Just a few weeks shy of the release of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Ample Hills has some exciting news. The brand announced the flavor that won its epic Gilmore Girls contest. The champion is dubbed "They Scoop Gilmores, Don't They?" and features a coffee-chocolate pudding base with snickerdoodles and pink sprinkles. In the spirit of collaboration, the flavor is a Frankenstein of three different suggestions.
"They Scoop Gilmores, Don't They?" will be available in NYC scoop shops this week. Not in NYC? You can order a pint for yourself from the Ample Hills website. Lucky for Gilmore Girls fans everywhere, the creamery offers nationwide shipping. See the full announcement from Ample Hills, below.

Few things pair as well as a pint of ice cream and a really, really good television show. And Ample Hills, an ice cream shop in New York City, plans to combine two of the world's best things: ice cream and Gilmore Girls. To celebrate the arrival of the Netflix show Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the creamery is holding a contest for a GG-inspired flavor.
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!
