Ample HIlls Creamery - Disney's BoardWalk

Earlier this month, Ample Hills Creamery, which is based in New York, opened up a shop on Disney's BoardWalk.

We love ice cream, so we were very excited to check out Disney's newest ice cream parlor.  Before we arrived, I did some research on Ample Hills Creamery's website.  On their Frequently Asked Questions page, they state that their ice cream base is gluten free, but their flavors with cookies, cake, and beer are not.  They have at least one dairy free & vegan sorbet available at all their stores.  If you have a nut allergy, they note that they do their best to avoid cross contamination, but caution that their ice cream is not made in a nut free kitchen.

When I asked about gluten free options at the counter, I was given a page to look at that listed allergens for every flavor.

Flavors without wheat include vanilla, dark chocolate, peppermint pattie, PB Wins the Cup, cotton candy, butter pecan brittle, coffee toffee coffee, strawberries & cream, lemon sky, and Sally Sells Sea Shells.  Lemon sky is also free of milk, soy, and eggs.

The Sally Sells Sea Shells, which is described as fresh and fluffy orange marshmallow ice cream with housemade salty chocolate seashells, is available exclusively at the Ample Hills Creamery on Disney's BoardWalk.  My family was able to sample several flavors before they made their choice, but I don't like doing that, because of the risk of cross contamination.

My small size cup of PB Wins the Cup was scooped from a fresh container brought out from the back.

PB Wins the Cup features vanilla ice cream with peanut butter chocolate flakes and housemade peanut butter cups.  As you can see, the portion was anything but small, and there was no shortage of peanut butter chocolate flakes or pieces of peanut butter cups.

Overall, I thought the service at Ample Hills Creamery was great, and I enjoyed my ice cream, but it almost had too much candy in it for me.  My gluten-eating daughters both liked the cookies & cream, but one said she would have enjoyed it more with fewer cookies.  Next time, I hope to try the BoardWalk signature flavor, the Sally Sells Sea Shells.

What are your favorite ice cream flavors at Ample Hills Creamery on Disney's BoardWalk?
