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.
