It amazed me, all of the unique ice cream flavors at the quaint, tucked away Alleyway Ice Cream spot. Sure, you find lots of concepts similar to this in big cities, but Julian Hom’s ice cream doesn’t compare to anything I’ve seen upstate. His flavor combos are developed through the critical eye of a foodie and well-seasoned traveler. It’s a complete experiment of risk that he is always willing to take! So, I took it upon myself to experiment flavors with him. We both found beauty in the prettiest colors and textures imagining the final product to taste as lovely as it looked. Our first flavor was made with an elderflower ice cream base, edible flowers and homemade crunchy honeycomb. It’s floral and refreshing reminding me of a sweet cocktail encompassed in an ice cream scoop! And, as a gal who loves her toppings, this one should only be consumed solo. It’s rare that I ever want to do this!
Julian also wanted to create a flavor with some tang to it! Creamy goat cheese with swirls of pomegranate molasses gave this cone some edginess. It’s definitely a flavor that should also be eaten without any added toppings other than a little drizzle of more molasses.
