Gilmore Girls gets an ice cream flavor, and yes, there's coffee in it

Posted on

The votes are in for a Gilmore Girls-inspired ice cream flavor.

Brooklyn-based Ample Hills Creamery held a contest to determine a new flavor celebrating the upcoming Netflix revival of the popular series, and announced the winner on Monday.

The flavor is named “They Scoop Gilmores, Don’t They?” — a reference to the pivotal season 3 episode, “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?” which in itself is a reference to Horace McCoy’s novel about a dance marathon, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?.

Appropriately, the ice cream combines coffee (of course), chocolate pudding (because Emily really tried), and snickerdoodles (as in, “Oy with the snickerdoodles already!“), topped, of course, with pink Pop-Tart sprinkles.

Don’t live in New York? Don’t worry; the flavor is available now for nationwide shipping.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life arrives on Netflix on Nov. 25.

Thank you to all those fans who participated in our #GilmoreGirlsIceCream contest! After combing through over 2,500 entries, we are thrilled to announce the winning flavor! They Scoop Gilmores, Don't They? Coffee (of course) chocolate pudding ice cream (because Emily is trying after all) but oy, with the snickerdoodles already– topped with pink [Pop Tart] sprinkles. There were so many excellent options, puns and flavor combinations that we couldn’t choose just one. The winning flavor is an amalgamation of three amazing suggestions: @pauline__beal’s allusion to Emily’s attempt at chocolate pudding, @ryebecca’s ingenius “oy with the snickerdoodles already” and @jjjmmd’s name– a reference to a reference to a reference. This flavor will be available at all our NYC scoop shops beginning this week and is available for nationwide shipping now! You can order individual pints in a Choose Your Own Story 5-Pack or opt for a Gilmore Girls-themed 4-Pack: Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow (name suggested by Rebecca Phillips). Copper boom!
