{oh joy eats} scoops in hollywood...


Ever since moving to LA, I've heard a million and one people tell me that I have to go to Scoops. A year and a half later, I finally made it to the legendary shop. It was much more low-key and less fancy than I had expected, but the custom flavors really did live up to all the hype. The flavors change every day, except for their signature Brown Bread flavor which tastes like a not-too-sweet French Toast topped with crispy crumbles. I also sampled the Salty Caramel, Yuzu, Poppy Almond, and Brown Rice Green Tea before settling on a combo of Brown Bread + Brown Rice Green Tea.


The Brown Rice Green Tea was like a frozen version of the brown rice tea you often get in Korean or Japanese restaurants with a meal. Punctuated by the richness of green tea, it was one of the best new ice cream flavors I've had this year. The only downside to their ever-changing flavors is that no two days are alike. So, don't go falling in love with one {oops, too late!} because you never know when your ice cream sweetheart will be back in your life again... — Joy
