For such a hot place, Austin doesn’t have much variety in the ice cream scene. Amy’s Ice Cream is the beloved ice cream of choice for the city, although it’s just not my thang. Don’t get me wrong, it’s ice cream and therefore delicious, but it’s richer and heavier than I prefer.
Enter Lick Ice Creams, the newest ice cream shop for the cool kids. With gourmet flavors like Spicy Coconut and Peanut, Sweet Cream Corn, Caramel Salt Lick, and Goat Cheese Honey Lime…whoa. This place is crazy.
Served in small scoops, much like gelato, this ice cream is delish! Even the Carmelized Carrots with Tarragon. Even the minty beet flavor. All the vegan flavors. Are you getting this? The flavors are weird and good. Just like Austin. And everything is natural, organic, and light. No junk.
I really dig the cow decor, too. Those little stools are for milking cows. Something I hope never to do.
The prices are not bad and they have a loyalty card which gives you two free scoops with every 16, which means every ninth small order is free. Sweet.
So you should go check it out and try it when you’re in South Austin.
And now for the bold statement: This is the best ice cream in the city…maybe all of Texas.
