Seattle Small Business Shout-Out: Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream

May 31, 2009

Been a while since we had the scoop on Seattle Small Biz here at Living Small, and so scoop I shall give, in the form of a big, sweet shout-out to Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream. Round up the peasantry, you guys, cause I’m storming this ice-creamy castle, the lovechild of Molly Moon Neitzel and her locavore principles.

That’s right: not only is Molly Moon’s ice cream the most delicious frozen treat I’ve ever tasted — and believe you me, I’ve tasted a lot of frozen treats — it’s made with local, and, if possible, organic ingredients in small batches for the shop’s two locations. And the flavors? Mmmmm. Salted caramel. Strawberry balsamic. Honey lavender. Rosemary Meyer Lemon. The list goes on.

The sweet stuff comes in scoops (in compostable bowls or D-lish waffle cones) or in pints (I have four in my freezer right now. Above, three of them. OMG.), and the shops are open ’til late every day, so you can get your fix even after the sun goes down. Located at 1622.5 N 45th (Wallingford) and 917 East Pine (Capitol Hill); open daily from noon to 11 p.m.

    A special trip with me to Molly Moon’s Ice Cream parlor in exchange for enough Absinthe Mousse for all of your guests–deal or no deal?

  2. Jason said

    Don’t forget to try Old School Frozen Custard. I prefer it to Molly Moon’s and it’s closer to y’all!

  3. Choir: So, now that we’ve been to MM, how’s about that mousse?

    Jason: I pass Old School on my walk to work — I will definitely give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion!

  4. […] Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream: Since when does heavenly i.c. need an explanation? […]

  5. This sounds heavenly, wouldn’t mind trying that Balsamic Strawberry, they do say that this combination does work and they do have this in restaurants as a desert but not like this in the form of ice cream.
