peanut butter person, so she had-you guessed it-the chocolate peanut butter combination! This is made with dark chocolate and has ribbons of real peanut butter running through it; so delicious.


M asked for the Mint Chocolate Chip, and we thought it was neat that this is actually made with peppermint oil, not an artificial mint flavoring. She finished this bowl of ice cream very quickly, but was kind enough to let me have a small bite first!

The younger M had the Elsa's Frozen Ice Palace, which is white chocolate and cheesecake. At first glance this may not appear to be anything more than just vanilla ice cream, but one bite and you've got both flavors bursting! I thought it was a great combination, but of course anything that mixes cheesecake with white chocolate has my vote!


The Arctic Scoop is definitely a place you will want to visit when you're in Louisville. We found it to be a busy place, but it's quiet and friendly, perfect for a family trip to the ice cream shop. It's the only place in town you can get ice cream made to your taste right in front of your eyes!
