Family Ice Cream Fun at Scoops N Scoops in Irvine

Scoops N Scoops Ice Creams

this week, me and the boys headed over to Scoops N Scoops in Irvine to try out their ice cream which is created and frozen on the spot with liquid nitrogen. it was not only a trip to an ice cream store, but also a fun and exciting experience to watch how they make the ice cream right in front of you.

when we arrived, the boys immediately ran to the counter in excitement. clouds of liquid nitrogen steam streamed off the counter as the Scoop N Scoops employees created unique ice cream treats for waiting customers. if you have never seen ice cream made this way, then i highly suggest checking it out. it’s a really fun experience.

Scoops N Scoops Ice Cream

Scoops N Scoops ice cream is some of the creamiest, freshest ice cream you will ever taste.

the secret to their creamy ice cream and yogurt is in the rapid freezing of the mixture. they use liquid nitrogen at -321 degrees Fahrenheit to create the ice cream treats. liquid nitrogen causes the fat and water particles to stay very small, making the ice cream have no ice crystals, giving it its creamy consistency.

Scoops N Scoops ice creams and yogurts are hand-crafted and customized to any pairing you can think of – it is created with nothing but the best and freshest toppings and ingredients.

how does  Scoops N Scoops work?

first you pick your size, then you pick the ice cream or yogurt base. there are options of premium, coconut, non-dairy frozen yogurt, and organic. this is great for those with dietary restrictions. next you pick your flavors…there are tons to choose from. and if that isn’t enough, you can pick toppings. there are also add-on options such as waffle cones, chocolate bowls, floats and more. the possibilities are endless.

    This looks fun! I have three little girls and even though we have never been there before I’m sure they will love not only to try their flavors but also the whole process of making and freezing the ice creams infront of them will be a fun summer activity. I just join your blog a couple of weeks ago and I’m loving all the ideas. Thank you so much for sharing them.

    Looks like a fun experience. I want to try coffee flavor if they have it and my boys want rainbow and cotton candy flavors. Looks really cool.

  3. shannon says

    Can’t wait to try this out – looks so fun! BTW, It’s Macaron – not macaroon. 🙂 Macaroon’s are the things with coconut.
