I’m more of a savory than sweet girl. (That pertains to so many aspects of my life, I can’t even explain.) But you put “small batch, local, and seasonal” in one sentence and use it to describe ice cream I am so there.
There being Lick.
A tiny little store on South Lamar, next to Barley Swine, Lick makes honest ice cream — using only pure, whole ingredients — and you can totally tell. The flavors are to-die-for rich and smooth and fresher than fresh.
Their flavor selection is ever-changing and consists of everyday, seasonal, and dairy-free and vegan options (my mind can’t grasp either of those concepts, but if that’s your thing, then Lick’s your place). Goat cheese, thyme & honey. Dark chocolate with olive oil & sea salt. Caramel salt lick. Need I go on?
Brown sugar and butternut squash is my favorite flavor so far. Unfortunately it’s a seasonal flavor…and I bought the last two pints. Sorry ’bout ya.
If you’re in Austin and ever want to meet for ice cream, you know who to call and where to meet. If you’re looking for a place to take your honey on Valentine’s day, Lick is a gem.
