NYC Ice Cream: “Salted Crack Caramel” at Ample Hills Creamery Well Worth the Wait in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn
September 5, 2013
Among my crew of fellow foodies, Ample Hills Creamery gets talked about more than Miley’s twerkin. The flavor everyone raves about is the aptly named “Salted Crack Caramel,” because once you start eating, it’s very hard to stop. If you love the intersection of salty and sweet, this is the flavor you’ll be telling the kids about back in Manhattan. All you need to know is that the creamy caramel ice cream is loaded with crunchy bits of crushed Saltine crackers, also covered in caramel. Still unconvinced? Watch the video. Figuring out what to put on top of your ice cream is always a slight conundrum, but expertise must equate to proximity because my friend Suzanne, who lives right around the corner from Ample Hills, recommended hot fudge and she was spot on. Her favorite flavor is “Ooey Gooey Butter Cake” but sadly they were out of that when I arrived. If they have it when you’re there, get it. She has a track record after all.
