TGIF ~ Ice Cream (Roll ‘n Scoop)

Mango ice cream and strawberries

Not just any ice cream ~ we’re talking rolled and scooped. Yeah, I had no idea what that was about either, but Tuesday was a hot day, too hot for a cupcake (wut?), and Google said this place was the closest ice cream shop to my location near Newport Beach. So I bravely ventured forth to Roll ‘n Scoop.

First, I got lost in the parking lot. Google told me to turn left at Triangle Square (yep, Triangle Square ~ this is California), which I did, and then I went left again into the parking lot. RNS was all the way down at the other end, but it was only visible from the street. So I parked way too far away, and then I reparked and had to walk like 100 feet in the boiling heat around the other side of the building. May I remind you I still had a sunburn, so feeling the heat on my skin was not fun. Anyway, success! I entered the shop. It was terribly unimpressive, not what I expected at all. I figured a trendy ice cream place would be decorated like a cute cupcake store or something, but it was more industrial.

Second, I was completely clueless about what to order and how to order, but the ice cream man was super nice. He said most people like cookies ‘n cream, but I am not most people, so I ordered mango. He seemed happy about that, which made me wonder if I was the first person ever to get it. Then I asked for his help with toppings and he suggested strawberries. That sounded refreshing, so I agreed. It took a long time for the people in the back to roll ‘n scoop my treat, but it was worth it. This was probably the best ice cream I’ve ever had! So lush and bursting with flavor! The strawberries were tasty too. One of the most interesting things about this rolled ice cream is that it took much longer to melt than normal ice cream. I don’t know if it was because of the ingredients or the rolledupedness, but it was sure nice to slowly savor my snack without it turning to liquid at the bottom of the cup.

Third, I’m definitely going back again sometime. I’d like to try the coconut ice cream with chocolate chips and the green tea with crushed graham cracker topping. They also have coffee ice cream, hazelnut, and toffee mocha (plus a bunch more). Mmm! What would you choose? Oh, you can also get whipped cream if you want. Maybe next time…

  7. Sounds great. I don’t think I’ve ever had rolled ice cream. I Googled “rolled ice cream” and there’s a place called Icicles, but it’s nearest location is 14 miles from where I live! 🙁

    Dang! I want ice cream now! But why does eating ice cream always make one thirsty? I always need water after ice cream 🤷🏼‍♀️
