This was a total stumble upon on a recent walk about in DTLA. What makes them really unique is that their ice creams are all handmade, and churned through this magical bicycle and a set of gears that run the ice cream maker. Yes, its a human powered ice cream making operation, easier than a hand crank and way more entertaining. Imagine the calories you burn for the half hour or so you need to churn, why you can have the extra scoop! FYI…there is a sign up and waiting list to get your chance to peddle churn a batch.
This place is more than a Rube Goldberg gimmick, its actually good ice cream. Peddler’s Creamery is REALLY good ice cream and it won’t break the bank either. At $3.50 a single scoop, $6.00 for the double, it won’t break the bank and we thought how could we go wrong. Narrowing down the choices was difficult, but at that price we could splurge for the double scoop.
I went for the coffee and the chocolate mint cookie combo. I wasn’t disappointed, rich cream, decadent chocolate and mint cookies one and rich coffee in the other. My pal Ruth had the vegan options which are all organic and built around coconut cream and said they were pretty terrific too.
