Pint of Ice Cream Ample Hills 6th birthday free ice cream + swag at orig Bklyn location

Taste of New York

Written By Jordan Slocum - May 26 2017
It’s hard to believe six years ago Ample Hills opened its doors (and four days later sold out of ALL the ice cream). Thanks to the overwhelming support and love from the community we haven’t closed our doors since.
Help us celebrate our 6th birthday by attending our Sell Out celebration event this Sunday, May 28th at our original Vanderbilt location (623 Vanderbilt Avenue). We start the day fully stocked in the dipping case and as each flavor sells out, the price decreases until its free. Yes, free! We will have lots of swag, Amployees and tons of ice cream party favors.
If you're not in New York and can’t make our sell out celebration, don't fret we also have a special present for you too. We are offering a taste of NY available online for nationwide shipping ALL summer long!
Did you know that each of our shops has its own unique flavor? Until now, these flavors have only been available at their inspired locations, but in honor of our 6th birthday, we are offering these flavors in a Taste of New York 4-Pack. This special four pack includes our brand-new Dekalb Market store flavor: Harry & Eigel’s Marbled & Malted.
The stories behind the flavors:
The Commodore // Vanderbilt : Salty honey ice cream with chocolate-covered potato chip clusters and honeycomb candy.
Our first shop on Vanderbilt Avenue opened in 2011. We used to make all the ice cream for Ample Hills in its 175 square foot kitchen. When we inevitably outgrew that space, we remodeled the kitchen to be more open and encourage visitors waiting in line to engage in the process of making ice cream. We make this shop’s flavor, The Commodore in this new (even smaller) kitchen. We drew inspiration from the avenue’s namesake, Cornelius Vanderbilt.
In his early years, Cornelius Vanderbilt ferried passengers across the East River. Years later, he turned to the railroad, where he amassed a great fortune, paving the streets in gold. And while he helped usher in the Gilded Age and built Grand Central Station, perhaps his greatest achievement was the potato chip. At a restaurant in Saratoga Springs, he went his fried potatoes back to the kitchen, demanding that they be “thinner!” “crispier!”... the rest is history.
It Came From Gowanus // Gowanus: Our darkest, saltiest chocolate ice cream with pieces of orange-scented brownies and hazelnut crack cookies with white chocolate pearls..
Our second full-time location in Gowanus was built with a larger production space to keep up with increasing demand. We opened our 3,600 square foot location a block away from the Gowanus Canal. The once thriving transportation hub is now a polluted Superfund site, a murky green colored waterway flowing through this evolving neighborhood. Playing off this new proximity and Brian’s history as science-fiction screenwriter, we created a flavor called It Came From Gowanus-- an imagined monster movie creature emerges from the trenches. (link to NY Mag)
It came from the deep. Up through the passages of time, out of the primordial depths, pitch-dark, mysterious and all-powerful. It came from Gowanus.
The salty and bittersweet chocolate ice cream is our darkest ever, filled with orange-scented brownies and hazelnut crack cookies. We added white chocolate pearls as a nod to the oysters tasked with cleaning up the waterway.
Floatin’ Over The High Line // Bubby’s High Line: Root beer ice cream made with Bubby’s root beer syrup, mini marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles.
Our second Manhattan location opened just this month at Bubby’s High Line. Bubby’s is a New York institution, known for delicious brunches and homemade pies. Our new shop is within the High Line restaurant, serving 12 flavors, pie sundaes and pie shakes. This location’s flavor Floatin’ Over The High Line speaks to classic Americana, nostalgic soda fountains-- it’s a root beer float reimagined! We make the base with Bubby’s root beer syrup and fold in mini marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles.
Harry & Eigel’s Marbled & Malted (new!) // Dekalb Market Hall: Made with Junior’s marbled cheesecake! Chocolate malted ice cream with pieces of Junior’s marbled cheesecake and chocolate crushed malt balls.

Harry Rosen opened Junior’s restaurant in 1950 and later hired master baker Eigel Peterson. Together they created what would soon be known as the best cheesecake in New York City. “Harry & Eigel’s Marbled and Malted”, a chocolate Malted ice cream with pieces of Junior’s marbled cheesecake and malted milk balls, pays homage to to this iconic restaurant, a relic of Old Brooklyn that continues to thrive, maintain its authenticity and serve amazing cheesecake. And lucky for us, will be our brand new Dekalb store flavor.

We hope for many, many more ice cream birthdays in the future. A big thank you to all our loyal customers and rock star Amployees. We couldn’t do ALL this without you. We hope you enjoy this taste of NY (and a little spirit of Ample Hills). Happy 6th!

Smile National Ice Cream Day Free Ice Cream Giveaways In NYC July 16 2017

From Thrillist: Here's Where You Can Get Free Ice Cream in NYC for National Ice Cream Day

By Joe McGauley Published On 07/14/2017
In case you needed another reason to look forward to the weekend, this Sunday, July 16, is National Ice Cream Day, and you know what that means: free ice cream, y'all. Joining a whole bunch of national chains, a slew of local vendors around the city (including a few or our faves) will be celebrating by doling out gratis scoops and running special promotions, so it may be wise to slip into a pair of drawstring shorts before you head out.
Here's where to hit, and when:

Local free ice cream deals

Where: Grand Screen Plaza, 851 Sixth Avenue

Blue Marble
The deal: Friday through Monday at their flagship, you'll get a free pint of butter pecan when you spend $10 or more, and on Monday they're handing out free mini scoops to the first 100 customers. On Saturday from noon to 4pm, they'll be serving up samples outside the Whole Foods in Gowanus, and on Sunday, they'll be doing the same at the Tribeca location. On Sunday, they're also offering a "top-secret deal" at Whole Foods in Tribeca, which you'll have to ask the scoopers about.
When: July 14-17

Default From The Phin & Phebes Stand

The event at Story was a multi-company promotional event (the rose served was a wine from South Africa called Lecker, which was trying to promote its brand in the United States). Tastes (in tiny plastic spoons) of Phin & Phebes ice cream were free, but to get a full-sized serving one had to buy something from the pop-up shop (many food-themed, particularly fruit and vegetable-related items) and receive a wooden token with the jet.com logo (they were promoting themselves, too.) The little ice cream stand outside of Story stocked a limited range of flavors: Pistachio Honeycomb (made with pistachio butter and Brooklyn-based Liddabit Sweets Honey Comb candy), Chocolate with salted caramel, a mint flavor with gluten-free chocolate cookies in lieu of chocolate chips, and a strong malted vanilla flavor with bits of chewable cookie dough, which I ended up liking more than I thought I would.
