Ample Hills posted a notice today on Instagram detailing the rules of the contest. Here's the deal: Anyone can comment on the post with a flavor and a title. The winner will receive a free pint of the flavor. The contest lasts until October 31, so we have less than half of a month to dream up the perfect Stars Hollow scoop.
Competition is fierce already. Commenters have suggested flavors such as "Rory's Salted Bacon Caramel," "Coffee and a Shot of Cynicism," and — a classic — "Oy with the Poodles Already!" At this rate, the creamery could make a dozen flavors and have a total Gilmore Girls scoop-shop takeover.
This isn't the first time Gilmore Girls mania has infected a culinary establishment. Earlier this month, more than 200 diners across the country transformed into Luke's Diner. Alas, this takeover only happened for one day. Luckily, Ample Hills was around to keep up the Gilmore Girls culinary fervor.
Last month, the shop shared a few insanely delicious gifs with us — so while you wait to get a mouthful of creamy Gilmore Girls nostalgia, you can gaze longingly at ice cream. (Not that you don't do that every day anyway.) Peep the full post below, and add a suggestion of your own!
If you’re out on the road, feeling lonely and want something cold, all you have to do is name this scoop, and you'll win this in one fell swoop...It’s time to summon The Town Troubadour and call Michel to make a reservation at The Dragonfly: The Gilmore Girls are returning this Thanksgiving, and we are making a flavor to celebrate. Whether you are Team Jess or Team Dean, we are calling on you to create and name a flavor worthy of this Stars Hollow reunion. Put on your Sookie chef hat, fill up at Luke's Diner, stop by Doose’s Market, and tap into your inner Paris Geller to fire up that competitive spirit to produce pop culture references so rapid-fire it would make Lauren Graham blush. Comment below with your suggested names and flavor combinations. The winner gets a free pint, a cup of coffee, and an invitation to Friday night dinner. Contest ends 10/31.
