Ice cream you eat with your pinky extended
Scenario: You’re with your favorite person:
You: “Sweetie, let’s go out for my favorite: lobster and melted butter!”
Them: “Are you crazy?? It’s 110 degrees outside! It’s too darn hot!"
You: “OK, then how about some lobster ice cream?”
You heard it right. Lobster ice cream.
Pink Spot Coffee and Ice Cream in Phoenix has ice cream that’s made with lobster. Chunks of Maine lobster are mixed in with a sweet “double butter” ice cream (that tastes like French Vanilla) to produce a delicious blend of sweet ice cream and tangy seafood. It takes a bit of adjusting to the initial flavor combination, but after the first bite, you’ll like it.
Where to get a "Lob-sicle"
Pink Spot resides in a small building just off of Central Avenue and Thomas road. They’ve been in business for nearly three years and they pride themselves on their unique flavors of ice cream. Mexican chocolate, horchata, and habanero-peach sorbet are all on the menu. But it’s the lobster that brings people in.
How did they come up with such an unusual flavor? Mark and Julie (the owners) were searching online in June to find new flavors, and found a creamery in Maine that sells this specific combination. They ordered up several tubs sight unseen (and untasted), so when it arrived they were just as curious as they knew their patrons would be.
Do the patrons like it? They do! Pink Spot has already gone through several tubs of the lobster-dessert delight and, while I was there, several more people came in specifically to taste it. I’d say it’s a winner.
Pink spot serves more than ice cream, though. They also serve breakfast sandwiches, bagels, smoothies, and some great coffee. So even if you’re not up for a “seafood parfait”, there are plenty of other tasty items that you can choose from.
So when the heat is getting to you and you're feeling adventurous, head on down to the Pink Spot. With an ice cream flavor like lobster, you can’t go wrong.
