iScream Ice Cream is not just black owned, they are more specifically black woman owned! They provide fully customizable rolled ice cream and treats. Let’s get into it:
iScream Ice Cream presents a ‘stay for awhile’ vibe with lots of modern seating, board games, and a neon sign for all of your Instagram pictures. My favorite part of all of this was the menu and the creative names. Nobody wants to be at the register like “uhh I’ll have chocolate”. Instead, you’ll run into signature names such as Campfire Favorite, Old Town Roll, and Saturday Morning Cartoons. I always enjoy ordering something something creative and hoping it tastes good!
I had to order the Saturday Morning Cartoons and Campfire Favorite. Where do I begin? The Cartoon ice cream including fruit loops in the cream which I loved! The cream was natural and not store bought tasting. The fruit loops added a nice crunch between bites. Also they topped this with mini Pop-tarts, so I was on a sugar high for sure. It all came together well! My ass really felt like I was watching an episode of the Flintstones while eating that. On the other hand, I felt like I was outdoors on a high school camping trip trying to eat the Campfire Favorite. They really put toasted marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate chips with ice cream.. How could I not want to smile excessively?! The flavor ran deep, so every bite was heavenly. It wasn’t just ice cream, it felt like an experience. I’d take my family here instead of the zoo LOL. They just opened during a pandemic, owned by a black woman, and lots of options. Please don’t be surprised when you try this place, and I look at you like this..
Sweet Stack is an odd but fun inspired dessert bar in Atlanta. If there is one thing they know how to do, it is being innovative with their delicious ice cream! Let’s get into it:
As soon as I arrived at sweet stack, I noticed the youthful environment which meant the flavors would probably take me on an adventure. They immediately saw me grazing the menu and offered a donut sandwich. My crazy self entertained the idea..”yes! let me go ahead and get that”. I noticed they had cookie sandwiches also along with cones and cups. The customer service was so helpful, because I had no clue what the heck to throw on this donut ice cream sandwich LOL. You will find flavors such as Amber Rose, Black Panther, cereal milk, and many more. Also, THEY HAVE VEGAN OPTIONS. That’s always a plus.
Back to my freaky order, I got the donut sandwich with cookie monster ice cream along with a side scoop of Black Panther. They cooled the donut, so that it was more firm to hold the ice cream in place. The cookie monster flavor consisted of blue icing, vanilla ice cream, and cookie dough & Oeros. That first bite sold me that I was not that crazy, because it was delicious. The donut was not overwhelming the flavor of the ice cream at all. The ice cream was actually amazing! The Black Panther consisted of vanilla ice cream, hints of coconut, and charcoal. STRANGE COMBO I KNOW. However, it was extremely well put together. The balance of the flavors worked perfectly. The coconut was not overpowering at all. It was sweet with a touch of freshness! The charcoal was more so to add color to the ice cream. And before you all comment on having charcoal in ice cream, I must ask..
