Latest Sweet Treat For NY
Scott and Kim Myles
In the words of the two creators of 5 Boroughs Ice Cream , a new hometown ice cream named for the ever-popular five boroughs that make up the city of New York:
"5 Boroughs Ice Cream began on our couch in Astoria, Queens. First as a hobby—then an obsession! We thought, "what if there was an ice cream flavor for every neighborhood in the city?" Inspired by the different neighborhoods and the people who live in them, we saw NYC as an inexhaustible source of flavors to create.
In the spirit of a city built on mom & pop shops (not Starbucks and Cold Stone!), we use locally made ingredients so that our flavors are as intense as they are unique. We handcraft our rich, 16% butterfat premium ice cream in small batches to ensure the taste and quality that we’ve all come to expect from the greatest city in the world."
And along with "local" flavors such as: Staten Island Landfill, SoHo Cappucchino, NYPB Chocolate and Peanut Butter Swirl, and Upper East Side Rich White Vanilla, these two treat innovators are 100% dedicated to giving back to their local community (read more about those efforts here.)
Needless to say, I’m proud to announce that 5 Boroughs Ice Cream will be available online later this year.
I'm totally looking forward, Scott and Kim!
