Scoops Ice Cream Sandwiches!! Holy Schmoly!!

Friends, I'm very excited to tell you all that Scoops -- LA's most innovative and friendly ice cream shop -- and Spork Foods, an up-and-coming vegan food company from the delightful Heather and Jenny Goldberg (you've read about Jenny's dessert alchemy here before), have teamed up to bring feel-good deliciousness to a whole new level. Scoops will be featuring ice cream sandwiches with the Sporks' oatmeal white chocolate chip cookies, as well as chocolate cupcakes with a scoop of ice cream on the side (quite the dainty dessert, no?). I've had these cupcakes before -- they are moist and profoundly chocolatey. They will make you question your notions on vegan foods (unless you already have really positive notions about vegan foods..). Needless to say, I'm stoked.

Scoops is at 712 Heliotrope Ave., just north of Melrose. They are closed on Sundays.


  1. I have this idea for an ice cream hamburger, people at Scoops and the other place feel free to use my recipe, making no ammendments or alterations:

    Oatmeal Cookie (2)
    Choco Ice Cream (shaped like a patty)
    orange ice cream (cheese)
    mint ice cream (like lettuce)
    cherry " " (tomato)

    This can be served with wafer sticks shaped like fries, but I wouldnt suggest it.

  2. if a sandwich is good and a hamburger is better, maybe try making an ice cream party submarine sandwich. Hell Yeah!

  3. Dougdave, now thats just ridiculous. You need to learn when to just like leave well enough alone.
